    Seems like gun people can't even run a gun show without shooting each other. Warnings should be put out in the neighborhood when gun shows are planned so people can keep their kids indoors. Gun show shootings should be published, in fact, are the shootings pretty routine, are they planned or accidental? Should ambulances and medics be on standby at gun shows?

    I've been to several thousand and not once has anyone accidentally been shot or intentionally been shot.

    Information about where the shows are is a good idea. Ambulances should be on stand by as the recent shootings have shown.
    Then again, forget about the ambulances. These 'responsible' gun owners can take themselves to hospital if they are shot.

    Thousands of gun shows every year and only a handful of accidents. Perhaps you gun control nuts should line the streets with ambulances in Chicago where the inner city murders take place on a daily basis.

    It's been my experience that gun show promoters put up placards on every available utility pole weeks ahead of time...

    to the point that, if you didn't know about the event, you musta been comatose... :)

    Yeah, I have been going to Gun shows for years and have never seen or heard a round fired and I have been to several hundred of them. But I did see a outside hammer double-barrel 4 gauge shotgun once with a pair of 16" barrels, it was a commercial duck hunting gun and it attached with a round hole in the stock to a metal ball on a mount at the front of a boat. It was something to see!

    500 Hundred murders in Chicago.... a couple accidental gun show accidents.... Ya we need ambulances at the THOUSANDS of shows a year. There is one a week in several places in NC all year long as well as all the States. You morons are whining about an accident rate that is so miniscule as to be beyond meaningless.

    Remind us how women should be free to kill their unborn children ON DEMAND to the tune of millions and a couple accidents should make us worried about gun shows.

    A couple kids get killed and you demand a right protected by the Constitution be abridged or removed while demanding in the same breath that the murder of millions of unborn children be allowed across the Country.

    It is always the people who know very little to nothing about firearms that complain the loudest. It appears to go hand in hand with the voters whom know the least vote for Obama.

    Some years ago, I drove to an in-town auction... wife/daughter in tow.

    Looking for a parking spot, driving past the auction site... I see a guy checking out a rifle.

    He's got the thing pointed across the my car's path. I hit the breaks. And sit there.

    So I motion him to point the rifle away. He finally got the idea.

    ALWAYS keep a firearm pointed in a safe direction.
