Considering how polarizing the nra is, it doesn't suprise me at all... I wouldn't go to this event anyways to many people for my tastes.

With such a level of hate bring used in the gun discussions, I would probably make that decision.

For insurance purposes the rules are usually imposed by the convention center or facility they use.

That's it in a nutshell. INSURANCE. You would be surprised how many of the stupid rules and regulations that you run into are because of insurance.

I wonder actually how hard it is to find a major convention center or arena without a gun free policy.

That's most likely the issue.

The requirement that firearms be shipped to an FFL is totally normal. Ducks Unlimited conventions are the same way because they either don't have an FFL on site or they aren't allowed, by law, to conduct their business at that location.

The ATF has laws against a dealer conducting a firearm sale anywhere but a gunshow or his/her regular place of business.

Just because it's the NRA doesn't mean they're going to deliberately break the law.

Don't gun shoes usually draw the same size crowds?

And those guns are certainly functional..

Oh NRA, the irony is palpable.

Actually, gun shows don't allow people to bring in loaded guns unless they have a concealed carry permit and all guns are checked at the door.

The guns for sale are obviously functional but it's a different scenario.

They are probably trying to avoid a government false flag during the event....

Lmao ... guess they dont trust their own members with weapons after all .. says alot about the state of responsible gun ownership ..

They have done it to themselves. Ever sense Obama was elected they have whipped up a bunch of fear and panic in the gun community. Which has been great for firearm and ammo manufactures. The down side is it has attracted a large number of the crazies. Now the NRA has to sleep in the bed they have made.
