CA County Weighs Ban On Gun Shows

On March 6, the Santa Clara County, CA, Board of Supervisors was scheduled to hold a public meeting to discuss a proposal by Supervisor Ken Yeager to prohibit the sale and possession of firearms on county property. If such a proposal were enacted, it would have the effect of prohibiting gun shows from operating at any county-owned fairgrounds.
In response, attorneys for NRA and CRPA have filed a joint-opposition letter highlighting the superfluous nature of the proposal, as California law already generally prohibits the transfer of firearms from occurring at gun shows. The letter also serves to dispel the many myths perpetuated by anti-gun advocates regarding gun shows by providing the Board with a comprehensive summary of the restrictions applicable to gun show promoters and vendors in California.
