California: Orange County Fairgrounds Board of Directors to Discuss Future of Gun Show

California: Orange County Fairgrounds Board of Directors to Discuss Future of Gun Show

On Thursday, May 24th, the Board of Directors for the 32nd District Agricultural Association and the Orange County Fairgrounds has scheduled an “informational” item on their agenda to discuss the Crossroads of the West Gun show.  While this does not appear to be a formal “public hearing” (where members of the public may provide comment) we encourage those who support the gun show to attend the meeting and show a strong presence in support of the gun show. 

This is not the first time the gun ban lobby has targeted gun shows, nor the only California gun show currently under attack. There is an organized effort across the state to stop most gun shows despite the fact that they educate, inform and provide a venue for supporters of the Second Amendment to come together and share a common interest.  Gun shows also provide an opportunity for parents to share their love of hunting, sport shooting, and understanding of constitutional rights with those of the next generation- something that the gun ban lobby seeks to end permanently. Common interests shared at a public forum are exactly what those against the gun show are trying to eliminate as part of their war on the “gun culture.” 

It is unclear whether the Board intends to discuss banning gun shows entirely, or simply seeks to provide information as to future discussions on the subject. The Board website gives notice that “At the discretion of the Board of Directors, all items appearing on this agenda, whether or not expressly listed for action, may be deliberated and may be subject to action by the Board of Directors.” So, given the ambiguity of their plans, it is important that all gun owners and supporters have a strong presence either at the meeting or by contacting the Board directly in support of keeping the gun show operational.  Feel free to use our TAKE ACTION Button below to contact the Board and urge them to continue their support for the gun show.
