Good to see the "usual suspects" show up. What good would a gun topic be without Sam and his band of merry libs?
The important stuff we should be taking from this thread is this: opinions are like a$$holes, everyone has one. Go or don't go, that is on you and a choice you have to make. I can think of about 100 things more fun then taking my family to a fair full of people, but then again I am surrounded by 2500+ people 5 days a week, so my days off are spent as far away from other people as I can get!!
I don't spend my money with anti-gun establishments. Just like some people only buy American. It is my choice, and I stand by it. I wont bend or break for any reason. Of course, I could carry concealed and they most likely wont know. But then again, I would be spending my money on an anti-gun event and that wont happen. So I chose to walk on by. And anyone who isn't wearing a uniform and a badge isn't going to pat me down. Or check my wife's purse. Period. If I cant get in because I refuse a pat down, that is fine by me, but the first time a civilian attempts a pat down on me there are going to be serious issues. I don't ask for much, but keeping your hands off me is one of the things I demand.
The Atlanta Aquarium does pat downs and runs wands over everyone entering. They also check bags. A group of "security", which is most likely college kids with a 1 hour class, stands in a line and checks everyone. I walked up to them and told them I wont be patted down, and they cannot wand me due to my pacemaker/defibrillator. I have a card stating this and stating that wands drain the battery life. So what did the Atlanta Aquarium "security" do? Held their hands up and said, "We don't want to get sued sir, go ahead!" As a place of business, if you want these type of measures for security, by all means, have them. But pay real law enforcement to do it. If the Atlanta Aquarium would have chosen to disregard and wand me anyway, I would have sued the *censored* out of them.
All we can do is refuse to go and refuse to give them money. The all mighty dollar talks, just ask the Harrisburg Sportsman Show! Making up rules to bend to the liberals agenda did them so well the show collapsed right before their eyes.
So instead of going to the fair and having "tons of fun" surrounded by a bunch if people I don't know, what else can I do? Hmmm...I can think of a few things.
