"Faster than a speeding bullet, a gun-safety provision is shot into oblivion."

"And needless to say, the National Rifle Association's prints are all over the weapon."

"Last year, Congress passed a sweeping law sought by the NRA that was intended to shield the gun industry from litigation. Gun safety advocates in Congress knew they couldn't prevent the passage of the bill, but they managed to hold out for one concession: a provision that requires gun makers to provide childproof trigger locks on all handguns. ..."

"Yet even that slight concession was too much for the National Rifle Association. Two weeks ago, the House, as is its wont, did the bidding of the NRA, voting 230-191 to repeal the trigger-lock provision." ...

'People have got to realize they're in a lot of trouble' if they try to bring a gun into the fair, said Scharber, who's also a sergeant with the county sheriff's office." ...
 

OH: Clermont County Fair Banning Concealed Carry

"Ohioans For Concealed Carry has maintained that when a county fairgrounds posts 'No Guns' signs at their parking lots and entry gates they are doing so in conflict with Ohio Law. When the county fairgrounds are owned by a county government then the only legitimate 'No Guns' signs are those that are mandated at the entry to each building."

"Posting the open areas of a fair is prohibited even if the fair is run by an Agricultural Society. AG Societies, although typically non-profit corporations, are often funded by county government, or simply running county property. The Preble County Prosecutor requested an opinion from Attorney General Jim Petro over this matter last year and the formal opinion of the Attorney General was that county fairgrounds may not prohibit CCW in areas other than a building, even if they are charging you to enter the fairgrounds." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There is no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. — Ayn Rand in her must-read novel, Atlas Shrugged
