Control Over Gun Shows on Public Property

County officials soon vote on if gun/weapon shows should be allowed at their public centers.   

Gun's and gun shows are a big thing here in Texas.  With everything that has been going on lately with shootings and guns being in the hands of the wrong people, it's starting to really cause a problem with those who deal with gun's for a living and those who use them for sporting and hobbies.

Because of all of bad things that some of these people have been doing with these guns, some officials are trying to figure out if it is a good idea to have these massive gun shows at these public places where anyone is allowed to attend. Gun shows are a big business here in Texas, especially in Fort Worth.  At the Will Rogers Center, there is a gun show just about every month that hundreds of people attend.

Along with trying to take a stand with gun shows on public property, there are other things trying to be changed with gun control too such as background checks.  Texas is one of only about a dozen states that don't require background checks with the purchasing of guns at gun shows. 

The Star Telegram had a great quote from Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson that said, "But these politicians are doing knee-jerk reactions that won't make any difference. This is low-hanging, politically correct fruit for politicians who want to say they did something."
