One of the biggest factors involved is insurance liability. Alexander emphasizes: “As a promoter, you need to find special event coverage. Gun shows are somewhat unique and there is one that is sponsored through the National Rifle Association (NRA) where you can basically fill out a sheet that has a checklist. There are questions, like will there be alcohol allowed onsite, will you be checking firearms outside, will you offer private sales, etc.” The main difference between gun shows and other meetings and events lies in the extra safety measurements needed for the attendees, exhibitors and general public. It is highly recommended that all sales are properly documented to protect the sellers and buyers. Gun show promoters and planners develop relationships with the local law enforcement and generally invite their input and presence. Security and law enforcement (via the show promoter’s encouragement) is crucial in making sure that local and federal laws are being followed to ensure a safe and successful show.
