Gun Shows and GFZ's

We went to the gun show. Everyone who has been top gun show knows that they don't allow loaded guns or loaded magazines. So this guy comes in and questions the guy at the front desk, who was also a cop, saying he had a HCP. The cop said that his HCP was invalid in POSTED areas, which is true. The problem is that the gun show was not posted properly and thus not a valid GFZ. They can ask you to leave, but carrying a loaded gun inside is not breaking the law as the cop suggested.
 

I never got that, either.

I have never understood the whole GFZ at a gun show rule, especially as concerns a CCW.

:no:

At a gun show in Fort worth a few weeks back one of the dealers had a gun on his table that he was welling for a friend. some guy walks up, picks it up and pulls the trigger. BANG. A 45 though the table into the floor. The show was packed with people. If he had pointed anywhere else someone would be dead or wounded. Not good.

Considering the types of people, mostly uneducated in the gun department, I agree with the rules 100%. I just found it interesting that the "law" as the cop was reciting it was not correct. The gun show was not legally a GFZ. Threatening to take a guy to jail who has an HCP for carrying a loaded gun inside is a violation of his rights. The correct response would have been....

"Our rules state that no loaded guns, magazines or ammo are allowed. The rules benefit the safety of everyone and if you do not wish to comply, we respectfully request that you leave."

I understand the no loaded guns and mags rule, but you're not even supposed to have ammo in your pocket...when not 10 feet from the check-in table there is an ammo dealer selling anything you could ever want.
