Re: 147th Annual NRA Meeting in Dallas

The danger to posting at sites such as this, my local paper had quotes from Grundy1133 concerning the NRA convention and disarming LTC holders. Not that Grundy comments were bad but they can be used to reflect against the NRA if the author of the newspaper column wants to slant it that way, and they usually do.

The lesson to be learned is that we are not alone on this site, anyone can see our comments and use it against us.

FYI folks.

I honestly don't know for certain about the insurance thing. More speculation, but from what I've been reading around the interwebs, most likely fact than fiction. I haven't found any concrete evidence pointing one way or the other, though. Upon rereading my post, I realize that I didn't actually say what I intended to say. My apologies. Let me rephrase the point I was trying to make: insurance companies may want event organizers and venues to do their best in making sure no negligent discharges occur at a gun show that the insurance payor is covering. That best effort may certainly involve a no-loaded-firearms policy at the event. Lifting that requirement may end up costing the organizers and/or the venue more money than they can spend, which is why many gun shows have the no-loaded-firearms policy. You can thank the idiots who NDed in gun shows nationwide for that.

In the case of the NRAAM, I'd be surprised if there there is a no-carry policy. Since this is more of a convention than it is a gun show, and with the deep pockets the NRA has, I would expect that they continue with the tradition of fully honoring 2A rights this year.
I believe it was several years ago that Charles Cotton or someone else on this forum specifically wanted proof that an insurance company was demanding 30.06/07 signs or at least no LTC carrying at a gun show. Nobody ever presented a copy of an insurance policy with such wording but there has always been this rumor that insurance companies require it. About a year ago at the gun show in Wichita Falls there was a ND and some food service workers were hit. Apparently a vendor brought a loaded shotgun into the show and that gun went off. No ND by a LTC holder. That gun show is not posted 30.06/07 but they sure check their vendors now.
I personally believe that if there was such an insurance policy a copy of it would have been posted somewhere by now. I think that this is an excuse that business uses to blame 30.06/07 signs on "forces beyond their control". I may be wrong but where is that insurance policy?
Not critical of your comments as I believe the "insurance requires it"excuse has been used for a long time.

In the past, the NRA Convention has followed local laws. When the convention was in Houston in years past, people carried lawfully. Don't imagine it will change, now.
I hope so, but who knows. It's like those 30.06/30.07 signs at gun shows. It's not necessarily the property owners or the event organizers that want to put those signs up, but the insurance companies that refuse to cover the liability if someone gets hurt from a ND and force the organizers to put up those signs.

Regardless, I can't wait to go. It'll be a blast. I'm glad I'm local and can just drive there.
Do you know for a certainty that insurance companies are doing that? Have you seen an insurance policy that says that only people with LTC can not carry at a gun show? Will the insurance company cover if someone illegally (not a LTC holder) carries and there is a ND?
