Ever think about how many guns are in cars at a gun show?? I bet many people disarm and throw there handgun in console or glove box. I use to be one of those guys but one day as I was leaving show I started to realize how many people were in parking lot just standing around or talking to someone.. Who would know if the car they were standing next to was theirs? I always thought it was safe to leave my gun in the car at such an event but since then I take it in and go thru the small inconvenience of having security check and safe my gun. Still have to leave mag and extra ammo in truck but that's a small thing.

Blaming gun owners for Houston's violence because they have NRA stickers on their cars or they leave their guns in their cars when they go into bars.
