Regarding the Oct. 1 news article “ New law may allow guns at fair”: If the legislature allows guns at the State Fair, I will never again attend. Consider the accidental shootings that have recently been in the news, and consider what terrible tragedy could potentially happen if one of these “responsible” gun owners had his gun go off on a crowded midway.
It wasn’t that long ago that a gun went off at a gun show at the fairgrounds, so the Grass Roots North Carolina folks can’t say that it won’t happen. And exactly what are people so afraid of that they need to carry a gun to the fair? Someone butting in line and getting the last fried Twinkie?
