Question I have been to several Yuma gun shows, most of the vendors are armed, yet they require all visitors guns to be empty and unusable. Under Arizona law how do they get away with that. If they call the cops, the cops are by law forbidden to address the issue of carrying, loaded or unloaded. the event has no authority to prevent a person from being armed for self defense. State law requires a safe lock up with immediate retrieval in posted buildings. Nobody that I know of trades in a loaded gun. Since a permit is also not required in Arizona how dies it make any sense to create a gun free zone at a gun show? people coming to guy are usually carry8ig cash and that is a very large parking lot the same as a county fair.

I have been a vendor at several Yuma shows. The vendors guns are also required to be unloaded, though they have easier access into and out of the show.

Private venues can set the limits as to whether they allow armed people in the buildings or not. Private businesses are allowed to expel armed people as part of trespass law.

The question in this case is whether the semi-publicly owned buildings, when rented to a private entity, are under the control of the private entity for a temporary period.

The theory that the fairgrounds are working under is that the buildings, for the show, are under the control of a private entity.
