PA Fair Will Allow Concealed Carry After Threats of Boycott When They Tried to Ban Legal Guns
The Bloomsburg Fair has decided to reverse their policy of banning guns at the event following enormous feedback and threats of boycott.
Facebook pages calling attention to the ban and calling for a boycott had attracted thousands of fans in a matter of days.
According to NewsItem.com,
President Paul E. Reichart said the board will not be checking for or banning lawfully concealed weapons.
“While we cannot prevent those who want to commit unlawful acts, we recognize those who are law abiding citizens and will continue to handle it on a case-by-case basis,” he said.
“As far as we’re concerned, it’s a dead issue. We want people to come to the Bloomsburg Fair,” he said.
Fair officials say they will not be allowing openly carried firearms, but concealed carry by licensed individuals will be allowed.
Security personnel will also not be patting down entrants to look for concealed weapons.
