    What they need to do is start holding these irresponsible winger and bagger gun owner responsible and charge them with negligent handling of firearms. Bad enough any whacko can buy one, now conservatives are giving them away free.

    Where's the surveillance video? If there isn't any, then it was definitely an inside job.

    Sounds like they hired a security monitor instead of a guard.

    I would bet this was likely the result of an inside job sponsored by liberals to discredit and eventually try to ban gun shows. This was a clear failure of the vendors and owners of the venue to provide adequate security, planned failure?

    I agree...it probably was an inside job. I am sure a venue with several hundred thousand dollars worth of handguns, assualt rifles and shotguns laying out in the open barely secured would have enough sense to provide quality overnight security!!.......on second thought , they probably have a 10 dollar an hour parking lot attendant that was asleep in the guard shack 1/4 mile away! lol!

    Have you ever been to a gun show? The vendors don't provide the security, the venue does. IMO, this was most likely an inside job.
