Police and the Exchange Club of Savannah are teaming up to bolster security at the Coastal Empire Fair, which opens Thursday.Last year, eight people were shot late Nov. 3 at the Coastal Empire Fairgrounds. Fair attendees will be greeted by metal detectors at entrance gates, additional law enforcement officers both inside and outside the fair, and elevated platforms to allow better oversight of the facilities, said Julian Miller, Savannah-Chatham police spokesman.
Quote:
In addition to the measures above, police at the gates will be collecting contraband from those entering the fair, Miller said. Backpacks and pocketbooks will be prohibited.

Well, I have never been to that fair and now I doubt that I ever will. Does anyone know if the fairgrounds are publically owned?

Appears by the Chatham County Tax Assessors site that it is owned and operated by Savannah Exchange Club. http://www.savannahexchange.org It doesn't appear from their website that they are a government entity of your normal variety.

So they are within their rights to ban firearms from the facility. I don't think they can arrest anyone for it, just eject them.
