    Ouch! It might find gun smugglers. It also just casts unnecessary suspicion on anybody at the gun show who also crosses the border.

    Rent a vehicle to drive to the gun show.

    OR....

    Better yet...

    Borrow one from your Democrat neighbor.

    The continual collection of massive amounts of data on citizens engaged in legal activities bodes well for future employment by the government.

    Eventually everybody will be employed by the government collecting massive amounts of data on themselves. :popcorn:

    I guess I'll be backing in to a parking space at the next gun show I attend.

    I know that's a joke, but it's kind of sad joke, isn't it?

    I do hope that is another joke. Don't rip away ALL of my trust in LE agencies.

    parking backwards is a known common practice for LEOs, current/former military, and thieves. if a cop saw a car like that in a big gun show parking lot, he would probably assume it was a fellow cop or former military guy.

    You left out UPS drivers. And Southern Company employees. And BellSouth employees.

    Who do you think will be tasked to come by your house and take away your now illegal guns?

    Engaging in a legal activity (parking backwards) that may be deemed illegal or at least suspicious by LE is indeed a sad joke. It's the constant expansion of this "small stuff" that continues the expansion of the disrespect toward LE by the citizenry.
