jrm - what case law addresses whether admission is charged? I have looked carefully for this, but I have been unable to find it. That would be very helpful caselaw, if it exists.jrm said:Admission is charged, so it is not open to the general public (under some public gathering cases).
jrm said:A gun show may or may not qualify as a public gathering. Admission is charged, so it is not open to the general public (under some public gathering cases).
If you noticed all those events you mentioned either; a) take place in a public building, b) take place in an establishment that is licensed to serve alcoholic beverages, or c) both. Which would make them off limits by their own definitions in 16-11-127.seajay said:Wouldn't the same hold true of a concert then? Or a football game? You are paying to watch the band or the game. Not to gather as a group.
