See Rule Number One:
Who cares if people handle loaded guns at gun stores and gun shows, sometimes shooting each other, the staff, or the merchandise?
The important thing is that they allow us all to carry loaded guns in there, because that's our Second Amendment right.
Rule #1. All guns are loaded, all the time. No exceptions.
I went the other night to have a holster I bought worked on at a shoe repair place near me. I had the gun so I could show him what I wanted done.
I had already unloaded the gun before handing it to him, but he politely thanked me and asked if it would be okay if he checked it to make sure it was unloaded.
My reply was "absolutely". I would have thought to myself "what an idiot" for taking a gun from a stranger and not checking it first if he had not asked.
Did you give him a GCO card? He seems ahead of the curve.
Handling and carrying are two different things.
The post located at https://georgiapacking.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=52254 is a good example of why disarming people at gun shops and shows is a bad idea. It's no different than any other gun-free/victim-zone business. And I would be more concerned about a lot of people handling and unloading their guns at an entrance than just carrying and not disturbing them.
If you promoted educating people to not remove their holstered firearms, and if you wanted to try a holster to have to go to an unloading room and not touch your firearm until there, I'd be more sympathetic. But disarming citizens at a gun shop/show is no different than at a restaurant/department store/etc. where most here would be saying I won't spend my money there.
