Would this allow someone who owns an establishment that is a "public gathering" to allow carry? My thinking is that an appointed person provides security for a gathering and they permit a firearm "secured to your person." This could be a bouncer at a bar, a church usher, the hostess of a restaurant. Any place that is pro-carry. (I believe this is also why bringing your firearm to a gun-show isn't illegal. A gun-show is definately a public gathering, but they have security at the door that checks you in.) Just a thought. I know most places aren't so pro-carry as to explictly allow firearms, but some might be.
