Completely unacceptable,
and totally illegal.

People think I'm paranoid because I own guns.
If I own guns, what do I have to be paranoid about?

Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented immigrant"
is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist ".

Austin is a liberal blue pimple on the derriere of the red state of Texas. Don't know exactly how that happened, unless the university ( "The University" to the effete rich kids who use Daddy's money to attend ) there has over the years turned into an ersatz Ivy League bastion of liberalism.

Actually, I believe the situation was self-imposed by the organizers of the show in response to local neighborhood do-gooders; reports are that the BATFags had nothing to so with the requirement.

Excerpt from the Texas State Rifle Association -

Greetings!

TSRA continues to receive reports that the Austin Police Department and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives attempted to stop all private firearm transactions at an Austin gun show last weekend.


This is due to a decision reached in a Thursday meeting attended by law enforcement agencies, property owners and managers, and the gun show promoter in question and resulted in a self-imposed regulation and not due to a change in city, state, or federal regulations.


Any such city ordinance could violate the state's firearms preemption law.


The Texas State Rifle Association, in conjunction with the NRA, will continue to research and investigate this matter--including examining whether this venue was unfairly targeted as a nuisance by local police or federal enforcement agencies.


Please check your TSRA membership status and check your voter registration. Keep both up to date!

I hope this turns out to be the case, for the people of Texas. However, I think this will be the last time the show organizers will organize and hold a successful show. A lot of people are going to skip their next one.

Sorry to say, this crap started in states like mine- but it is spreading. If a state like Texas falls, we're all screwed.

This was actually a fairly small show organized by a traveling entrepreneur. The big shows in Texas, held every 4 or 6 months, are the locally organized SAXET (imaginative... Texas spelled backwards !) Shows, and those guys are like John Wayne toilet paper when the ATF or any other law enforcement agency drop by. They obey the rules, right to the razor's edge, because they know them, often better than the LEOs involved.

Well said Espada, and totally true.
Those are about the only ones that I attend.

Espada hit the nail on the head in regards to Austin. When I was stationed at FT Hood Austin is the place we went to hit the bars etc... There are so many liberals in this little town it does not even feel like you are in Texas. I think the university has alot of influence on the city. :?
