Appeals Court Upholds Nashville Gun Show Ban

posted on June 20, 2017

A Tennessee court has upheld a ban on gun shows put in place by the Metro Nashville Fair Board.

The Tennessee Court of Appeals last week ruled against the challenge by gun rights advocates and a gun show organizer.

“Now, more than ever, cities need to be able to implement reasonable gun protections,” said Kenny Byrd, a former Metro board commissioner who helped put the gun show rules into place. “We have saved lives by stopping city-funded gun shows.”

In fact, Byrd and other commissioners might cost lives by making purchasing a gun more difficult for law-abiding Tennesseans wishing to buy a firearm for defense of themselves and their families. But anti-gun advocates seldom think of those possible ramifications to their bans.
