Public Service Announcement.
I received this email this evening:
Subject: Tucson Gun Show Moved
New location: Tucson Expo Center, 3750 E Irvington Rd
Those of you who know me, know I don’t ask things of people very often. In truth, I’d like you to do something both for yourself, and for freedom next Saturday and Sunday. I’d like you to take as many of your family members as you can to the McMann Roadrunner Tucson Gun Show next weekend, 2/18 & 19, which will be at the Tucson Expo Center, 3750 E Irvington Rd, not at the TCC as usual.
At the last TCC show, the city accepted a deposit for the hall for 2/18 & 19, and then someone forgot to write the contract. It was then rented out to another show, leaving Lori McMann to find another venue. TCC officials have apologized for the mistake and have offered to put people at the curb telling them the show has moved. That venue, again, is The Tucson Expo Center, 3750 E Irvington Rd, Just East of Palo Verde on the South side of Irvington. It’s right between Denny’s and Carl’s Jr. for those who navigate by landmark.
Here’s the rub: many will be disappointed to find that the show is not at TCC, and go home. That is not good for Roadrunner Shows, or any of its vendors. They need a good turn out, and I’m asking you to help with that turn out by forwarding this to everyone you know in Tucson who might be interested in going to this gun show. Why?
Pat McMann fought very hard against some underhanded and anti-freedom policies of the City of Tucson that tried to keep him out of the TCC. He went so far as to go to court and fight a tough and courageous battle against the City, which he did not win, but set the tone for changes in the pre-emption law, ARS 13-3108. In the end, the show stayed at TCC, mostly on his resolve. I am sure that that battle hastened the stroke that killed him. Now his daughter Lori and widow Joan carry on his business, running clean, ethical, and well done shows all over the state.
Can we, as gun owners, pay back a little of the debt to the McMann Family for standing up for our rights to assembly? I hope so. Please attend the show Saturday, 2/18, 9 – 5, and Sunday 9 – 4, and forward this to everyone you know who might attend. I’ll even forgive theregular listeners to the Swap Shop, Sunday 10 AM – noon and LibertyWatch Sunday noon – 2 PM on AM 690 KVOI, for missing the shows that weekto go to the gun show. So please, redistribute this widely, and thanks.
I’m not a fan of gun shows, but I might just go to this one.
