GUNS: Nothing to see here, folks

Print Article

Re: “Guns” at the Fair — Here we go again with The Press and another banner headline trying to create “issues” where there are none. Don’t you folks ever get tired of yourselves? Ms. Jordan gave the succinct and pertinent answer, there was NO need to contact Ada, Nez Perce County, etc., for their take on things. The Fairground’s firearms policy is well-known, except maybe to recent arrivals who, possibly, you hoped to infect with some “hoplophobic hysteria” and cause them undue concern about going. Then, “if” attendance did happen to go down, you could write another article and blame it on the guns. Right?

I personally think it would be AWESOME if the Fair offered an “OC” discount like Duelling Irons Restaurant in Post Falls does for its customers — just to poke y’all in the eye.
