UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) — A gun show will take place in Upper Marlboro despite the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission’s reluctance to host it.
The Washington Post reports attorneys for the organization concluded it had no choice but to allow the show, which is expected to bring up to 2,000 firearm enthusiasts to the Show Place Arena on Saturday.
Safety restrictions have been imposed, including no live ammunition allowed on the premises of the arena, no dry-firing weapons and all firearms must have trigger locks. Additionally, at least five park police officers must be on duty providing security.
