Despite being the biggest gun show in the United States, Guns aren’t allowed aren’t allowed at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas. That’s because Sands and Sheldon Adelso banned guns in their facilities after the shooting in October in Las Vegas.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation’s four-day SHOT Show officially kicks off Jan. 23 and is expected to attract around 65,000 attendees and hundreds of exhibitors. However, no one is allowed to bring guns!
Sands has confirmed that the Palazzo and Venetian are now “Gun Free Zones” and all weapons are banned for all guests in private or public. Signs have been placed at all floors and entrances and clearly say that firearms are not allowed except for Law Enforcement.
SHOT Show has been held for 40 years, half that time in Las Vegas, and this year’s gathering was scheduled well before the bloodshed last fall. It will have some 13 miles of aisles featuring products from more than 1,700 companies. More than 65,000 visitors are expected at the gathering, where deals worth millions are struck.
