    Now THAT would keep me away. Now I just have to get that picture out of my head.

    Doesn't have to be a private plane. You can carry a gun on an airliner as long as it's checked.

    And you comply with the other (casing, declaratio) requirements and you are NOT in a place that bars such (like NYC).

    Mark, do you think the parents of the unarmed 17 year old boy that was shot and killed in Sanford, Florida, got a good laugh out of it?

    What's the NRA positon on that, maybe the kid should have been carrying his own gun?

    Bill, I'm not going to have this debate with you. You are obviously incapable of grasping my point, which was simply that it was my hope that EAA had not taken an anti-gun position. You don't like guns, or gun people, or toy guns, or finger guns, or whatever the case may be... fine. That doesn't mean that I have to answer for every nut job that commits a crime involving a gun.

    Is it my fault that the kid in FL was shot and killed? Did my gun do it? What is your point? Are you going to accuse me of not knowing what it's like again? Let me just save you the effort and explain to you that my brother-in-law was killed by a gun... shot in the head... it was an accident. The same way that cars have accidents, airplanes have accidents, boats have accidents, and a variety of other methods that we as human beings injure or kill ourselves or each other every day... what can I say, we live in an imperfect world.

    I'm not really looking to get banned from the list, so I'll not completely flame you with the facts. My point has been stated, and as a dues paying member of this organization I feel that I have a legitimate concern. I don't have to justify to you or anyone else my porpose or desire to own or carry guns. Have a good day!

    Guys, this thread was about someone raising specific questions about an apparent policy decision by EAA and I still owe you some follow up on that, I haven't forgotten. The debate, while spirited, was reasonable when it was focused on "should they or shouldn't they", but now it's turned into a bunch of noise about gun ownership, some tragic events, and yet more arguing back and forth.

    Enough is enough - this thread is closed.

    Hi everyone - Here's what I learned after talking to some key people here:

    EAA and AirVenture have always had a policy of no firearms allowed on the grounds. There is no change to that long-standing policy. Under the new Wisconsin concealed-carry law, those facilities and events with such a policy must now post it.
