Del Mar Fairgrounds Board Of Directors To Debate Future Of Gun Shows

October 12, 2016

On November 15, the Board of Directors for the 22nd District Agricultural Association, which controls the day-to-day operations of the Del Mar Fairgrounds in San Diego County, will hold an open discussion on the use of the fairgrounds by gun shows. The discussion is a direct result of a request from a handful of anti-gun residents demanding the Board to discontinue the use of the Fairgrounds by gun shows.

This isn’t the first time the gun ban lobby has targeted gun shows held at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. In 2013, the Del Mar City Council adopted a resolution that urged the Board of Directors to not renew any contract with Crossroads of the West or any other gun show sponsor. But thankfully, the Board of Directors recognized that as a public entity, it cannot discriminate against who can or cannot use the Fairgrounds.

Currently, it is unclear whether or not the Board intends to discuss banning gun shows entirely or simply intends to hold an open discussion on the subject. And we won’t know for certain until the agenda is posted on the Board’s website approximately 10 days prior to the meeting. Given the uncertainty, it is critical that all gun owners and Second Amendment supporters make their voices heard today.

To contact the Board, you can leave a voicemail with Donna O’Leary, executive assistant, at (858) 755-1161, ext. 2200, or by submitting a letter to the Board directly at:
