Officials considering gun show regulations

Updated:
(Tulsa-AP) -- Expo Square officials are considering ways to
regulate additional entertainment at gun shows at the fairgrounds
in Tulsa.

Gun show promoters have recently been including seminars and
speeches. One of the most notable speeches was given last February
when government critics Randy Weaver and Bo Gritz spoke at a gun
show.

The concerns came to light yesterday during a meeting of the
Tulsa County Public Facilities Authority. Officials were discussing
a policy on the number of gun shows held each year at Expo Square.

Warren Metcalf is a gun show promoter who was at yesterday's
meeting. He says he doesn't feature speeches at his gun shows
because speakers bring more negative publicity to the industry. But
he says he believes regulating the speeches would be a First
Amendment problem.
