Man carries five guns to the state fair (Indiana)

Resource: http://www.wthr.com/story/23064362/2013/08/06/man-with-five-guns-asked-to-leave-state-fair
They don’t know why but he had five guns on him and was asked to leave the fair. They don’t know why but he had all the right licenses so no arrest was made.
Quoted: State Fair weapons policy The Indiana State Fair has the following policy about weapons posted to its website:
"No person in possession of a deadly weapon shall be permitted onto or be permitted to remain on the Fairgrounds; any person properly licensed to carry a firearm must secure the firearm in a locked compartment of his/her vehicle and it shall not be visible to a passerby."
That policy, by the way, includes all "deadly weapons," not just guns. So presumably, someone with a large knife could also be asked to secure it or leave the property.
Bottom line: keep your weapons in your car or leave them at home.

Well, unless state law prohibits conceal carry on public events, I pack my gun no matter what the signs say! This incident is a perfect example as to why I carry. Who knows what shitbird had in mind when carrying 5 guns into the fair. Just went to a county fair yesterday where smoking and firearms are not permitted. It was a local ordnance, not state law , so my poor wife had to put her cigarette out when request by the gate staff and reminded her not to smoke inside the grounds.They never asked me if I had a gun and even if they did, I would have smiled and told them, of course not sir (these gate keepers love to be called sir) because the sign said no firearms. Spoke with two city officers and one retired officer and none asked me if I had a gun. And they all knew I always have one! As I always say, "Ignorance is bliss" :~) Prepare to defend yourself because police officers are to heavy to pack around on your back!

Oh bullshit! Disobeying signs on private property is not breaking the law. As I stated, I obey state law, signs on private property is not the law, all they can do is ask you to leave the premises. There is a big difference between the legislative laws and private property owners request. BSG you gotta be drunk, sober up and read it again.

if it is posted as the state requires under state law and you walk past the sign and choose to ignore it then you are in voilation of the law- public property or private- if they post a sign and you violate it  you can be  arrested and charged with a mininum of trespassing
