Thank You, Commissioner Troxler

For decades, no one has been allowed to bring a gun to the NC State Fair.  But a group is planning to sue to change that.  The Commissioner of Agriculture, Steve Troxler, said that he would keep guns off of state fairgrounds this year.

Please sign the thank you note to Commissioner Troxler for committing to keep the state fair gun-free.

Dear Commissioner Troxler:

Thank you for keeping the ban on concealed weapons at the NC State Fair.  Everyone should feel safe at our state fairgrounds.  We hope that people will listen to your message to leave their guns in the car or at home so that everyone can have a safe time at the fair. 

Thanks again,

    If the courts strike down your ban, my family will boycott the state fair. Let’s hope reason prevails.

    Thank you for allowing common sense to prevail. Second amendment paranoia is a creation of corporate interests and political opportunists that put their own agenda before the public good.

    Guns at the State Fair is like razors in apples. The very idea is appalling. Stand your ground, Commissioner Troxler. You have a lot of outraged, sane, people behind you.
