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,

    Common sense gun regulation should be our goal. Thanks for keeping the State Fair gun free.

    Thank you very much Commissioner Troxler for banning guns from our State Fair. It is hard to find safe places, free from guns, for good family fun. I have attended fairs in at least four States over my 69 years and I have never found any activities there that required loaded firearms in attendance there. Thank you for standing up for families that want to enjoy their time in a “gun free” environment.


    Thank you so much!
