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,

    Thank you for exhibiting some much needed common sense on this issue, it is sorely lacking in many of your colleagues in government and elsewhere.

    thank you – and people need to understand that with every right comes great responsibility. Every right that we Americans have been granted come with guidelines and regulations – take voting for example! That is our most fundamental right in our country and there are all kinds of regulations one must abide by in order to vote. I want to visit the state fair without having to worry that some person could accidentally lose their gun, someone could misread a situation and decide to “make things safe” for everyone else. I trust that the police and security personnel will do that.
