Friday, April 10th, 2009

Body

The Real Wilmington Gun Show is this weekend on Holly Shelter Road at the New Hanover County Law Enforcement Officer’s Club.

Organizers said the Real Wilmington Gun Show will focus on safety and background checks required before a purchase can be made.

“We know we’re selling guns legally and to people who are legal to possess them,” said show promoter Alan Tiller. “Of course there are other ways guns fall into the hands of criminals that we can’t really control, but there are laws on the books to take care of that also.”

Doors open at 9:00 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday morning. Admission is $ 5; it’s free for children 12-and-under as long as they come with a parent.
