I was at a gun show recently and was taking some photos of the guns on display. Some crusty lad tapped me on the shoulder and told me it was illegal and if I took more he would call the law. At the very next booth I asked the owner if It would be OK to take a few photos so I could send them to a buddy and he said I could take all I wanted. Has anyone every heard it is illegal to take pictures of guns on display. I think it is B.S.

Prob thought you were an anti gun person taking a picture of the scary guns for the liberal media to write a story for more gun control.

A private establishment or business could certainly have policies regarding filming/and or taking pictures. But you can take pictures of anything you want if you are in a public place, the most they could do legally is come after you for not having a "model release/property release" if you were planning to sell or profit from the images in any way.

So unless the ownership of whatever building the show was in, had a specific policy (which would mean they would also need to have signs posted, like at movie theatres), that guy was full of crap.
