Gun shows which have been held at the Del Mar Fairgrounds for decades will be halted at the end of the year.
The nine-member 22nd District Agricultural Association board of directors, which oversees events at the fairgrounds, voted 8-1 to not schedule any shows after December wit no new shows until the board develops a new set of policies. The board told its staff to develop the new policies by December of 2019. The new policies would deal with several issues according the board, including:.
- an enhanced security and safety plan for the fairgrounds,
- determining the age appropriateness of gun shows,
- rules and policies that would let the board audit and monitor gun shows,
- consideration of a ban on the possession of guns and ammunition at the fairgrounds.
