Pechanga Resort & Casino is very sorry to have to cancel the Elite Firearms Expo this weekend.

Under our agreement with the State of California, “Possession of firearms shall be prohibited at all times in the Gaming Facility” Sec. 10.6.

We apologize for the mistake in originally booking this event. Sales staff honestly did not know that state regulations don’t permit gun shows at the casino.

As much as we were looking forward to this event, it would be illegal for Pechanga to host any type of gun show at our facility due to this prohibition.

If you wish to learn more about our Tribal-State Compact with the State of California, it can be found here: http://www.cgcc.ca.gov/documents/enabling/tsc.pdf

Again, we apologize for the inconvenience to everyone.

Robert, glad you came in to clear it up.
Disappointing that somebody at Pechanga failed to real the fine print of your agreement before setting the wheels in motion, but...

Full Clip,

Unfortunately, in this particular case, our sales staff book conventions, meeting rooms etc. and are not well-versed in gaming regulations. Someone from the gaming side saw there was a gun show booked and said, "hold on a minute..."

Again, our apologies.

It has been stated before that FNRA events have been held at Pechanga, with gun giveaways. This is some CYA BS, and you guys shouldn't be thanking him. For them to not check their own regulations and history, before issuing the agreement to hold the show, is reprehensible. Do NOT let them come in here with some slick apology and make everything better!


Robert it has been in planning for months, you can contact me directly if you want a better option for an excuse here.

that is interesting about the FNRA events.

I did notice that the upcoming Temecula FNRA event is listed as being in a new location, perhaps due to this.

This smells funny. I have been looking forward to this show and was planning to drive up with some friends. To find out about this at the last minute sounds fishy. Pechanga let forums like this, and others, help spread the word and advertise for this event then they cancel it without much notice or widespread word. It sounds to me like they cancelled the show, but didn't really care to let anyone know because it's another way to get people to show up at the casino.

...then again I could be wrong...but am I?

I agree...very fishy.

Something's terribly wrong with this, especially when the show was being held in Penchanga's Conference Center Rooms. With a completely seperate entrance. Furthermore, bad form to blame a department within the organization that they don't know the casino's operating rules and regulation they're held under.

They're full of S%^#!!!!

Boycott all the way! And I've got a lot of friends and family that will follow in my footsteps.
