Default CCW at Cal Expo during Fireworks

Hey all, figured I'd post here in the Sacramento area instead of CCW since this is more of a local question.

I heard that they are going to be setting up metal detectors for admission to the Cal Expo fireworks show. Does anyone know if this is true or not?

I really hate going anywhere I can't carry and I don't want to have to run back to the car to stow the handgun as I would rather not bring it than run the risk of someone breaking in to the car and stealing it.

If they are doing scans at the gates, do we know if they will allow CCW permit holders entry with the handgun?

Thank you all. And have a great Fourth of July!

Thanks. Normally I would never go in to these shows, but my parents really wanted to take my son to the show and asked if the wife and I would tag along. I used to sit out at the Century theater parking lot to watch.

Does anyone know if they allow CCW holders entry past the security detector wands?

They have a very large sign right next to the guards with a NO FIREARMS posted.

Default CalExpo doesnt like guns.

Just thought I'd mention, loaded firearms on CalExpo grounds will never be tolerated unless your police. The only reason they still host the gunshow is because they make a good dollar on it. Ive worked there for a few years and they always stress, "No firearms on your person or in your car if its on CalEx grounds, permit or not, same goes for ammo. You want to keep a legal gun in your car, then park it off of the property."

Actually they were alert for IEDs and such during the fireworks and at fairtime.
