Ada County lifts moratorium on gun shows at Expo Idaho | Idaho Statesman

Ada County commissioners on Tuesday adopted new policies to improve public safety at gun shows at Expo Idaho — and lifted a moratorium on gun shows that was imposed over two years ago. The moratorium was adopted in November of 2015, after four people were injured in two accidental gun discharges in 2013 and 2015. Gun shows scheduled for early 2016 were canceled. Before those dangerous mishaps, Expo Idaho hosted five to seven gun shows per year. The county hasn’t received requests to hold gun shows while the county mulled new policies, county spokeswoman Kate McGwire said. Ada County Commission Chairman Dave Case said one problem the county discovered after the two accidental shooting incidents was that exhibitors did not have the insurance coverage the county thought they had, according to a recording of Tuesday’s commissioners meeting.
