A while ago I was told that jewelry exhibitors carry guns. So tonight I googled "do jewelry exhibitors carry guns?". The second page produced an application with the following statement.
Ours is a family-oriented event, and exhibits must be in keeping with this atmosphere. Animals and alcohol are prohibited. For the health and safety of artists, crafters, and fair attendees, no pets, no carry-ins, and no firearms
are allowed at Cheery Cherry Fall Fair.
I have not seen such wording on other applications. Have I been naive?
