Governor signs law which will ban gun sales at the Ventura County Fairgrounds
But, ban is not instant — law allows shows under contract with the fairgrounds by the end of the year to still take place.
The governor has signed into law legislation which will ban gun sales at the Ventura County Fairgrounds.
Gun shows have been a controversial issue for the fairgrounds during the last few years, especially in the wake mass shootings like the 2018 Borderline Bar and Grill Attack in Thousand Oaks which left 12 people dead.
Democratic Assemblyman Steve Bennett of Ventura, and Democratic State Senator Monique Limon of Santa Barbara sponsored the legislation.
But, the gun shows at the fairgrounds won’t stop immediately. It allows any shows the fairgrounds has under contract by the end of the year to still occur. Law enforcement agencies will still be able to use the fairgrounds for gun buyback programs.
