Saratoga gun show will go on as planned

To the Editor:

It appears the saying that the White House Administration likes most, “Never let a good disaster go to waste … “ or something like that, is in the forefront of this new gun controversy.

As with all good liberals on hearing of the shooting in Newtown, Conn., knees were jerked and jerks spewed nonsense from brains too twisted for rational solutions to real problems. “Ban the Guns” was again the shriek from the far left and still with knowing that banning anything never worked! “Ban guns” in the 1960s, “ban guns” in the 1980s, “ban guns” in the new century and “ban guns” now; irrational and repetitive same thoughts or actions expecting different outcomes can lead a person to the asylum. The noise has become louder and louder so I thought you all should be kept up to date.

Mark Baker, the same Director of the Saratoga Springs City Center, the one who has been my contact since I stopped at his hole-in–the-ground building project nearly three decades ago, is still there and is still on the side of the righteous. Amen! Early in 1984, our little company, NEACA, Inc., New Eastcoast Arms Collectors Associates, entered into an agreement to produce the first trade show at the City Center; an Antique Show in August. And right after that a Gun Show in September.

Bang, bang in succession, Mark had two shows booked before the cement pad was dry. This coming Arms Fair on Jan. 12-13 will be the fruition of many years efforts, great camaraderie with the City Center staff and result of a problem free show and excellent venue. This will also be our 90th show there. Let me say it again; 30 years, 90 shows, no problems! We just may be Mark’s best customer but, as most all of you know, most irritant because I like fairness and I like rules.
