I'll have to say I'm surprised that you're surprised. A gun show is a private venture - the company putting it on can set the rules and among the dealers and customers I'd guess there are a lot who're suspicious of anyone with a camera and of being photographed or video taped at the show. Lots of places prohibit photos and videos -not that they can always enforce it but in that particular case the had you.

Was there signage listing the dos and dont's? The no photography rule should have been spelled out somewhere near the entrance or in the advertising.

I've been asked to cease and desist in quite a few bus and train stations - never had my cam taken but they're pretty sensitive around transportation venues nowadays - again widely ignored but the law is on their side if you are spotted. It's usually stated as "With permission only".

If you read my comments on the YouTube page for the video you will see that I say in the comments the same thing you are saying. I was not surprised. I was expecting it. Gives me something to bitch about and gives me a good headline.
But we did not see any signs about cameras. I am sure they could have come up with some paper work saying that cameras were not allowed. But I saw no signs.
It appears that my camera was the only one they took! I guess I was the only one dumb enough to think he could take a photo.
