Gun show attendees say alcohol sales a bad idea

A proposal to allow alcohol sales at guns shows in Texas got a mostly unfavorable reaction at a gun show in Houston, with many in attendance calling it a bad idea.

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission is considering the proposal, provided that at such events live ammunition isn't allowed and buyers can't take possession of their weapons.

Bill Clouse, one of several hundred people who attended the High Caliber Gun & Knife Show on Saturday, described himself as a "huge gun supporter" but said he doesn't believe guns and alcohol should mix.

The commission will hold a 30-day public comment period before any change is made.

Under current rules, drink sales and consumption are suspended during the time it takes to set up, conduct and dismantle a gun show.
