Insurance May Force End to Idaho Gun Show

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Members of a southwestern Idaho gun club may have to end a decades-long tradition of gun shows because Ada County raised its insurance requirements after two people were injured in an accidental firearm discharge at the club’s show in April.

The Idaho Press-Tribune reports officials with EE-DA-HOW Long Rifles canceled its Fort Boise Gun Show last weekend after Expo Idaho increased its insurance requirements to $5 million. The insurance would have cost the Kuna-based club $18,000 — more than it makes from the show.

Expo Idaho Director Bob Batista said he did not know if the higher insurance cost would affect the other five guns shows the venue hosts each year. Gun show coordinator Kim Tish says the club is looking to find insurance at a reasonable cost.
