The Macon County Community Building once again hosted the Franklin Gun Show. Travelers who used Highway 441 to enter into Franklin likely ran into the lines of cars ready to find a parking place in the area. Despite the traffic, Ron Haven of Gem Capitol Shows doesn't think the turnout was what it had been in the past.
“I don't think there were as many people at this show as there usually is,” said Haven. “It was still a good show, but I don't think it was as good as the last one we had. It's actually something that has been affecting a lot of the shows lately. I was talking to a promoter out of Asheville recently and he was saying that his attendance was down also.”
