The word is that 70,000 are expected to attend the convention in Charlotte this week -- so many that TV stations are announcing likely traffic delays.
update: I dunno about where right to arms is banned, but I did see stickers on the convention center saying that carrying of arms is not allowed. This struck me as rather strange, as there were thousands of arms in it, which presumably had not appeared from another dimension. I have no idea where the next meeting will be held, or what it says about freedom of expression, but I'd suggest going to Arizona again, where there are no problems with either. [NB: this is sorta ironic, since given the enormous size of a convention, you have to book it many years in advance].
