It’s not likely that you see gun shows at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton anytime soon. The 9th Circuit U.S. District Court ruled that the fairgrounds could be considered a sensitive place under a 1999 Alameda County ordinance which makes carrying a gun a misdemeanor crime if caught on county grounds. The attorney representing gun show promoters have yet to file an appeal.
The Alameda County Superior Court is where most Pleasanton cases start. However, there are many jurisdictional divisions and it is important you file correctly.
