With gun control in the National spotlight, scores of protesters are expected to greet gun enthusiasts when they arrive at an upstate New York venue that's hosting a firearms show this weekend. Capital Region Bureau Chief Dave Lucas reports.
The organizers of a Vermont gun show say they will allow the display and sale of assault weapons despite a request by the mayor of Barre that the weapons not be displayed in the aftermath of last month's school shooting in Newtown, Conn.
Last night, the Saratoga Springs city council passed a non-binding resolution urging exhibitors at an upcoming gun show to refrain from selling weapons similar to those used in the Newtown shootings.
Susan Steer is a local nurse who brought the issue to a hotpoint following the Sandy Hook massacre. Steer called the City Center and was told there was no plan to cancel the gun show. She began an online petition, which racked up hundreds of local signatures and comments in favor of calling off the event.
