SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - The organizers of a gun show set for Saratoga Springs later this month have agreed not to display or sell military-style, semiautomatic weapons.
Cathy Petronis (peh-TRAH'-nihs) of New Eastcoast Arms Collectors Associates tells the Daily Gazette of Schenectad that the group will go along with the request from city officials urging exhibitors not to display semiautomatic weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines" similar to the ones used in last month's Connecticut school shooting.
On Wednesday, the Saratoga Springs City Council voted unanimously to urge the organization not to display items of the type used in the Newtown tragedy.
The show is scheduled for Jan. 12-13.
Last week, Petronis' husband David had advised exhibitors not to bring the AR-15-type weapons with them or, if they did, to have them under their tables or in boxes.
