SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - Four gun shows, all about an hour's drive from Newtown, Conn., all canceled.
Organizers say they weren't appropriate just weeks after a gunman killed 20 first-graders and six adults at an elementary school in Newtown.
But gun advocates aren't backing down from their insistence on the right to keep and bear arms.
One gun show will go on as scheduled next weekend in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., a bit farther away from Newtown, about 120 miles.
But city officials have asked organizers not to display military-style weapons and high-capacity magazines.
Organizer David Petronis says it's not fair that the shows and their organizers are seen as the brunt of the problem.
But he says he understands the reaction, and the group agreed to the city's request.
