Stamford gun show attracts attention in wake of Newtown

Mayor Pavia says the show should be rescheduled in the wake of the Newtown shooting.

STAMFORD - The Eighth Annual East Coast Firearms Show is attracting more attention than the organizers may have intended.

Stamford Mayor Mike Pavia says the attention the show is getting is a result of unfortunate timing. Many people believe that the show should be canceled or postponed in the wake of the Newtown shooting. Pavia also says he wishes the organizers of the event would reschedule. 

The show will be held nearly 40 miles from Sandy Hook Elementary School, where a gunman killed 20 students and 6 adults in December.
