@DudeSmith - Are you serious? How are gun shows in any way disrespectful to those victims? Gun shows are simply an open forum to buy guns, ammunition, etc. They are no different than going to a authorized gun dealer and purchasing weapons. I truly feel sympathy for the victims themselves and could not imagine losing one of my children but a knee-jerk reaction will solve nothing. It is not gun shows, gun control reform or anything of that nature that will fix this situation. There are millions of us who purchase guns for our own personal reasons and would never use them in a negative way. Why should we be imposed restrictions for someone elses issues. That would be like saying since alcohol comes in cans and bottles, they will now be removed from convenience stores and only sold in grocery stores. That may sound a little far fetched but the idea is relative. We need to properly punish criminals with extreme prejudice so the next idiot won't decide to do something unthinkable.

Joe ******* gotta git a gun.....the gun shows are a slap in the face to victims of gun violence. When events such as those in Newtown occur, we must respect that and end gun shows, like it or not. Klan rallies were pretty common until after the civil rights movement.
