Gun shows used to be banned in Westchester County facilities. But Rob Astorino brought gun shows back to Westchester.

Gun shows are notorious for lax enforcement of gun safety laws. In fact, earlier this year, the operator chosen by the Astorino administration to run gun shows in White Plains was party to a landmark legal settlement with Attorney General Eric Schneiderman after undercover investigators determined that people who could not pass a background check were still able to purchase AR-15 assault rifles and other weapons at gun shows across New York State.
