World’s largest gun show will go on as planned in Las Vegas | New York Post

The world’s largest annual gun show will go on as planned in Las Vegas.

National Shooting Sports Foundation which hosts the “SHOT Show” said they would not be discussing any questions relating to Sunday’s massacre, including a venue change for the Jan. 23-26 show, which is being held about four miles away from where Stephen Paddock killed 59 people and injured hundreds more using an array of high-powered assault rifles.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones of all those killed and injured in the criminal attack in Las Vegas,” the foundation said in a statement Tuesday. “Out of respect for the families of the victims and the law enforcement process, we are not going to comment or participate in media requests made relating to this attack.”

Around 65,000 industry professionals and media attended last year’s Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show at the Sands Expo Center, Fox reported.

“SHOT Show,” is the fifth-largest trade show in Las Vegas with last year’s event showcasing over 6.5 million pounds of guns, gear and exhibits relating to hunting, shooting and fishing.
