Ban on gun shows sought in county's public arenas

UPPER MARLBORO - Prince George's County legislators will seek the General Assembly's approval of a ban on gun shows in public arenas in the county. Sponsors of the bill predict it is headed for a fight in the legislature.

"I don't know why we need to be subsidizing the sale of guns," Curry said yesterday as he unveiled his legislative priorities for the 2001 General Assembly.
