WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – Westchester County will not host the Sportsmen Firearm and Knife Show in 2013 out of respect for the lives lost in the Newtown, Conn., school shooting, County Executive Robert Astorino announced Monday.
The show has been run in a professional manner in past years but bringing it back after such a tragedy would not be “appropriate,” Astorino said in a statement.
“In the days and weeks ahead, the county will review its own policies and procedures to see if anything can be done to prevent these senseless acts of violence in the future,” he added.
