SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Local officials joined supporters on Wednesday in delivering more than 2,000 petitions to keep a popular gun show exactly where it is.
Senator Kathy Marchione and New Eastcoast Arms Collectors Associates President Dave Petronis delivered exactly 2,454 petitions to demonstrate support for Saratoga Gun Show remaining at the City Center in Saratoga Springs.
A resolution was passed in September to move the show to Rensselaer County after the City Center wan’t offered dates for future shows.
Marchione first launched the petition online after that announcement.
In a statement on Wednesday, she said:
“Our effort was to demonstrate wide support for the gun show and we’re hopeful the City Center Authority Board will hear our concerns, reverse course, and keep the Saratoga Gun Show.”
