After Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner called for the annual gun show to be canceled following the Newtown, Conn. school shooting, Westchester County announced it would not be renewing the show.
In a statement Monday, county officials said, “First and foremost, Westchester County mourns with the nation for the families who lost loved ones in the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The county stands ready to assist the residents of Newtown, Connecticut in any way it can.”
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.
The Westchester County Gun and Knife Show was set to take place at the Westchester County Center in White Plains Feb. 2-3.
