Ohio gun show patrons fear more laws

Posted: Updated:

TALLMADGE, Ohio (AP) - Some of the hundreds of people who turned out at a northeast Ohio arena to buy, sell and trade guns over the weekend said they feared more government control over firearms.

The attraction was the Ohio Gun, Knife and Military Show at the Summit County Fairgrounds in Tallmadge. Many there said the talk about gun control after the tragedy at Newtown, Conn., has become a political obsession and no additional laws are necessary.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports that some of the sellers posted fliers asking gun owners to call their legislators to oppose any new gun regulations.

Countering that effort was a similar call that went out this weekend from religious leaders across the nation encouraging people to call their legislators seeking support for additional gun-control legislation.
