GLENDALE, Calif. (AP) — Reacting to the Connecticut school shooting massacre, a Southern California city has decided to draft a law banning gun shows on city-owned property.

The Glendale City Council voted 4-1 on Tuesday to ask the city attorney to draw up an ordinance halting gun shows at the Glendale Civic Auditorium and elsewhere on city property.

The Glendale Gun Show has been held at the site since 1992. The March gun show will be held as scheduled.

Glendale Gun Show events have earned the city $158,000 in the past three years.

KCBS-TV says Councilman Rafi Manoukian proposed the ban after the fatal shooting of 27 children and adults in Newtown, Conn.
