Crossroads of the West gun show postponed out of respect for shooting victims

LAS VEGAS - Out of "respect for the victims and families" of the tragic incident of October 1, America's largest producer of gun shows, Crossroads of the West has decided to postpone the gun show that was scheduled for October 21-22 at Cashman Center.

In a statement, Crossroads owner Bob Templeton said, “We are a family-owned business, and we grieve with the families of those who lost loved ones or had family members or friends injured in the horrific incident at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival concert. We have been in conversations with the management of Cashman Center and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitor Authority, and have mutually agreed that out of sensitivity and concern for the victims and their families and respect for the feelings of the citizens of Las Vegas, we will not hold the October Crossroads of the West gun show."

Crossroads of the West promotes over 60 gun shows a year in California, Arizona, Utah, and Nevada. The company was founded by Bob Templeton and his wife Lynn in 1975.
