Del Mar woman fighting fairground gun shows

Posted: Updated:

DEL MAR, Calif. (AP) — A resident of Del Mar is taking aim at gun shows following the Connecticut school massacre.

The North County Times says former teacher Rosanne Holliday has begun a grass-roots campaign to stop shows at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Holliday says it's wrong to celebrate gun culture in a public facility.

She says about 50 people in the town of 4,100 have expressed support. Supporter Bud Emerson says the group has put together a draft petition against the shows.

Fair board President Adam Day says five shows a year bring the fairgrounds a net profit of $324,000. He says the shows, which have been held for two decades, meet all laws and undercover law enforcement officers are on hand.
