WHITE PLAINS - New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson announced Wednesday that he would ban gun shows at the County Center in White Plains if elected as county executive.

Incumbent Rob Astorino canceled the annual show this year following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. However, his opponent says Astorino was wrong to have considered it in the first place.

"I will reinstitute a ban on gun shows on county property, and I will ask the Legislature to enact a permanent ban," says Bramson.

The Democrat's announcement comes on the heels of his latest television ad, in which he criticizes Astorino's position on public safety.

A spokesman for the Astorino campaign says the Republican's stance on gun laws is that they are federal and state, not county, issues.
