STAMFORD - A controversial gun show came to Stamford today.

Sources say that Stamford Mayor Mike Pavia thought the show was a terrible idea, coming just four weeks after the Newtown massacre, and located only 40 miles away from Sandy Hook Elementary School.

However, News 12 Connecticut reported that the show went on with what appeared to be a strong turnout.

The show did attract a small group of protesters.  Two dozen people gathered outside the Stamford Plaza Hotel to show their disdain for the event.
