STAMFORD - A controversial gun show will continue as plannned this weekend, despite protests that it should have been canceled in the wake of the school shooting in Newtown.

The gun show, featuring antique and modern firearms, is being held at the Stamford Plaza Hotel on Summer Street. Two dozen protesters gathered outside yesterday, calling the show offensive since Newtown is located just miles from Stamford.

The show was supposed to be held in Waterbury next weekend, but it was canceled there.
