La Crosse gun show draws in large crowds


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Government may be debating restrictions on guns, but that didn't stop hundreds from making their way to the Bob and Rocco Gun Show.

This weekend, 135 vendors showcased firearms, ammunition and sporting goods at the La Crosse Center.

Bob Pucci, director of the Bob and Rocco Gun Shows, said the strong turnout is because of the recent political heat surrounding guns.

"We're up from years past but that's because of all the craziness going on with the politics right now with the talk of banning guns again, and banning magazines, and banning ammo," Pucci said.
