Attorney General warns Travis County about possible ban on gun shows on public property

The Texas Attorney General is warning Travis County officials about passing a ban on gun shows at county owned facilities. Abbott says gun bans, in general, don't curb gun violence. 

In a tweet, Abbot warned "If Austin or Travis County try to ban gun shows they better be ready for a double-barreled lawsuit", but did not specify whether he would bring the lawsuit, or if he expected one from someone else. Commissioners are scheduled to take action on the proposal next week. 

Yesterday dozens of people lined up to tell Commissioners their opinion on the proposal. Commissioners are expected to vote on the potential ban at their meeting next week.
