TxDOT signs to stop giving directions to gun shows
HOUSTON (AP) -- Texas transportation officials, in the wake of last month's school shooting in Connecticut, are suspending the use of freeway message signs in Houston to provide directions to firearms-related events.
The electronic signs are routinely used to direct traffic or tell visitors where to exit freeways for various events, including rodeos, sporting events and gun shows.
Stuart Corder, director of transportation operations for the Texas Department of Transportation in Houston, tells the Houston Chronicle that officials suspended the signs' use for gun shows shortly after receiving complaints following a gun show that was held a day after the Dec. 14 shooting in which a gunman killed 26 people, including 20 children.
Gun show organizers say the signs are important, but their absence won't ruin their shows. TxDOT signs to stop giving directions to gun shows
