SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) Four gun shows about an hour's drive from Newtown, Conn., have been canceled.

Organizers say they weren't appropriate just weeks after a gunman killed 20 first-graders and six adults at an elementary school in Newtown.

But gun advocates aren't backing down from their insistence on the right to keep and bear arms.

The City Council in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., is urging a group to cancel a show there.

Show organizer David Petronis says it's not fair that the shows and their organizers are seen as the brunt of the problem. But he says he understands the reaction.
