The world's largest gun show began today at the Sands Expo Center.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation's Shot Show will be held just miles from the site of the 1 October shooting. The event has been held in Las Vegas for 40 years but recent events have some wondering if the location should change.

The convention is expected to feature numerous weapons and accessories but one noticeably absent is the recently controversial bump stocks. The leading manufacturer of bump stocks will not be in attendance.


This is one aspect that has changed due to the 1 October shooting and only time will tell if other aspects follow suit.
