GLENDALE, Calif. (AP) - Supporters and protesters faced off outside the Civic Auditorium for what will likely be the last Glendale Gun Show.

The Glendale City Council is set to vote on an ordinance banning gun shows on city-owned property.

The Los Angeles Times reports dozens of gun-show advocates turned up Saturday hoisting banners and American flags to denounce the impending law. Inside the auditorium people lined up for ammunition, gun bags and other accessories.

Supporters of the law told the Times that by allowing the event on city-owned property, Glendale was endorsing gun sales.

Councilman Rafi Manoukian proposed the ban last month after the fatal shooting of 27 children and adults in Newtown, Conn.

Glendale Gun Show events have earned the city $158,000 in the past three years.
