Del Mar Fairgrounds Board Now Aware Of Gun Show President's Felony Conviction

GUEST:

Phil Diehl, reporter, The San Diego Union-Tribune

Transcript

The Del Mar Fairgrounds board of directors was recently made aware that the president of the company that puts on gun shows at the fairgrounds has a felony firearms conviction on his record.

Now the board is conducting an investigation, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune reporter Phil Diehl.

Crossroads of the West Gun Shows' president Bob Templeton's background has come to light as a result of the heightened scrutiny by activists who don't want gun shows held at the fairgrounds.

Diehl joins Midday Edition Friday to discuss the next steps the fairgrounds board plans to make.
