Gun industry gathers just a few miles from mass shooting

LAS VEGAS (AP) -

The gun industry is holding its biggest annual trade show this week just a few miles from what is now the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. It was just in October when Stephen Paddock slaughtered 58 concertgoers outside his high-rise Las Vegas hotel room using a display case worth of weapons, many of them fitted with bump stocks that enabled them to mimic fully automatic fire.

It's a bit of a mystery what exactly will be among the thousands of products crammed into the exhibition spaces at the National Shooting Sports Foundation's SHOT Show convention. The public and general-interest media aren't allowed inside.

But one thing is known: Slide Fire, the leading manufacturer of bump stocks, a once-obscure product that attracted intense attention in October's aftermath, won't be among the exhibitors.
