Protesters don't want gun show in their neighborhood

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)- Despite the cold weather, a group of people in East Knoxville stood outside to have their voices heard.

They're upset about the Chilhowee Park gun show happening in their neighborhood. They say this hits too close to home after several teens were shot and killed by gun violence in that same area.

"We're not saying they're doing anything wrong or anything like that, you know we don't know. But what we are saying is that guns are being supplied out on these streets." said Lawrence Williams with World United Ministries.

He says they plan to continue to protest at each show held at Chilhowee Park.
