TUCSON – At the “Crossroads of the West” gun show Saturday, University of Arizona junior Kiely Katz opened her plaid Burberry shoulder bag, took out a wallet shaped like a Japanese animated cat and plunked down her credit card for a $549 Glock 31 semiautomatic handgun.

[...]

Katz was among the thousands of patrons who streamed into the Pima County Fairgrounds, a 10-mile drive southeast of Tucson, exactly one week after 22-year-old Jared Lee Loughner allegedly opened fire on a crowd outside a Tucson grocery store, killing six and wounding 13. He allegedly used a semiautomatic Glock 19.

The rampage has reignited the national debate about gun laws. Critics have called for stiffer regulations, while gun rights defenders counter that the shooter was an outlier whose reckless behavior should not restrict responsible firearm owners.

“The events at the Safeway store were tragic and unprecedented, but they weren’t about lawful gun ownership,” said Bob Templeton, the president of Crossroads. “It was about a mentally ill person who gained access to a firearm he shouldn’t have.”
