NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Ending future gun shows at the Fairgrounds Nashville may not be over yet.

Metro Councilman Steve Glover filed a resolution Thursday asking the fairground’s board to overturn their Tuesday decision banning gun shows.

Glover maintains the ban would cause the city to lose money and the shows should continue.

“More importantly, there are lawsuits that are coming now that will literally cost taxpayers millions of dollars and I know that taxpayers don’t want to pay that bill,” he explained to News 2.

Glover continued, “So we’re going to see what the fair board does. Hopefully they’ll overturn and rethink it, and do the right thing.”

There’s no word on when the Metro Council will take up the resolution.

On Thursday, Mayor Megan Barry said she wants to know if the board’s decision was illegal.
