State legislators have revived a bill to ban gun shows at the Cow Palace, even though the venue ended the events last year.

The bill, SB281 by Democratic Sen. Scott Wiener and Assemblyman Phil Ting of San Francisco, would prohibit the sale of firearms and ammunition at the state-owned event center in Daly City, with the exception of gun buybacks hosted by police. The measure passed the Senate on Monday by a 27-11 vote and moves next to the Assembly for consideration.
