The issue arose last month, after changeable signs on the freeway were used to help navigate people to the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston. The signs alerted drivers to the High Caliber Gun and Knife Show, which started the day after Adam Lanza killed 20 students and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School before killing himself on Dec. 14.
“We had several people say Hey, this is bad timing, ” said Stuart Corder, director of transportation operations for TxDOTs Houston district. “We understand there is a wide range of opinions and weve got to be sensitive to peoples concerns.”
