TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The Tucson City Council voted unanimously Wednesday to approve a resolution that would require background checks at any gun shows held in city-owned properties.

The resolution was voted on during a study session earlier this month, but is now official.

Councilmembers Steve Kozachik and Karen Uhlich proposed the ban but all council members voted for it.

Kozachik says there is no reason the city should book gun shows at the convention center if private sellers there are free to skip background checks for buyers.
