LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE 3 )– After an uproar over Nazi merchandise at a Louisville gun show, the Kentucky Fair Board is banning racist and hate group items.

Nazi Christmas decorations and an authentic KKK robe were on display at a gun show at the Kentucky Expo Center last month.

The Kentucky Fair Board called an emergency meeting on the issue Thursday, and voted to put a blanket ban on similar items.
