KSL.com and executives at parent Bonneville International Corp. aren't saying how long the website's suspension of gun sales will last or whether the ban might be made permanent.
Several calls to Bonneville for comment yielded only a general statement, which was not attributed to any person. The statement was arranged by Jeff Simpson, Bonneville's president and CEO.
The statement comes after an earlier declaration of the suspension, which was announced Tuesday in response to the shootings Dec. 14 in Newtown, Conn. In the tragedy, a gunman killed 20 students and six faculty members at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
