    FILE - In this Oct. 11, 2014 file photo, comedian Jay Leno performs during the 2014 Carousel of Hope Ball at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.  Leno canceled a scheduled appearance at a large firearms trade show on the Las Vegas  Strip, after learning that a group representing victims of gun violence was gathering petition signatures urging him not to attend. A publicist for the former NBC Tonight Show host and the chairwoman of a gun control advocacy formed after a Newtown, Connecticut, elementary school shooting, said Thursday, Nov. 20, 2014, that Leno didn’t understand the show is hosted by a lobbying group for gun owners and manufacturers.
