Due to Reed Exhibitions' refusal to reconsider their decision to ban Modern Sporting Rifles from the February 2-10 Eastern Sports Show in Harrisburg, PA, the National Rifle Association has decided to withdraw from the show. We had called on Reed Exhibitions to reconsider their decision; unfortunately they have steadfastly refused to do so. As a result, the NRA will not be participating in the upcoming show in Harrisburg or in any other shows hosted by Reed Exhibitions that maintain this policy. We are disappointed that Reed Exhibitions has ignored the concerns expressed by attendees, the outdoor industry and the NRA in not reconsidering their position to ban the display of Modern Sporting Rifles.
At what point do they get the message? We are done sitting back and not fighting their plans.
The clowns that decided that scary guns wouldn’t be allowed should be in hiding by now.
It’s great to see exhibitors take a stand, but the big thing is that would-patrons have to decide to skip this one.
The Facebook boycott page has far more likes than the actual show site, and they are getting bombarded with people saying they will be boycotting.
would-patrons = would-be patrons
Good. The scum in the national press will spin it as waning interest in gun shows, but Reed will get the message.
which is why we have bammey....
a massive drift away from organizations that are anti freedom including not attending their shows nor their magazines nor buy their crap would send a a big message....
