NRA Withdraws from Eastern Sports & Outdoors Show
NRA ^ | January 22, 2013 | NRA

Posted on 01/22/2013 6:51:22 PM PST by ConservativeInPA

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.

Reed Exhibitions is based in the UK and is trying to squash 2nd Amendment rights in the US.

Good. I need some magazines, and would have probably gone. But obviously no reason to go since they banned them.

Piers Morgan was just hired today as a special guest speaker at the show. Also appearing with Piers is Ellen Degenerate, who will give three seminars on the topic: Lesbians and Vegetarian Cooking: How to Survive in the Bush.

There are nearly 13,000 likes on the Facebook Boycott page for the show. Many people are saying that they, their family and friends are not going to the show. I have been working this boycott for the last 4 days. I have recognized several names over the last few days, but I have talked to tens of other people that normally go to show, and they will not attend. I went shooting on Sat. and Sun. at MSA and everyone I talked to said they were boycotting - and I truly believe those people would have gone. I have gone every year since I moved here in the mid '80's.

About 250,000 people annually attend the show. They will be lucky to get 50,000 low information people this year. And those that go, will find nothing at the show. In fact, the show may just be cancelled the way the vendor and speaker boycotts are happening.

In addition to rocks... Slingshots can hurl ball bearings, lead balls, fragmenting explosive filled metal spheres and yes even machetes. They can also be painted black and and come in assault models. Much too dangerous for the show...

Machete Slingshoy

Progressive Insurance is headed by a far-left, Obama-funding jerk named Jack? Lewis.

he is one of the top donors to Obama and the Democrat Party. Unfortunately, people say that Progressive is a good insurance company so most people won’t drop them for another company.

But demonstrations against Progressive are definitely in order.

A sign might go like this: “Progressive is just another name for Marxist”

“””Is anybody going to be there maybe like Wham-o Slingshot?””

Slingshots are illegal in New Jersey as well as other states.
If you look on the websites for wrist rockets you will see they cannot ship them to several states.

“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,...”

History has shown that “giving in” like that is the wrong strategy. It shows you think your opponent has a valid concerns worthy of consideration. It validates their attacks and makes you look weak. As much as I despise the left we can learn from how they handle the opposition. They dont take a consiliatory approach, they become indignant that you would oppose them, ridicule you and refuse to compromise. We need to do the same. The arguments should be framed in terms of civil rights, oppression, fairness and freedom. WE HAVENT DONE ANYTHING WRONG! WHY ARE WE BEING ATTACKED? Is it suddenly OK to deprive people of their rights BEFORE they commit a crime? This is an argument we can win if we make it.

This battle is being won. There is no compromise. This Sportsmen’s show is one of the largest in the world. It is being shut down by consumers and vendors, many of which are not involved in hunting or shooting sports. There will fall out, or what I like to call market correction. If the show doesn’t go completely bust, the vendors that do decide to side with the promoter will lose business.

Are these boycotters people and businesses who were going to be exhibiting/speaking at the show who have now pulled out? Or are they people and businesses who are sympathetic to the second amendment who are letting their customers and followers know what a bunch of anti-american vermin the organizers are?

Because if they were actually slated and have now pulled out, the organizers best bet would be to rent the floor space out to a soccer league to try to recoup their costs.

“This battle is being won.”

So instead of the left beating the he!! out of the Sportsman’s show we are doing it for them. I’m not sure that accomplishes what we want although it sends a message to our side not to waiver. Its the Schumer’s, Cuomo’s, Morgan’s etc that we need to focus on crushing.

Sportsman’s show is doing what conservatives traditionally do, try not to offend anyone and try to appear “reasonable”. That doesn’t work. We need to show them that the new approach is better.

I remember the massive booth Cabelas had the year that I went; seeing them on the boycott list is heartening. Even though they typically sell a massive amount of merchandise for the show, it is just considered an advertising opportunity, not something that adds to the bottom line, with an overall goal of breaking even and cleaning out the warehouse.

that's a great idea. Not only would they make a point by not being there, the sign would be a constant reminder - and with almost 200 vendors not being there, it would be a clear statement all over the place. But...hopefully there won't be that many attendees to notice ;)
