For those of you who might not be familiar with this....
Every year, the Eastern Sports and Outdoors Show
is held in Feb in Harrisburg, PA. PA is my home state, and I often go there. It takes all 5 buildings of the Farm Show complex.
After Sandy Hook, the show management, Reed inc, out of Connecticut, decided to ban AR-15 type weapons from the show. Last year, the Tactical section was one of the most popular at the show.
After many NRA members contacted the NRA, demanding the NRA take a position against Reed, they finally came out last week and issued a statement of non-support.
In addition to many vendors and long-time show-goers saying they would not attend, yesterday the NSSA also pulled out of the show.
Today, after a huge backlash from gun enthusiasts vowing to not support the show, Reed management decided to "postpone" the show.
I am glad the NSSA took the position and withdrew from the show!!
