NRA Withdraws from Eastern Sports & Outdoors Show Due to Reed Exhibitions Decision to Ban Modern Sporting Rifles

Posted on January 22, 2013


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.

I agree with the NRA. If enough people boycott the shows they sponsor, maybe they will get the idea. Maybe pro-gun people should Pickett the show and no one crosses them. Just my thoughts--

Good on the NRA. I dropped my membership a couple of years back when I thought they were going soft and was only a member of GOA. Needless to say after the recent crap... I'm a member again
