Yes they did but we all know that the big bad NRA will get the "blame". Remember that pepper is from Washington.

"...a decision that directly affected a small percentage of more than 1,000 exhibits showcasing products and services for those interested in hunting and fishing."

BS!!!

It affected ALL of us and [b]OUR RIGHTS[/b. Keep the people that think only of THEIR rights, we don't need them but we will fight for their rights too.

Looks like they might just lose the SHOT Show too..'

Here's the NSSF press release web link below:

NSSF Statement on the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show

January 24, 2013


We have just learned that Reed Exhibitions has decided to postpone the 2013 Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show.

In the days following Reed Exhibitions’ announcement that modern sporting rifles would be prohibited from the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show, the leadership of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has been in intense, frank discussions with Reed Exhibitions management in an effort to reverse this unacceptable decision. These discussions reached an impasse.

NSSF is in no way affiliated with, nor does it participate in or exhibit at this show in any way. Reed Exhibitions does, however, manage the NSSF-owned SHOT Show (though Reed manages the SHOT Show, all SHOT Show decisions, policies and actions are made at NSSF’s direction).

Because of Reed’s recent actions, NSSF is considering all options regarding the management of future SHOT Shows.

It was the 170 vendors and special guest speakers who pulled out that caused them to shut it down.

It was pushing 300 vendors pulling out before they pulled the plug.

Alternative show to go see.. http://www.nrahuntingshow.org/

THe NRA was not taking the credit for it. The Writer of this story was more or less creditting them.
The NRA was given the Venders credit for it for pulling out and shutting it down.
Even boat manufactures pulled out when they heard about banning the sporting rifles.
Weather you Like everything the NRA does or not, the fact is, the NRA gets the blame or credit for it if has to do with guns and 2A no matter what.
They are looked at by ALL the others as the voice of gun rights and the 2A.

I think we also need to stop getting caught up in anti-gunners game also of calling them "Assault weapons" and call them ONLY what they are, SPORTING RIFLES.
I know ,and we know thier not, but i catch myself and others saying assault weapons sometimes when talking about them

NSSF needs to pull the SHOT show from Reed Exhibitions. Give them one chance. Change your mind. Now.

If no change from Reed, then NSSF must roll down the road and find another organizer, I would wager many would line up.

I see the cancellation is getting big time media play. Now, lets see how this shakes out.

I think it is too late for Reed and the SHOT Show. NSSF tried to reason with them on Reed's show but they would not listen.

Hopefully it will be an American promoter...

The mayor of Harrisburg had something to say about it...

The mayor's office issued this statement:

"It is unfortunate that Reed Exhibitions of Norwalk, Conn., has made the business decision to postpone the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show scheduled for the City of Harrisburg in February.

"It is also unfortunate that legal gun owners and the many families who have enjoyed a long tradition of hunting in the beautiful rural environment around the region will be deprived of this major event because of a controversy caused by firearms manufacturers who profit from the sale of weapons designed for the mass killing of human beings.

"Many regional arms and outdoor vendors and related services have been hurt by the postponement as well. This kind of conflict within the firearms community is the result of years of polarization between the majority American sportsmen and hunters who exercise their constitutional right to bear arms and at the same time favor reasonable illegal gun controls, and a minority of NRA members who refuse to recognize the very real problem of illegal military style weaponry and the mass havoc such weapons facilitate."

Once again as always the NRA is who blamed. The NRA is the only group they feel is the thorn in thier side and blocking thier gun controll ways.
No matter which anti-gunner its is, thier goal is to paint the NRA as evil and to destroy the NRA
