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
