PEOPLE POWER – P.A. Eastern Sports Show Cancelled Due To Gun Owner Outrage/Boycott….

Eastern Sports and Outdoor show had previously caved to political correctness (cultural marxism) and made a decision to remove sporting rifles from it’s Outdoor show.   The NRA and sporting enthusiasts responded with a movement to boycott the show, vendors pulled out and it appeared the show was going to be a complete failure.  So the company cancelled the event. 

(Wash Examiner)  Reed Exhibitions has decided to postpone, for now, the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show given the controversy surrounding its decision to limit the sale or display of modern sporting rifles (also called ARs) at the event. The show was scheduled to take place February 2-10 in Harrisburg, PA.

“Our original decision not to include certain products in the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show this year was made in order to preserve the event’s historical focus on the hunting and fishing traditions enjoyed by American families,” said Chet Burchett, Reed Exhibitions President for the Americas. “In the current climate, we felt that the presence of MSRs would distract from the theme of hunting and fishing, disrupting the broader experience of our guests. This was intended simply as a product decision, of the type event organizers need to make every day.

“It has become very clear to us after speaking with our customers that the event could not be held because the atmosphere of this year’s show would not be conducive to an event that is designed to provide family enjoyment. It is unfortunate that in the current emotionally charged atmosphere this celebratory event has become overshadowed by 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.

“ESS has long been proud to participate in the preservation and promotion of hunting and fishing traditions, and we hope that as the national debate clarifies, we will have an opportunity to consider rescheduling the event when the time is right to focus on the themes it celebrates.”  (EPOS)

    Meanwhile, Diane Feinstein invoked the David Gregory exception to DC’s strict gun laws, to parade around a bunch of scary-looking guns in her “all your gun are belong to us” presser today.

    And the Tyrant Witch dared to invoke the power of the Cross in directly confronting the NRA…

    Wonder how many times they had to check the thesaurus to be sure they were clearly saying “we caved to the progs and now we’re paying the price and good grief, we screwed up and we’re going to shut this down fast to preserve what cash flow we still have……” without actually saying it.

    Yesterday we had business up in the Portland area and had to go to Best Buy. On the way to Best Buy, we drove by a normally very busy Dick’s Sporting Goods. Oh, goodness. Not so busy. At first I thought it was actually shut down: nothing at the large entrance to indicate activity coming or going; the wide section of parking lot directly in front of their store completely empty. Then as we drove by, I looked directly in the big front windows: yup–they were open all right, and there were employees in there–standing about. Sorta perked me right up.

    Maybe it is because my comprehension skills are poor, but it sounds like they’re blaming us for their dumbass decision.

    For once, instead of rattling the sabers and huffing and puffing and making a threat of a boycott, I’d like to see an unannounced, pre-emptive all-out boycott that slams one of these kowtowing companies. That would send a direct economic message.

    Feinstein and the Great Outdoors – her idea of roughing it is to leave the window open in the Starbucks bathroom. Wonder why Feinstein isn’t out trying to nationally ban things like the open barbecue burners they’re after in California and fishing her PETA buds want banned as it causes discomfort to the principal in my trout almandine?
