http://washingtonexaminer.com/nra-boycott-kills-outdoors-sho...Excerpt:A massive boycott sparked by the NRA and other gun-rights groups outraged that the nation's largest outdoors show banned the exhibition of assault weapons has caused the show's organizers to abruptly cancel the week-long event in Harrisburg, Pa.The successful boycott was the biggest demonstration of support by the outdoors industry and outdoorsmen yet against gun control efforts being pushed in Washington and in several states. "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.," the organizer said in a statement Thursday.----The pro-gun side is highly organized and highly motivated, even to the point of taking down gun shows that kowtow to the hoplophobes. I imagine politicians (especially Senators up for re-election in less than two years) are paying attention.
