HAHA! Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show, nation's largest show, postponed after vendors pull out over gun ban!
After a week of protests following a decision to ban assault weapons, Reed Exhibitions has decided to postpone the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show.

Reed has not said if it will reschedule the show, which was originally set to open Feb. 2 at the Farm Show Complex. Reed has not answered repeated requests for comment this week.

In a statement on its website, Reed said:

“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."

Reed's statement is such BS, also. Why would you think people at a hunting exhibition would want to support someone who bans guns?

It really makes me wonder just how much pressure is being applied on the flip side to make companies make obviously bad long term economic decisions.

I'm glad the boycott worked though!

The article is referring to Reed banning assault weapons at the show and people boycotting due to this, not the ban being proposed via the federal government.

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 yet against gun control efforts being pushed in Washington and in several states.

They have a right to ban them. But we have a right not to attend and venders have a right not to exhibit. Getting the gun owners of America mad might not have been the best thing for a outdoor sports show where the vast majority of the attendees are very pro gun.

Actually, what I was wondering...do they have the right to decide to ban something AFTER they had already taken money from those vendors? From what I understood, they said no refunds...my husband heard on one of the talk show channels he listens to that a lawyer was looking to get into a class action lawsuit because of that.
