America’s largest outdoor sports show to ban AR-15′s
Posted on: January 18th, 2013
The Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show, also known as the Harrisburg Gun Show, has announced it will limit the type of firearms that it will allow to be exhibited. “We have made the decision not to include certain products that in the current climate may attract negative attention,” they posted on their website.

The hunting and fishing show, the largest consumer event in the nation, offers 1,200 exhibitors and will run from February 2 – 10, 2013, just outside of Harrisburg, PA.

A representative to the show told the Daily Caller that “no specific information was available on the type of restricted product at this time” and she offered to have someone call back with the information.

~~Very stupid move . these rifles are used for hunting in nay states and in compitition etc, there are many different AR platforms in camo for varmint/ predator hunting and many exibititors make and sell equipment calls etc in those avenues. The display of said arms on the back wall of their booths draws the people. I've worked this show years back and it's not a cheap endavor,and a lot of work and hrs. For them to do this is to cut hier own throats and those of all the outfitters and dealers who paid for space. I know a few people who will NOT attend due to this idiot action on their behalf. sportsman and outdoorsman had nothing to do with Sandy Hook.doing this seems to be a passing the blame. I know I saved my money

I will not patronize those who are too afraid to stand for what is right.

I'll be going. There are a lot of small businesses there that can not afford to pull out at this point. I will not punish them for the show owners bad judgement.

There is a list posted on one of the threads at PennLive, looks like close to 50 so far, but yes Cabela's is the largest so far.

Edit: More than 60 now.

~~ kINDA LIKE THE FIRST GUY TO EVER DO THAT ~~ The cliffhanger in Florida could have been irrelevant had it not been for the disappointment in Tennessee.

If Vice President Al Gore had carried his home state, with its 11 electoral votes, on Tuesday, Florida alone would not have been decisive for Gov. George W. Bush of Texas.

:lol: :lol:

Apparently you have never met some of the women I know, and they don't have a makeup artist working on them every day, charging us $200 + for they're services.
