More businesses are pulling out of the upcoming Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show because organizers have banned the sale and display of assault style and high capacity ammunition magazines.  The show begins February 2nd.  So far at least four gun stores have said they won’t participate including Trop, Lancaster Archery Supply and Cabela’s.  Some television celebrities who host outdoor shows have also said they won’t be coming this year.

    Looks like the so called "assault weapons" aren't the only things that will be missing from the show this year. Actions speak louder than words so make yourself heard gun owners of America. Make it known that we won't give inch when our rights are under attack, Also join the NRA or another gun rights organization that will make you voice even louder.

    The show is also going to lose hundreds of sportsmen that have gone there for years. It was really a stupid decision that solves nothing.

    There are over 200 sponsors and vendors who have pulled from this show! Hourly the list grows! ALL of the TV Celebs who was to be there have now canceled as well. There are now websites set up that are listing all those who are not attending so the public can still go to the websites and support them! TY to all of those standing strong for our 2A rights!

    I don't think it was the organizers. I think it was the Farm Show Complex Committee that made the decision to not allow the semi-automatic and assult rifles.

    The show is ran by REED Enterprises, which yes, is a company based out of the UK! They have a office in CT that they run the show out of. Reed is who made the announcement NOT the Farm Complex!!!
