Gun Show Bans Guns, Quickly Implodes

Go ahead, Democrats. Mess with the NRA.
The largest sports and outdoor show in the United States has been postponed indefinitely following severe backlash over a recently enacted policy banning the display and sale of “modern sporting rifles,” or semi-automatic rifles. The Harrisburg Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show was originally scheduled for Feb. 2-10 in Harrisburg, Pa.
To put it into perspective how quickly gun owners pushed back, consider that the new policy was implemented on Monday and just five days later, on Friday, the show was postponed indefinitely amid the outcry.
There’s a statement from the show’s foolish producers at the link. The show’s producers really do not understand or know their customers.
Ironically, there was probably little need to ban evil “modern sporting rifles,” since they have been selling so swiftly that they’re now scarce.
