Wouldn’t it be gratifying to see a number of people refuse to attend? A number large enough to make a difference?
There are nearly 13,000 likes on the Facebook Boycott page for the show. Many people are saying that they, their family and friends are not going to the show. I have been working this boycott for the last 4 days. I have recognized several names over the last few days, but I have talked to tens of other people that normally go to show, and they will not attend. I went shooting on Sat. and Sun. at MSA and everyone I talked to said they were boycotting - and I truly believe those people would have gone. I have gone every year since I moved here in the mid '80's.
About 250,000 people annually attend the show. They will be lucky to get 50,000 low information people this year. And those that go, will find nothing at the show. In fact, the show may just be cancelled the way the vendor and speaker boycotts are happening.
That is exactly what should happen. Boycott the event
