TenPoint Crossbow Technologies’ Chairman and CEO, Rick Bednar, expressing his company’s steadfast disagreement with the decision of the Eastern Sports & Outdoor Show management to prohibit the display and sale of Modern Sporting Rifles at its 2013 Harrisburg, PA event, has decided to remove TenPoint’s display from the upcoming February 2-10 show.

“We are taking this action to stand in solidarity with many other shooting and outdoor sporting goods manufacturers in support of the guarantees expressed in the 2nd Amendment to our Constitution,” Bednar said.

“We regret having to make this decision because we have supported this great consumer event nearly every year since our inception in 1994. It is unfortunate, but I believe we must take this position as a matter of principle.”

I am only seeing this here on FR.

nothing in the MSM or print.

The left is doing propaganda by omission.

I doubt congress critters know how much $$$$$$$ is involved, if they even know anything because of the censorship.

So, is anyone left in the show? It seems to me that there will be quite a number of empty booths.

Reed Exhibitions is just a division of a much larger company. I wonder how much it'll hurt their bottom line?

About 233 have pulled out. I read there were about 1200 involved. One had leased 6500 sq ft for exhibits. One poster said there would be plenty of walk around room. Serves them right. I believe FB has over 16,000 likes for the boycott and a few hundred support it.

About time those on the right act up and show solidarity.

Reed Exhibitions has British DNA.

Apparently they are still ticked at what our extremist bitter clinging patriots did to the Redcoats and the 2A that followed.
