WOW ! I just saw this press release from… well I will not even classify her with a title, lets just say ‘Public Official’ Linda Thompson… She is claiming the ESOS cancellation was ‘unfortunate’ and… well, I will just let you read on… This is just plain disgusting !!!
The office of Harrisburg Mayor Linda Thompson described as “unfortunate” the news that the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show, scheduled for Feb. 2 at the Farm Show Complex, would be postponed to an undetermined date.
The postponement came after hundreds of vendors decided to boycott the show in response to a decision by organizer Reed Exhibitions to ban assault-style weapons and ammunition from the show.
“It is unfortunate that Reed Exhibitions of Norwalk, Conn., has made the business decision to postpone the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show scheduled for the City of Harrisburg in February.
“It is also unfortunate that legal gun owners and the many families who have enjoyed a long tradition of hunting in the beautiful rural environment around the region will be deprived of this major event because of a controversy caused by firearms manufacturers who profit from the sale of weapons designed for the mass killing of human beings.
“Many regional arms and outdoor vendors and related services have been hurt by the postponement as well. This kind of conflict within the firearms community is the result of years of polarization between the majority American sportsmen and hunters who exercise their constitutional right to bear arms and at the same time favor reasonable illegal gun controls, and a minority of NRA members who refuse to recognize the very real problem of illegal military style weaponry and the mass havoc such weapons facilitate.”
A Facebook page has been started to ‘Impeach’ Linda… I suggest visiting it.
