Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show Prompts Record Boycott, CTD and NRA Lend Support

By Dave Dolbee published on in General, News

British-owned Reed Outdoor Exhibitions owns the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show. Reed made the decision to ban all displays or images of Modern Sporting Rifles. American patriots and companies have answered by throwing our friends from across the pond a good old-fashioned tea party.

Eastern Outdoor Sportsmen Show

The Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show has taken a stance against Modern Sporting Rifles—Sportsmen are pushing back.

So far, over 180 companies and celebrities have confirmed their support of freedom of speech and the Second Amendment by pledging to boycott the nine-day-long show in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Each person reading this may not be a celebrity or have plans to exhibit at the show, but let’s all add our support to these fine individuals and companies by adding your name in the comments below and pledging to join the boycott.

Currently, Cheaper Than Dirt has no plans to have any personnel attend the show.

    I refuse to support those that refuse to support me in the exercise of my rights especially a European company.

    We had issues with England once before regarding our rights to bear arms. One would think they would have learned that it was going to cost them from the previous experience.

    I am a National Rifle Association instructor and recruiter. In the last three years we have had over 800 students in our CCW classes and have signed up over 500 members in the NRA. We have a Facebook page that in the last 7days as reached over 3,178 people this week alone. And you can bet I will be posting this on our Facebook page. Please will free to add us to your list of not attending. TopDog Shooters. http://www.facebook.com/topdogshooters

    It’s moments such as this that gives me goosebumps kind of like a great rendition of our National Anthem…
    There are many times, especially now with all of the anti-gun Media hype, that one could feel as if he/she stands alone in their beliefs. We may disagree on many issues but when it comes to our Freedom, granted to us by our creator and so many who came before us paying the ultimate price, we stand strong.
    I for one have a huge problem purchasing anything from a country that imprisons it’s innocent citizens for defending thenselves in their own home(Tony Martin – Emnith Norfolk England). The Brits should get their own house in order before trying to tell us what to do, obviously they have a very short memory!
    I have read many posts here and happily agree with damn near every one of them!
    I will NOT be attending this show.

    All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

    God bless you all and God bless America!!!

    I booked my hotel 2 months ago. Fortunately, I was able to cancel. I booked a different hotel and saved a bunch of cash. Thanks for banning picts of “dangerous” guns.

    Now can anyone tell me where the good clubs ae in the area? I’m coming from Alabama, and like those chubby Penn girls.

    I’m with you all the way Mr. Oros. Yours is one of many requests about who was willing to book and stay with this anti American sports show. I demand that this site post all the vendors who did not boycott this show so we the people can boycott them. I have had it up to here with political correctness. Now is the time to take a stand. What say you?
