    Major Gun Show Postponed, Good this will spread

    Ban, NRA, Pennsylvania, Politics News
    One of the nation's largest outdoor shows was postponed indefinitely on Thursday after pro-gun rights groups and the National Rifle Association boycotted the event in response to a decision by organizers to ban the exhibition of military-style assault weapons.

    The weeklong Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show was scheduled to begin Feb. 2 in Harrisburg, Penn., but Reed Exhibitions, the show's organizer, posted a statement on its website announcing that the show would be "postpone[d], for now … given the controversy surrounding its decision to limit the sale or display of modern sporting rifles (also called ARs) at the event." "Modern sporting rifle" is a term devised and promoted by the gun manufacturing industry to describe military-style assault weapons.

    The initial decision on Jan. 16 to bar the display of assault weapons at the family-themed event was made in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Connecticut, a tragedy which galvanized public support for broader gun safety laws and led to a vigorous debate over the merits of civilian ownership of "modern sporting rifles" (MSRs).
