    NSSF Dumps SHOT Show Manager over AR-15 Ban

    I hadn't seen this posted here (or anywhere else before a few minutes ago). I thought it was interesting, so here ya go....

    The National Shooting Sports Foundation recently announced it has dumped Reed Exhibitions as the official manager of SHOT Show.

    The move is in response to Reed Exhibitions’ decision to restrict AR15-style “modern sporting rifles” from the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show early this year following the December 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., that killed 20 young children and seven others....

    I'm thinking Cheaper Than Dirt, D i c k's Sporting Goods and several other gun-related businesses that gave into knee-jerk responses to Sandy Hook are suffering similar expensive consequences for their decisions.

    Although I cannot afford to go to many of the gun shows, I support the firing of this organization. There have been too many eronious and errant reports of what happened at thee different tragedies. Hell, lets do away with the national weather service for making tornadoes that kill, disfigure and destroy personal property. My wife and I are strong supporters of gun rights, and are both CCL holders in the state of NM. AR-15s are not dangerous, it is the idiot libtard behind it that is the danger. We carry every day and all the time, except where specifically prohibited by federal or state law.
    I am old and slow, BUT dead on with my aim!!
