    Word has got around Harrisburg PA Gun Show there will be No Assault Weapons Allowed. Vendors are pulling out. Everyone should write a quick email letting them know we can spend our money and time else where. I'd say even if they change there mind/rule they should loose out on our dime this time for even entertaining the thought.

    Assault weapon has no legal definition.
    Ask them to define one.

    Carry on.

    word has gotten around by who?

    was this an issued statement by the gun show promoter? or is it internet scuttlebutt?

    i would get an official statement before i took any rash action.

    So what, they'd all be priced at 3x what they're worth anyway! Heyoh!!! Oh yes I did!

    I don't go to many gun shows (and definitely wouldn't right now), but I'd personally boycott a show that pulled that. I have no room for companies or businesses that get wishy-washey with our rights. For the same reason I'll never step foot into Dick's Sporting Goods again nor will I ever order from Cheaper Than Dirt again.

    Heck one local gun shop won't even do transfers from CTD anymore. That shop only keeps a dozen or two guns on the premises and their main business seems to be transfers and some repairs, but he's already stated that if you're ordering from CTD to have it shipped somewhere other than his shop.

    They are priced as the free market demands. If you don't already have one and run the risk of not being able to get one...then maybe it makes some sense.

    Personally, I won't pay $1500+ from a basic S&W M&P-15 that I could buy summer before last for $599 (and get 5 free magazines) or $700 for a WASR. Remember the good old days because we won't see them again for a longtime of ever again.

    Gun shows tend to be overpriced even during non-crisis times. They would probably be insane right now.

    It's not the Harrisburg GUN show. It's the Eastern Sports and Outdoors show -- all hunting and fishing stuff, and about the biggest show of its kind.

    We've already got a thread running on it, and yes (thanks to the good folks of PA) they're getting an EARFULL over it. Some vendors have pulled out, many other vendors have announced that they're working to get the show folks to change the policy.

    Ironically, it is the same show group that is putting on the SHOT show out in Vegas right now!

    They've admitted that the decision is entirely out of fear of protesters getting in and causing a ruckus. :( But that this isn't a permanant change and once folks have settled down they'll probably allow ARs back in next year! :fire: Cowards and turncoats!

    Anyway, here's the main thread: http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=696041
