There are dozens of vendors pulling out of the largest outdoor show east the Mississippi. Good for them. IF the NRA doesn't pull out for fear of losing business i will be calling and canceling my membership. They have been silent so far and i fear the NRA will still show up despite this absolutely asinine move by the liberal assholes who run the farm show. Anyone who REALLY cares about our 2nd Amendment rights will not show up.
 
Please DO NOT ATTEND this event if you live up in the northeast. If you know anyone planning on attending tell them not to.
 
Thanks

Now this is just a classic case of cutting your nose off to spite your face.
Dealers don't have any black rifles or magazines left to sell, and if they do, it's going to be a small part of their inventory.
All they have succeded in doing, is alienating those who support such rifles, but might buy something else from the show.

Cabelas pulling out is HUGE. They are one of the big 4 in terms of money sponsors for this. There are rumblings that Outdoor TV is also pulling the plug which is the 2nd of the big 4 (progressive insurance and comcast are 3 and 4, both liberal ass companies which probably had something to do with this whole mess to begin with)

Ouch.  Sucks for them.  But props to all the vendors. 

Sad part is it is going to hurt everyone because of the stupid decisions of a few.

It is a GREAT show with a wide variety of vendors every year. It just sucks that a select few had to get caught up in the liberal ball washing regarding banning certain types of firearms. I am pretty much writing off anything the farm show offers from now on until they change their stance. And to be honest, i wish more people would back out, not just vendors but the tens of thousands that show up annually. How any red blooded American who owns firearms and believes in the 2nd Amendment can give these people money is beyond me.

NRA pulls out!
 
By the way, for those of you who don't know, Reed Exhibition, which runs this event, is a damn BRITISH company. No wonder they support screwing Americans out of their 2nd Amendment rights.
 
I really wish every last vendor would pull out of this event and leave these assholes high and dry.

I'm not sure it's a good idea for the NRA to back out of the show. It would be a place to recruit new membership, and explain our cause. Don't preach to the choir, preach to the ones on the fence; they need to be saved.

I understand it's a European company putting on the show. How many of the venders staying in the show are European owned??

Obviously, those company's have their own agenda and a different understanding of the second amendment let alone, skin in the game.

It would be a good thing for the owners of this forum(swfa) and others who sell products to find out who is still participating in the show. Then put pressure to back out of the show??

I disagree here. IF the NRA stayed in, while hundreds of smaller, more vulnerable companies/vendors backed out, what kind of message does that send as the lead dog in the fight for 2nd Amendment rights? I said at the top of this thread, had the NRA not backed out, they were losing me as a member forever. And i've talked to a bunch of folks at work alone, who felt the same way.
 
Apparently the NRA stayed in the game a bit longer as they were trying to get Reed to change their stance, but once that was a lost cause, they bailed.
 
I wish every last vendor pulled the plug. These assholes need a real message sent. So far over 200 have backed out, but 700-800 remain.
 
There is now a growing group of folks who are stating they will show up armed and surround the Farm Show, on public property of course.

I've not seen that, but there is no way that makes sense lol. Why would you promote SHOT SHOW and be pro semi auto rifles etc, and then ban them from another big show a month later???

Shooter, while I do not disagree totally with the NRA pulling out. I also look at it like this. The show promotor has successfully run off the argument to their actions. The NRA's job is to explain and educate the public what the 2nd Amendment means, and what dangers it faces. If they are not there to suppoort our side of the debate, and educate the public, how are we to gain more support from the public at large. I wouldn't have a problem with the NRA having a booth at an anti-gun convention because it could change some minds, but if they aren't there they can't change any minds.
I totally agree with everyone but the NRA pulling out of the show, but leaving the NRA there is like leaving the Green Berets to build an insurgent army.

Hopefully this starts some sort of transparency of where these company's and those who sell their products really stand on the issues pertaining to the second amendment.
To see how they handle a bit of "PC" pressure then putting there money where their mouth is.

Anyone have the list of who(firearms related) is staying in the show??
