What it says about us

Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show: What Postponement of the U.S.'s Largest Gun Show Says About America

These are people who cherish their Second Amendment to be sure. They love an America that stays out of their way so they can use firearms in the field or to defend themselves and their loved ones. They cherish outdoor experiences with family and friends. They kill deer and eat the venison. They’re connected to the land and go to game commission meetings to give them hell if they don’t think the deer herd is being managed properly or the streams kept clean. They get tears in their eyes when a son or daughter catches a first fish or tags a first deer. They plant food plots to feed deer and hang game cameras to keep track of local bucks. They’re very involved in their outdoor resources and everything they do is taxed to fund conservation.

Reed Exhibitions’ leadership should go, too

I think the point of this article is that pro-2nd Amendment people and organizations are coming together and will not take it from anyone. Not progy politicians, and not wayward people and groups supposedly in their own ranks. That show “postponement”, or cancellation, was ripe for being miscast by the MSM. This article gets to the heart of the matter, and this side isn’t going to be fooled. At the least, it is a warning to RINO squish artists who became weak-kneed in the wake of Sandy Hook.


Thank you Mr. Skoonj

Most people won't say anything about their unwillingness to relinquish their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Since they're armed, I think it's best for meddlers to listen to their silence and change their ways.

I was involved in a Reed produced show for many years. Once the relationship dissolved, the show, under local management, instantly began to achieve new levels of success.

If it were not for the publishing giant behind the exhibition division, I don't know how they'd ever succeed at anything.

"Most people won't say anything about their unwillingness to relinquish their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms."

There is a lot of that going around. On the site it's called "The Discussion" and it's a private conversation being had between husbands and wives and between friends about 'what if'

IMHO, the reason there is no public bluster is that this time the people are deadly serious in what they are talking about and quite unwilling to discuss it in a public forum.

Just my observations.

I think you guys are dead right. I for one am getting really sick of arguments on both sides that talk about hunting rights. The Second has absolutely nothing to do with hunting and I am ready to punch the nose of the next person to bring it up. If there were no critters to hunt - no deer, no bears, no ducks, no wabbits, nothing - we would still need the Second Amendment every bit as much. Better article
