But you might not know that hunters and sportsmen continue to discuss the issue on the Wild Life blog, where outdoors editor Mark Taylor strives to maintain a cordial atmosphere.
Here’s the latest from Taylor, who tells us about a huge outdoors show catching flak for its decision to ban the display of AR-style rifles:
Pennsylvania’s Eastern Sports and Outdoors Show, known as the Harrisburg Show, is one of the largest hunting- and fishing-related expos in the East.
It won’t be as large this year.
Exhibitors and speakers are pulling out by the dozens — the list stands at 200-plus and counting — in protest of the show promoter’s decision to not allow the display of AR-style rifles and accessories at this year’s show.
Update: As of today, the Harrisburg show has been postponed, according to the show’s website.
