Nra To Pull Out Of Gun Show In Pa

01.24.13 | Sarah Harnisch

The National Rifle Association is joining the growing list of vendors who are pulling out of the eastern sports and outdoors show in Harrisburg next month. In a statement on its website, the NRA says it tried unsuccessfully to have Reed Exhibitions, the organizer of the show, reverse its decision to ban the display and sale of assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. The NRA added it will not take part in any upcoming shows hosted by Reed Exhibitions that maintain this policy. Since the ban was announced, several vendors have decided to boycott the show.
