I'd agree, many of those vendors were not returning even if they reversed their decision and even if they did the crowds would have been greatly diminished.

Sad part is all those vendors that put down deposits Are most likely play hell getting their money back that they put up front in hopes of drumming up business. Most likely many if not most would not have anything to do with the so called reasoning at all but just have a nice friendly family oriented business much like the Reading Coal Stoves.

There is few a new articles stating they will refund the money to exhibitors but I haven't seen any mention yet about refunding money for tickets.

And heres why it was postponed....



'Enough is enough,' Feinstein says in proposing new gun ban.

In a statement on Thursday, the NRA said that Feinstein "has been trying to ban guns from law-abiding citizens for decades."

"The American people know gun bans do not work and we are confident Congress will reject Senator Feinstein's wrong-headed approach," the organization added.

In a sign of the gun lobby's influence, a nine-day sports and outdoor show scheduled to take place in Pennsylvania next month was postponed Thursday because the NRA withdrew its support over the decision by organizers to ban the display of "modern sporting rifles" -- the kind of semi-automatic weapons targeted by Feinstein's proposal.

The NRA canceled as a vendor but the NRA had nothing to do with the boycott. What a crock of *censored*.

More proof that the media and politicians change what is said, or they hear to fit their skewed agendas.

Wayne LaPierre's response to the inaugural propagandaddress:

In other related news, Senator Feinstein has issued a proclamation demanding that "Sunday", and "Monday", be renamed; due to the fact that it sounds like "Gunday".
Charles Shumer recommended "Obaday" , and " Allahday" as the new names.

I'm glad to see the promoter lost out and hope there not envited back next year.The state of Pa,Harrisburg,and all the hotels,resturants and small business lost out on expected revenues.But most of all the venders spend all year getting ready and spending money promoting theirselves.When all done and said i'd like to see the lost revenue that was expected next month.I guess I need to find something else next month. :down:
