    I don't recognize many of the names on the 'not attending' list (maybe because it's out East). Anyway, I clicked on one at random and sent them a Thank You.

    The celebs are not the ones that made this happen! This all started on another hunting forum I belong to. As soon as I seen this I came over here immediately and made a post, to let you all know the goings on. Because I know some of you travel a good distance to here. Just as a heads up that it might not be the same as before! LOL, might not ever happen again.

    The boycott started at HuntingPA.com and the members there, you can thank them for standing up for our second amendment rights, and getting the ball rolling!

    Matthews Bows Releases Statement

    This is copied text from a statement released earlier from Matthews Bows… Please refer to their statement below.
    Like many outdoor enthusiasts, Mathews was surprised and concerned to learn that The Eastern Sports & Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, PA was banning many types of guns and accessories from being displayed and sold at the upcoming show in February. We are a proud supporter of our Second Amendment rights—rights that protect all other freedoms. We stand firmly with Americans that have made their voices heard and who choose freedom. Corporately, Mathews doesn’t attend the show and of course will not be in attendance in 2013.

    These people are showing some real intestional fortitude for standing up, not for themselves, but all sportsmen and women all across this nation. They deserve a medal.
    It is a financial loss for them but they still made the hard choice to abstain from attendence. I do take into account though they may have lost much more in the future if they had given in and gone there anyway.
    What really sucks is the loss many smaller local businesses will endure due to the decision of one lousey off shore promoter. They should be banned from doing business in this country ever again. Send them back to GB with their tails between their legs.
