Sportsman show in Harrisburg....

I just watched the noon news, Lancaster channel 8, the report on the up coming show.
the mayor of Harrisburg asked for a $20 an hour raise for police presence this year besides $250,000 in donations over the years.
what is that all about ? is this another way to try to limit guns & or hunting ? or is it outright blackmail to hold the show ?
I would like to see an interview with the mayor & the NRA to find out exactly what is going on............

I believe it is time to move the show out of Harrisburg , The mayor has used the promoters as if they are a bottomless money pit to many times. let the complex sit empty.

Two pretty good articles that spell out the mess this has become.

I can't stand that 10% of my tickets go to City of Harrisburg. But they'll never find the 24 acres under roof anywhere else and I'd be surprised if it moves. Betcha it remains a contentious issue between NRA and HBG for years, one in which the NRA will always stay a step ahead.

In a battle of political wits between the NRA and HBG's worthless Mayor, my money's on the NRA.
