Check out what the mayor of Harrisburg wrote in response to the Outdoor show cancelling!! How pathetic and uneducated!! Shes part of the problem...

Harrisburg Mayor Linda Thompson also released the following statement on the cancellation of the show:

"It is unfortunate that Reed Exhibitions of Norwalk, CT has made the business decision to postpone the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show scheduled for the City of Harrisburg in February.

It is also unfortunate that legal gun owners and the many families who have enjoyed a long tradition of hunting in the beautiful rural environment around the region will be deprived of this major event because of a controversy caused by firearms manufacturers who profit from the sale of weapons designed for the mass killing of human beings.

Many regional arms and outdoor vendors and related services have been hurt by the postponement as well. This kind of conflict within the firearms community is the result of years of polarization between the majority American sportsmen and hunters who exercise their constitutional right to bear arms and at the same time favor reasonable illegal gun controls, and a minority of NRA members who refuse to recognize the very real problem of illegal military style weaponry and the mass havoc such weapons facilitate

This was pulled from Facebook.

If those are her words, she is dumber than John S said she is!!

There been some speculation that Reed may have been pressured by some level of gov't. Seems plausible it was her.

It is truly people like her that are polarizing this country. It is that fact that we can live and let live, that we have issues like this. They want it all and will not budge on their beliefs.

And with Harrisburg being the financially-sound bastion of safety, decency and low crime that it is, she knows of what she speaks!!! LMAO!! Some "military arms" down there in the right hands would do a world of good for law-abiding citizens there living with that crap she won't do anything about!!!!

This is another example of how we can stand together. Inform others when it's time to vote for these kind of people. VOTE her out of office next time.

HaHa. She doesn't know what she's talking about. She's saying this was driven by gun manufacturers. This was a grassroots effort. Gun manufacturers pulled out late in the game; same with the NRA. It's the people who have spoken, not the "gun lobby," or the gun manufacturers.

That's a typical blame passing statement. Lets not be truthful and tell people why the show was really cancelled but point the blame somewhere else and exaggerate the sport rifles more. I'm glad I don't live there. I say move the show somewhere else in pa. A lot of other venues that could house the show and communities that would love the business.

We fail to recognize the 'very real problem of illegal military style weaponry'??? Mrs. Mayor, please name the last ILLEGAL weapon that created mass havoc. I had no idea Reed had planned on having illegal weapons there....my bad....

This is the best Harrisburg can do for a Mayor? Way to go informed voters!!! (Not directed at any HPA member)
