Reed Exhibitions posted a notice today (Thursday) on the website of the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show, saying there is an “emotionally charged atmosphere” that would make it impossible to hold an event “designed to provide family enjoyment.”
The nine-day show in the Farm Show Complex had been scheduled to start Feb. 2. Many of the vendors had announced they were pulling out.
The organizers banned the sale and display of assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines.
