Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show Says No to Black Rifles

Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation

Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation

MISSOULA, Mont. --(Ammoland.com)- Due to recent decisions instituted by Reed Exhibitions regarding the disallowing of legal modern sporting rifles, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation will withdraw as an exhibitor and conductor of the elk calling contest from the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show in Pennsylvania.

RMEF believes the actions taken by Reed, a British company, are detrimental to the Second Amendment and our right as Americans to bear arms.

RMEF reached this decision after careful deliberations and taking into account the stance of our members, volunteers, industry partners and fellow hunters.

We urge Reed Exhibitions to reconsider its policies to avoid a divisive and political atmosphere so RMEF can take part in an event that generates needed revenue for important on-the-ground conservation and hunting heritage projects in the region.

About the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation:
Snowy peaks, dark timber basins and grassy meadows. RMEF is leading an elk country initiative that has conserved or enhanced habitat on over 5.7 million acres, a land area equivalent to a swath three miles wide and stretching along the entire Continental Divide from Canada to Mexico. RMEF also works to open, secure and improve public access for hunting, fishing and other recreation. Get involved at www.rmef.org or 800-CALL ELK.

      At this point I’m more wondering what companies are confirming they are going to this show…

    2. That was a Great move, because we don’t need to mix with people that want to place “limits” on our rights. These British people have already said too much about Our Rights. I’m glad to see that there are also other groups that have pulled out, in support of our rights. Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation has taken the same position that I have taken, and it’s the American way of live.
