Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show Says No to Black Rifles

Mogadore, OH --(Ammoland.com)- TenPoint Crossbow Technologies’ Chairman and CEO, Rick Bednar, expressing his company’s steadfast disagreement with the decision of the Eastern Sports & Outdoor Show management to prohibit the display and sale of Modern Sporting Rifles at its 2013 Harrisburg, PA event, has decided to remove TenPoint’s display from the upcoming February 2-10 show.

“We are taking this action to stand in solidarity with many other shooting and outdoor sporting goods manufacturers in support of the guarantees expressed in the 2nd Amendment to our Constitution,” Bednar said.

“We regret having to make this decision because we have supported this great consumer event nearly every year since our inception in 1994. It is unfortunate, but I believe we must take this position as a matter of principle.”

To underscore his decision, Bednar has also decided to purchase lifetime NRA memberships for all TenPoint employees who wish to have one.

“The NRA, more than any other entity, has led the effort to protect of our right to own and bear arms,” Bednar said. “The best way to support their effort is to grow the ranks of their membership.”

“The NRA mission, however, encompasses greater goals than simply protecting our right to bear arms,” Bednar continued.

“Before we opened our doors for business, we crafted a Corporate Statement that guides our decision making process, and we think it is compatible with the NRA’s larger view. In part, this Statement has motivated us to support their efforts.

Its last sentence states that, ‘… we are committed to the care and conservation of our land, water and air; to the humane and responsible management of our wildlife and to the preservation and expansion of recreational shooting and hunting.’ We believe the NRA shares a similar view.”

      GooseBusterBlinds supports the ban of semi auto sport rifles, according to Robert Boyd I contacted on their official website. I spent the day calling, and emailing companies who were still expected to show at the Eastern Sport and Outdoor Show, and after hundreds of emails and calls, Mr Boyd is the only person and company that responded negatively to me contacting him about it. If you hunt, I wouldn’t purchase anything from GooseBuster.

    2. When I buy a crossbow it will be a tenPoint! Stand firm folks,as someone once said”we must all hang together or surely we will all hang seperately”! Semper Fi

    3. Do not back down to the bastards in Washington your are playing right in there hands.
