(Harrisburg) -- Some gun enthusiasts are calling for a boycott of what's billed as Pennsylvania's largest outdoor-sports show because of a ban on displays of assault weapons.
Reed Exhibitions, a British company that runs the Eastern Sports and Outdoors Show in Harrisburg, has banned displays of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
Ed Several, a vice president of the company, says such exhibits might be "a distraction" in the wake of the recent mass shooting in Connecticut and the gun-control debate raging in Washington.
A number of people are calling for a boycott in postings on the show's Facebook page.
The nine-day show is scheduled to open February 2nd at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex.
