The Daily Caller is reporting that the Eastern Sports and Outdoors Show (aka Harrisburg Gun Show) may be limiting the types of guns and magazines that can be displayed at the show due to recent events.
“We have made the decision not to include certain products that in the current climate may attract negative attention,” they posted on their website.
The show organizers have not given details on what types of items will not be allowed, but LancasterOnline.com is reporting Representatives from Kinsey’s Outdoors in Mount Joy and The Sportsman Shop in New Holland, which are both affected by the ban, said they were told by Reed officials they could not bring to the show for sale or display any AR-style rifles or ammunition magazines capable of holding more than 30 rounds.

The Daily Caller also reports that the NRA is considering pulling their support of the show depending on the organizer’s decisions.
