Good morning all,we have received good feed back from IL Carry members,some have asked why we left DuPage fairgrounds.
After the Florida school shooting we were asked to cancel our March show by a group of about 5 local mothers,we declined so they began harassing DuPage fairgrounds with emails and threat of boycotts,the fairgrounds asked us to "temporarily" halt the sale of"assault weapons"at our last 2 shows of the season and we could resume sales in the fall,we reluctantly agreed,we had been there 50yrs and were trying to be good tenants,then they put the"assault weapons" ban in our new lease and added,high capacity clips and other legal accessorys,we declined to renew.
We are a hunting/fishing club,some of our members don't even own a gun but we felt we needed to make a stand for the 2nd amendment. Thanks for the positive feedback and please help get the word out and come to our new show.
Frank,PVSA show manager.
