Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, October 06, 2017

Organizers of the Eastside Cannery Casino Gun Show, which was scheduled for this weekend, have canceled the event. Boyd Gaming Corp. spokesman David Strow said Thursday that canceling the show was "a mutual decision" between gun show organizers and Boyd Gaming, which acquired Las Vegas assets of Cannery Casino Resorts last December. It didn't seem "prudent" to go on with the show, Strow said, in light of the mass shooting Sunday ... Separately, a representative with the National Shooting Sports Foundation declined to comment on the annual SHOT firearms industry trade show. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones of all those killed and injured in the criminal attack in Las Vegas," spokesman Mike Bazinet said. "Out of respect for the families of the victims and the law enforcement process, we are not going to comment or participate in media requests made relating to this attack."

Every gun show in America should be cancelled, if they don't cancel they should be protested by thousands of people who are sick of the slaughter of fellow human beings. These gun nuts are fetishists, they need to find a better way of expressing their masculinity. If you are so tough go fight in boxing or other such sports, there is nothing tough about shooting unarmed, innocent people. The Las Vegas shooter was, in the end, a coward. That's why he killed himself so that he didn't have to face the consequences of his action. A urinal should be build on his grave so that anyone who wants to could piss on his body. I'm pretty sure Jesus would stand in line to do so.
Gun shows are psychopathic displays of killing potential, when is enough, enough?
Who attends gun shows anyway? Psychopaths, that's who. Who else would so glorify weapons of death?

Never been to a gun show. Never will go.

And with all of this going on, I have less and less interest in ever owning a gun

Now is not the time to be cancelling gun shows.

evidently gun shows are like stage shows on the strip...all the time. one of the reasons sighted,
possibly, for the shooter not to have drawn that much attention. nevada is an open carry state
and people go there and they buy guns.

i appreciate your intent but it's probably gonna' be hard to convince people to protest where

there's a good possibility there will be other people in attendance that don't agree, that could

be on the margins of society, mentally, and are armed

Just saw on the local news this morning that this is FALSE the gun show was not cancelled. In fact in a callous way the statement was they can do two things at once, like chewing gum and walking. They could mourn and still carry on with the show. Doors open at 9am.

They're mourning? Sure.

Every so often we need a mass shooting so the politicians can scare the public into buying more guns.
