A Gun Show Without Guns?

After reading an advertisement for a Reno, NV gun show in a firearms magazine, William D. Maniaci, owner of Maccabee Arms LTD ( purchased two tables for the event, which was to be held at the Boomtown Hotel and Casino. Like many firearms dealers, he invested heavily in stock to be sold at the show.

Last week he received a letter stating that “In light of the recent unfortunate incident at Virginia Tech”, firearms would not be allowed to be displayed or sold at the show. That's right -- the "gun show" is now a "sporting goods and accessories" show.

Understandably upset, Mr. Maniaci is urging all Second Amendment supporters to boycott all enterprises owned by Boomtown's parent company, Pinnacle Entertainment Inc. You can read the full letter by Mr. Maniaci, including a list of all of Pinnacle Entertainment's holdings, at .

Read the letter and make note of these businesses. As Mr. Maniaci points out, "There are plenty of other hotels and casinos who are not anti-gun. Why should we patronize anti-gun establishments?"

Why indeed?
