Liberals don’t mind what anyone does as long as they’ve mandated it.
Comedian Jay Leno announced this week that he will not be appearing at the Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show that will take place in January 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The show is run by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and is considered the biggest and most comprehensive trade show in those industries. Leno had been previously booked to perform at the State of the Industry Dinner, but abruptly canceled after what organizers called “bullying political tactics” from gun control groups.
“We are clearly disappointed by Jay Leno’s decision not to perform at the 2015 SHOT Show State of the Industry Dinner,” announced the NSSF in a press release. “He unilaterally cancelled his promised appearance due to pressure from the anti-gun lobby, which included false statements about our industry and its commitment to genuine firearms safety, which we attempted to personally correct with him, but to no avail.”
Gun control organizations only recently discovered that the comedian, formerly the host of The Tonight Show, was set to perform at the trade show. Organizations such as the Newtown Action Alliance and Coalition to Stop Gun Violence immediately criticized Leno’s decision to appear, and drafted a online petition for him to cancel his performance.
