State Fair Boycott
« on: July 18, 2023, 08:51:20 PM »
I was never a one to attend the state fair here in Delaware but I see they're blocking anyone with a CCW from practicing their 2A rights. I imagine a boycott is in order.

We think alike- Boycott.  And, let them know your not attending, and why;

A larger impact might be to contact any vendors that set up at the fair and ask them to notify fair officials that they will not return next year unless this policy is revoked.

Question I have is....   Anyone THINKING of boycotting, did you attend last year?  Year before?  If I boycott, no big deal to them..  I haven't been and did not plan on attending. So me boycotting is zero movement to them on attendance.

I remember the boycott of Dicks.  Everyone was predicting they'd be out of business.....  I think their doors are still open.

Agree.  Our impact on this would be minimal. Certainly not enough to change their woke  minds.

If major vendors could be persuaded to boycott, might make a difference

Iím leery of attending because the only real interest we had was the livestock and Iím still fearful of bringing back avian flu to our hens.

All true- which is why an email to them might be more effective.

Personally, I would like to see the DSSA set up camp for the week, representing gun safety, the NRA, hunting, law enforcement, historical aspects like how firearms in history won us independence from the redcoats, etc.

That might start the ball rolling in the right direction, because farmers are not anti-2A, and that's what the fair is all about isn't it?
