Colorado used to be one of the top hunting, fishing and outdoor destinations in the continental United States. Then liberal anti-gun Democrats got control of the state legislature and the governor’s mansion. Once they had control, they began passing a number of anti-Second Amendment laws. Some gun and firearm accessories manufacturers moved out of the state because of the laws. The Outdoor Channel cancelled the four programs based in Colorado and blacklisted the state from further productions until they repealed the anti-gun laws. At least 2 of the state’s top Democratic politicians lost their seats due to their anti-gun agenda. This is why the news of Outdoor Retailer, the nation’s largest outdoor recreational show, being moved from gun friendly Utah to anti-gun Colorado is so shocking.
Politics has been cited as one of the main reasons the nation’s largest outdoor recreation show will be moving from Utah to Denver next year, the Associated Press reported.
The Outdoor Retailer trade show, which puts on two shows per year, will be leaving Utah after 20 years and moving to Denver due to Colorado’s more progressive political climate.
The show’s organizers said they had considered moving due to Utah’s Republican state leaders’ opposition to more liberal public land policies.
Obviously, the people in charge of Outdoor Retailer have a clear conflict of interest. They say the move to Colorado was politically motivated and yet they moved their outdoor recreational show to one of the most anti-gun states in the nation. Hopefully, such a move will backfire and hurt their sales enough to make them regret moving to Colorado.
