Harrisburg Police File $95k Grievance For Being Denied Work At NRA Show

posted on February 9, 2016

The Great American Outdoor Show kicked off Saturday in Pennsylvania. What promises to be a fun-filled nine days for attendees in Harrisburg has turned into anything but for the city. 

Last month, Democrat Mayor Eric Papenfuse, an outspoken NRA critic, forbade police officers from working the NRA-sponsored show. This order came despite the fact that officers have worked security at the show for more than 20 years. 

Now, the police officers are fighting back—they’ve filed a grievance for the lost wages, which in 2015 totaled around $95,000. “Utterly unmerited,” groused Papenfuse. For 2016, the NRA has hired officers from nearby townships and the county sheriff’s office.
