HARRISBURG — The National Rifle Association has been selected to take over the operation of the outdoor show at the Harrisburg Farm Show Arena, according to a release from the NRA.

The next show is scheduled for February 1-9, 2014.

NRA officials told reporters they want to make it a long-term partnership. They said they intend to have staff in Harrisburg year-round and want to bring national presence to the show.

The 2013 outdoor expo was cancelled after operators instituted a ban on the sale of  high-capacity magazines and semi-automatic weapons.
