Residents Voice Concerns Regarding Newtown Gun Show

There is growing concern over the upcoming “Newtown Gun Show” to be held at the Newtown Sports Training Center on March 26-27, 2022. This is an Eagle Arms Production show.

According to Newtown Township Manager Micah Lewis, this type of use is not currently permitted under the existing Certificates of Occupancy for the Newtown Sports Training Center and on January 24, 2022, a Notice of Violation was sent to the owner of the establishment (Newtown Racquetball Assoc.):

At the January 26, 2022, Newtown Board of Supervisors (BOS) public meeting, several members of the public voiced concerns about this show. Dennis Fisher, BOS Chair, explained what happens next.


UPDATE: After #NewtownPA residents voiced concern, Jim Worthington says he will postpone the Newtown Gun Show until after he gets a variance from a Notice of Violation issued by the township.
