Comcast Pulls All Gun Ads – Is There No End To The Madness…

Daniel Xu, reporter for Outdoor News, writes that Comcast, the nations largest cable network, stopped accepting  and ceased all gun ads as February 8, 2013. Apparently, the change in policy came about when Comcast merged with none other than NBC Universal. The new policy is across 40 states and affects over 22 million homes passed. This is particularly disturbing since cable service providers have monopolies in the markets they serve. Absolutely mind boggling!

To the individuals impacted by this ridiculous policy, consider taking your business to Dish Networks. To advertisers who still believe in free trade and The Constitution, pull your ads and place them with a network or cable provider that believes broadcasting is part and parcel of the right to free speech in America.

Comcast recently defended its position with the following statement:

Consistent with longstanding NBC policies, Comcast Spotlight has decided it will not accept new advertising for firearms or weapons moving forward. This policy aligns us with the guidelines in place at many media organizations.

    Wonder if the next step is to ban all TV shows that use the word gun or have guns in them…
