Comcast pulls gun shop ads
from cable network

ABC12 (Flint, MI), by Kristen Abraham

Original Article

Posted By:Summernite, 2/19/2013 9:29:11 AM

A gun shop owner said firearm manufacturers, distributors and retailers are being targeted unfairly after Comcast announces it´s dropping all gun shop ads from its nationwide cable network. The cable company recently acquired NBC Universal and this is a long standing policy there. When a local ad agency recently placed an order for Williams Gun Sight in Davison Township, it was denied. Owner Tom Wright said he´ll take his business elsewhere.

Comments:
What I find so outrageous is that Firearms are considered offending to Comcast but Male Enlargement pills are not. Perhaps if Firearm Dealers place advertising with a naked couple in a bathtub staring over the lake with their Remington´s, it´d be ok.

The fastest way to nip this in the bud. We need to have Gun Owners cancel their accounts. Give them a taste of their own medicine. The Dolan´s are all about the $$$´s. They live in NY and are big Cuomo supporters.

Well, this confirms that I made the correct choice to switch my Internet provider. I just wish that I had waited a week so that I could have given this as a reason as well.

I don´t have Comcast but if I did, after this report, I wouldn´t have it long. And so should other like-minded supporters of the Second Amendment. Drop Comcast.

They don´t advertise meth or cocaine or heroin, which is why no one uses it.

After visiting a couple of my favorite gun shops over the last couple of weeks, I question the need for anyone in the gun business to advertize. At this point in time, it seems like wasted money.

Everyone is nearly sold out of everything.

That´s Comcastic.

What a dumb move. All Michiganders love their guns. Detroit gang-bangers love their guns. The law-abiding gun owners in the rest of the state (who are trying to protect themselves from the Detroit gang-bangers) love their guns.

I have comcast. I have not seen a lack of gun adds here at least on the outdoor channel. I had never seen gun shop adds on TV, but I hear them on AM and even some FM radio stations all the time.

If as one commenter stated that Comcast has a government sanctioned monopoly in the city/county, then they should fall under the anti-discrimination statutes. The gun shop is a legally licensed concern carrying on business in the local community. People should petition their local government to rescend the contract to Comcast, and they should be prosecuted under the civil rights statutes.

Don´t patronize these folks! They think you are stupid and will prove it by violating the very essence of capitalism that has made this country the greatest in the world. Will these idiots never learn to simply pay attention to running a profitable business and leave the politics to those knuckle-dragging types within the beltway? They deserve to fail.

Cracker Barrel Old Country Store reversed course Sunday, putting back on its shelves the products it had removed because they were tied to a star of the cable hit "Duck Dynasty." In a statement on its Facebook page, Cracker Barrel said, "When we made the decision to remove and evaluate certain Duck Dynasty items, we offended many of our loyal customers. Our intent was to avoid offending, but that´s just what we´ve done.

Comcast Spotlight, the advertising and sales division for Comcast Cable, has halted all ads having to do with guns on its nationwide network. “Comcast Spotlight has decided it will not accept new advertising for firearms or weapons moving forward,” the company said in a statement. “This policy aligns us with the guidelines in place at many media organizations.” This month, Comcast acquired NBC Universal in a $16.7 billion deal reported by Media Decoder.

White House blames fox for
destroying Michelle’s garden

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

´America´s royal baby´: How Chelsea´s first

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
