Skip to comments.Comcast pulls local stores’ commercials over gun policy
Posted on 03/27/2013 1:18:32 PM PDT by Twotone
Comcast is slowly but surely erasing guns from all its advertising, and shop owners in Georgia are the latest to be told their ads will be pulled if they dont take out all reference to weapons.
Ray Reynolds owns United Loan and Firearms, a pawn shop in Augusta. He told the Augusta Chronicle on Monday he was notified last week that his ads would be pulled from the local Comcast cable station unless he took out all references to guns including in his shop name.

perhaps Comcast should not show programs that have the “evil devices” in them?
To think that Comcast was started in Mississippi by a WW2 vet.
I am so glad that I didn’t change to Comcast and I was considering it because Verizon is a bit more expensive, but the expense is worth it after hearing about various stories on Comcast lately!
You know things are messed up when a private bakery can’t refuse to make a homosexual wedding cake, but a publicly regulated service provider is allowed to trample on our second amendment.
Evil devices, indeed. Maybe it’s time for a letter writing campaign to make them take all of those block-buster movies off their channels!
Hook a PC up to your TV and enjoy better programming from the internet.
I’ve got Comcast, and if I hear them trying it here, it’s Dish.
No more tolerance for libs.
I’m also on Comcast, & Dish is looking better & better all the time.
Great point! Only a law-abiding adult with a clean record would be able to obtain a gun from a shop that advertises on Comcast. But, any number of felons, dangerously mentally ill individuals and children could be influenced to commit acts of violence by viewing guns used in such evil ways in programming carried on Comcast.
Importantly, in most major cities, cable companies run monopolistic businesses, under license from the city government. Therefore, a campaign to the government asking them to take away their monopoly status, or offer it to another company, would be a huge threat to Comcast, costing them a gigantic fortune.
I’ve tried them all and DirecTV is the best!!
Be Ever Vigilant!!
I had the fortune of having Comcrap once. Their customer service rep once told me to call back in a few days if the cable on half my street wasn’t fixed. Only then would they send a truck out.
Comcast can’t even fix my email problems. Forget about gun ads.
What next? Ted Turner banning Jane Fonda’s workout tapes?
Everyone sees the danger. Not only is Comcast influencing the criminals and mentally ill they are advertising for and glorifying the use of gvns via their programming.
Won't somebody think of the Chill'rin!!!???
Time Warner Cable still broadcasts at least two gun related shows that I know of. I think both are on the History Channel.
I have had Comcast for 30+ years. I do not watch a lot of channels but I have never seen an ad for anything connected with guns. My Internet went out Monday and the repairman was out this morning rewiring the outside. He agreed with my daughter that the old wiring was a mess. It had not been updated for decades. I have never had any kind of trouble before.
Got a smart tv for Christmas and it is hooked up to the internet but I have never used it. I like my iPad too much.

You like watching movies on a 3-inch screen? Have your eyeballs fallen out yet? :-)
Nah, I don’t like movies but my daughter and her family do. I like my tunein internet radio station and their 1950’s music plus I play several games. Luckily some of the games work without the internet. When I watch tv, it is usually on the military channel plus paranormal shows.
You do realize Charlie Ergin is a devout Baraqqi, don't you?
“their ads will be pulled if they dont take out all reference to weapons.”
I will agree with comcast...after they pull all TV shows and movies that has any reference to weapons.
“When I watch tv, it is usually on the military channel plus paranormal shows...I like my tunein internet radio station and their 1950s music.”
So, you probably like H.G Wells and War of the Worlds with Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers playing in the background. That’s cool. I’d watch a movie with you.
I grew up in the 50’s and have heard singers I never heard of. Have you heard of Patience and Prudence? May be the other way around. I love Vera Lynn, Everly Brothers, Kingston Trio, Pat Boone, Elvis, The Crests, The Browns, Doris Day, Patti Page, Connie Frances, and all the others. I even heard The Chipmunks earlier singing their Christmas song. I like tunein better than Pandora. I had forgotten how much better the music was back then compared to the junk today. On my desktop computer, I like bostonpete.com and the old country western music. Nothing better than the Sons of the Pioneers, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, etc. I don’t know what channel I was watching but it had space programs which were very interesting plus one had a lot of shows about ancient history. I like ancient Egypt, Peru, Mexico, and others.
2nd Amendment bump for later.......
