RALEIGH — One of the largest media companies in the country has toughened its policies on gun advertising.
Time Warner Cable will no longer run commercials that show semi-automatic weapons or images of guns pointed at people. The company recently pulled some gun advertisments after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary school and has made changes to its advertising policy that took effect on Thursday.
In December, Surf City Guns and Ammo store owner Dorothy Royal said commercials for her store were pulled by Time Warner Cable out of respect for the victims of the mass shooting in Connecticut.
"We had absolutely no problem with that. We agreed to it. The discussion was that after the holidays when we resume back to work that they would start running our commercials again,” said Royal.
However, the commercials never went back on Time Warner Cable.
