Gun show ad ban will cost the paper
I recently received my postcard informing me about the upcoming Roanoke Valley gun show. I was disturbed to find that The Roanoke Times refused to allow this group to advertise in your paper. I would expect such tactics from the liberal papers in such places as New York and Washington, but not in a relatively rural area such as the Roanoke and New River valleys.
Although I am not a daily subscriber, I have bought your paper on a regular basis for approximately the last 30 years from newsstands in my area. I will discontinue this practice and search elsewhere for my daily news. I can only imagine the backlash you all would receive if you denied certain liberal organizations the privilege of advertising in your paper.
I will forward this e-mail to the businesses that I patronize and who advertise in your paper.
