    Comcast Cable Drops firearms related advertising

    Comcast drops gun shop ads – The Post and Courier

    Just received the following message from Georgia Carry : An information clearinghouse for Georgia Firearms License issues and news

    5) Comcast Cable no longer accepting advertising for gun stores or gun ranges

    This was sent in by Rusty Morris for AR Bunker.
    We were just notified by Comcast that they would no longer allow any advertising by gun stores and gun ranges on local cable channels. This means small businesses such as ours will no longer be able to place advertisements for local viewing.

    They told me this would go into effect on Feb 25th. We have forwarded this info on to NRA and NSSF for their comment.

    They pulled my ads last week without informing me. I guess the liberal media is finding a way to keep our message out of the public eye.

    Thanks
    Rusty

    I bet if you were advertising a mosque you wouldn't have a problem. Very sad.

    Cable and phone companies are just like the government, they have gotten too big and have too much control.

    Time to find another cable provider, or switch to a dish... Or, quit everything but over-the-air broadcasting and use internet services like hulu and vudu, and netflix.

    The latter will save enough money to buy a new firearm every few months... If they are ever available again...
    All that said....
    It could be worse.

    I work for AT&T, this will give me ammo when I run up against comcast. In my state, people hate this crap.

    I bet they don't stop showing TV shows and movies with guns in them. LOSERS!

    Haven't used cable or broadcast television for years, now. Don't miss it in the least, including decisions like this that get made by the corporate interests.

    Reality is, television's only one avenue of advertising.

    It's been a good ten years, now, that internet-based advertising has shown it can work if done well. Plus, folks simply using Google to search for "gun stores miami" (or wherever) can see website listings by smart businesses that leverage the power of tags/flags on pages instead of simply relying on traditional advertising channels for all their visibility.

    Better still is the shop that's so good at what it does that formal, traditional advertising simply isn't required. In some towns/cities, I've seen a few of these. They're well-known in the area, with word-of-mouth "advertising" communicating the value just fine. In most places I've lived, the "go-to spot" has been well known, and most of the other middling stores just schlep along hoping they can keep up.

    The government is coaxing big media against anything pro gun, either by force, threat, or financial influence.

    Next news broadcasts will refuse to air any news story that shows firearms or firearm owners legally using firearms to defend themselves. That wouldn't be much of a stretch from now...but still.

    I dropped cable TV years ago. Every now and then I'm stuck in a hotel and I'll turn on cable.....man has it gotten really, really, awful! Its nothing but fake reality TV shows. Cable TV will never be welcomed back into my home, even if it's free.

    IMO, Comcast provides the worst service of any of the providers in my area and has lost out to Direct TV for the most part. The only areas that Comcast does well in is the large rental condo complex's where they don't allow outdoor antennas/dishes.
