RE

Naturally, we're going to have people that are going to come on here and make complaints about this but it is that corporations right to decide what they will and will not advertise.

I really do not even see the point for having guns advertised on television in the first place. I guess people are going to see the advertisements and run out and purchase guns.

I really do not care how much the gun manufacturers are willing to pay, that ad space is better served for something else.

Huh??

Comcast Spotlight is the local advertising that comcast places over existing ads on cable channels. NOT syfi or any other nbc/comcast owned channels. I've never ever seen a gun ad when i had comcast in chicagoland.

Every Action Movie is an Ad

Every action movie is an ad for all kids of weapons.

Anyone seen the Expendables 2?

They will show a wee bit...

OK, a lot of bit of the ultra violent movies... death and destruction in every frame... so they make money off of it that way but advertising is some sort of a-moral ground?

Hypocrisy is alive and well... and as usual, Comcrap is... full of it.

Guns pointed at people??

Neither Comcast nor Time Warner have any problems airing programs where guns are pointed at people. The ad revenue from gun shops is insignificant compared to their total revenue, and this is just a PR ploy.
