Comcast bans gun related advertising

Out of sight, out of mind. Comcast joins the war on guns by eliminating gun advertising on its cable systems.

The Journal and Courier, a Gannett paper in Lafayette, Indiana is among media reporting the move:
“Consistent with long-standing NBC policies, Comcast Spotlight has decided it will not accept new advertising for firearms or weapons moving forward,” said Chris Ellis, a spokesman for Comcast’s advertising sales division, Comcast Spotlight.
Just another move by elites in their effort to villainize guns, a deliberate step to keep them out of a mainstream arena, and an action that will leave Comcast viewers less informed about firearms and firearms related businesses in their areas.

Time Warner and Cox Cable already place some restrictions on firearms advertising. USA Today notes those companies don't note the restrictions on their websites.
