    And the utter hypocrisy of this is there will be no decrease of firearm violence on cable TV, it'll be business as usual. It's incredible.

    A meaningless gesture.

    Yep. How many shows on NBC portray people carrying or shooting firearms, especially while comitting crime? I agree with Carpro that it's meaningless in a practical sense; it is nothing but a feel-good act.

    Its crazy! The fact is there is a movement to rid US citizens the right to own firearms. And this is a result of that propaganda!

    And, perhaps, the goal to draw more advertising dollars from those seeking to ban all private ownership of firearms.

    Television is all about profit -- the bottom line.

    Good shows are canceled because of ratings points and not the content. Outrageous behavior draws viewers, thus advertising dollars.

    When I turn on the TV in the morning to get local news and weather, I could care less about the First Ladies new hair cut. Nor the lastest scandal from Hollywood, nor what Justin Beaver is doing. etc. & etc. Yet, have to wade through all that "stuff" for a few minutes of real "news" and 5 minutes of weather.

    Sigh....

    It would fit with in their MSNBCish sensibilities.

    Isn't this called discrimination?

    What if they refused to air any black people or homose*uals in ads? There would be a big uproar.

    I don't really trust NewsMax. I would need to see the documentation. They have a tendency to twist the truth to fit an ideological bent to stir up the dander of conservative readers. Not to say that I don't agree with their ideology but I just don't trust their reporting.

    Yes it is discrimination, but it is not illegal unless the subject is a "protected class" ie gender, race, ect

    This FCC info may shed some light
