NRA spokesman says the NRA has no plans to alter the ads
Comcast is demanding the NRA remove images of guns from the two television ads that have been submitted for the Great American Outdoor Show (GAOS).
The ads–one titled “Family” and the other “Exhibitors”–include images of firearms that are on the screen for a split-second. After all, GAOS is a show for fans of “shooting, fishing, and camping.” For this reason, images of tents, large game, fish, and rods and reels are interspersed with the firearm images.
The GAOS is held in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, where Democrat Mayor Eric Papenfuse has already withdrawn police security as a way of showing his disapproval of the NRA. Speaking with Breitbart News, the NRA said Papenfuse demanded they pay the city $50,000 a year for five years–for a total of $250,000–on top of the fees they would be required to pay for use of the police force.

They dont want it. Doesnt mean they are afraid. None of the actions are erroding freedoms. They can hire private security if they really need protection and Comcast doesnt have to air any adds they dont like. Its the NRA trying to cry "they are taking our freedoms" in order to garner more attention to itself.
I joined the NRA while I was in the military (free lifelong membership) and I regret it. I have recived so much junk mail from the "head" of the NRA about freedom grabbing most of which was BS through and through. Its amazing from the outside I had no idea they cried wolf so much.
