Mods, I struggled with whether this is a media, social or political issue and settled for political. Ultimately I believe it is political.

So we have a pro gun commercial banned from the Super Bowl because why? There are no actual guns shown in the commercial, no bullets firing or even sitting harmlessly in a box. What we do have is plain old politically motivated censorship.

The Pro-Gun Ad Too Controversial for the Super Bowl


The argument over why this ad won’t make it to the airwaves goes like this: Daniel Defense attempted to buy Super Bowl ad time in several local media markets in November. Most of the markets did not accept it and the response from one station in Little Rock, Ark., is still pending.

A Fox Station in their home state Atlanta, Ga., told Daniel Defense in an email, “Unfortunately we cannot accept your commercial spots in Football / Super Bowl due to the rules the NFL itself has set into place for your companies [sic] category.”

The NFL says that it never saw the ad and never heard of it before it blew up in conservative media circles last month.

Well I for one just had to look at this dangerous gun commercial to see what they had done to offend the MSM gatekeepers.

Nothin', I got nothin' on why this commercial would be banned. Except maybe..

Daniel Defense’s Director of Marketing Jordan Hunter said “This was a branding thing for Daniel Defense definitely but we wanted to create an ad that was a constitutional ad,” he said.

"A constitutional ad!" Outrageous! There's the reason it was banned.

Yeah....this is a little bit old as far as news goes....but still glad you brought it here for digestion. The thing is.....the advertisement is all about AMERICANS who are MEN protecting their FAMILIES and doing it with GUNS.....and we can;t have any of that!!!!

Maybe it's because it dosn't say what to defend against.

It's more saying "You live in fear of the unknown cause we say so, now buy our gun, and be safe".

Don't shoot me, just saying

Maybe. Or maybe defense of your family is just so obvious that it doesn't need to be pointed out.

In 2012, there were an estimated 1,214,462 violent crimes. The violent crimes of murder and non-negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, and aggravated assault increased 1.1 percent, 0.2 percent, and 1.1 percent, respectively.

Nationwide, there were an estimated 8,975,438 property crimes.

Yeah, statistic can allways create some more fear, but statistic dosn't really show who the victims are.

And i doubt that the family shown in that commercial, is the ones threadened.

It kind of show the wrong picture of where violent crime is happening, even though it can happen anywhere.

But, i don't wanna go to much in to this, as i know i'm up against a tough group of people in here

What the hell.

Don't know what is worse the political commentary from ABC, or the 'Super Bowl' Banning the ad

When they have snipers deployed there, and more security than Fort Knox.

Lot's of Government people walking around the Super Bowl with guns.

Well that is a load of hydrocholro bullsnip.

Guys with guns are at the front doors of the ABC studios too.

Hypocrites.

Yup.

The word "Constitutional" is a trigger word these days for sure.

You know we must stay at a reasonable PC level.

Have they blamed the "Tea Party" yet?

HYPOCRITES!

Super Bowl Snipers

Black Hawk Helicopters, Armed Agents Prepared For Super Bowl

Rather astonished how many people embrace the police state.

There's no way a pro gun ad was going to find its way into the superbowl this year. Not with the what's gone on with shootings in the last year, and the current administrations push for gun reform in some way or another.

I'm not surprised. Although if advertisers are allowed to sell us poison and other things we don't need, I don't see why the gun thing is such a big deal.

Such is politics I suppose.

I get what you're saying. In real life I raised my family in an upper-class suburban neighborhood filled with white collar workers, no gangs, etc.

Unfortunately my house was broken into so many times I had to disable the external security alerts or the cops were going to fine me. I was also set upon by several thugs in front of my own house, needless to say I was armed or that could have turned out badly.

Defense is called for when you need it and bad things can happen anywhere and anytime.

And apparently it's 'constitutional free speech' protected free too.

I hear you.

I think i will just stay out of the disscussion, as i might say something that will trigger an argue.

Kind of ironic, i live in fear of debating US gun topics
That will keep my mind busy when i go to sleep

I was more pissed when last year a porn site commercial was not allowed to pass during the superbowl.

Now that was sad , a political statement about guns, not so much.

I don't think they are armed at this point but they certainly want to be.

The union for Transportation Security Administration workers said on Tuesday that it’s a good idea for some agents to carry weapons at the airport.

“Because of all of the vilification and hatred heaped upon both the agency and our officers … people show up at the airport every day angry before they even meet a TSA officer,” link

Probably so they can shoot people who hate and vilify them.

Private companies can do what they like.

You sould read the list of commercials the NFL banned, very "liberal" ones too.

I watched the video. I thought it was drama-queenish, although I expect Wayne LaPierre would like it.
