NASCAR Shifts on Guns, Rejects Ad Showing Semiautomatic Rifle

Posted by M. C. on September 9, 2019

From the comments

The NFL did not need us either. That worked out pretty well for them. They are now trying to sell shirts and merchandise on Home Shopping Club at 2 in the morning.

 

NASCAR IS already removing grandstand seats so they dont look as empty as NFL stadiums

NASCAR admits it is shifting its position on guns and the latest proof can be seen via the rejection of an ad that shows a semiautomatic rifle.

The NRA tweeted:

The NRA-ILA reports the rejected ad was from K-Var, and “included depictions of ‘assault-style rifles/sniper rifles.’” NASCAR’s media sales company told K-Var the racing giant is undergoing a “gradual shift in (its) position on guns.”

K-Var’s blog reported the entire quote from National Event Publications, which is NASCAR’s media sales company:

We just heard from NASCAR on a number of gun related ads and unfortunately, due a gradual shift in NASCAR’s position on guns, these ads must be edited/changed—especially those that are depicted as assault-style rifles/sniper rifles. NASCAR is still open to some of the less controversial gun accessories, concealed carry, or classes.

NASCAR’s changing position on guns follows Dick’s Sporting Good’s February 2018 decision to ban the sell of commonly owned semiautomatic rifles. Moreover, the change in NASCAR advertisement is occurring at exactly the same time as Walmart, Kroger, and Walgreens are banning open carry in their stores.

When toting guns in high school was cool

The “Greatest Generation” had no millennial culture. Thank goodness!

When toting guns in high school was cool

New York City high schoolers used to pack heat as often as they packed lunch.

This month, more than 100,000 city public school kids walked out to protest gun violence — but last century some students attended class armed with their rifles and practiced shooting on school grounds.

Many of the city’s public high schools had shooting clubs and a few even had gun ranges on their premises, according to accounts from the Department of Education and others.

There were at least three shooting ranges in public schools, the DOE said, including Curtis HS on Staten Island and Erasmus Hall HS in Brooklyn.

Another inside Far Rockaway HS in Queens, which closed in 2011, is shown in a black-and-white archival photo from May 1929 displaying a compartmentalized gun range with at least five windows to shoot from and cranks for students to pull the targets back and forth…

Guns, Pharm, and Schools | GreenMedInfo | Blog Entry

This is the same psychiatric drug problem that has been so prominent in the national and your local media, right?

Guns, Pharm, and Schools

With every mass shooting, there’s a renewed call for stricter gun control laws. The only problem is: guns aren’t the only problem. Guns have always been a part of America’s culture. As long as the conversation centers exclusively around gun-control we’ll continue to neglect something even more important and just as deadly: the growing mental health crisis that has been decades in the making. Where it begins and why may surprise you.

Manufacturers and prescribers of psychiatric drugs are making a killing in America…literally. With each mass shooting that occurs, it’s becoming more and more apparent that the real problem we have in this country is one of mental health and poor lifestyle habits.

Guns Are Less Available Than Ever – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on March 7, 2018

I don’t think Mr. Williams is a liberal/progressive.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2018/03/walter-e-williams/hidden-agenda-or-ignorance/

…We must own up to the fact that laws and regulations alone cannot produce a civilized society. Morality is society’s first line of defense against uncivilized behavior. Moral standards of conduct have been under siege in our country for over a half a century. Moral absolutes have been abandoned as guiding principles. We’ve been taught not to be judgmental, that one lifestyle or set of values is just as good as another. We no longer hold people accountable for their behavior and we accept excuse-making. Problems of murder, mayhem and other forms of anti-social behavior will continue until we regain our moral footing.
