NFL Bans ‘Offensive’ Pro-Gun Ad from the Super Bowl (Video)

danieldefense

The NFL’s  increasing political correctness now extends to opposing gun rights. 

Daniel Defense, one of the nation’s leading manufacturers and retailers in the firearms industry, was willing to pay top dollar for a commercial in the 2014 NFL Super Bowl. But the commercial — emphasizing personal responsibility, family security, and fundamental rights — was rejected “due to the rules the NFL has set into place for [Daniel Defense’s] category.”

This despite the fact that Daniel’s Defense does not actually violate those “rules.”

Top Right News looked in the NFL rule book, and we quote…

 The NFL’s Advertising Policy addresses several Prohibited Advertising Categories, including guidelines for ads featuring alcohol, video games, movies, prescription drugs, and, of course, firearms.

The firearms portion of the NFL’s Prohibited Advertising Categories states:

“5. Firearms, ammunition or other weapons are prohibited; however, stores that sell firearms and ammunitions (e.g., outdoor stores and camping stores) will be permitted, provided they sell other products and the ads do not mention firearms, ammunition or other weapons.”

According to these guidelines, Daniel Defense’s Super Bowl commercial does not violate NFL policy for two reasons:

·Daniel Defense has a brick-and-mortar store, where they sell products other than firearms such as apparel.

·The commercial itself does not mention firearms, ammunition or weaponry.

So the 62-second ad features NO firearms, and Daniel Defense was even willing to swap out the company’s rifle logo at the end of the ad with an American flag — but the NFL rejected them a second time.

The ad complies will all league rules and regulations, but the NFL considers the ad to be too offensive to air.

Do you find this ad “offensive”?

UPDATE: A source told Top Right News this afternoon that the NFL wants to avoid “controversial political issues”, and that weighed into their decision. But why then did the NFL allow this gun control ad by rabidly anti-gun mayors Michael Bloomberg (NYC) and Thomas Menino (Boston) during last year’s Super Bowl?

Is the NFL’s anti-gun attitude “offensive” to you? Let them know:

    I’m not a football fan, but I happened to be in the Twin Cities a couple weeks ago and watched the Vikings play on TV with my family. Because of some moronic rules, the game was a tie. All that time, effort and money was wasted because they did away with the sudden death overtime. Nobody WON the game. In the end there wasn’t even a reason to play it…. And these morons are in charge….

    The NFL is under assault from REgressives-they are trying to walk a thin line between the scum on the left and their fans-if they had the sense God gave a rock, they’d go all in and tell REgressives to eff off. Most of those panty waists on the far left don’t watch football anyway, why does the NFL cater to them? It’s just like banning smoking in biker bars, yathink for a second any REgressives are yaknow going to visit one?

    It’s all about the left’s sick need for control-they know best and either you kowtow to them or they unleash the PC hordes on you. If you need to see how we support those that stand up to these punks, see Chick-a-Fil.

    Interesting. One ad was banned for dealing with reality, while the other was allowed for spewing pure fantasy…last time I checked, criminals don’t really have much respect for gun laws, moron.

  • Frank Embrey

    yep another pos”s don’t watch football and now never will

  • jaygoji

    The elites have their fingers everywhere. Pushing their agenda. Seems they’ve made it to football, usually a bastion of American ideals. Sad day for all.

  • kazoober

    Watch the CFL instead. More action and no stupid commercials.
