I laughed myself silly when I first read about this. Sure, there are a few ads for stuff like games or toys or movies or shows out there that show people shooting or pointing guns. But I found it pretty darn moot to pull those ads when there is a whole plethora of shows broadcast on Time Warner that have guns all over the place.
Some of these channels would likely lose at least half their programming if shows with guns were blocked.
It's a nice gesture on Time Warner, but a pretty funny one.

Warner Bros.

So I don't suppose they'll be promoting that very much. :blush:

I've noticed no one smokes anymore since they banned cigarette ads.

I think this is funny and hypocritical of them since so many of their shows have guns in them.  Whats the difference if its in a advertisement or in a show.

I suppose if an African Aardvark went on a rampage, they would announce that they will no longer run ads that feature Aardvarks... There just aren't that many ads that fit this gun category... so it doesn't hit them in the pocketbook AT ALL..

As Hilander and other have said.. it's very much a hypocritical play for public 'warm and fuzziness' with them... "Oh look at us! We care! We're DOING SOMETHING!"

(I had to use Aardvark as the example... I just love that word!)
