Posting on behalf of a TPF Steering Committee member:
I just wrote to Tulsa Channel 6 (CBS) TV to question their lack of judgment in running (multiple) ads on Friday, Jan 4, for the Metcalf Gun Show in Tulsa this weekend. Channel 6 News was still covering the Sandy Hook massacre story...
If you saw the article about the Stamford Connecticut newspaper, the Stamford Advocate, recently running a gun show ad RIGHT NEXT TO A STORY ABOUT SANDY HOOK you may understand that I think Channel 6 is just about guilty of the same insensitivity.
Anyone else want to contact Channel 6 about this? Personally, I think they are participating in promoting gun shows and should be called to account. Our gun culture doesn't exist in a vacuum. It is reinforced in many ways, including by the gun show ads on TV.
Tulsa has the biggest gun shows in the country. Gun shows are the easiest place to buy multiple guns with no background checks.
