Watch The Super Bowl Ad That Has Been Banned From Airing During The Game

super bowl bans certain commercials

An ad slated to run during this years Superbowl has been banned because of the advertisers business.

According to a story at gunsnfreedom.com, the ad was submitted and refused by the NFL due to it’s content.  The official reason given by the NFL was:

“Unfortunately, we cannot accept your commercial in football/Super Bowl spots due to the rules the NFL itself has set into place for your company’s category.” 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.

“Of Course”?  They’ll show you ads for alcoholic drinks and unhealthy snack foods, run others featuring half naked actors and allow halftime shows that you have to make your kids leave the room for.  They’ll (of course) allow ads for the latest epic Hollywood movie also!  (Which, almost certainly, will feature guys with guns shooting the hell out of something or someone.) Seems just about anything goes.

Except this.

A simple ad promoting one of many potential home defense options.  I’m sure they’ll allow ads for alarm systems, security agencies or other home safety ideas if any are submitted. Why not this?  (This isn’t really all that surprising as the NFL has had an anti gun sentiment for awhile now.  They won’t even let off duty cops, who are required to always carry their weapons, do so at games anymore.) 

As for this ad, it (unlike those movie ads) doesn’t feature any weapons. The logo for Daniel Defense is the only time you ever even see a gun and it’s only a drawing!  This seems to be less an “offensive ad” situation and more of a “we’re anti-gun and don’t want you to see them in a positive light” situation. 

Whatever side of an issue you may stand on, you shouldn’t be able to completely prevent the other side from having their say.  That’s out and out censorship and it’s wrong, no matter what the issue.  

What do you think?

Rock With Dubba G!
