Indiana Gun Stores Feel Comcast Ad Ban

Can't sell wares through TV ads

|

A decision by Comcast Corp. to ban commercials touting firearms and ammunition has left some Indiana gun store owners searching for new ways to advertise their products.

Rick Oliver, who owns the Lafayette-area gun store Haley's Lodge, said he's been told the store's TV ads will no longer be accepted. Oliver said he's confused by the ban but plans on shifting his television advertising budget to radio and print since Comcast is the Lafayette-area's only local cable provider.

"I've been running TV ads for 30 years. But if they don't want my money, I'll take it elsewhere," he told the Journal & Courier for a Friday story.
