Fox bans firearms, ammunition, knife ads from its coverage of UFC events


Recommended Posts

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) — the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports industry — has learned that FOX Sports Media Group has banned advertisements featuring firearms and ammunition from its coverage of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) events.

While the UFC has yet to make an official announcement, NSSF has confirmed that “absolutely no firearms, ammo, hunting or knife companies will be permitted as sponsors in any Zuffa-promoted events.”

NSSF is encouraging all gun owners, sportsmen and firearms enthusiasts to contact FOX today and urge them to rescind this anti-gun corporate policy.  FOX’s decision to ban advertisements for lawful products owned by more than 80 million Americans is nothing more than corporate gun control.  We expect better from FOX.  So should you.

Make sure your voice is heard.  Here’s how to contact FOX:

Corporate Headquarters FSN

10201 W. Pico, Bld. 103

Los Angeles, CA 90035

Phone: 310-369-1000

Thanks for the info DREW!!!!

I'll be sure to make my voice heard. I guess Fox figures it's okay to show knockouts, tapouts, blood and gore, but firearms commercials....Why my oh my that's just too violent Give me a break.....Maybe they're afraid to show what Sam Colt said when he said I've made all men equal.
