NRA delays political ads after Las Vegas shooting

October 3, 2017

The National Rifle Association (NRA) has delayed political advertisements in Virginia in the wake of a mass shooting in Las Vegas that left at least 59 people dead and more than 520 injured.

The nation’s largest gun rights organization had originally booked $32,000 in cable television advertising to begin Tuesday, according to Advertising Analytics, a nonpartisan ad-buying firm that keeps tabs on the television market.

Now, those advertisements will begin on Oct. 10. At the same time, the NRA will devote just more than $1 million to ads airing on broadcast networks in markets around Virginia.

The NRA declined to comment on the shifting advertising. But a source close to the group said the change in schedule is part of their overall election strategy and that the ads were originally slated to begin running last week. Those ads were bumped back as well.

    Here we go again!! Progressive, liberal Democrats will jump at anything like this to try to take guns away from law abiding Americans who have no intention of committing a heinous crime such as was perpetrated in Las Vegas against innocents! They just can’t help themselves. I believe it was Raum Emanual who said they should never let a crisis go to waste and they sure aren’t going to let this pass by without trying to use it to impose gun control on everyone. It is a shameful display of Liberal intolerance for the Second Amendment. The fact that 59 people have died so far and 500 injured is bad enough, but Progressives are using this situation for political gain! Shame, shame, shame!!

    Isn’t this the time to run the guns don’t kill people ads. The fact that with the right type of guns one person can kill and wound a lot of people isn’t important.
