There’s only one way for gun rights to win the culture war: break the mainstream media blockade. That’s a bit of a problem, obviously. Not only do all the major media conglomerates push civilian disarmament in their editorial coverage, they ban firearm advertising. In short, guns and gun rights are blacklisted. In fact, if Al Gore hadn’t invented the Internet, gun control will still reign supreme. But he did. And here we are, with “new” media chipping away at the anti-gun mainstream blockade. And now, this [via news4jax.com]. . .
A home shopping network for gun sales will soon launch six hours of programming, then expand to 24/7 within a year.
GunTV will be based in California [ED: of all places]. It’s set to launch in January with programming between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m.
GunTV will face more restrictions than other shopping channels like Home Shopping Network or QVC.
Needless to say (although it will have to be said all the time) buyers have to have a gun shipped to their local FFL for the requisite, entirely unconstitutional FBI background check. The channel faces other hurdles, too.
For one thing, Louisiana gun distributor Sports South is the sole supplier. That may not make the channel very popular within the industry. For another, what cable or satellite TV company will carry GunTV? The schedule [below] indicates that the producers have secured the graveyard shift … somewhere. If the service is more-or-less restricted to the Internet, well, good luck with that. No, really. Good luck.
