I could care less. I don't think I've ever bought any firearm related kit due to a tv commercial. It's their business to run however they see fit. I love firearms but I also support their right to air whatever they want on their service. Too many people get caught up in the details these days...

Don't be fooled. History channel is quite liberal. Owned by the same media conglomerates.

1 person, no, gun owners or those who disagree w/ their new policy , yes they'll feel that one.

kinda like the reverse of the chic-fil-a incident.

and yes their right to not show gun commercials, also my right to choose another vendor.
