Stop Billboards Marketing Firearms with Christmas Themes
0 have signed. Let’s get to 15,000!
We, the undersigned, believe that any firearm advertising that uses Christmas themed messaging is patently offensive and incompatible with community standards.
These ads market guns, ammunition, and silencers through the use of verses from Christmas carols and cartoon images from children’s stories. They disrespect families, mock Christian beliefs, and flout the norms of common decency.
With all due respect for First Amendment free speech rights, we ask that you insist that all billboard owners who are members of your organization abide by the voluntary Code of Industry Principles of the Outdoor Advertising Association of America and reject these ads in 2018. We request that you make an appropriate change to your Principles statement that reflects this position, and specifically state that holiday themed advertisements for firearms are offensive to many people and should not be allowed.
