This week, the National Shooting Sports Federation (NSSF) has received a form letter from FOX stating that the network has a policy against accepting firearms or ammunition advertisers on a national level.
Pursuant to the network’s ban of firearms and ammunition sponsors during their Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) events we reported on in January, the NSSF sent a request to FOX to lift the ban. The form letter that was sent in reply states that while the network has a policy against firearm and ammunition advertisements at the national level, local broadcast stations may accept firearms and ammunition-related advertising based on their local community standards.
The NSSF has sent a call for action to gun owners, asking them to voice their opinion on FOX’s corporate policy to the network’s corporate headquarters at:
Corporate Headquarters FSN
10201 W. Pico, Bld. 103
Los Angeles, CA 90035
