The NFL has rejected a commercial submitted by firearm manufacturer Daniel Defense for the 2014 Super Bowl. Daniel Defense manufactures rifles on the AR-15 platform, but the commercial did not even mention Daniel Defense products. Instead, Guns & Ammo says the commercial "focused on themes of personal protection and fundamental rights."
The Super Bowl will air on FOX, and FOX says they could not accept the commercial "due to the rules of the NFL itself" regarding firearm-related businesses.
The NFL's prohibited advertising categories include, but are not limited to, "contraceptives," "fireworks," "distilled spirits and flavored malt beverages," "tobacco," and "firearms, ammunition, or other weapons."
As Guns & Ammo noted, the "firearms portion of the NFL’s Prohibited Advertising Categories states":
5. Firearms, ammunition or other weapons are prohibited; however, stores that sell firearms and ammunitions (e.g., outdoor stores and camping stores) will be permitted, provided they sell other products and the ads do not mention firearms, ammunition or other weapons.
Guns & Ammo noted that "according to these guidelines, Daniel Defense’s Super Bowl commercial does not violate NFL policy for two reasons":
Daniel Defense has a brick-and-mortar store, where they sell products other than firearms such as apparel.
The commercial itself does not mention firearms, ammunition or weaponry.
Although the Daniel Defense commercial did not mention firearms, it did show the Daniel Defense logo at the end--and that logo is of a DDM4 rifle. Upon being rejected, Daniel Defense offered to leave their own logo out of their commercial or even replace it with an American flag. But the NFL refused to budge.
Guns & Ammo also noted that "the NFL’s decision to deny the ad comes after Daniel Defense ran a commercial in local Georgia markets during the 2012 Super Bowl XLVI on NBC, with no objection from the NFL. That particular commercial pictured the manufacture of firearms and concluded with a clip of Larry Vickers shooting a rifle."
The ad in question can be seen below:Super-Bowl-Commercial-By-Gun-Company Daniel Defense Commercial - YouTube

No surprise here. You're talking about millions upon millions of viewers in the US alone. This country wouldn't dare educate people or want them to think for a moment that firearms might actually be a good thing for people to have. But it's okay, because the NFL is working to promote the ACA, so we can all rest easy.

That's right. Support those Texans and Cowboys! (how many are felons that can't even own a fire arm?) Pour your money into merchandise so they can spend it fighting to remove your freedoms! Are you ready for some Marxist Socialist Dialect?!!

I have never in my life been a professional sports fan. The thought of a bunch of prancing, felony committing, whiney assholes becoming multi-millionaires playing with a ball sickens me and the bug eyed, rabid fanboys totally clinches it for me. I do however enjoy college and high school sports.

Could you imagine if those same fanatics were as passionate about protecting our rights? We'd never have to worry about encroachment into our freedoms again.

Fact! It's funny when a professional athlete supports the 2nd amendment and the legal ownership and use of firearms they get hammered 6 ways from Sunday. But if one of them is illegally carrying and/or using a firearm then it just gets swept under the rug and played down. It's no different than with Hollywood celebrities. They have different sets of laws/standards they must follow :(

Curious how many of the National Felons League players that people worship have weapons charges on record but they can't run a commercial.
