The following information was just sent to me:

The Dallas Morning News has just changed its policy to NO LONGER allow ads for upcoming gun shows,. yet they continue to allow ads for "Escort Services" and the like. This put a recent gun show in Ft. Worth through great difficulty.

How Does This Affect You?

If the show promoters can't get the word out about the shows, then attendance drops. If attendance drops its no longer financially viable to produce these shows. Lack of shows impedes your ability to exercise your right to purchase a firearm or accessories.

What Can You Do About It?

Send an email to all the editors at the DMN and voice your views about the new policy concerning gun shows.To make it easy for you, here is a list of their email addresses. You can simply cut and paste it into your email client:

A better thing to do is NOT buy the Dallas Morning News. Print media is on its deathbed, let's help them along.

FYI: This policy change was confirmed by an employee at the DMN - her name was Kat. She stated they will allow ads only from valid FFL holders thereby not allowing shows to advertise. She did not clarify how they would validate this.

Also, there are still plenty of people who rely on newspapers whether they have computers or not.

I agree that canceling subscriptions will get attention - but only if enough are canceled. That's why it's important to get the word out to as many people as possible.

Does anyone actually buy papers anymore anyway? :D
I do. I'm on a mission to destroy all vegetation as well as the environment!
