    Default NASCAR Shifts on Guns, Rejects Ad Showing Semiautomatic Rifle

    NASCAR admits it is shifting its position on guns and the latest proof can be seen via the rejection of an ad that shows a semiautomatic rifle.

    The NRA tweeted:

    NASCAR is taking a "gradual shift…on guns" and will no longer allow partners to advertise commonly-owned rifles. This pathetic decision will cause their current customers to take a gradual shift on [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and will alienate potential customers. Good luck!

    The NRA-ILA [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] the rejected ad was from [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], and “included depictions of ‘assault-style rifles/sniper rifles.'” NASCAR’s media sales company told K-Var the racing giant is undergoing a “gradual shift in (its) position on guns.”

    K-Var’s blog reported [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] from National Event Publications, which is NASCAR’s media sales company:

    We just heard from NASCAR on a number of gun related ads and unfortunately, due a gradual shift in NASCAR’s position on guns, these ads must be edited/changed—especially those that are depicted as assault-style rifles/sniper rifles. NASCAR is still open to some of the less controversial gun accessories, concealed carry, or classes.

    NASCAR’s changing position on guns follows Dick’s Sporting Good’s February [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to ban the sell of commonly owned semiautomatic rifles. Moreover, the change in NASCAR advertisement [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] at exactly the same time as Walmart, Kroger, and Walgreens are banning open carry in their stores.

    I would boycott NASCAR, but I stopped watching it back when they came out with the "car of tomorrow".

    I seem to remember that the NRA was sponsoring a NASCAR car at one time. Is this still the case?
