Illegal Mayors

Looks like they’ve got themselves a commercial set to air during the Superbowl:

Also, they’re trying to boycott gun makers who don’t get in line, which is weird because who would arm their police officers?

    Wait, shouldn’t those kids be suspended from school for being in a commercial that was about guns? Zero tolerance!

  2. Drake Says:

    The talks of boycott are quite humorous. “Play ball or we won’t outfit our officers with your product.” Shows how out of touch they are, since those purchases pale compared to civilian sales over the last several years…heck the last month alone has been immense in terms of sales on just about everything–including new NRA members. There was a letter in the News Sentinel just last week where the writer(another so-called supporter of common sense) recommended people write or call gun manufacturers to complain. Sales speak louder than the anti-gunners pathetic boycott tactics.

    This runs into a big problem of boycotts.

    To effectively boycott an organization you have to have been a customer.

    But this does show that MAIG is flush with money and can push to keep its ads running. Gotta use those tap shoes before the blood dries fully.

    Two can play the boycott game.

    Stop selling to cop shops. If they need to replace a broken pistol, they can go shake down criminals for stolen guns.

    Kristopher, or their armorer can just hike down to the local gun show and hope he isn’t recognized.

    Often times sales to law enforcement agencies are a “loss leader” for the manufacturer. They make all sorts of deals including reduced prices, trade in credits, etc. The whole point being to influence the civilian market. How many times do we see advertisements centered on that particular manufacturers products being used by the listed departments, as well as press releases whenever a contract is awarded. The loss of business from these few cities wouldn’t have a great affect on the bottom line directly, but could lessen their efforts to influence the civilian market, who purchases far exceed the LE sector. With proper handling of that situation, the manufacturers should see little, if any aggregate losses.

    Good to see them wasting all the money they can.

    Didn’t they claim to have a super bowl ad a couple of years ago, but in reality it was a local market ad?

    “The loss of business from these few cities wouldn’t have a great affect on the bottom line directly, but could lessen their efforts to influence the civilian market…”

    In this particular case, I suspect a couple of ads saying “Chicago said they’d stop buying our guns unless we supported efforts to disarm the average citizen. We told them to pound sand” would more than undo any such damage.

    wizardpc: This one was local too, apparently. Didn’t see it here in Vegas.

    To MAIG, a local NYC and DC buy is their national audience, and therein lies their problem.
