Regarding the news story “Comcast bars gun, weapons advertising” (March 27 and TribLIVE.com): This decision by Comcast had little to do with integrity. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, through his Mayors Against Illegal Guns effort, had $12 million to throw at this campaign and basically outspent the gun advertisers.

To find any substance in this thought process, Comcast would have to refuse advertising dollars from alcohol producers by associating them with DUI fatalities.

And by the way, don't ever expect Comcast to accept any responsibility for violent programming that incites the mentally unstable to do unthinkable things.

Guns are inanimate objects. Violence is an emotion. Guns are not capable of committing violence without the human element.

As for gun laws: As with all laws, only the law-abiding will comply.

This was just shameless pandering by Comcast.
