Comcast Spotlight, the advertising and sales division for Comcast Cable, has halted all ads having to do with guns on its nationwide network.
“Comcast Spotlight has decided it will not accept new advertising for firearms or weapons moving forward,” the company said in a statement.
“This policy aligns us with the guidelines in place at many media organizations.”
This month, Comcast acquired NBC Universal in a $16.7 billion deal reported by Media Decoder.
NBC Universal had a longstanding policy against accepting advertisements related to guns, according to a report from an ABC affiliate in Michigan.
