Trader asked Viden why the cable giant is choosing not to show guns used in a safe manner, as in his commercial, while its shows portray guns being used unsafely so often.
“We thought that if you really wanted to show an ad showing the safe handling of a firearm, as opposed to the way most people see it handled on some of the TV shows, it’s not unusual to see people running through the streets shooting at people or running out on their balcony and shooting two shots off in the air, and this type of stuff is not going on in real life with people who handle guns safely,” Viden said.

Vice President Joseph Biden has recently advised people to buy shotguns, and fire warning shots off their balconies, for self-defense. Not only is his advice unsafe, following it could get you charged with a felony.
