Default Major League Baseball Antigun

Have any of you heard about the Houston Astros wanting to wear some throwback jerseys for 2 games this year from back when their team was called the Colt .45s? The jersey has a picture of a revolver on the front with a whisp of gunsmoke out the barrel forming the "C" in Colt. The powers that be have determined that revolver to be offensive and will not allow the team to wear the jersey, so the team has made a jersey which omits the revolver, it looks stupid, a whisp of smoke with no revolver. I won't be following any MLB or buying anything licensed by them, Americas passtime doesn't support America's freedoms.

Yeah, gotta take the PC road at all costs I guess. They re-named the Tampa Bay Devil Rays to just the "Rays" cuz we all know how offensive the name of a fish can be...

You'd better stop watching Fox, then, because Fox Sports disallows UFC fighters from having any gun or ammo sponsors on their shorts or banners. This is a Fox Sports initiative and that was never the case when the UFC was on Spike.

Yes, but it is ALL of Fox, not just Fox Sports. It just got attention when the UFC made the move to Fox since fighters who were previously sponsored by AmmoToGo and the likes now lose those sponsors.

But on the bright side, since they also have a provision regarding "sexually explicit" you no longer have to see adds for CondoDepot on fighters' asses! Seriously, you couldn't pay me enough to have CondomDepot on my ass!

Ain't got time for ball games or professional ball players. If they couldn't play ball most of them would be burning burgers or on welfare.

Major League Baseball has reversed it's decision, they are allowing the gun jersey, they are letting the team make the decision.
