Gun Banners Want Guns Off TV

From Bearing Arms:

I suppose we should be thankful when anti-gun activists come up with a proposal that doesn’t directly infringe on our right to keep and bear arms, but I still can’t get behind the not-so-bright idea from a couple of higher ups at the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania. Research director Dan Romer and Patrick E. Jamieson, who’s the head of the center’s Annenberg Health and Risk Communication Institute say it’s time to reduce shootings by “giving guns on TV the cigarette treatment,” claiming that one way to reduce demand for firearms is to stop showcasing them on television.

Emergency Alert Message Was Sent To U-Verse TV Subscribers

From Fox 5 Atlanta:

The message, claiming to be an emergency alert issued by The White House, notified viewers that their programming was being re-directed to another channel. The alert is part of the EAN or Emergency Alert Notification. Engineers with FOX 5 say the alert can only be activated by the President in times of emergency.

How was the signal sent out if it is only supposed to be activated by order of the president?
