    Just got this fron grnc.

    As you may be aware WRAL published an article that upset many of our customers and members of our community. The people affected were those like me; strong believers in our US Constitution and our 2nd amendment rights. Somehow I wound up in the crosshairs of this firestorm, and that’s not a problem. Now I can take action.

    Of the hundreds of advertisers with WRAL, some blogger or bloggers instructed it’s readers to contact me and only me, to let me know that my ad dollars were funding WRAL’s attack on North Carolina gun owners and their rights. I don’t disagree with that sentiment, plus there are many more merchants that spend much more to advertize on WRAL than me so I’m sure these bloggers are not done with their work.

    As for me and my company, I’m a concerned citizen and strong believer in our constitutional rights. I have made contact with WRAL and I have instructed them to remove anything that bears the Chris Leith name. At this point they have chosen not to pull the article and therefore I have severed ties with them. I really hate that this situation has occurred and I hope my actions will speak louder than words.

    God Bless America - Chris Leith

    Yeah. That's great. And his company purchases products from my company. I think a letter of thanks is in order.

    I just sent this to Mr. Leith...words can't explain how happy I am with this man...sometimes all it takes is someone like this to start something good.....

    Mr. Leith...I wanted to applaud your actions re: WRAL and their posting of the CWP list...we need so many more people of your stature in the community that will actually stand behind their beliefs. The next time I am in the market for a vehicle I will at the very least look at your locations first.
    Thank you again sir; I am proud to have you as a North Carolina neighbor and business man.

    Awesome...Wish more people would stand for their rights...especially the second. Without the second, the others would surely be lost. Great ideal Baileydale!

    Can someone put together a list of the companies that advertise on WRAL??? That way everyone can contact the companies and inform them that they will not buy their products, use their services, etc, as long as they advertise there.

    A problem with when a news outlet did this before, was they inadvertently posted the names and in their case the addresses of various city officials, judges and LEO's who were also CCW holders.
