How You Can Stop the John Walsh Anti-Gun Propaganda Machine!
by Kurt Amesbury, JD
John Walsh Does it Again!
I don't watch the John Walsh show since he did his hatchet job on women who use guns to protect themselves. But as I flipped through the channels today, I saw a brief mention of the word "guns" on the Walsh Show and just had time to see a text blurb at the bottom of the screen claiming, "almost 40,000 people a year are killed by guns."
Of course, this is another lie.
According to the CDC's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, the number of people who died from firearms-related injuries in the last reported year was 28,663.
Of those, 16,586 (57%+) were suicides.
Now, if you haven't figured it out by now, John Walsh isn't against guns per se. He's just against the peasants (that's you and me) having firearms. That's right, the very people he relies upon to buy his sponsor's products to support his show are the ones he wants to turn into disarmed victims.
Well, I've had enough of his condescension.
Since Walsh won't likely be offering equal time to those wishing to correct his errors, the only way we can correct his behaviour is to put pressure on his purse.
I urge you to take a few minutes to contact the following advertisers and let them know that until Walsh sets the record straight, you will NOT be buying any more of their products. This is process is FAST, SIMPLE and EFFECTIVE.
Write your letter. Don't mention the product by name. DO mention that you are a gun owner, that you are offended by John Walsh's lies and until he cleans up his act, you won't be buying any more products advertised by his sponsors.
Click on each link below. In most cases you'll be taken to a page that asks for some basic information. Fill them out and paste your letter where appropriate. Some links will open a new email page. Just fill in the subject line, paste your letter and send it. If the company is followed by a phone number, make the (toll free) call. This will take the most time, but could have the most impact. You can read your letter over the phone - or just tell them you don't appreciate Walsh lying about guns and you won't be buying their product as long as they sponsor someone who lies to undermine your right to bear arms.
Repeat for each link.
There's a sample letter at the bottom of this page. You can use it as a guide. I ran this entire list and it took just 20 minutes - including taking time to make corrections to the HTML code and to track down a couple addressing errors. You can probably do it in under 10 minutes. What I found out by calling the toll free numbers is that the people DO take your complaints seriously. And it's their dime. Make the call!
Now: Are your guns worth 10 minutes of your time? If so, what's your excuse? Send the emails, make the calls. Protect your right to bear arms.

The John Walsh is turning people away from your products. The show has repeatedly lied about firearms. Firearms owners (like myself) are sick and tired of shows that lie about gun usage, but the only leverage we have is to refuse to buy the products of sponsors who support shows that falsify information.
That's why I won't be buying any more of your products until Walsh apologizes and sets the record straight. I will encourage my friends to boycott your products as well.
