    Gotta love cencorship...

    Im sure the fine :whistling: Mayor here in PHX had a lot to do with it.

    Love how its a "un named member of the DA office". They know this city's pro 2A crowd would have that persons career on a plate if they knew who it was.

    I'm seeing the SCOTUS decide this one. The 9th will uphold, and then the SCOTUS overturn both the 9th and the original decision.

    They are actually advertisement signs for local handgun safety/CCW instructors.

    Just looking at the sign, my immediate thought is this is a public service and message provided by the State of Arizona. I can see why it would be a good idea to modify the sign to be more commercial in nature.

    Also, for the record, the story indicates that it was a deputy city attorney, not an ADA.

    Easy solution since they do allow the advertising of products or services, simply replace the signs with the following:

    =========================

    GUNS SAVE LIVES AND MACHINE GUNS SAVE MORE LIVES !!

    Visit US Autoweapons in Scottsdale and order yours now !!

    =========================

    Change the ad to say "Buy Guns at XXXX, They Will Save Your Lives".

    Easy peasy. Don't make it sound like a public service announcement.

    Ok, so the city says the sign is a PSA. Take said sign and ask the TV stations to run it as a PSA in 15 second ads with some narration (even if it's just reading the text on the sign.
