But in between the plays in the Concussion-Prevention-League’s premiere 2014 event, privately-funded TV commercials touting Second Amendment-insured self-defense of home and country? Not so much:

Daniel Defense recently submitted a commercial to FOX to be played during the 2014 NFL Super Bowl XLVIII. Though the video doesn’t showcase one of the company’s popular DDM4 rifles, this paid advertisement spot was rejected by the NFL.

The commercial, which focuses on themes of personal protection and fundamental rights, was originally created by Daniel Defense to run in any network TV station at any time.

According to a statement from FOX to Daniel Defense, “Unfortunately, we cannot accept your commercial in football/Super Bowl spots due to the rules the NFL itself has set into place for your company’s category.”

The Ad:

Offended? Didn’t think so.

The No-fun League doubles down with the PC Police.
