Kurt Amesbury over at Armed females of America is encouraging a consumer boycott directed at John Walsh.

"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."

Not that this is the only reason - apparently Mr. Walsh has made some rather biased shows about guns in the hands of domestic violence victims. I refer you here, here, here & here for more info.

But go to the site urging the boycott. It has simple & quick instructions on how to make your feelings known to Mr. Walsh's sponsors, which is the only hope of changing Mr. Walsh's deceitful practices.
