Have you seen the ad yet? It should piss you off as a sportsman and RESPONSIBLE firearms owner. Let's run up the signatures on this one. I'm tacking this on top for a few.

DONE! Made a notation that i'm one of their LOYAL customers.

#2093 Here's what I added in my comments: The petition also failed to mention, possibly for brevity's sake, that without the sportsmen and women, deer and other large herbivores would destroy the forests of America. Without the natural predators, American hunters are the force that keeps the large herbivore populations under control. My own state of Indiana has controlled hunts within State Parks as part of a deer population management effort. I find your advertisement to cater to the yuppy, sniveling crowd of America who are more concerned about offending someone than doing the right thing!

We seem to have their attention: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- here is the reply from daimlerchrysler: Thank you for your comments regarding our 30-second Jeep Grand Cherokee television commercial. We value your opinion and appreciate your willingness to share it with us. As you know, outdoor activities and communing with the environment are both basic to the DNA of the Jeep brand. That is why for many years Jeep has sponsored and supported a wide range of outdoor events and activities. With this in mind, we created the spot to communicate the key attributes of Jeep - off-road capability, ruggedness, safety and security. Because of our innate involvement with nature and outdoor activities, we felt we could use the hunting analogy in a tongue-in-cheek way to highlight the "go anywhere, do anything" capability of Jeep vehicles. Unfortunately, we did not anticipate this story line would evoke such negative emotion among some viewers. That was never intended. We apologize if we inadvertently offended any individual or group. Obviously we underestimated the sensitivity of this issue. Jeep, as the embodiment of the great outdoors, does not want to damage our relationship with any groups or individuals that love, appreciate and enjoy outdoor activities. Nor do we want to damage our relationship with our loyal customers or prospects who reside on either side of this issue. Therefore, because this is so emotionally charged, we will no longer continue this campaign. Again, thank you for sharing your views with us. We hope this clarifies our position. Respectfully, The Jeep Brand A Division of DaimlerChrysler Corporation

Now how about this? A jeep bogging out a muddy-ass road... Climbing up a steep rocky hill... Traversing a fast moving stream... And the owner flopping down a freshly killed, 16 point buck and gutting it. Now thats a commercial I can live with.

#4666. Less hunting = more vehicle-wildlife collisions = more Jeep drivers injured or killed by 60 MPH ungulates... probably not the most thoroughly thought out campaign in the ad cupboard...

#5635 I don't personally hunt, but many of my friends do, and I find the tone of the ad highly offensive. Actually, I do hunt; but only the Two-Legged Spota, it's always in season. [:D]
