Controversy has erupted online over the Wounded Warrior Project not wanting to appear on Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk radio show because they don’t want anything to do with firearms. This must be a new policy because they co-branded the AAC Big Bang Party party I attended in 2010.
According to their PR person Leslie Coleman …
WWP does not co-brand, create cause marketing campaigns or receive a percentage or a portion of proceeds from companies in which the product or message is sexual, political or religious in nature, or from alcohol or firearms companies.
Our position regarding firearms and alcohol is in response to the struggles that many injured service members face with substance abuse and suicide and the roles those items often play in those issues.
Guns are one of my two addictions (caffeine being the other).
