If this is not the right place then move it.

Why in hell are we accepting advertisements from Conceal Carry Teachers? We are suppose to be for Open Carry not Conceal Carry. They sure don’t promote us. They actually hate us.

I have not seen the ad to be honest nor know of the organization but many people support both but just lobby for one or the other.

It always amazes me - the search for the mob response to a private matter

The issue is obviously related to the generating of revenue to offset the operation of OCDO. As such, the decision whether or not to continue accepting ads of that sort rests with the owners of OCDO.

Have you taken your concerns to John and Mike? If so, are you at liberty to share their response(s)? If not, why not?

OTOH, you could always choose not to patronize OCDO because their policy runs counter to your values. Seems that's the standard response to retailers who do stuff that some/most/all folks think is anti-gun rights or anti-OC.

stay safe.

Ads on OCDO IIRC follow your browsing history. Seems this discussion came up before by a member offended by a gay ad. He kinda disappeared when it was pointed out to him that he must have visited gay sites. OP you probably visited a CC site, maybe while doing research.

I get the same panel of six ads every time. I don't get the ads that many do, I use firefox and make use of the blockers available for browsing. I assume that the six gun related ads are sponsors of the site. The ads that everybody else gets are probably the google ads based on their search history.
