Muni Admits Ban on Ads 'Promoting Use of Firearms' May Be Illegal

Earlier this week, we reported on Muni pulling an about-face regarding ads advocating gun use — faster than a speeding bullet.

While the transit agency edited the guns out of ads for the cop comedy The Other Guys due to policies forbidding billboards that “appear to promote the use of firearms,” it subsequently accepted the Second Amendment Foundation's ads hyping a forthcoming gun-rights conference. These ads depict a shotgun-toting woman and the phrase “Can you afford to be unarmed?”

Clearly, this “promotes the use of firearms.” So what gives?
