Salt Lake City’s KSL Suspends Online Gun Ads

KSL, the NBC affiliate in Salt Lake City, has announced a suspension of firearms listings on the classified section of its website as the “broader societal issues” of guns are examined in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. KSL posted a statement online:

Like everyone else in the country, the management of KSL is profoundly saddened by the tragedy in Connecticut. In the wake of this and other similar incidents, important questions have been raised about the ease of access to guns. These questions deserve time for careful consideration and we are confident that an appropriate resolution will be found. Accordingly, KSL has temporarily suspended firearms listings on KSL.com classifieds. We recognize that this may inconvenience responsible citizens who have used this service, but we feel this is an important step while these broader societal issues are examined.

KSL is owned by Bonneville International Corporation, which is in turn owned by the Church of Jesus Chris of Latter Day Saints. [h/t The Huffington Post]
