β€œIn light of progressive advances in marriage equality and the right to serve our country sweeping across the U.S., we felt this view of life was a story that was not being told with the authenticity and compassion it deserved,” Scott Fraser, president and CEO of Gun Oil, said in a statement announcing the company's first television ad.
