Salt Lake City’s NBC affiliate, which is operated by the Mormon Church-owned company Deseret Digital Media, announced last night that it would temporarily stop listing classified ads for gun sales. According to a statement published on the website,

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.
