Violent Content Before PG Movies

I'm tired of attending PG movies with my young son at your cinemas, only to have the pre-show ads/previews show violent or mature content!
The latest incident happened last weekend. We went to see Fred Claus on opening day and we barraged with a full-length 3 Doors Down video recruiting for the military, complete with guns, injured/dead soldiers and explosions.
If that's not bad enough, an ad of Live Free or Die Hard came on--complete with harrowing scenes, more guns and explosions.
What is UP with you guys?! This has happened on more than on occasion before PG movies! Those of us with young families go to the movies to have a relaxing, enjoyable time--not to be shown images of war, violence, sex scenes, innuendo, and language! If you want to show that stuff before a PG-13 or R movie, fine--but NOT PG movies!
We already boycott one location, intentionally attending the Hollywood Theaters to avoid that location, as well as another location. We are now prepared to forgo Carmike cinemas altogether, even the location referenced.
