Snow blower not getting gas

I purchased a Craftsman snow blower (model 247.88787) last year (November 2011) and never used it. I put gas in it recently and tried to start it for the first time. It appears that it is not getting gas to the carburetor. I am wondering if there is a gas shutoff somewhere?

Mark, thanks for the reply. As far as I know, there has never been gasoline in the engine, unless they run the snowblower as part of the manufacturing process. It was purchase new a year ago, and because we had no snow last winter, it sat until this year before I added gasoline for the first time. It seems that the primer is not pushing gas to the carb, but I can't say for sure. Will I void my warranty or the additional service contract I purchased if I follow your recommendation to pour gas in the carb?
