Remove NRA TV from Amazon's Streaming Service & Website

My oldest friend (for nearly 20 years) has a son who attends Marjory Stoneman Douglas and was there last week, huddling and hiding for his life. For 30 anxious minutes, we knew there was a school shooting but has no word on his safety. We learned he was okay fairly quickly, but too many others weren't so lucky.
After seeing 17 young people lose their lives, I was angered to see the defensive reaction from the National Rifle Association - and upset when I saw that Amazon hosts NRAtv, a channel with the slogan “America’s Most Patriotic Team on a Mission to Take Back The Truth."
It’s a 24-hour streaming service with 22 original series that promote the NRA's propaganda, and there’s even an entire segment devoted to how it should be easier to purchase an AR15.
Amazon needs to remove NRAtv.com from their services, sites and offerings immediately. The NRA has long ignored its role in promoting gun violence and betrayed the names of good and responsible gun owners. It’s time to hold it, and its partners, accountable.
The NRA represents millions of gun owners BUT nowhere near all or a majority of U.S. gun owners. In fact, less than 10 percent of gun owners belong to the NRA. We need to include gun owners in this fight - responsible people who don't feel that the NRA speaks for them - so let's keep this fight focused. The NRA is a group that's rotten to the core and a company like Amazon should not be spreading its message. Not anymore.
We must remember to respect the First Amendment above all else. If NRA members want to watch NRA TV, they can find it without Amazon's promotion. There is no place in your home for brands that earn money through the NRA.
Sign this petition, then flood Amazon's Legal Department with calls at 206-266-4064. We already shook up their PR Department and got their long-running media hotline to temporarily shut down (206-266-7180), although it’s still worth a try during business hours, since they’ll likely put it back up again at some point.
