We must stop glamorizing gun violence. Amazon is placing ads on boxes, where families cannot prevent the ad's arrival to their home.

Stop advertising violent video games on shipping boxes.

      I am appalled at the printed advertising on the North Las Vegas Amazon Fulfillment Services' box: "ASSASSINS CREED". For months I have received this same order in a smaller box. This time, the box is taller, apparently in order to accommodate the ad. This video game is offensive to me. The title you have chosen to promote glamorizes violence and I am disgusted by your choice. Your mass production of this message makes you an active agent in the dulling of our senses toward violence. This is particularly offensive in a season of wishing the world to have peace. Your boxes come into homes, where persons of all ages, who did not place the order, will see it. That is unfair targeting of children. Please do not ever again choose box advertising that promotes even pretend violence. Your response?

    3. Great guide for direct contact!!

      Change.org has an extensive tutorial for how to go about focusing this message, and how to plan for direct contact. I'm still looking for how to contact a Director on the Board, Patricia Q. Stonesifer, who I think would listen deeply.

      I'm joining because this is hilarious to watch. Don't you people have anything bettet to do? Now I'm going to go support Skullgirls, which is both violent and sexual. Quit fighting progress and teach your kids about the dangers of violence yourselves. Why make the rest of us change our lives? Selfish bastards.

      This is bad idea, because i lives where plenty of ghettos nearby. they able to see easily when the delivery man carries with a box showing some violent games.. it would never know they break in my home at other day. this is much ridiculous. i am gonna signed up seriously.

      I hate supporting this but the only reason I am is because the game shouldn't be advertised on a box of all things. But I will say this, you aren't ever going to be able to change the fact that you and your kids will always be exposed to violent games. It's not like a logo is going to make you know that there is violence on the game. Obviously you knew that the game was violent before ever receiving the package. So you had already had exposure to the video game commercial. But just for a logo you wouldn't know whether the game was violent or not.
