> Dear Tena,
> For at least two years, online retailer Amazon has been infamously --
>and incorrectly -- touting its "right" to sell materials promoting illegal
>animal fighting, blatantly peddling dogfighting videos as well as
>cockfighting magazines like The Gamecock and The Feathered Warrior. These
>materials are not only offensive because of the cruelty they glorify, but
>their shipment is also a felony under the recently-enacted Animal Fighting
>Prohibition Enforcement Act. The company's decision to defy the new federal
>law against the reprehensible practices of dogfighting and cockfighting is
> Amazon is falsely claiming its commercial sale of animal fighting
>publications is protected by the First Amendment. But these cockfighting
>magazines are selling fighting birds and cockfighting weapons, and those
>activities are explicitly outlawed under the new federal law! Amazon even
>says it is within its rights to sell dogfighting videos -- a practice
>forbidden under two separate federal laws. The First Amendment does not
>protect companies from selling illegal contraband, and that's exactly what
>Amazon is doing.
> Dogs and chickens suffer grievous injuries in animal fights produced for
>depraved fun and shameful profit. Even if you have previously contacted the
>company, please ask Amazon right now to stop selling animal fighting
>materials. And let your friends and family know how they can help, too.
> Thank you for all you do for animals.
