(KFTK) — The National Rifle Association has shut down production of its TV service, according to the New York Times.

Apparently, they've also split with Ackerman McQueen, the advertising firm that operates the NRA’s broadcasting media arm. 

“Many members expressed concern about the messaging on NRATV becoming too far removed from our core mission: defending the Second Amendment,” Wayne LaPierre, the N.R.A.’s longtime chief executive, wrote in a message to members that was expected to be sent out by Wednesday, according to the Times. “So, after careful consideration, I am announcing that starting today, we are undergoing a significant change in our communications strategy. We are no longer airing ‘live TV’ programming.”

NRATV may continue to air past broadcasts, but it's live programming and on-air personalities, including Dana Loesch, have been suspended.
