Oliver lampooned many of NRATV's shows, including "Love at First Shot", a show produced by NRATV's sub-brand NRA Women that features gun experts showing women who have never shot guns before how to do so. The question came up this past week as Hollywood activists launched a campaign to pressure Amazon to drop the National Rifle Association's online video channel from its streaming service, which also is available on Apple TV and Roku.

If recent headlines got you to wondering, "What exactly is on NRA TV anyway?", John Oliver is here with a handy tutorial.

"Girl, you don't even need a gun because people are going to die when they see that bag", Oliver quipped.

"So when someone inevitably asks why you have what appears to be a blank canvas with a large bloodstain hanging up in your child's nursery, you'll be able to completely reassure them by saying, 'Oh yeah, my friend shot that for me, '" Oliver said. He particularly highlighted the network's transparent play for women, because, as one woman very plainly put it in one of NRA's programs, "If you get the woman, you get the family".

Oliver went on to say,"The whole point here is, the answer to the question, 'What the f**k is NRA TV?' is, it's just a vessel to sell America guns. That's pretty much it", he said. "Think about it this way: If the NRA is a ferocious bear charging at you, NRATV is that bear's ridiculous hat. Probably not. Because the real truth here is, hat or no hat, it is imperative that everyone keep their eyes on that f****** bear".
