Joe Biden is only days away from becoming President of the United States.
That’s bad news for Second Amendment advocates.
Now gun control activists just made one shocking move to silence pro-Second Amendment Americans.
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have a track record of being terrible on the issue of gun rights.
Harris even said she would ban “assault” rifles by executive order within 100 days if she were President.
Biden and Harris could represent the most anti-gun administration in history.
And now Big Tech is helping them by deplatforming the website AR15.com, the largest gun forum on the Internet.
Website host GoDaddy summarily pulled service from AR15.com without any cause.
ARFCOM Is Down. We've been booted from GoDaddy and are looking for an alternative solution.
The site will return athttps://www.ar15-backup.com

Juan Avila, President and Co-founder of AR15.com, said in a statement:
“On Monday, January 11, 2021, I received notice from our site registrar that AR15.com had violated their terms of service and that AR15.com would be shut down immediately . . . The registrar’s decision to de-platform AR15.com was final and no method to appeal was offered.”
According to GoDaddy, “the forum both promotes and encourages violence,” but did not offer any examples of inappropriate content.
This is yet another escalation in the culture war.
Big Tech did the bidding of the Left by simultaneously banning Donald Trump from every major social platform, and Twitter rival Parler was taken out by tech giants Apple, Google, and Amazon.
The Left is shamelessly going after all of their top targets.
Chipping away at gun rights and gun culture more broadly has long been a pet project of the Left.
Disarming the population is one of the first moves made by authoritarian regimes.
Democrats are now realizing that they can bully companies to do what they haven’t been able to do legislatively.
Now that Big Tech has essentially merged with the state, the combination poses arguably the greatest threat to American freedom.
A culture of free speech must be maintained, or else we’ll eventually lose all of our other rights.
