Big tech is attempting to suppress our freedoms in this country by shutting down Parler, banning president Trump, shadow banning popular gun websites, and now shutting down the popular website AR-15.com.
The popular gun website was shut down late yesterday by the domain registrar. A domain registrar is a company that sells domain names. While this will only temporarily shut them down, AR-15.com must be concerned about their servers being shut down by companies like Amazon in the same way they did to Parler.
AR-15.com has issued the following 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.
It remains unclear specifically what content allegedly violated the registrar’s terms of service. However, I am happy to report that we have found a new, First Amendment-friendly site registrar and we have begun the process of transitioning AR15.com to the new registrar.
We expect the switchover to take up to 5 days. During that time, our famous “AR15.com” URL will not be usable. Once the switchover is complete, AR15.com will be fully restored to normal function.
In the meantime, I welcome freedom lovers and firearm enthusiasts to visit us at our temporary URL: www.ar15-backup.com. We will post on the backup site when the normal AR15.com has been completely restored.
