One of the largest gun forums was temporarily shut down after the web hosting service GoDaddy removed the site and said it violated the company’s terms of service. AR15.com announced that they had been removed on Monday,
“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,” Juan Avila, president and co-founder of AR15.com, said in a statement posted to the site’s official Instagram account. “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,” Avila continued.
GoDaddy told The Federalist that the decision to remove AR15.com was made after it was determined the site “both promotes and encourages violence.” They wouldn’t provide any examples to support the claim and gave the gun website 25 hours to relocate.
The move from GoDaddy comes on the heels of a series of bans from big tech companies like Amazon, Google, Apple, Twitter and Facebook, who banned President Donald Trump from a number of social media platforms last week.
…all Marines must memorize the “Rifleman’s Creed,” which was created in 1942 by Marine Brigadier General William H. Rupertus, the then-Commanding General of Marine Corps Base San Diego, after he (Rupertus) had decided that his men must be made to understand, “…that the only weapon which stands between them and Death is the rifle…they must understand that their rifle is their life…it must become a creed with them.”
This is my rifle… Without my rifle I am useless… My rifle is human… My rifle and myself are the defenders of my country… We are the masters of our enemy… So be it, until victory is America’s and there is no enemy, but Peace.
