Remember how Shopify thought, “Wow, if we want to help the Left accomplish their mission of banning guns, all we have to do is not let people post firearm-related items on our site. After all, we’re the greatest thing since sliced bread and no one would ever think of competing with us. So we’ll effectively stop the sale of guns.”
Well, guess what, Shopify? You’re not the unconquerable behemoth you thought you were. Gearfire and AmmoReady have come to the aid of law-abiding gun owners in terms of providing them with an outlet to do exactly what you used to do. How’s that for evidence that your sanctimonious plans have failed miserably? So much for banning the online sale of guns.
And those sites are probably quite happy to have the business you so smugly wrote off.
AmmoReady, which was intended to be an online ammunition subscription service, has since evolved into an online opportunity for smaller manufacturers of firearms and accessories to offer their wares.
Gearfire has been around for about six years, and it was apparently in a good position to absorb the business from the firearm industry that Shopify kicked to the curb. It now hosts e-commerce domains for more than 1,800 entities.
Law-abiding gun owners have seen a similar dynamic happening with respect to YouTube’s decision to block content that pertains to legitimate firearm purposes. Though far from being the default online video site that YouTube is, outdoorsportsvideo.com has since emerged to provide an outlet for gun owners.
The message is pretty clear. The anti-gunners can come up with whatever plan they can conceive to keep us down, but Second Amendment fans have the ingenuity and commitment to make sure our voices are heard and our needs are filled regardless.
