The de-platforming, shadow-banning and outright censorship of gun-related manufacturers, retailers and content creators picked up steam after Parkland and continues to this day. The latest service provider to kick gun customers to the curb is Shopify, a Canadian eCommerce platform that dumped names you know like Spike’s Tactical, Franklin Armory and many more. Because free speech is just too hard, or something.
Many commenters here have opined that what we need are our own gun-friendly platforms, businesses that won’t kowtow to David Hogg’s latest whim or a coordinated tweetstorm of criticism from Shannon Watts and the rest of the Civilian Disarmament Industrial Complex.
Enter 2A Design. The Texas-based web design firm has just announced the creation of its very own privately hosted eCommerce platform that is of, by and for the People of the Gun. Here’s their press release:
