Amazon banned the sale of a gun book on Wednesday night for an unexplained violation of the company’s rules.
The listing for The Liberator Code Book: An Exercise in Freedom of Speech, which had been available on Amazon since Aug. 1, was removed from Amazon’s website. The web address where the book had previously been listed now redirects to an error page. The web address where a Kindle book titled The Liberator: An .STL File Published as a Book also now redirects to an error page.
Both books had been published through Amazon’s self-publication services. Amazon told the Washington Free Beacon it was banning publication of the books and their sale through their website.
“This book was removed for violating our content guidelines,” Jack Evans, an Amazon spokesperson, told the Free Beacon.

The Nassau County chapter of Moms Demand Action is firing at the Inn at New Hyde Park for planning to hold a National Rifle Association event in September.
Tracy Bacher, a mother of three from Sea Cliff and the head of the local Moms Demand Action chapter, said the activist group is launching a protest campaign after Inn management said it plans to keep the event despite the group’s request to reconsider.
Members are calling and emailing the Inn and the group plans to hold several protests outside the catering hall leading up to the event if it is not canceled, Bacher said.
A representative from the Inn at New Hyde park said the catering hall declined to comment.
“When I got wind of the event I called the events mangers and kind of pleaded with them to reconsider their contract with the NRA, and they declined,” Bacher said in an interview Monday. “They actually said ‘the NRA sounds like a lovely organization.’ That was a direct quote.”
Because the last thing we’d want is to give teachers the ability to protect their students’ lives . . .
Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is reportedly looking to use a legal loophole to allow federal funds to buy guns for teachers — and Democrats appear determined to stop her.
The New York Times reports that the Department of Education is considering using the Student Support and Academic Enrichment Program to circumvent laws that prohibit the use of federal funding to purchase firearms for teachers. The SSAE grants — which are intended to fund the poorest school districts in the country, and calls for school districts to use the money to provide a well-rounded education and improve digital literacy and school conditions — would instead be given to states or districts to use that money toward firearms and firearms training, the outlet said.
In response to the Times report, Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., said he is introducing a “last minute emergency” amendment on Thursday to block the Education Department’s funding bill.
Incoherence, thy name is Alcindor . . .
MSNBC contributor Yamiche Alcindor claimed on Thursday that if teachers are allowed to carry firearms at school they might end up shooting minority students.
Alcindor’s remarks came in response to a report from The New York Times, which claimed that education secretary Betsy DeVos was considering allowing states to use federal funding to purchase firearms for teachers who wanted to carry at school with the goal of helping prevent school shootings.
“Advocates are very worried about the racial impacts this will have,” Alcindor claimed. “If you start arming teachers, there are black and brown students being, who are being disciplined more than their white counterparts, you could then start seeing statistics where potentially black students are getting shot or in accidents when their teachers are trying to shoot or do gun safety measures.”
Tolerance in an atmosphere of intellectual pursuit and higher learning . . .
The professor, citing the anti-gun Giffords Law Center, presented statistics showing the perceived dangers of concealed carry weapon holders, and elaborated on every potential rule that could be broken.
“In keeping with my responsibility to ‘maintain an efficacious learning environment,’ as the Faculty Code requires, I will report all gun violations to KU and state authorities,” Rath continued. “You may be asked to leave campus immediately, and you may be subject to criminal charges as well as University disciplinary processes. In addition, you will be banned from my classroom until KU authorities have certified that you are no longer a danger to yourself and others.”
