Reddit Lays Down The Ban-Hammer On Gun Groups

Swiftly on the heals of YouTube announcing some serious changes in policy concerning gun channels, social media giant, Reddit, just laid down the ban-hammer on a couple different, and very large, gun-related sub Reddits. In all fairness, I do need to say that they didn't supposedly just ban gun-related channels, but any that apparently encompass, and therefore break, these guidelines were also probably banned:

Then again as of this writing, I went to a sex selling channel (for research, wife–please forgive me), and found that it was still intact. It seems to me that sub reddits concerning the sale of sex and other prostitution channels seem healthy at this point in time.

Though, I must admit that I did not visit all of them. Time will tell if Reddit will take those down as per their new policy, or if they will leave them up for folks to engage in whatever shady crap they choose.

Ya know, just as long as guns aren't involved.

Because guns er bad.

MmmKay?

What is even more disturbing to me, is that subs that seemed to be concentrated only on exchanging brass cases and tools were also banned, likely because they were gun-related. I can say, however, that at this time all of the sub-reddits I belong to are still around, and hopefully they stay that way. But, if Reddit pisses off enough of their following, maybe they'll be forced to re-consider their point of view.

Just one of the sub-reddits that got the ban-hammer was made up of about 120,000 people. One thing these companies and social media giants need to understand, is that we are, as a whole, a community of folks who also aren't afraid to stop using a service because they're anti-gun.

Personally speaking, just as I don't shop at Target and the like, I won't be on Reddit anymore even though my Trophy Case shows a four-year club badge. To Reddit I say, fix yourself. Or, we'll fix it for you. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

    Another liberal crybaby, spineless, fake news junk peddler! The leaches that are associated with this loser group are not worth saying much about. This is the first time I have heard of this loser group and now I will never pay any attention to their posts again. I hope you go down as a flash in the pan and never resurface again. That is all for now losers!☠

    My second try. Wish I would have remembered to copy before I submitted. I don’t have the patients to try and post all.that again. I’ll get right to the point. I am so sick and tired of the direction and the corruption of the politics in this country that I’m seriously considered moving to Canada although that’s not the answer. Our country has been manipulated by the left for so long. it’s hard to convince people on the left that they are not looking out for their their best interest. that’s coming from someone on both sides of the fence. little by little they want to take our gun rights away. Their main agenda top of the list. Most todsy are with the right is most of them are not in the middle and conservative as it used to be so now you got a guy like Trump up there who is not perfect in any means at all try to do what’s best for the country but didn’t have any idea the mess he was getting into the corruption the filth it’s all about New World Order controlled by the rich by the money it’s a damn shame that’s why I want to move to Canada and hope for the best I want nothing to do with this country anymore.
