‘Shopify’ Taking Heat For Targeting Gun Companies. Here’s a Breakdown of What They’re Doing.

Apparently freedom of speech and the right to bear arms are not values Shopify is dedicated to, a truth they have made abundantly clear by recent actions they have taken against gun companies in order to appease the madness of liberal gun haters across the country.

The Canada-based commerce platform, serving close to 600,000 merchants, suddenly shifted its free speech policy which now includes a ban on guns and gun-related products.

Shopify revised their Acceptable Use Policy on Monday to include a sales embargo on certain semi-automatic firearms, unfinished lower receivers, unserialized firearms, magazines capable of accepting more than 10 rounds, and many more products (view the list, here).

In a press release to The Daily Wire, Florida-based gun manufacturer Spike’s Tactical said “the new rules will essentially shut down the sale of guns, gun parts and accessories over the internet by retailers who use Shopify.”

“This decision will have significant ramifications to our business and should concern every online retailer and Second Amendment supporter,” warned Spike’s Tactical GM Cole Leleux.

The company conducts millions of dollars in sales via the platform, annually. “We have invested more than $100,000 in the development of our Shopify store, which will disappear once these policies go into effect,” Leleux said.

Texas-based Rare Breed Firearms was also hit by Shopify’s new dubious policy shift. “We have spent the last three years developing the Rare Breed brand and more than $40,000 developing our Shopify site,” said company president Lawrence DeMonico.

Ironically, Shopify founder and CEO Tobias Lütke has long-praised his company’s commitment to free speech, even if such speech was unpopular and controversial. “We don’t like Breitbart, but products are speech and we are pro free speech. This means protecting the right of organizations to use our platform even if they are unpopular or if we disagree with their premise, as long as they are within the law,” wrote Lütke in a Medium post published in 2017.

Just goes to show that if you know the right areas to apply pressure, folks will quickly cave to the demands of the progressive movement, swiftly and without a second thought.

What really makes this shady is the fact that gun businesses were not informed of any impending changes nor were they notified that such changes may impact their businesses. These individuals have sunk major money into their companies and the Shopify platform and now it’s just gone. With a snap of Thanos’ fingers. Poof. All is turned to dust.

This clearly isn’t ethical. Shopify needs to make this right by restoring the accounts or by reimbursing folks for the revenue lost due in large part to these changes.

Proud American, right here.

He’s right. For once, Joe Biden is right. America is “morally deprived,” he just didn’t mention the people responsible for the decline. Because of far-left policies, this great nation allows women to get away with murder; allows lawbreakers and criminals to become citizens; and hands out “free” money to those unwilling to work. The only problem with Biden’s sentence is that he didn’t use the words “Democrats are” before “morally derived.” Biden blabbered, “I believe we are in a battle for the soul of this nation. And the simple truth is our soul be troubled as long as systemic racism is allowed to persist. We can’t eliminate ‘zimply’ overnight. We can’t ‘eliminateverthing.’ But it’s corrosive, it’s destructive and it’s costly. It costs every American. Not just who felt the sting of racial injustice. We’re not just less of a – We’re not just a nation of morally deprived because of systemic racism. We’re also less prosperous. We’re less successful. We’re less secure.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=33&v=OM6qa7WgFoU&feature=emb_title From Fox News: Biden revealed the federal government will purchase an additional 100 million doses of vaccine each from Pfizer and Moderna as part of its effort to ramp up the unprecedented vaccination drive. Even with the acquisition of more vaccine supplies, Biden warned that distribution will take time and other precautions, such as wearing masks, should remain a priority for Americans. “The brutal truth is, it’s going to take months before we can the majority of Americans vaccinated – months,” Biden said. “In the next few months, masks, not vaccines, are the best defense against COVID-19. Experts say that wearing masks from now just until April would save 50,000 lives that otherwise would pass away if we don’t wear these masks.” Sound off on Joe in the comments section…

Biden: America ‘Has Never Fully Lived Up to the Founding Principles of This Nation’

He just loves America so much.

President Goofy said some pretty silly things about America and the Trump Administration on Tuesday afternoon. Better get used to hearing that. Unfortunately, whether we like it or not – or whether the country can hang on long enough – we’re stuck with Joe and Kamala. These people and their supporters loathe America. It couldn’t be clearer. WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1354147571552440320 https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1354149480367595521 Reaction from Right Scoop: Americans have not bought into a zero sum game and that’s not how America operates. But this is the bizarrely skewed version of America that Democrats want Americans to believe is happening. Which is why they always drag out this tired and very dishonest propaganda. One of the things that makes America great is that everyone in this country has the opportunity to succeed as long as government stays out of the way. It doesn’t matter if someone grows up in poverty or with a silver spoon in their mouth. Just look at Ben Carson as a great example! Joe is attempting to make it clear that he will be the most “progressive” president this country has ever seen. Not good. Not good at all.
