I Was Banned by a Big-Tech Email Provider… and Nobody Knew They Were Censoring!

You Won't Believe Who is Censoring Emails

If you’re new here, my name is Andy Hallinan – or “Andy the Gun Guy” for the many many people who can never pronounce my last name.

I’m the leader of a 2nd Amendment movement across America of like-minded American Patriots who believe in values to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

I’ve armed and trained over 30,000 concealed carriers – and now I devote my life to helping experienced shooters become Certified Firearm Instructors and building their firearm training business.

Every Month, 20,000 Patriots Subscribed to My Movement!

Every month my social media activities generated over 20,000 2nd Amendment-loving patriots who subscribed to receive updates about:

  • legal battles affecting our rights
  • training content to advance their shooting skills
  • and firearm giveaways and content

I am even teamed up with the Gun Owners of America (the only NO-COMPROMISE gun lobby in Washington!) to grow their subscribers. 

You’re here because you’re in the fastest growing 2nd Amendment movement across America.

Then... Disaster Struck in October 2021

It was business as usual.

I logged into my email management system – called Infusionsoft (recently renamed “Keap.”)

I was about to send an email out to all of you.

…but…

…the button to send an email had been disabled.

I got on the phone to Infusionsoft (or Keap) right away.

It took Infusionsoft (Keap) over 3 days to figure out what had happened.

And it’s worse than you think.

Yahoo is Blocking 2nd Amendment Content from Your Inbox!

Infusionsoft/Keap (my email management company) informed me that Yahoo specifically reached out to them directly.

Yahoo sent Infusionsoft (Keap) my email subject line, “Who’s Brandon?” 

In this email, I explained exactly what the “Let’s Go Brandon” phenomenon came from. (You can see the blog post I emailed my subscribers about here.)

My email was sent out to all 130,000 2nd Amendment supporters subscribed to my content. 

Yahoo told Infusionsoft (Keap) that if they didn’t terminate my account, Yahoo would block all incoming emails from Infusionsoft (Keap)’s systems across all their accounts.

And guess what?

Infusionsoft (Keap) Instantly Bowed to the Big-Tech Bully... Complete Betrayal

I was a customer of Infusionsoft (Keap) for 7 years.

Let’s do the math…

I paid $499 per month…

…every month…

…for 7 years.

That’s over $40,000 bucks that I’ve handed them.

They never had a problem with my content before.

Heck, even some of their own staff are subscribed to my email updates!

But none of that mattered to Infusionsoft (Keap.) 

After my account manager (Sean Martin) promised that I was only on a 7 day “time out” (his words, not mine!) I waited for another 5 or 6 days for the final response.

If I wanted to continue to use Infusionsoft, I’d need to spend several thousands of dollars on a third-party company (I have no idea why!) for some service (which I have no idea what they do!)

The betrayal is real.

What Can Be Done Now?

We vote with our wallets.

If you are a customer of Infusionsoft (Keap), it’s time to get off of their platform. I’m now on Active Campaign – which is much more affordable anyway.

If you have a Yahoo Email address – get rid of it immediately.

If you want to support our 2nd Amendment movement, grab some merch right here on this website – because our movement is financially at risk due to this betrayal by Infusionsoft (Keap) and Censorship from Yahoo.

Just had to throw that out there.

Thanks for reading.

Get armed. Get trained. Carry daily.

Long live the Republic!

US Military Courts Rules Bump Stocks are NOT Machine Guns

US Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals has determined in a ruling that bump stocks are not machine guns in the case the United States v. Ali Alkazahg.

In an earlier judgment, Marine Corp Private Ali Akazahg was convicted for the possession of 2 “machine guns” in violation of articles 83, 107, and 134 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).

It was ruled that these “machine guns” owned by Akazahg did not meet the federal definition of the machine gun.

“Bump Stocks Are Not Machine Guns”

The three-judge panel agreed with the arguments made by the defense and unanimously ruled that bump stocks do not meet the definition of a machine gun.

The panel referred to a case that anti-gun activists pressured Congress to act on following the mass shooting in Las Vegas where 60 died. A bill was advanced by Congress, “Closing the Bump Stock Loophole” seeking to treat bump stocks as machine guns.

However, it rightfully failed to pass either chamber of Congress.

I Support Donald Trump, But This is His Fault

In its ruling, the judges pointed out that following the bill’s failure in Congress, there was considerable political pressure on former President Trump to act against bump stocks.

The panel also said that they don’t believe that President Trump had the authority to make de facto law banning bump stocks.

Here’s a quote from the ruling:

[T]he President directed the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives [ATF] to issue a new interpretation of a rule—that contradicted the ATF’s previous interpretation—governing legislation from the 1930s. This Executive-Branch change in statutory interpretation aimed to outlaw bump stocks prospectively, without a change in existing statutes

The judges have looked through the history of bump stocks and came to the conclusion that the ATF never considered bump stocks to be machine guns until Trump directed the bureau to reclassify bump stocks as machine guns.

The panel also inferred to the letter issued to William Akins in 2002 for his “Akins Accelerator” where the original version was used a spring.

Ammo Shortage Hits Law Enforcement

The spike in new gun purchases has led to a shortage of ammunition leading to raging concerns among local police departments and civilians alike.

Several Washington D.C.-area police departments have stated that the supply of ammunition sold by manufacturers and distributors is lingering on scarcity that can lead to problems for agencies buying ammunition for officer training and certification.

The ammunition shortage also creates hurdles and headaches for private gun shops and owners, some of whom report skyrocketing prices.

“I talk to Police departments ranging from federal, state and local departments who tells about their daily struggle in finding ammunition to even qualify officers,” told departments — daily. They are struggling to find ammunition to even qualify the officers,” said Curt Sebastian, co-owner of SSG Tactical gun shop in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

The shortage, he adds has led to a quadruple in the price of some ammunition and drained his supply.  “There will come a point if things keep going the way they are, I don’t and won’t have enough inventory to be open six days a week,” he said.

Sebastian said that a box of ammo traditionally selling for $9 to $14 now costs about $50.

The FBI records assessed by News4 I-Team reveals a surge in new gun purchase background checks coupled with the number of people applying for firearms background jump has leaped by almost 1 million on a monthly average, starting from the pandemic start. This wave of new buyers led to a drain in the ammunition supply, according to Sebastian

He said that 85 percent of his customers have been first-time gun owners together with clients stocking up during the past year as the result of civil unrest, election and the transition of power in DC and you have the perfect storm for a shortage, according to Sebastian.

ATF is the Key to Biden’s Gun Control

Joe Biden nominee – the former ATF agent turned gun control activist – is set to be in charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

The new ATF boss will be appointed in a few weeks while the administration is engaging in what is called “pre-hearing spins” relying on New York Times.

A long piece in the publication describes the agency in charge of our firearms industry as the “whipping boy” for NRA in years past. The NRA has long had a pretty decent history of influence over the agency.

The President ordered a ban on the homemade-firearm kits defined as “ghost guns”, expected to be implemented by the A.T.F. For fleshing out gun policy, Biden has demanded the A.T.F. spearhead the first comprehensive federal survey of weapons-trafficking patterns since 2000.

In all likelihood, it is expected to be shouldered by the nominee, former A.T.F.  agent and gun-control activist, David Chipman.

It was at the N.R.A.’s instigation that Congress limited the bureau’s budget and have limited leeway on collection and usage of gun ownership data.

It is also marked by limited unannounced inspections of gun dealers. It was 15 years back that the N.R.A. successfully lobbied for the director’s appointment subject to Senate confirmation and subsequently helped block all but one nominee from taking office.

Chipman didn’t respond when asked for a comment through an official with Ms. Giffords’s gun-control group. In the event that Congress doesn’t confirm Chipman’s appointment, the other way is for Biden to appoint him as the “acting director” – which would give him limited power and authority.

It is expected that gun owners should lobby their senators to oppose Chipman’s nomination with gun control activities.

One thing The New York Times ignored is that Democrats have offered up multiple candidates that couldn’t pass the floor with a majority of the US Senate.

In 2020, President Obama Barack Obama nominated A.T.F. agent Andrew Traver as the permanent director but failed to receive a vote because several senators spoke out over Traver’s anti-gun attitudes. The second nominee, B. Todd Jones was ultimately confirmed but remained in office for less than two years, retired in 2015 and took a job with the NFL.

Chipman boasts 25 years at the A.T.F.  while spending nearly a decade with gun control groups such as Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Giffords. The New York Times stated that Chipman may not get the votes for confirmation.

Former top N.R.A  official says:

The Chipman pick “is poking people in the eye. I think the president would be better served by appointing a more apolitical person and building more bridges to bipartisanship.

Pastor Artur Pawlowski Arrested After Holding “Illegal” Church Service

Following the holding of an “illegal” church service on Saturday, police surrounded and arrested the Pastor of the Cave of Adullam Church in Calgary, Alberta, Canada named Artur Pawlowski.

He was described as the brave pastor who shouted down cops who interrupted his church service during Holy Week.

He yelled to cops: “Out of this property you Nazis! Gestapo is not allowed here! Out, Nazi! Out! Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back here you Nazi psychopaths!” Pawlowski kicked out the Gestapo this weekend. Adam Soos of @RebelNewsOnline tweeted: “Artur Pawlowski’s supporters have ejected Calgary Police from the church. We expect they will return in force.”

Pawlowski’s fellow pastor Henry Hildebrandt posted the picture of the suspect being arrested by the Canadian Gestapo.

He told: “Earlier this afternoon, my fellow pastor Artur Pawlowski was arrested in Calgary for the crime of holding a church service, as he does every Saturday morning. Are you awake yet? The Gestapo in Canada has been gunning for Pastor Pawlowski ever since and they arrested him this weekend.”

DOJ Reveals Proposed New Rules Targeting Ghost Guns

In a new proposed rule late on Friday, the Biden administration is seeking to impose new restrictions on home-built firearms and aiming to redefine the “receiver”.

The latter strives to deliver the first new rules in what is expected to be a barrage of anti-gun regulations aimed at restricting the firearms industry and law-abiding gun owners.

A press release by the Department of Justice, Attorney General Merrick Garland spins the new proposal as an attempt to “update the definitions of ‘firearm’ and related parts for the first time since 1968.”

Attorney General Garland neglected to mention that the definitions that will be changed were part of the Gun Control Act of 1968; legislation passed by Congress – not imposed by executive action.

The new rules would require that manufacturers include a serial number on the firearm “frame or receiver” in easy-to-build firearm kits.

Moreover, it aims to cut the number of “ghost guns on streets” while setting out requirements for federally licensed firearms dealers to have a serial number added to 3D printed guns or other un-serialized firearms they take into inventory.

Even unfinished frames and receivers need to be serialized if they are sold as part of a kit,, though the Department of Justice (DOJ) has kept silent on whether or not the unfinished gun parts must be serialized if they are sold by themselves.

“These courts’ interpretation of ATF’s regulations, if broadly followed, could mean that as many as 90 percent of all firearms now in the United States would not have an identifiable frame or receiver,” the document said. “Those firearms would include numerous widely available models, such as Glock-type and Sig Sauer P32013 pistols, that do not utilize a hammer – a named component – in the firing sequence.”

The ATF spoke on the necessity to revise the definition of a receiver in ensuring it won’t “be misinterpreted by the courts, the firearms industry, or the public at large to mean that most firearms in circulation have no part identifiable as a frame or receiver.”

The proposed receiver definition calls on the need for one fire control component – such as a trigger mechanism, cylinder, or firing pin – instead of requiring multiple parts as the current definition does.

The ATF announced plans to keep in place the determinations on which specific parts would qualify as receivers for guns currently on the market and create a voluntary process for gun makers to submit new designs for determinations.

On the other hand, courts are not lending a misinterpretation to the ATF’s regulations and remain correct in the definition of what constitutes a firearm. Now, the DOJ wants to declare the words “frame” and “receiver” now mean something entirely different than what they’ve meant since 1968.

One reason as to why the ATF and DOJ didn’t make an effort to update the definitions before now is considered as a real stretch in coming up with something which isn’t a receiver and suddenly reversing 50 years of existing regulations.

Lawrence G. Keane, senior vice president and general counsel of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, says that the firearms industry trade group will “carefully look at the proposed rule and will gather input from our members. The details will matter. We are fully aware of the impact that this proposed rule could have on the firearm industry and gun owners in general. We are interested to know if the proposed rule is consistent with what we saw in the leaked draft documents or if it has changed and what those changes might be. NSSF will file comments concerning the rule.”

The proposed rule is expected to wait for the 90-day public comment phase and once it is published at the Public Register website, comments would be made.

In the past, there has been overwhelming opposition that helped stop a bad draft from turning into a bad reputation. However, it is expected that Biden is prepared to move ahead, irrespective of the public feedback.
