Instagram Bans Photo of Gun Activists at Shooting Range
Social media platform Instagram is reportedly blurring out images of women at gun ranges, claiming the photos violate “violence or dangerous organization guidelines.”
A picture was originally posted showing two pro-Second Amendment commentators Kaitlin Bennett and Millie Weaver shooting firearms at a gun range.
Instagram then instantly banned and removed the image, claiming it violated their violence or dangerous organizations policy.
This photo only shows two liberty-loving women exercising their right to bear arms. But for Silicon Valley censors, that is not enough.
We’re in a time where the Executive branch is considering a partnership with Big Tech to engage in Minority Report style pre-crime enforcement on social media.
With how polarized the political environment has become, such moves are the next phase in the multi-front war against the Second Amendment.
Since every aspect of American culture is practically fair game for busybody politicians and their activist shock troops, social media will be the next place anti-gun organizations channel their pressure into.
For gun owners, there may be very few spaces to congregate in online should these trends continue.
