Joe Biden once promised that fellow Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke, who famously threatened to send cops out to confiscate certain weapons, would be his point person on gun control if elected.
It seems that agenda has been launched, even before Biden’s inauguration.
The Federalist reports AR15.com, the largest gun forum, has been shut down by the web hosting company GoDaddy.

“We’ve been booted from GoDaddy and are looking for an alternative solution,” the organization said Monday.
GoDaddy said AR15.com violated “terms of service.”
The move aligns with Biden’s vow to put new limits on firearms, and, as demonstrated by his praise for O’Rourke, advocate confiscation.
During the primary campaign, Biden, with his arm around O’Rourke, said: “I’m gonna guarantee you this is not the last you’ve seen of this guy. You’re going to take care of the gun problem with me. You’re gonna to be the one who leads this effort.
“I’m counting on you. I’m counting on you. We need you badly, the state needs you, the country needs you,” Biden said. “Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
GoDaddy told the Federalist the AR15 site “both promotes and encourages violence.” But it provided no examples.
Officials said the site already had found a new home, and the transition would take a few days.
Meanwhile, the Second Amendment Foundation’s executive vice president, Alan Gottlieb, noted Biden’s vow to “defeat the NRA,” which he called a threat to every gun owner.
“Joe Biden has labored relentlessly for decades to reduce the Second Amendment to rubble,” Gottlieb said. “He may attack one group by name, but his goal is to crush the rights of every gun owner in our country.
