Friends of The Gun Wire: GUNDISTRICT.COM LAUNCHES TO UNPRECEDENTED GROWTH: Gun Friendly Social Network
March 16, 2015 (Lake Charles, LA) – GunDistrict.com™, the groundbreaking new social community established specifically for firearms and outdoor enthusiasts, proudly announces unprecedented support from the industry and enormous growth amongst visitors since its recent launch.
The seeds of GunDistrict.com were planted when gun control proponents struck at the gun industry by limiting their freedom through social media and search engine restrictions. “When the web’s largest social media community, Facebook, began denying manufacturers the right to promote their products, we were paying attention,” states Paul Glasco, president and founder of Legally Armed America™ and GunDistrict.com.
The Google search engine was next to strike against the gun industry by banning complete results relating to firearms and other products they didn’t deem “family safe,” according to Glasco. “Initially, gun-related products appeared with all other products in search results on the shopping section of Google, but that changed in 2013. With many of the more than 80 million gun owners in America using Google as a shopping tool, the restrictions of the search engine giant had a huge negative impact on searches for gun-related products at a time when many Americans were exploring,” he said.
At Legally Armed America, they watched and listened as freedom was interfered with, “and began work on a rival social media community to Facebook that would openly welcome legitimate gun, ammo and accessory sales while at the same time encourage the much neglected gun-related interaction and conversation, missing from the traditional outlets,” stated Glasco.
“GunDistrict.com was born as a place for responsible gun enthusiasts to share the same things online that all other Americans freely enjoy relating to their interests, friends and jobs, without being harassed or discriminated against,” Glasco said. “We can guarantee autonomy because we manage it ourselves under the Legally Armed America umbrella. As our Second Amendment rights come under more scrutiny and are increasingly threatened, its important that we all stay informed and united as a group, and that’s where GunDistrict.com plays an important role.”
“While we expected the firearms industry to embrace GunDistrict.com, we didn’t anticipate the explosion of interest from gun and outdoor enthusiasts all over the world that we’ve already enjoyed,” says Glasco. “Growth is averaging XXXXX unique visitors per day with a XXX percent increase in membership in the past week alone.”
According to Glasco, GunDistrict.com is unique as it encourages guns, ammo, accessories and other related products, services and events to be advertised and discussed openly. Mobile apps are in development for iOs and Android formats and are expected soon.
