The popular Alabama Open Carry facebook group has been shut down and the website appears to be also. Please join Alabama Gun Rights Facebook group for discussing Alabama Open/Concealed or any other topic you wish.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/Algunrights/

"This group was created for the purpose of general discussion of gun rights in Alabama, second amendment issues and current events. Not affiliated with any political groups or corporations, however you may freely discuss such groups. The intent is a discussion group that can freely express their first amendment rights while discussing their second amendment rights without fear of ban or reprisal. We dont have a political agenda or image to uphold, there are other groups for that. "

If you'd like a place to put Alabama OC news, you're welcome to use my page. Also have a website thats basic but functional. I'm sure I can find a place for y'all.

OK, I understand that.

But what do I do if I do not want to deal with the intrusiveness of FB and the people that play there? I don't want any friends, and I sure don't want to know what your status was/is. If I register for an event I do not want to be bombarded with information about who else has registered or how many total registrations there are. Maybe FB's "going private" has gotten better since I nuked my account there. but from what I'm told there is no iron-clad guarantee.

Yes, life is rough without FB, but until I know I can have an account that will not bring that in when I use it, it's remaining on the verboten list.

stay safe.

FB is similar to my company in that there are all sorts of 'FB internal' metrics/info/analytics that can be used to analyze, segment, predict and market for revenue. Under the FB Terms of Use/End User License Agreement, who knows what is done with that data - all is legal for sale as FB sees fit.

Depending on your trust in the Goodness of Mankind and Wall Street, I can think of all sorts of folks that w/b interested in FB generated Big Data of gun-friendly group members- Democrat party, Soros funded anti-gun activists,, ATF for sure - Correlation of FB gun advocates that a) rsvp to events, b) % show up at events, c) private message stats w other pro-gunners, d) purchase guns/ammo using credit/debit cards, e) credit ratings, f) voting activity and campaign contributions, g) home/family demographics, g) web-browsing history, h) license plate reader/On-Star auto tracking to frequently used locations, j) tax data....

Using FB definitely digitizes your actions and makes it subject to analysis to anyone with money or a subpoena.

Actually the biggest issue I have are Youtube and OCDO believe it or not. Youtube restricts by country and in bypassing that I end up getting the captcha on OCDO because I use proxy servers. Usually rotate between Swiss and Singapore. Either way it can be a pain. Facebook has never deleted a post on my news page and it very well could have. I'm highly controversial and highly dangerous. I actually believe in freedom of speech and the constitution

At this point the domain is invalid and neither the website or the forum are on the internet.

Nor have they been for a few weeks.

Are you talking about the old AL Open Carry, then AL Gun Rights page? The one where eye85 got kicked off (or told to leave or whatever)?

Why did it shut down? I used to be over there as well, but stopped going after I moved to TN and the traffic at ALOC/AGR dropped off to almost nothing.
