Apple and Google violating anti trust laws for anti gun reasons?

A gun auction site has an app on iPhone and Android

Suddenly both platforms block bidding on the apps, making them useless

Obviously this was done because Google and Apple hate guns. But it's funny they both did it at the same time

If you could prove coordination between Google and Apple to do this, it is a MASSIVE anti trust violation

They all work together to de-platform conservatives and no one says a word.

It's not a new thing that they remove guns from apps. Even Bass Pro doesn't have guns in it's app despite that's a significant part of their business.

Better to learn who to trust now. If they are going to be 2A bigots, I'm happier that they are open about it.

2A Bigot is more accurate. Calling them Antis is too coded and subtle.

Just use the web browser? Not ideal, and I get it the app is useless, but still a work-around.

The app had a much better mobile interface than their website. I wish they'd release the unlocked app as an APK download. I'd totally be game for downloading and installing it manually.

Also, this thing with Apple and Google happened years ago, the OP is a bit late to this party.
