As you may be aware, our friends at Guns.com have been down since last night. They issued this tweet about the situation . . .
All – Our site is experiencing some technical difficulties, we apologize for the inconvenience and we will let you know when we are back up

Given the current climate, speculation was rampant that they had been the latest target of deplatforming. But we just spoke to Guns.com’s CEO Greg Minkler who tells TTAG that the outage is due to a malicious cyber attack on the site by a bad actor and is not due to a deplatforming by their hosting company or registrar.
Minkler told us the goal is to have the site back up and running by late this evening.
