Court Rules in Armslist Favor Once Again

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS -  Armslist LLC announced that it has successfully defended itself against a Brady backed lawsuit.  Brady was established in 1980 as Handgun Control Inc.


In Stokinger v. Armslist, Brady argued before the Massachusetts Superior Court that the Safe Harbor of the Federal Communications Decency Act, 47 USC. 230, does not apply to the website because the website permits users to search and filter third party classified listings, such as by product make, model, item location, and seller type (i.e., dealer or private party).  The court disagreed with Brady and ruled that the CDA 230 Safe Harbor applies to the website because Armslist does not create the third party classified listings, nor is Armslist directly involved in the transaction.  The court cited and followed the recent Wisconsin Supreme Court and United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit decisions, in which Armslist prevailed against Brady on the same issue.


“We defended the foundation of the Internet against another assault, aimed at destroying free speech on the Internet,” Jon Gibbon, of Armslist said. “We fought against Brady’s bullying tactics.  For almost 50 years, Brady has tried to chill constitutionally protected rights by attempting to bankrupt prominent parties who operate within constitutionally protected industries that Brady does not approve of.  Brady obviously does not care if their anti-constitutional cause results in the destruction of the Internet. ”   


The Electronic Frontier Foundation has recognized CDA 230 as the most important law protecting Internet speech.  Armslist views the continued assault on CDA 230 by Brady as a severe threat to the Internet and the US economy. The success of Brady would jeopardize the continued operation of allInternet Service Providers and any online service that permits end-users to post content, and to search and filter third-party content.  Other sites that would be affected included Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, Autotrader, Yelp, eBay, and Etsy.


Armslist has prevailed in every jurisdiction where Brady has filed suit, including the United States Supreme Court, United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, Wisconsin Supreme Court, and Massachusetts Superior Court.


Brady recently filed another lawsuit against Armslist in Federal Court in the Eastern District of Wisconsin, putting forth the same arguments used in Stokingerand once again threatening free speech on the Internet.


Armslist is the Internet’s premier marketplace for firearms and firearms accessories.

What does it typical cost to defeat? Do any of the jurisdictions you've prevailed in, support 'slapback' provisions?

So, when do we get the power search back because I'm truly not interested in wading through all the crap I don't want to find what I do want.

I second the motion. Look into filing an anti-SLAPP to recover court costs and punitive damages.
veedubgti commented on 7/12/2020 8:59 PM
Is funny how we don't see those same rules being applied to the social media "platforms" that now take the liberties of "publishers" while benefitting from the 'Safe Harbor' amendment protections of the CDA. Good on you for fighting for your rights, Armslist. commented on 7/8/2020 11:44 AM

When does Armslist sue Brady for SLAP harrassment?
jrhoney commented on 7/2/2020 4:14 PM
Outstanding result. Finally justice prevails against the Brady Campaign's bullshit.

And me, , he’s actually the worst kind of pile of Schitt in the world. Total hypocrite. Uses it while simultaneously wanting it shut down. I wonder what his crybaby little girly men would say about her if they knew she was using Armslist?? They would cancel her into oblivion, because that’s how they roll. After jamming a fist up her Kirsten, cuz that’s also how they roll. They tend to love fecal matter and sticking things in fecal matter. She really is part of an unamerican crowd, intent on making America into Venezuela or Cuba. Yep. She is a real piece of Schitt

oliviageffen commented on 6/28/2020 6:38 PM
I'm a gun grabber, to use your snowflake term. I believe in gun control and I'll vote for candidates that share my view. AND I use Armslist, btw, to buy and sell, and there's no way you can stop me. Sorry.
