    Great social media site that seems to care about privacy and freedom.

    Elsewhere:
    Some of you may be aware of MeWe's recent change in access to certain gun Groups. MeWe has hidden some of these gun Groups, ostensibly to protect MeWe from liability. In the words of an alleged MeWe employee "Laura@mewe.com", the following was submitted by MeWe user Bo Hunter on a MeWe Universal Group thread as the reason given to him for the hiding of gun Groups:
