Moronic Shopify Policies

What are your feelings on Shopify's dumbass policy from a week and a bit ago? I've taken some time to soak it in because the business I work for uses Shopify for the website.

For those that don't know, on August 13, Shopify updated their acceptable use policy and made a list of "restricted items" but comprised completely of firearms and firearm parts. Its a very blatant attack on firearms, and by extension, an attack on airsoft.

Full list of "restricted items" available here:
https://www.shopify.com/legal/aup-definitions

In Canada, airsoft guns are classified as firearms. Uncontrolled firearms, but still firearms. Seeing as Shopify is a Canadian company, companies like BlackBlitz Airsoft might get fucked. Shopify is already fucking several US gun companies, who knows when they're gonna start shutting down airsoft sales.

Who else has a website that runs on Shopify?

The above link is where I first heard of it last week. I think it’s a steaming pile of poo... if there is big’ish companies (relative sizing) that may get folded under, I feel bad for The smaller mom & pop sized outfits.

Yet, Shopify is the outfit the lcbo choose to do the cannabis sales online. Hurray for some political agenda
