Gannett killed my old website, its archive and eight years of gun-related content

Here's how you can let them know what you think of their decision.

Gannett just killed my old website: TheGunWriter.com and its entire archive.

Gone are eight years worth of stories, photos, videos and other gun-related content.

For a media company that claims it values local journalism, this is unconscionable.

They didn’t even let me know — no emails or phone calls. They just took it down.

To be clear, they can’t touch my new website — thegunwriter.substack.com — but the loss of eight years worth of hard work is difficult to accept, especially since there were folks featured in the stories who are no longer with us.

Also, and for me this is the worst, there were a lot of stories and profiles of veterans. I never knew Gannett had such disdain for this country’s veterans.

The decision was made by Maribel Perez Wadsworth, President of the USA TODAY Network and Publisher of USA TODAY at Gannett.
