The Armed Citizen Suspends Operation

According to this posting, The Armed Citizen is suspending operation.
On July 21st, The Armed Citizen received an indirect and informal notice of a lawsuit against this website and its owners, David Burnett and Clayton Cramer.

The suit, reportedly filed in US District Court on July 20th, alleges that The Armed Citizen and its owners “willfully copied” and infringed on original source content from the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

According to news reports, Righthaven LLC has filed lawsuits against no less than 80 other political websites and individual blogs for “infringement.”

The Armed Citizen website has helped publicize reports of law-abiding people using guns in self defense. Thousands of brief snippets from news reports, with proper attribution, have been posted there.
