    Gun rights groups offer reward in Donnie Chin slaying

    Four Evergreen State gun rights organizations, including the Washington Arms Collectors (WAC) and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA), announced this afternoon they are offering a $4,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the slaying of lifelong Seattle International District activist Donnie Chin.

    Google redirected to a warning page for me. There was a red slash through the https in my header.

    Perhaps you are on a secret blacklist? ;)

    Edit to add information:

    I used a link to your article from Google (searched for Donny Chin Slaying) and it came up just fine. (Headscratch!)

    The header on the successful link started with www.examiner.com so it is different from the redirect from here.

    Weird.
    I bet it's something to do with the redirect software on the site.

    @Joe Link? You running any system updates?

    Always, but this isn't related to NWFA :D

    Below is a screenshot from my connection. What you're seeing is an HTTPS/SSL error on their end, possibly because they're using a 'self signed' certificate.

    Ya, that's weird. Click on it, get the warning. Copy/paste into search and you get google results.
    Just a test. This was copied from the article
    Where a link used to live
    Hope they get the turd.
    EDIT: It had the same "Untrusted Connection' result.
    Deleted link.

    FOLLOW-UP:

    And maybe it's YOUR software, not Examiner's, that sucks. Ever think about that? The thousands of other people who read these columns don't seem to have a problem

    Gun control group overlooks important fact in observance

    While four gun rights groups were announcing a reward fund yesterday to help find the killer or killers of Chinatown International District activist Donnie Chin, the anti-gun-rights Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility was busy capitalizing the ninth anniversary of the Seattle Jewish Federation shooting, omitting one important fact in the process…

    Dave, the link posted for the original subject here did not have the same url as the page I found with a Google search. Clearly, unless you are intentionally linking through another page, something is wrong with the url you posted. If you were intentionally linking through another page (in order to track usage, trigger pop-up ads, or some other reason) that link needs to be fixed.

    btw, I use Adblock Plus and don't get the pop-ups.

    Hover over the link in the first post, then hover over the link in the second. The first link has https:// in the URL, the second is a plain http:// link. This is why the second link works fine but the first gives us an HTTPS/SSL error.

    OK now. Don't get testy,be the professional in the crowd.
    The Examiner still has way too many pop ups,and I could care less if it's because i use Fire fox. I don't have that problem anywhere else.
    I still very rarely click on the Examiner link.I shouldn't have to get rid of crap to see the story

    Yeah - I copied the URL from the OP and looked at it and it had this:

    "ht tps: //liberty.seanet.com/owa/redir.aspx?SURL=6292voJh3AA8QcHNccU1Xl95pW1HQq5Rb24vk99IbbJvAQiMpJfSCGgAdAB0AHAAOgAvAC8AdwB3AHcALgBlAHgAYQBtAGkAbgBlAHIALgBjAG8AbQAvAGEAcgB0AGkAYwBsAGUALwBnAHUAbgAtAHIAaQBnAGgAdABzAC0AZwByAG8AdQBwAHMALQBvAGYAZgBlAHIALQByAGUAdwBhAHIAZAAtAGQAbwBuAG4AaQBlAC0AYwBoAGkAbgAtAHMAbABhAHkAaQBuAGcA&URL=ht tp://www.examiner.com/article/gun-rights-groups-offer-reward-donnie-chin-slaying"

    I put some spaces in there so it will show as text and not a URL.

    Which, like the others, comes up with a warning in Chrome. It looks like it is going through some kind of redirection site that isn't kosher for whatever reason. Probably something to do with advertising.

    Here is a direct link:
