Jana Duggar Accused of Selling MASSIVE Gun Collection Online!

If you follow the family closely, then you’re probably aware that Duggar controversies come in all shapes and sizes.

There’s stuff like the Josh Duggar sex scandal that nearly brought down Jim Bob’s entire media empire, but mostly it’s smaller potatoes, like fans going insane because Jessa allowed her kids to wear white after Labor Day, or something.

It’s tough to say where Saga of Jana’s Alleged Gun Collection will fall on that spectrum.

On the surface, it’s got all the makings of a real brouhaha.

After all, it involves guns, the possible illicit sale of guns, and Jana Duggar — aka The Most Interesting Member of the Family By a Considerable Margin.

But on the other hand, there’s a very strong that this is a whole lot of BS, and there’s no real scandal here at all.

Allow us to explain:

The Duggars love to buy real estate, fix it up, and turn a profit by selling it for more than they paid.

Along with the truckload of money they make from their reality show and related media ventures (posting sponsored content on social media, etc.), flipping houses is one of the family’s largest and most reliable sources of income.

Jana long ago earned a reputation as the most business-savvy and multi-talented of the Duggars, and so it comes as no surprise that she’s taken an active role in the real estate game.

With us, so far? Good, because this is where it gets weird.

Back in April, Jana started her own company.

It’s called the Arbor Acres Group, LLC and no one’s really sure what the hell purpose it serves.

But based on the name and Jana’s interest in real estate and renovations, it’s widely assumed she’ll be using the corporation to buy and sell houses.

Now, what does all of this have to do with Jana smuggling entire arsenals like some evangelical Oliver North?

We’re getting to it! Stop being so pushy, hypothetical reader!

You see, last year Michelle and Jim Bob brought up a massive 2.7 acre home in Siloam Springs, Arkansas.

It was one of their biggest buys in a while, and like many of Jim Bob’s real estate deals, it stirred up considerable controversy among his new neighbors.

Turns out your typical Arkansas resident would prefer that his home not wind up on reality TV every week. Who knew!

The situation led to speculation that Jana’s company was basically a shell corporation that would take some of the heat off of Jim Bob’s wheelings and dealings.

Now, the moment you’ve been waiting for — the guns.

After more than a year of renovations (presumably spearheaded by Jana), the Siloam Springs mansion is finally listed online.

Jana's Guns

And as the eagle-eyed folks at Radar Online noticed, the property appears to be home to quite a few firearms.

This has led some to conclude that Jana has broken bad and is officially moving large quantities of weaponry on the black market.

She’s been working on this house for over a year! these dummies argue. Why would the guns still be on the shelves … unless they come with the house!

Sadly, it appears that what’s really happening here is much more boring.

It seems to us that the Duggars left the guns there in order to demonstrate the intended use for the room.

So while this isn’t the Duggars’ first gun-related controversy and it likely won’t be their last, it looks to us like there’s not much to be concerned about here

Jim Bob and company own a lot of weapons, and they’re probably ready to blow some heathen heads off once the Rapture hits the fan.

But none of that has anything to do with this — which appears to be nothing more than the Arkansas equivalent of putting some prop spices on a spice rack.

The Duggars: Who’s Courting? Pregnant? Next In Line? [MORE UPDATES!]

Counting On is basically the reality TV equivalent of Game of Thrones:

On each show, there are roughly four million characters, and it’s often difficult to keep track of who’s doing what … or whom.

The Duggars take a slightly more conservative view on coupling than the residents of Westeros, but all the same, courtships, weddings, pregnancies, and births are a big part of what keeps their core audience tuning in.

So here’s a rundown of what some of Jim Bob and Michelle’s kids are up to these days.

Don’t worry – unlike Thrones, the Duggars won’t be leaving your TV screen anytime soon. Not as long as they continue to make sure Earth’s population growth continues unabated.

UPDATE: The Duggar drama never ends! We’ll continue adding the latest developments to the end of this gallery!

Jana Duggar Claps Back HARD at Garden-Shaming Troll

Even her own personal friends are urging Jana Duggar to find a man already so that she can escape her indentured servitude.

Jana, however, is keeping herself busy — working hard at gardening.

When a troll tried to shame her for spending her days in the dirt, Jana found a smart way to clap back.

Jana Duggar garden photo

Jana Duggar uploaded a glimpse at her beautiful garden.

With her famous green thumb, it’s really no surprise.

One of her so-called “fans” took issues, however, and decided to try to ridicule her.

“Jana do more [than] be 30 years old living at home gardening,” demanded the impertinent commenter.

The troll’s post continued, mocking her with: “lol what a life.”

Jana Duggar claps back at garden-shaming troll

Jana receives unkind questions every day on social media.

This time, she elected to respond.

“Oh, believe me,” Jana politely assured the hater. “That’s not all I do.”

She followed that sentence with a laughing emoji, as if the suggestion that she spends her days gardening is just that funny.

“Gardening is just my little hobby on the side,” she explained.

First of all, she’s absolutely right about gardening not being her only activity.

Many of us who were eldest siblings found ourselves roped into the role of a third, involuntary caregiver to our younger siblings at any and all hours.

For Jana, that is taken to further extremes. She didn’t escape from that life upon reaching adulthood.

Why? Because in the Duggar family, the only milestone that can earn your independence is marriage.

Since Jana hasn’t been sold off to a fundamentalist suitor yet, she remains in the thrall of Jim Bob and Michelle.

In addition to chores, she’s tasked with homeschooling her younger siblings.

Jana will be 30 in about six months, and she will very likely still obediently following her parents’ whims.

But her life as a Duggar drudge and kind but unqualified teacher isn’t the whole and sum of what she does with her time.

And though she clearly has a passion for gardening and for plants in general, Jana is turning her green thumb into more than a mere hobby.

Back in April, Jana Duggar filed the paperwork to start her own business.

It’s called Arbor Acres Group LLC, and Jana appears to be the only person involved with the startup.

Fans were immediately intrigued — less by what she had planned for her company, and more by what this might mean for her future.

See, part of what allows tyrannical fundamentalist parents to remain in power — aside from tools like cultural isolation — is money.

Jim Bob Duggar is a millionaire. He’s known for setting up opportunities and buying houses for his children.

But since Jana has not gotten married, she continues to play Cinderella around the house.

She’s old enough to leave without the police bringing her back, but where would she go? What would she do?

Well, whatever Arbor Acres Group is, fans wonder if she might use it to stockpile enough money to one day make her escape.

That said, that could just be wishful thinking — or pure projection — on the part of Duggar fans who are rooting for Jana.

Either way, she’s doing so much more than gardening these days.

21 Bizarre Duggar Family Rules: The Things They Don’t Allow …

The Duggar family’s unusual dating rules had been well documented long before the Arkansans were embroiled in scandal.

Once Josh Duggar’s child molestation history – and brazen adultery – was exposed, they’ve been under a microscope since.

Yet, despite his hypocrisy, and the fact that their every move is under heavier scrutiny all the time, they weather the storm.

TLC axed 19 Kids & Counting, only to quickly come back with Counting On, featuring the same Duggars and their beliefs.

Well, sans Josh. That’s a bridge too far for even the hard core believers. But when it comes to core values, they stand firm.

Their belief system certainly requires conviction in order to practice, since their list of policies for love and life is not short.

Despite Joy-Anna Duggar breaking rules, or modest shifts (Jinger rebelling and Jill distancing herself), the rules are no joke.

Here are 21 things the Duggars do not allow …

1. Dates Without Chaperones

Duggar daughters
The Duggar parents often accompany their kids on dates in order to maintain “accountability” and “keep things from going in the wrong direction,” per Jim Bob. The girls are fine with this, as being alone with men puts them in grave “moral danger.” When the parents aren’t available, their older siblings will often tag along, making every date a group date and a family affair.

2. Non-Group Texts

Even in the kids’ late teens and early 20s, mom and dad are creeping on their text messages. When Ben Seewald jokingly wrote to fiancee Jessa, “Give me a ring,” Jim Bob actually jumped in on the group text, writing “No ring yet.” With a smiley face emoticon. Seriously, he did that. Whatever you think of him, Jim Bob needs his own Instagram so he can start posting screen shots of this stuff.

3. Hugs on the Chest

This moment you see here between Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard would not have been permitted until the couple was married. Side hugs are the preferred method of PDA in order to prevent any further temptation or “hanky panky,” as has been well documented on 19 Kids and Counting. The Duggars love their side hugs so hard … though not too too hard, lest they lead to full-frontal hugging. And any touching beyond that? Save it for your wedding night.

4. Riding in Cars Together

It’s no secret that the Duggars have strict dating rules. We’ve talked about some already and there are plenty more to come on this list. But one of the most bizarre was revealed only recently in an episode in which Joseph and Kendra Caldwell officially started courting. They were seen in a car, driving together … with one of the younger Duggar sitting in between them in the front seat of a pickup truck. Shortly after the courtship “proposal,” she was allowed to slide almost all the way over to Joseph. Not close enough for any inappropriate touching, obviously, but without another dude in between, which is mandatory during the “just friendsâ€� phase. Wow.

5. Co-Ed Hide and Seek

Duggars
In the wake of the Josh Duggar molestation scandal going public years later, Jim Bob and Michelle gave in interview in which they talked about all of the things they did in its aftermath. In between blaming Josh’s indiscretions on being a curious pubescent boy, they discussed family rules that resulted from this, such as the children no longer being allowed to play co-ed hide and seek. That’s right, no two children regardless of age are allowed to go off alone, even in the context of this childhood pastime. How much that really helps the situation they were responding to remains to be seen.

6. Alcohol

This is probably an obvious one if you know anything about the Duggars. The family does not smoke or drink. They do, however, enjoy the occasional sugary dessert or getting high on life and love.

Jana Duggar: Why Did She Keep Her Courtships Secret?

Last week, Jana Duggar dropped a bombshell that left some fans stunned.

Even if you’re only a casual fan of her family’s, you’re likely aware that Jana is still single at the age of 29, which is a very big deal in Duggar World.

After all, this is a family in which girls are taught from a young age that procreation is their primary reason for being.

Thus, so far, Jana’s sisters have all married in their teens or early twenties and set about the business of starting a family soon after tying the knot.

But Jana has chosen a different approach, which has led to some interesting theories about why she’s decided to remain unattached.

At the heart of many fan hypotheses is Jana’s friendship with Laura DeMasie.

Rumors that Jana and Laura are romantically involved have been circulating for years, and Jana recently addressed those reports when asked point-blank about the nature of their relationship.

“Are you and Laura dating? Anyone else think the same thing?â€� a fan wrote on Jana’s Instagram page.

“No. And I would like to stop that rumor. I have no interest in girls that way whatsoever,� Jana replied.

“I have ‘courted’ or ‘dated’ a few guys, but so far nothing has gone into a serious relationship. Just continuing to wait and pray for the right guy to come along.�

Many fans were more shocked by Jana’s revelation of past courtships than by the fact that she finally addressed the Laura rumors.

Of course, Jana’s surprising reply raised more questions than it answered.

Chief among them, of course, is why weren’t any of Jana’s courtships documented on her family’s reality show?

It’s a question that’s popped up frequently in Duggar message boards this past week.

But for all the debate surrounding Jana’s “secret” courtships, this is one question that appears to have two fairly straightforward answers.

For one thing, Jana’s courtships didn’t make it to air because they simply never got that serious.

This is a theory that’s been bandied about by fans, and it seems rather self-evident.

Jana said that she’s been involved in some courtships, but she never indicated they got serious.

Duggars consider a courtship a failure — and something of an embarrassment — unless it results in marriage.

Thus, Jim Bob and Michelle’s kids only go public with their romantic relationships if it looks as though there’s a good chance of a wedding in the near future.

(Josiah Duggar’s courtship with Marjorie Jackson is thus far the only Duggar courtship that hasn’t resulted in marriage.)

On top of that, Jana is simply more private than some of her siblings.

Jill and Jessa were eager to go through the steps of courtship in front of a camera crew, but Jana has always demonstrated a temperament that’s very different from that of her sisters.

Sure, she appears on television, but by all accounts, she does so reluctantly, and would generally prefer to be attending to her household chores and homeschooling her younger siblings.

Jana just got an Instagram page earlier this, and most of her posts have to do with these tasks.

Yes, it’s surprising to learn that there are aspects of life on the Duggar compound that have yet to be made public.

But anyone who knows Jana won’t be surprised that she decided to keep her love life on the down-low.

Jana Duggar Swears She’s Not Gay … But Fans Don’t Believe Her

For months now, Duggar fans have been speculating about the nature of the extremely close relationship between Jana Duggar and Laura DeMasie.

Typically, the Duggars refuse to comment on social media rumors, but the chatter was so loud in this case that Jana felt she had no choice but to respond.

When an Instagram follower asked Jana point-blank if she’s dating Laura, the 29-year-old offered an uncharacteristically blunt response:

“No,� Jana replied promptly. “And I would like to stop that rumor. I have no interest in girls that way whatsoever.

“I have ‘courted’ or ‘dated’ a few guys but so far nothing has gone into a serious relationship,� Jana continued.

“Just continuing to wait and pray for the right guy to come along.”

Rumors about Jana’s love life have been circulating for years, and this terse response constitutes her most detailed reply to date.

Clearly, Jana is eager to put the Laura rumors behind her.

Unfortunately, she may find that’s easier said than done.

These days, DeMasie lives in Georgia, having relocated from Arkansas for a career opportunity.

But in the Duggar-fixated corners of the internet, fans are still convinced that she and Jana are far more than just friends.

“On one hand the [religion] does emphasize same-sex friendships in unmarried women … and the Duggars particularly seem to have an issue separating friend things and family things, so it wouldn’t be weird for them to have an unwed daughter always doing everything with a close female friend,â€� one Reddit user remarked after Jana’s firm denial.

“On the other hand, 30-year-old single women living in the same house and doing everything together as “best friends�

Others believed Jana’s claim that she’s not physically attracted to Laura, but still maintained that DeMasie fills a need that goes deeper than a typical friendship:

“I don’t know if she is gay but I think part of the reason why she hangs out with [Laura] is because Jana [desires] adult company,” one fan theorized.

“All of her adult sisters are gone. I doubt she can have a meaningful conversation with her younger sisters.â€�

We’re inclined to believe Jana, and questioning someone’s sexuality when they’ve made it clear that such speculation makes them uncomfortable is, frankly, not a good look.

That said, it’s not hard to see why fans are convinced there’s more going on here.

After all, it must get awfully lonely on that compound.
