Do they block "jobrelatedstuff.com" too?

How about McUzi.com?

Did't try the McUzi one, but tried jobrelated, banedsr to no avail.

Azshooting is blocked too. Red-dawn is not.

Program used is called Websense and listed the site under "weapons".

I was able to browse (not post) using proxify.com though.

Although it sucks, they have a good reason for using some type of filtering. They can be held liable if someone uses their networks to do something illegial or actionable. Things like surfing for child porn, or just viewing porn in a public place, making threatening statements on the internet, or using their network as a means to avoid detection of certain offenses (hacking/cracking, etc).

Although AR15 is benign enough, they really don't have the manpower to try to justify every site on their unapproved list. It makes it much easier to just set up the cyber nanny to block as much as possible.

... Lodge a formal complaint.

... Let them know you are LEO and use the website to conduct business. Get an e-mail addy so we can lend some help.
