Facebook And Instagram Saving Lives With Some Gun Sale Changes

LOL yawn:

The new rules:

  • Any time we receive a report on Facebook about a post promoting the private sale of a commonly regulated item, we will send a message to that person reminding him or her to comply with relevant laws and regulations. We will also limit access to that post to people over the age of 18.
  • We will require Pages that are primarily used by people to promote the private sale of commonly regulated goods or services to include language that clearly reminds people of the importance of understanding and complying with relevant laws and regulations, and limit access to people over the age of 18 or older if required by applicable law.
  • We will provide special in-app education on Instagram for those who search for sales or promotions of firearms.
  • We will not permit people to post offers to sell regulated items that indicate a willingness to evade or help others evade the law. For example, private sellers of firearms in the U.S. will not be permitted to specify “no background check required,” nor can they offer to transact across state lines without a licensed firearms dealer.

Full document over at the Facebook newsroom.

Move along folks… nothing to see here.  I’ll eat my words though when this time next year the report will come out that since these new rules were put in place, criminals found it very difficult to obtain firearms illegally and crime drastically decreased.

Nutnfancy-Googly-Eyes-Herp-DerpFollow me on Facebook and Instagram btw.  I have been giving some books and t-shirts away on Instagram you’re missing out on if you’re not following.

Thoughts?

So is lip service considered a victory for Mom Who Want to Ban Everything? If so then dang I guess we lost. Now we’ll only be able to sell firearms on DerpBook if we aren’t breaking the law. Just like before.

“For example, private sellers of firearms in the U.S. will not be permitted to specify “no background check required,””

What about states that aren’t Colorado and allow private sales with no background check?

I farted a little bit. It had a smokey robust tang to it. The sound and smell were both more appealing than this lady telling me it’s for the children.

I mean, we should disarm all cops, because hey, if it only saves one life, right? I could get on board with that.
