Facebook Shutting Down Firearms Sales

Recommended Posts

If you have a few weeks or months, read "Atlas Shrugged". It will change one's way of looking at business, government, and morales.

Within a few short years we have built a group with almost 5,000 members. There have been 1,000's of successful transactions by many fantastic people. As this was a FREE service provided by Facebook they have no incentive to keep it going as it's against their views. We haven't had one issue with Facebook to date with our members. Have not had one person come on and try and purchase a firearm illegally that we have been made aware of. That said our group is still open for business but should it get shut down we already have over 400 members on our backup site. I welcome all here to join:

Their site, their rules. 

 

Not really. One could make a solid argument for them being a place of public accommodation given the nature of their business. Within places of public accommodation, there are rules about what can and cannot be censored without running afoul of the first amendment or other civil rights violations. The person to person sale of pretty much anything is not likely to make the cut for being protected though.

Yep.... gone.... kaput

 

No, Tanners is not down.  I sent Ray Tanner a note about it this morning.  He said the page is working. They had to put a age restriction on it. With the age restriction you have to be registered to FB to see the page now. They had to do it with all the new rules going on. I am not on FB so I get the dead link some others are seeing.  If you saved your logon cookie and clicked the link to their page, it would open up as normal.  This is why some people get the dead link while others see the page.

Mark Z and Facebook can go screw themselves.  I will not join their shit show.  They roll your C drive and identify the OS, apps, IP address, etc. being used.  Then if you post, they have full rights and access to the data - forever!

Facebook has no reason to support this and a LOT of reasons to fight it.  That one will be in the courts for years and years.

I get that for a normal business, but once a company has monopoly powers there are typically other public access rules that come into play.  

What monopoly does Facebook have?  Last time I checked they don't charge anyone to just use their webpage.

There's no monopoly..  They are not a government agency.  They are not a public utility.  You agreed to their terms & conditions when you signed up.  You do not pay for their service.  They can do whatever they want.  We may not AGREE with it, but sad but true, they can do what they want.  As for a lawyer..  LOL..  good luck with that..

If anyone has started using MeWe feel free to add me there. I'm trying to see how all the interactions work and group pages etc. I'll probably start using that as my firearms site and leave FB to just family/friend interactions to keep up to date with things. Probably won't even be on FB as much now LOL

A lot to get used to but I really do like some of the features on that site. Love that you have a discussion for each group on the right side and you get a pop up sort of in your My World for new posts on groups you are a part of. Easy to sort out...just trying to figure out notifications.

It is Farcebooks policy to not allow firearm sales, even from Firearm Dealers. It is under their prohibited items page under the business FAQs. As far as I know, it has always been there.

 

Does anyone have a link to this new policy? I can not find any.

The same people should be here lol...and if not, the word needs to be spread to have them join here.

 

True... but the classifieds were much better the old way. I pretty much stopped reading them. It's mostly vendor ads all the time anyways.

    • I just got LifeLock this year after some funny business.  Worth every penny.
    • I'm seeing reports by people more familiar with the behind the scenes tech systems, and they're seeing more "outside probings" into critical systems. Concerns are, if things go hot in the Euro theater or Asia theater, it won't just be tanks and artillery doing the fighting. So, first, keep an eye on your bank balances, retirement account balances, credit cards, etc. for possible hacking, inaccess or questionable activity. I saw reports out West last night that some USAA credit and debit cards weren't working. Second, there has been two different reports on critical infrastructure (electric and water) that hackers are looking for an intrusion into a way to shut them down. The fact that these two warnings below have come out recently, means that TPTB think it's a good possibility. Getting power or water shut down to large areas won't be a pleasant thing. ...."WASHINGTON (AP) — Extremist groups in the United States appear to increasingly view attacking the power grid as a means of disrupting the country, according to a government report aimed at law enforcement agencies and utility operators." https://apnews.com/article/business-united-states-law-enforcement-agencies-9e3d1d4d4cd429b69a787235caa7e4b8 ......"Cyber defenses for US drinking water supplies are "absolutely inadequate" and vulnerable to large-scale disruption by hackers, a senior official said Thursday. "There's inadequate resilience to even a criminal sector," the official said. "The threshold of resilience is not what it needs to be." https://news.yahoo.com/us-says-national-water-supply-142023485.html
    • It's got to survive the fact CA has state preemption AND then pass constitutional challenges. Even the 9th would have a very hard time upholding the fee, but they are 97% scumbag by volume, so.... Likely it'll just be killed by state preemption.   
    • That list is incredibly misleading.  Like paypal on the list is truly leaning into bitcoin because they are willing to provide actual money to merchants in exchange for you giving them bitcoin. They are actually swapping one form of money for another.   Similar with newegg.  At&t on the other hand accepts traditional money and has just integrated a payment method that says they will allow bitpay to give them cash on your behalf. They don't want your bitcoin.  Microsoft is on the list, but removed bitcoin, readded, and appear to have removed it again, at least all their FAQs on how to do it no longer work for me to see the option.  Starbucks doesn't want your bitcoin, which is why you can't use it in person. They will accept dollars form a third party on your behalf after the transaction completes. They will then give you credit for that at a later date.  Overstock is hard to say what they are doing.  Amazon doesn't want your bitcoin, but will accept dollars on your behalf from a third party. Apply this scrutiny to the rest of the list, and it gets much, much shorter.   
    • Mostly fringe companies. When popular places like the grocery store, gas stations, mortgage companies, car loans, landlords, utilities, etc. jump on board, then let me know.
