Facebook Shutting Down Firearms Sales

Recommended Posts

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.

Because posts were bump-able and ppl were ale to post shitting on people's asking prices where the two main reasons ppl liked the old format better...once those things were taking away the new format "sucked"...the community did it to themselves.

I agree that when people used to negatively comment on someone's price that was a dick move and there should have been a rule against it. I still think that the old marketplace was much better and I think that the majority of members agree. I was initially attracted to this forum because of the marketplace. As for facebook it dosent affect me any as I have never used it and never will

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

Good advice.

 

Also, Mark Zuckerberg is very liberal. Very anti gun. Surprised it took him this long to curtail speech he doesn't like.

well then the mods should have busted out the ban hammer. Let's see what troy has in store for us with this new new marketplace. If I like I have at least 2 guns to list unless I sell them on armslist first. Since the old marketplace was changed I have taken to selling on armslist instead but it the new one is good Ill come back

Ok, for anyone who has used FB to list stuff.... you can get a month free here of Premier membership.  Use promo code "FBNJGFS" to get the first month free.

 

Feel free to share it.

 

We will try to keep it civil.  I LOVE the classifieds listings... however it is tougher for people to post... although it does create a higher quality listing.

Btw, the other thing that I just did not get about facebook posting.... why would you put photos of your guns.... under your profile..  ZERO privacy from all regard.  You are advertising to bad guys about what you have and where you keep it.

The old marketplace was more "Interactive".   As long as people would follow a few simple rules it would be great.  I'm happy its back.

 

Even on FB people would try and shit on other peoples posts... One that comes to mind is a Glock Gen 3 being sold and some Yahoo posts "Gen 4 is Better" and Poof he's gone.

He is not really anti-gun when it comes to his own protection: http://pagesix.com/2016/02/14/mark-zuckerberg-has-16-bodyguards-at-his-home/

    • That's the biggie.. Many infrastructure control workers shifted to working from home in the Covid crazy, in some cases, using their own computers, which have left the door open for intrusion into the systems, through unsecure computers. Peel might get the chance to experience her "Lights Out" book in real life! A few months ago that main pipeline got hacked in the South East... if more like that spread through important electric, NG, fuel, water systems, it will get interesting. For those on city sewer, just imagine what happens when the pumps get hacked and stopped, and crap ain't being sent down the line. ...
    • This stove is over 20 years old so in my research back then, I discovered that a catalytic converter could be expected to last 5 years.  Routine maintenance consisted of taking apart the stove and cleaning the converter annually.  When you say you "don't get more than 6'ish hours average"  I take that to mean you fill up the burn box and don't have to add wood for six hours?  If that's the case, and that's what you are looking for, I don't recommend this stove.  Burn time to add wood for this stove is between 30 - 60 minutes.
    • Link: https://lancasteronline.com/news/local/atf-agents-seize-guns-from-leacock-township-property-amish-farmer-admits-sales/article_736a4096-7e25-11ec-9b81-c73a25950798.html [Note: this is posted to a public forum, so please don't get rabidly partisan/political in your comments. Thx].  This is an interesting recent case where the ATF raided (with 15 agents, no less!) the home/business of an Amish farmer in Lancaster, PA area who owns a dairy farm and foundry and has also done private gun sales (which he claims were all long guns from his large private collection) but which the ATF apparently suspects is more of an unlicensed firearms business. I won't get into the merits of the case itself - since it's too early to do so -but I personally thought it had some interesting angles... First, the Amish people's reticence to being photographed apparently pushes them more towards private sales, a cultural wrinkle I hadn't considered. Quoting from the article: Federal laws require photo identification when purchasing a firearm from a licensed dealer. The Amish contend their religious beliefs prevent them from being photographed, so they cannot buy a firearm from a licensed dealer. However, private sellers don’t have to require the buyer to present photo identification. Additionally, yes, I was somewhat aware of this next angle,  but I guess it never "struck me" until reading this case, re: just how incredibly nebulous and loosely defined the Gun Control Act is with its definition of who needs to get a firearm dealer's license. Again, quoting from the article: A 15-page document posted to the bureau’s [ATF's] site and titled, “Do I need a license to buy and sell firearms?” states that the federal Gun Control Act “requires that persons who are engaged in the business of dealing in firearms be licensed by the bureau.” “Determining whether you are ‘engaged in the business’ of dealing in firearms requires looking at the specific facts and circumstances of your activities,” the document said, noting no federal law sets a “‘bright-line’ rule for when a federal firearms license is required.” The ATF document says a person “will need a license if you repetitively buy and sell firearms with the principal motive of making a profit.” Licenses are not required for someone who engages in “occasional sales of firearms from your personal collection,” the document added. Anyone who “willfully engages in the business of dealing in firearms without the required license is subject to criminal prosecution, and can be sentenced to up to five years in prison, fined up to $250,000, or both,” the document said. Without that clearly defined "bright line" (e.g., no greater than X# guns per year sold, or, sales that are no greater than X# percentage of your annual income, etc.) - it seems like this law is bound to trip people up. On the one hand, the Gov/ATF - through this law - is withholding clear, unequivocal guidance from its citizens, while on the other hand, retaining their ability to punish them severely. (Ha! Am I stating the obvious here? I guess in all these years as a gun owner, I just never really thought about this aspect of the law before... perhaps because I've never personally engaged in a private sale...?).  Anyway, will be interesting to see if we hear more about this case down the road. Just thought it was worthwhile sharing.
    • The metaverse is a pile of shit. Even assuming it is something people want long term, they don’t want what is being made. People don’t want to move to Facebook-burg and be stuck with no amenities but the company store.  Also there were gold atms which heralded the return to hard currency from fiat right? i will also point out that there’s an atm down the street that has a $9 service fee. Just because some grifter sees a chance to make a buck doesn’t mean that’s the future knocking on your door.    I’ll be more excited when making it convenient doesn’t just translate to being rid of the bitcoin you have for a more recognized cash equivalent. Like tell me when we have the first big company offering refunds in crypto when you paid in crypto.
