Facebook And Instagram Ban Private Gun Sales
Facebook continues tightening its policy on gun sales.By Eugene Daniels | January 29, 2016
Private gun sales on Facebook and Instagram just became impossible. According to The New York Times, Facebook is banning the practice from both sites.
In a statement, Facebook said, "Over the last two years, more and more people have been using Facebook to discover products and to buy and sell things to one another," and it's making sure its policies keep up with that "evolution."
There are a couple of caveats though. The ban applies only to public posts, not those done through direct messaging. It also impacts only sales between individuals, not licensed gun dealers.
