As Facebook Bans Gun Sales Gun Traders Respond by Creating New Websites

(N.Morgan) Facebook has barred the selling and trading of guns on their site and in response, gun traders are hurrying to create new websites, so they can have a platform for gun trades/sales. With gun rights and safety registering as a hot-button issue on the U.S. presidential campaign trail after several mass shootings last year, Facebook has announced on Friday it would no longer allow users to arrange private gun sales via the site. The reaction to this latest push of gun control has been swift among some Facebook gun trader groups, hundreds of which are based in the United States. Some of them immediately began advertising other gun-dealing websites.
