Thread: Facebook impose ban!

    Facebook impose ban!

    Just hearing on the Facebook side of things that shooting groups are under the microscope and will be banned if they are caught with firearms/shotguns being traded privatly. The classified section may start increasing more shortly.

    That's a bit of a stretch... quite a difference between needing personal security and opening the site to liability risk from trading activities. There are plenty of gun trade sites to use...

    Many 'unlicensed' gun transactions likely through the UK book of face?

    Deer Stalking UK and Deer Stalkers International have already posted "no more rifle/gun for sale adverts", but others are continuing, so it's a pretty mixed message at best!

    We all know that the UK has very different rules on firearm sales, but that won't stop FB imposing a blanket ban which is only ever going to stop the legal sale of firearms.

    Clearly those with criminal intent won't be going to a Facebook forum to buy anything, so it's not going to curtail gun crime in the UK!!!

    Guntrader and Gunstar will be getting a bit more trade

    Not quite Malcolm, this is probably the best site to buy a second hand rifle from but Pigeon Watch has got a huge amount of weapons up for sale at the moment. There are loads of adds that are very recent, perhaps people are offloading after the game season and having shot badly are now blaming the gun.

    Maybe they need to extend the game season to let them get more practice......
