Facebook may announce company policy changes for gun-related pages in the coming weeks, VentureBeat has learned.

The social network has been under pressure from the powerful Mayors Against Illegal Guns and the Moms Demand Action civic group to ban gun-themed fan pages on the site.

“Talks are progressing. The discussions are ongoing; there have been positive developments,” sources close to the conversations told VentureBeat.

It'll come back and bite them in the ass in the long run and it'll be well deserved, it's romantic to stand up for a cause but once it starts to take a financial hit it's amazing how fast they turn tail. Removing that many pages and users is going to be felt.

I honesty doubt it. Facebook has always stayed out of taking sides on hot button political issues, like gay marriages, abortion, etc. Why should this be different?

I have to say as well-- with the nazi's and socialist they control voices if the media and people to segregate those that are complying vs those that are not- then target those that are not. If the mainstream media refuses to honor any 2a, online media takes same route-- many will not realize it is a political move and simply comply out of ignorance or fear or being the only voice. It is the exact opposite that causes people to bind together and stand up for rights. When people are watching things don't just slide by-- like congress passing laws in the middle of the night.

Probably need someone to creat a message to circulate and gather likes/shares to communicate a message to Facebook. If someone wants to post or creat one and put it up here so others can copy and post to their fb or email to others that will. That would be a good thing. Remember gentlemen-- the squeaky wheel gets the greese!

US optics, Nightforce, HK, and a ton of others have pages on FB.
What happens to them and the Facbook dropdown box list of comments from all their product release photos?

Just type a Manufacturer on Google and then look for their link. More than likely, they have a social media page on FB with lists of new 2014 product release developments and firearm related talk.

In an enormous coup, Facebook announces the stunning revelation that they will remove illegal posts offering illegal gun sales that are already illegal. HUGE VICTORY FOR THE ANTI-GUN CROWD. I'm sure there are thousands of people specifically offering to conduct illegal gun sales across state lines without an FFL. yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay

:rolleyes:

Illegal gun sales were only part of it, from what I read. Those two dingbat groups were actually trying to get all gun-themed pages removed, i.e. the FNH page, or the Garand Users page.

It also affects people offering guns for legal face to face sales. Why anyone would do this over fb in the first place I don't understand, there are plenty of other venues for this kind of thing.

Its their policy to make, at least they are not going full anti-1A on this.

National Shooting Sports Association issued a statement:

Facebook today acted to provide clarification

to its policies on postings concerning firearms and agreed to provide educational messaging on its platform. We are in agreement that all applicable laws should be observed in the private transfer of firearms. We would have welcomed the opportunity to provide our industry’s perspective, however, and regret that we were not consulted. Facebook’s clarification will not affect the lawful commerce in firearm and ammunition products for NSSF members and their customers.
