Facebook Considers New Restrictions on Gun Conversations
Social media giant working with gun grabbers to censor support for the Second Amendment
March 4, 2014
Facebook is currently working with two anti-gun groups to further restrict firearm discussions on its various pages in a move that will likely lead to the outright censorship of gun topics throughout the social media site.
After Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action spent the past month pressuring Facebook to censor gun-themed fan pages, the company finally agreed to reconsider its current policies, according to the anti-gun publication Venture Beat.
An insider told the publication that the ongoing talks between the gun control groups and Facebook were “progressing” and that they have already made agreements yet to be disclosed.
Moms Demand Action, which publicly partnered with MAIG in December, began to pressure Facebook last month to change its stance on firearms.
The anti-gun group even produced a video meant to “shame” Facebook for allowing its members to post pictures of and privately sell firearms, despite the fact that such transactions are perfectly legal in the vast majority of states.
But the group’s attack on gun rights won’t stop there.
