  • Sunnyvale Dept of Public Safety is doing a gun buy-back Sept 29th (2018), along with a few other departments.[1]There was arbitrage, undercutting, unintended consequences, and worst of all, FB was allowing the violation of their own rules (against buying/selling/advertising Guns). But the rules are for proles, not them.
  • arbitrage opportunities: a used lorcin arms .380 goes for $29, and you can make a slam gun for $20 in parts, and they’re paying $100 pistol. Cha-Ching!
  • Others were talking about showing up with an FFL and a sign that said, “I’ll pay $120/gun”, and raking in guns below market value from the gullible rubes.
  • A bunch of CalGunners were reporting the post for violating Facebook rules on advertising/buying/selling guns using the facebook site.

Hey, rules are rules. However, since Facebook doesn't follow their own rules, so it didn't matter.

They allow buying/selling of guns, as long as it is economic stupidity. The rules only apply to conservatives or individuals: proving the corruption of Facebook. And at least a few people that are pro-Gun decided to leave the platform over the bigoted asshattery of Facebook.

Facebook is 3 things: bad interface, bad management, and biased policies. I want a social network that gives me control of what I see and share -- both to my friends and to advertisers. I realize they need to make a buck, and my information is their product, but the point is you can still give users the illusions of control. But Zuckerberg seems to have falling into the egocentric pit that many young billionaires do, they think because they timed things well, and worked hard, and got lucky that they're smarter than everyone else. This makes them arrogant, less mature, and slower to grow than the average human: Dunning-Kruger, inflated by being surrounded by yes-men.
