Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (MDA) has launched a new campaign claiming Facebook and Instagram are "effectively hosting online gun shows."

According to PR Newswire, MDA is asking "Facebook and Instagram to immediately enact a policy prohibiting all gun sales and trades of firearms on their platforms." They want the two social media platforms to shut their "private sale loophole."

"Moms looking for a little 'action'" rear their ugly heads once again. I know whenever I'm lookin' for a new gun I head straight to facebook or instagram. NOT! I guess some people might.

A good lookin’ mom shouldn’t have to look past Craigslist for a little action.

“private sale loophole” - OK, now they’ve let the veil slip, whether they know it or not. Leftists sometimes do this when they become too confident that “everybody” believes the same crap they do.
This is what the “gun show loophole” was about. However, they used this wording to make it seem to the uninformed like all sales at a gun show went unrecorded.

Seriously - they’re pushing to make it illegal for one person to sell a firearm to another person?
Put their ideas in “truth terms”, and they lose most of their support.

Like, “you really want it to be protected in law that a woman can have her baby killed at any time up to birth, on demand, and at taxpayer expense?”

They should shut down instagram. It’s the only way to make sure.

"private sale loophole."

Loophole?

It is my stuff, and If I want to sell MY stuff, that isn't a loophole, It is my Right.

Part of owning private property of any sort is the Right to dispose of it as one sees fit.

The real target is private sales. I could see somebody on FB mentioning he was looking to get rid of an item, and one of his FB friends expressing interest, or vice versa. To stop that sort of thing would require a LOT of monitoring. Perhaps NSA could help?

This little oufit is located right next door to my town in Indiana. We’re not too far from Chicago (2 hrs).
I emailed Mayor Rhambo to deputize these chicks and send them (along with some ATF guys) into the Chicago ‘hood to clean up all the illegal guns.

Never got a reply.

Yeah, where are these? I follow a few gun pages on FB. I'll admit to being just barely FB literate. I'm looking for a good 1911. Ok, saving up for, the serious looking will start in a few months.

“Hey babe. Go get me another beer. Stat!” :>} Or maybe the dad’s got tired of these nags and we now have a another bunch of single moms. Or the dad’s have been whipped in to submission or otherwise wimperized/feminized/emasculated/neuterd(sp)/rendered sackless.

Mr B, how do these cretins exist in a real world? When any one of us can begin listing crimes where no gun was involved legal or illegal. We all need to start listing these types of crime on anti-gun pages and on threads here at FR.

Take this one. I have personally known Nicki’s mom for a long time before this crime happened.

19 years going on 20 on TN death row, DNA proof. He raped, strangled to death with her own shoe laces Nicki Read and then threw her body in the river.
http://www.commercialappeal.com/news/2012/dec/20/millington-death-row-inmate-loses-bid-to-reopen/?print=1

Even helped hunt for what was thought to be a missing child. The INJUSTICE system does not give a flip how much money or grief it causes the victim’s family to have this crap delayed and delayed, and then finally some anti-death penalty justice will void the sentence and give life with parole, which means more grief to fight the suckers. And criminals have MORE rights that the victim or victim’s family!

Then you have my own horror story, which took place a few months before this one. 16 year old son, never in trouble with school or LEO, average 12 year old, yes he was developmentally delayed, his voice had not even cracked and he was 16. With in site of home is ambushed by a local sociopath and beat to death with a two ft section of 4x4 so the prep can see what it FELT LIKE TO KILL, 16 blows, first blow killed him. Went and bragged about it, took his buds to the crime scene, 1 of them had enough sense to call the cops. He stood up on the top of the hill the RR tracks ran on watching the investigation, when pointed out RAN. Caught, took 2 years for a bad plea deal. I’m fighting my first of 6 parole hearings just 10 months later. Good thing google had just started, I used all the stats I could to keep his butt in prison until he maxed his ‘bad behavior’ time out. Now he walks the streets of TN a free man, and I CCW now. He threatened from jail to kill any one who testified against him. I am his #1 target.

And that DUMB news paper from the article has linked the
ENTIRE state data base of CCW carriers in it.

This one is much older but it goes to show that when evil wants to kill they use any weapon to do it, not just a gun. Instead of going to the chair as they were supposed to do liberal anti-death penalty judges voided it to life with parole. Now the 1 sick sister is all that is left to fight for justice.

Murder In Memphis, true store of how Deborah Groseclose was murder by men her husband hired. She COOKED to death in the trunk of her car in the 100+ temps of summer in Memphis. After being beaten, stabbed, raped, and finally strangled enough for her to pass out. Then put in the trunk of her own car where she COOKED TO DEATH!

There’s a quote somewhere, maybe others could help me with it -

when the law exists to protect the wicked from the innocent, you know the end of your society is near.

They should change the name of their organization to:

“Moms that demanding unrestrained entry of rapists and pedophiles into everyone’s home”

Don’t know of a quote, but do know it means REVELATIONS is soon to happen, just waiting for GOD to tell Gabe to go blow that Rapture Horn.

Also from the Bible, when right shall become wrong, and wrong shall become right, you have a prophecy full filled.

Found it - from Atlas Shrugged:

“When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion- When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing- when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors- when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you- when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice- you may know that your society is doomed.”

I’m having a heck of a time looking for suppressor and threaded barrel information and businesses.

Prehaps I should look at Instagram and Facebook.

And? Actually, I'm shocked and impressed they'd share that little tidbit.
