Moms Demand Action is taking a stand against social media gun sales in the best way possible, a Facebook ‘Look Back’ style video highlighting some frightening examples of what people are allowed to do on social media.
Anyone, regardless of intent, is able to purchase firearms through Facebook and other social media sites without a background check, and in fact, many users even advertise that they are not running one! Many groups and pages exist for the sole purpose of buying and trading weapons, allowing the unregulated transfer of firearms from person to person.
Watch this video, read the comments left by these “gun enthusiasts,” and if you have not thrown your computer through a window in rage sign the petition asking Facebook to take action against social networking gun proliferation as Craigslist, Google+, and eBay have already done. The petition asks that Facebook’s powers-that-be “put an end to this completely unregulated social media gun show and prohibit gun sales” immediately.
