Facebook is starting to earn a strong reputation as a politically correct social platform as censorship on the site continues to grow. Now comes a new policy for censoring online gun sales. According to The Blaze:
Facebook says it’s cracking down on online gun sales, with a new policy that bars private individuals from advertising or selling firearms on the world’s largest social network.
Licensed gun retailers can still advertise their businesses on Facebook, but they aren’t allowed to accept orders or transact sales on the site.
The new policy announced Friday drew praise from a gun-control group that says it has been urging Facebook to prohibit sales. Everytown for Gun Safety, which started with backing from former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, says it found cases where felons who should not have been allowed to legally buy guns were able to buy one from unlicensed sellers on Facebook.
It’s interesting that Facebook is taking another step toward becoming a government arm in the war against liberty, human rights and free choice. Several months ago Mark Zuckerberg was overheard telling German Chancellor Merkel that he would help censor negative comments about the migrant invasion of Germany.
Additionally, Facebook has been caught hundreds of times censoring, deleting or banning content or users that don’t agree with US Government policy.
For those familiar with the book “1984”, George Orwell could never have imagined such a totalitarian platform to control and censor public discourse.
