These are real, common-sense policies — and they’re going to make Facebook safer for all users.
Facebook’s plan includes several practical measures to drastically reduce the chances of illegal gun sales on its platform, such as letting users report suspicious gun posts, deleting posts that describe illegal sales and requiring owners of gun-sales related pages to acknowledge the laws that apply to them.
This victory marks a huge step forward in the history of our movement — and it all took shape in less than a month, thanks to you!

Moms Demand Action has created The Mother’s Dream Quilt Project to symbolize the human toll of gun violence in America, and mothers’ shared dream of a country where all our children will be safe.
