Thanks to hundreds of thousands of supporters like you, Facebook just announced a plan to crack down on illegal gun sales!
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 got its start on Facebook, when like-minded moms came together to make a difference in the aftermath of the Newtown tragedy. Facebook has taken a major step forward to prevent guns from getting into the wrong hands, and we will work together to hold them accountable to these promises going forward.
