Facebook Introduces Policy to Help Protect Children from Guns

Today, Facebook announced an initiative that will block children from viewing firearms sales ads, inform users of legal and responsible approaches to gun transactions, and help enforce the law by deleting posts that encourage no-background check or illegal sales.

We were pleased to work with Facebook to develop a new set of policies that protects the safety of its users, educates its users about lawful and responsible firearms transactions, and helps prevent illegal activity from occurring.
