Some people are advertising stickers of gun makers’ logos to sell guns on Facebook, in violation of the company’s marketplace policies.
A new investigation by The Wall Street Journal found listings that appeared to advertise stickers promoting gun makers such as Ruger. The Journal said that when it contacted the sellers, they said they actually intended to sell guns.
A Mississippi seller posted a $450 sticker sporting the Glock logo and asked interested buyers to message them privately for more details. When The Journal contacted the seller privately, he said he was really selling a .40-caliber pistol.
Three other sellers told The Journal that they were indeed selling guns, not stickers. The newspaper said it also found more than 40 results for “gun sticker” and “stickers” that included photos of gun makers’ logos.
