Default An announcement from ebay.

Hello everyone…In mid-August, we will be updating our Firearms, Weapons and Knives Policy to place more restrictions around gun-related items. Once these changes take effect, we will prohibit listings of any firearm part that is required for the firing of a gun. This includes items like bullet tips, brass casings and shells, barrels, slides, cylinders, magazines, firing pins, trigger assemblies, etc. Please read the Firearms, Weapons and Knives Policy for more details on our current policy.

As you may know, eBay does not allow the listing of any items which are regulated by individual states or the federal government; however, there are still a large number of firearm-related parts that are legal and are widely available in retail stores. These items have also historically been allowed on eBay.

After learning that some items purchased on eBay may have been used in the tragedy at Virginia Tech in April 2007, we felt that revisiting our policies was not only necessary, but the right thing to do. After much consideration, the Trust & Safety policy team – along with our executive leaders at eBay Inc. – have made the decision to further restrict more of these items than federal and state regulations require.

This new update continues to encourage safety among our community members and brings our policies in the U.S. and Canada in closer alignment with our existing policies in other markets around the globe.

Sincerely,

Matt Halprin
Vice President, Trust & Safety

Default E-bay

I already went to the e-bay forums and posted my feelings on this decision. I will no longer do business with e-bay and would encourage all others to do the same. If we hit them in the wallet they MIGHT listen. They are a publicly traded company and as such are answerable to the stock holders. If the stock holders lose money they will call for heads.

BOYCOTT E-BAY!

It is such an idiotic thing to do. I'm sure thousands of things bought on ebay have been used in crimes, but guns are so scary

Lets see, I bought a lamp on EBAY and broke it over my wifes head... Maybe they should revisit that rule??

My wife bought Stiletto's and kicked me in the nuts... I would surely like to see those banned as well.

Here is another way for the gov to control gun items. Ebay will figure out they didn't something wrong if everyone stops selling/buying items on there.

Also I found out that EBAY shut down or bought Yahoo Online Auction. Ebay wants to buy all the online auctions so they would be the Super Power on online auctions. They want total control... I saw that on a TV spot on MSNBC 2 or 3 months ago. The kid that did the shooting did not buy anything from ebay!!!! This is another excuse to cut gun items out of ebay..... What horse sh&^!

If he did do that. It would be all over the news!!! Another excuse for the Dem to yank our rights from us!!!!

I am sick and tried of all this bull. everyone is trying to pull!!!!!!!!!!!

Not to mention there are plenty of forums based around whatever gun you are looking for. Glocktalk, saiga, sig etc etc. People are always selling there wares on those forums.
