On Wednesday, March 5, Facebook announced a “series of new educational and enforcement efforts for people discussing the private sale of regulated items.” Offers posted on Facebook that indicate a “willingness to evade or help others evade the law, including private sellers of firearms in the US specifying ‘no background check required’” will be prohibited.
