I saw a sale in LEO trades that even make me think about violating my standard self- promise of not buying anything in .40 Short&Weak, and just posted the link in the Book of Faces for those who may be interested:

AimSurplus, LLC

A couple of minutes later, I got hit by the Zuckbots.

What the fuck do I care about the community standards and laws of countries outside the US? And more importantly, why do you care, dear Facebook? And yes, I know the current administration would giggle itself out of testicles if they could ban the sale of firearms, but that is not the law.

I hit the automatic challenge decision button and somebody must have figured out they screwed up because the post got reinstated.

But now you know. You must be aware of all the laws and customs of all the governments around the world before posting to Facebook or face the consequences.

  1. If AIM Surplus is an ethical and law abiding dealer, you won’t get very far in the process without a valid FFL. And absolutely nowhere if from outside the USA without valid import documents. Assuming they have export licenses.

    Pack that in your piehole, Farcebook.

  2. What, exactly, did you try to sell?
    I do not actually think you were selling anything at all. You linked to a website that had products for sale. No intent to sell was apparent at all.
    .
    Now, I will support the book of faces removing items for sale that are potentially illegal. Craigslist and eBay will not allow the sale of magazines with more than 10 round capacity because you might ship it to CA, or another area with restrictions. (Forget which site dinged me…) That I understand, because as the conduit, they do not want any headaches. (Does not explain why they refuse to remove kiddy porn content though…)
    .
    But, linking to another website is not you selling what they advertise. That, most likely is why you got roboremoved.
    Which makes me ask, what is the ‘bot looking for? Any mention of firearms? Why does it assume you are the seller?

  3. I’ve been nicked twice for “violating community standards” in the last month or so. First time was when I shared the post from Lipsey’s on the launch of their new J-frame SMUs on Instagram (if you like J-frames you should check them out, I want 5-6 of them). Second time was when a friend was talking .32 revolvers and the lack of them on the market. I posted a screenshot of the page for the new Taurus .327 revolver and the aforementioned Lipsey J-frames and said “They’re coming back in popularity.”
    .
    Both times, the posts were nuked within a minute of being posted. Both times, I appealed. Both times, the appeals were denied in less than 5 minutes.
    .
    It makes me miss the heyday of gun forums. If not for the FB Groups I’m in (for my gym and my tractor hobby), I’d have nuked it during the 2020 fuckery and not looked back.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
