GunsAmerica: Where America buys and sells guns. Facebook: Where Syrian-based Jihadists buy and sell guns.
For the record, GunsAmerica doesn’t allow known, suspected or convicted terrorists, Jihadists, militants belonging to any criminal organization to sell weapons on our boards. Can Facebook say that? Nope, no it cannot.
According to The Foreign Desk, Syrian-based Jihadists are using Facebook to buy, sell and trade a variety of small arms, including machine guns and rocket launchers.
The publication reports that on a Facebook page titled, “The first weapons market in the Idleb countryside,” Jihadists posted photos of CIA-sourced weapons, instructing interested and prospective purchasers to contact them via Whatsapp, an internet and cellular messaging app.
The page’s listings include: AGS-17 Soviet-era grenade launcher for $3,800, TOW and MANPAD missile launchers, 105 mm cannon shells, among other munitions.
Users can also ask the purveyors of the page for specific weapons, as one individual did, “Quick friends, I need a gun with a silencer.” Members of this page are linked to various militant Islamic organizations, e.g. Ahrar Al-Sham and the Islamic Front.
So, there you have it. If you’re still using Facebook to buy, sell or trade guns just know that you’re not in the best of company. Instead of using a social network that is (a) growing increasingly anti-gun and (b) unregulated to the point of it being a liability for buyers and sellers, you might consider selling your guns on GunsAmerica — FOR FREE!
That’s right. As you may or may not have heard, you can now list guns for sale on GunsAmerica for free, so long as it is at the local level. We call this game-changing feature: FREE LOCAL.
