Facebook has announced that it intends to make every conservative head in America explode all at the same time. Taking an active role right behind the mostest evilest dictator of all time, President Obama, Facebook has decided to send armed agents to everyone’s home to confiscate all of their guns, ammunition and copies of the Constitution. Those who resist will be taken to FEMA camps to be either re-educated or executed.
No…none of that is actually happening, but by the end of the day the conservative nutbars of Facebook will have their idiotic friends and fans convinced it is.
What IS happening is that Facebook is banning all gun sales from its site as well as its photo-sharing offshoot, Instagram. In a move that the federal government can’t match because gun manufacturers and lobbyists own congress, Zuckerberg’s social media giant will also ban the sale of gun parts.
If you weren’t aware, I can tell you from personal experience that when a flea marketer in Alabama running a gun booth tells you they can’t sell guns the next words out of their mouths are “but I can sell you all the parts to make a gun.”
The move comes after President Obama signed executive orders tightening gun restrictions for felons, domestic abusers, the mentally ill and people on the terrorist watch list or as conservatives know them, “law-abiding citizens.”
Americans are growing wary of senseless gun violence. Taking away the Facebook platform for gun sales is a serious blow to private sales. With a billion account holders, Facebook provides the largest single-page audience in the world. Eliminating gun sales won’t solve the problem, but it won’t hurt, either.
Zuckerberg and his team have made some fairly unpopular decisions in the past, but this one might take the cake. Normal people will love it, of course, but the ammosexuals and Bundy supporters of America may decide to boycott and leave.
Wouldn’t that be a crying shame?
