LAS VEGAS SHOOTER SOUGHT GUN THROUGH FACEBOOK

LAS VEGAS SHOOTER SOUGHT GUN THROUGH FACEBOOK

Statement from Dan Gross, president, Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence

“In March, we said Facebook’s new gun policy didn’t go far enough and we are sickened to learn that the Las Vegas shooter attempted to obtain a rifle through Facebook. The post has remained live on Facebook for a month, demonstrating the inadequacy of Facebook’s gun policy. As we said then, Facebook continues to make it too easy for dangerous people to find guns and should prohibit gun sales outright. Gun sales have no place on a social network which makes it simple to evade background checks. We warned that it was a matter of time before something like this would happen. We demand that Facebook learn from this terrible tragedy, one that it may have helped to enable, before more lives are lost because of its ridiculously weak policies, which could easily be fixed.”
