Firearms Policy Coalition wall is still there.
David A. Keene is still there.

For those of you that support FaceBook you may want to look at this link

http://www.naturalnews.com/038484_Gandhi_quote_Facebook_censorship.html

And note this part of the article regardless of where it's from:

Facebook is running an across-the-board PURGE of pro-gun accounts. A huge number of accounts are all being systematically disabled or suspended, with all content being wiped clean.

No, they are not.

Quashing free speech on a private website? Hmm, they'll be going after high profile girls next.

Oh yeah, I'm going to believe the crap asserted from a website known for running advertorials about so-called miracle foods, running pyramid schemes and owned by a Taiwan-based company. :rolleyes:

No. Facebook is not closing "pro-gun accounts". That's a complete lie.

I can attest from recent personal experience that this is not true. As much as Facebook sucks I don't think they want to court that sort of misery.

There's over 20 people listed in this article. Ask some of them if it really happened. They're saying Facebook has stopped doing this now based on complaints...

Don't deactivate your account, post this pic, and tell everyone that FB is squashing history.

Shooting USA'a Facebook page is up and running. Why would they NOT be touched, and others deleted?

They disabled a lot of accounts of people I know. Mostly higher status people.

I'd bet it had more to do with violating Facebook's terms of service than their pro-gun views.

Some people have a hard time remaining civil when they're passionate about something, and engage in insulting/threatening/bigoted behavior when painted into a corner.

BTW, what does "higher status people" mean? Is this 18th century England?

Everyone is attacking the source, but were the accounts really suspended by Facebook or no?

I don't believe that FB is deleting accounts just because of pro-gun views. Accounts are most likely being deleted due to some other violation of their Terms of Service.

However, they have every right to delete any account for any reason whatsoever. It is their site and their servers. In a private forum, one actually has no expection to freedom of speech or expression.

It's not a rumor, Amber Lyon's facebook page was also shut down because of a ghandi quote someone posted on her wall. The quote was " among many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest". Many of you deny, and say your account is still up, but guess what, you don't have a voice, hence not making you a threat. Amber Lyon is a credible journalist, I suggest you all listen to her interview on the Joe Rogan podcast, or at least google her. Here is her twitter, a few tweets down is the facebook shutdown.https://twitter.com/AmberLyon

I posted the quote and a few minutes later there was a knock on the door. It was the Facebook police coming to take my firstborn. I gave her up mainly because she's constipated and is raising a horrible commotion.

Half an hour later they dropped her off, saying due to the number of complaints it was ok to post Ghandi quotes after all, and that everything had been cleared up. My firstborn seemed happy.

PRIVATE COMPANIES AND INDIVIDUALS are not yet bound by 2A; gun owners are not any form of 'protected class' such as race or national origin or religion. That being so, companies and individuals are permitted to make their decisions based on whatever they like or their stockholders prefer. The available response to such businesses is to choose to patronize them or not, and to choose to tell such businesses why, or not.
