Facebook cuts out gun-accessory ads for children
Children will stop seeing adverts for gun accessories on Facebook as it updates its policy from 21 June. Currently, ads for scopes, holsters, gun-mounted lights, slings, sights, belt extras, safes and many other items can be seen by anyone using Facebook. Facebook said the decision followed a "Regular review" of its policies. Tech news site The Verge speculated that the move was connected to renewed focus on gun violence in the US following a spate of school shootings. Facebook said sales of weapons, ammunitions, explosives and magazines were already restricted on its network as were those that helped people modify guns.
