North Carolina gun shop’s ad banned on Facebook

by  |  published on November 17, 2014

A North Carolina gun shop recently posted an ad on Facebook – but it was taken down almost immediately, according to WSOC-TV.

The Hyatt Gun Shop in Charlotte recently posted the ad online for a Veterans Day sale on safes and vaults.

Owner Larry Hyatt told WSOC-TV the ad was posted because the store didn’t feel like it violated Facebook’s policy on banning ads for weapons.

Facebook said ads cannot indirectly link back to pages where guns can be purchased.

The social media giant said the ad violated the policy and wrote, “The decision is final. Please consider this the end of our correspondence about your ad.”

A WSOC-TV reporter has tried to get in contact with Facebook to clarify, but has not heard back.
