Will eBay allow standard capacity (hi-caps) for sale after 9-13?

Thoughts?

eBay doesn't want to get its name splashed all over the papers for being a party to someone in a state where "high-caps" are banned buying their verboten goodies from another state where they're not.

Federal AWB sunset means nothing as eBay is headquartered in California. California law prohibits sale of certain firearms-related items.

Please, please, please Arnold clean our state up. Can we at least vote Boxer out of office? Feinstein is next.

I contacted PayPal (very closely aligned to Ebay) on their decision about this, and they said it was strictly a legal issue. I hope this is the case, as it makes it a little more bearable than knowing that they are banning because of moral objections.

I am sorry but I do not believe them.

If they were strictly worried about legalities why are the selling

A) SAPI plates ( all of them are illeagle, only sold to goverment and they requiere them to be destroyed to be demilled and sold as surplus

B) Interceptor body armour ( 90% or more are illeagal, they were only a few sold to civilians the rest to goverment )

C) Real MREs ( all of the real MREs are stolen from the goverment and the goverment has asked ebay to stop selling them )

As soon as they explain these illegal sales I will believe that they care about legalities.

Yeah, I was going to bold the 'I hope' part. I agree with you completly

Because they, like me, have a hard time keeping up with what's legal and what isn't.

But you're right; they probably won't let folks list high-cap mags as part of their general anti-gun/drug/postage meter/lockpick/surveillance gear/tobacco (http://pages.ebay.com/help/sell/item_allowed.html) stance.

I'm inclined to believe it isn't a legal issue, it is a CYA issue. They are cowards more than pinkos. Maybe.
