    E-Bay changes their policy regarding firearms parts sales, reloading components, etc. Another Dem-o-rat ploy? Thank goodness for The High Road. VP Halprin is a Wuss. :cuss:


    Dear (HiVelocity in SC),

    Thank you for your recent email to Matt Halprin in regard to changes to
    our Firearms, Weapons and Knives policy. He has asked that I review your
    email and respond on his behalf.

    At eBay we take the safety of our community and our marketplace very
    seriously. We have a Trust and Safety team which consists of more than
    2,000 experts in online security and safety who are located around the
    globe. This team is dedicated to ensuring that our marketplace is a safe
    and trusted place for buyers and sellers to engage in trade.

    We value an open and transparent marketplace; if items are legal to buy
    and sell in an unrestricted manner we allow them on our site. However,
    there are some items that while legal, may not be safe for our
    marketplace. In these instances, our applicable policies go beyond the
    law to ensure that our marketplace is safe.

    Currently we do not allow actual firearms on the site. After careful
    consideration our executives and our Trust and Safety team determined
    that any item required to fire a gun has no place on eBay. All of our
    policies are under constant review. As the Internet and the way our
    communities use the Internet evolves, our policies and our marketplace
    must evolve with it. We determined that this policy change was in the
    best interest of promoting a safe marketplace for all members.

    I understand your frustration regarding this matter and apologize for
    the inconvenience it caused you.


    Office of the President
