    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.

    NukemJim,

    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 stance.

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