Facebook to everyone: We’re just going to keep doing what we were doing and obey the law

So, Moms Demand Traction threatened to hold their breath until they turned blue unless facebook stopped allowing users to engage in lawful commerce. Facebook released a statement with language that appears to have satisfied the Mad Moms, even though the statement is more like we’ll keep doing what we do but make sure no one says “no background check” in their posting. And the moms are claiming it as a victory, which marks the first time I think they’ve sad they had one in a while. Meanwhile, the Brady Campaign To Cling To Relevancy says facebook is not going to do much to stop sales of guns without background checks.

The NRA responds saying the Moms were trying to shutdown free speech and that they failed.

NSSF responds: Facebook’s clarification will not affect the lawful commerce in firearm and ammunition products for NSSF members and their customers.

And this is true. Nothing changed really. Hollow victory is hollow.

Now, listen guys on my side, let’s not turn this into Starbucks part 2.

    Instructions unclear: Are you saying I shouldn’t sling my (in NJ, anyway) assault rifle Marlin Model 60 over my shoulder when perusing Facebook on my computer at home, because such OC will induce PSH?

    I think more that we shouldn’t do thinks that could help snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

    Gosh, any other “groups” joining “moms” in this bullying campaign?

    When is Facebook going to go-away like AOL? It can’t last and there’s really no reason for anybody to support the Zuckerberg kid’s other efforts like Amnesty and “social justice” just because it’s popular in Palo Alto.

    Facebook – the final refuge of the hopeless, self-aggrandizing hedonist.
