This post has been here long enough; I see no responses and that bothers me. What eBay is doing sounds to me more like taking sides with the gun haters, the antigun folks! To me is nothing but a bunch or garbage!:mad:

NO BIGGIE but I did send a Email concerning this matter.
Matt,

It is with great disgust that I send this mail to you, concerning you and your company’s decision in regards to revising your firearm’s
related restrictions that are to be applied starting in mid August 2007.

“Hello everyone…In mid-August, we will be updating our Firearms, Weapons and Knives Policy to place more restrictions around gun-related items. Once these changes take effect, we will prohibit listings of any firearm part that is required for the firing of a gun. This includes items like bullet tips, brass casings and shells, barrels, slides, cylinders, magazines, firing pins, trigger assemblies, etc. Please read the Firearms, Weapons and Knives Policy for more details on our current policy.”

I will be doing my best to buy anything possible from other vendors and refer any of my friends to do so. This is due to your companies decision concerning this matter.

Long live the USA.

Here is a copy of the e-mail I sent:

Wednesday, August 01, 2007

Mr. Halprin,

In Reference to: New Listing Restrictions on Gun Parts***
http://www2.ebay.com/aw/core/200707.shtml#2007-07-30094109

You say:
"along with our executive leaders at eBay Inc. – have made the decision to further restrict more of these items than federal and state regulations require."

Federal regulations are the law, and we all have to abide by it. But to further restrict on the already imposed restrictions is not going to do anything for you or anyone else. If every business in the country was to take the position you're taking, this country would become communist.

You all are making a bad decision. There are millions of law abiding citizens like my self that would not appreciate your position and would be offended by eBay's decisions.

You say:
"After learning that some items purchased on eBay may have been used in the tragedy at Virginia Tech in April 2007, we felt that revisiting our policies was not only necessary, but the right thing to do."

Do you really believe that by eBay having more restrictions it would have made a difference in the Virginia Tragedy? None, nada, absolutely nothing!!!! All it does is take benefits away from the law abiding men and women. Criminals don't even blink; they still get what they want.

I don't believe you're doing anything positive for the eBay community nor the United Stated as a Nation, but rather seems to me you have been conversing with the antigun fellows.

Time will tell. I say eBay business will be dropping considerably!

Why is it so hard to grasp? You can take every conceivable weapon out of the country and away from the law abiding people; and every criminal in the country would still have or be able to get the very weapons they desire; on top of that, crime would climb very fast because you would be helping the criminals by disarming the law abiding folks. Go figure!

Sincerely,

Javier O Moncada / Pastor

Mr. Halprin
It saddens me that you and your company have taken the stance... "Hello everyone…In mid-August, we will be updating our Firearms, Weapons and Knives Policy to place more restrictions around gun-related items. Once these changes take effect, we will prohibit listings of any firearm part that is required for the firing of a gun. This includes items like bullet tips, brass casings and shells, barrels, slides, cylinders, magazines, firing pins, trigger assemblies, etc. Please read the Firearms, Weapons and Knives Policy for more details on our current policy".

It is funny how a business that has lived the American dream from rags to riches would disregard law biding citizens the ability to use your site for what it was intended for. I have one question for you..Did you take off all the pornographic merchandise on the site as well? I am sure that we can relate many rapes and child molestations’ to people that bought porn form your site. Oh, I forgot how much money you make from that part of your site.

It sounds ridiculous when you put it that way, doesn’t it? No different than relating your decision to the Virginia Tec incident.

I guess today was my last ebay visit. I could only hope that you change your mind and quit punishing the masses for the actions of a few.
