Here is the responce that I got from ebay this morning.


Hello Sherman,

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.

Sincerely,
Rebekah Long
Office of the President

Mr. Halprin,
I just read about your new policy toward firearms related parts. It is a
shame that you guys are so intent to regulate legally own objects
through your website. With the many issues that I and many others have
had with your website in the last couple years you are really working
hard to push people away from using eBay. It is a shame and was a one
time such a great tool.
Thank You
Sherman

SES50,
We are all getting the same response. I guess that's expected! :(

Here's what I got:

Copy of email sent,

Mr. Halprin,

I am very disappointed on your recent anti-gun tactic on ebay. There is absolutely no reason to not sell gun parts. You will be hurting many small businesses. Why stop the legal sales of gun parts? You might as well stop selling cars and car parts because they kill a hell of a lot more people than guns do. This is a shame and a great example of ignorance. I hope you will change this ridiculous policy and think you will be surprised at the loss of income you will receive.
Sincerely,

Ian Sexton

fair

It's seem strange that they don't have any moral objections to selling porn but a 100 year old black powder case sends them running for cover. They own paypal so if your mad at ebay include the use of paypal in there also.
