Facebook Bans Gun Accessories Ads from Children

Facebook announced last Friday that it will stop showing weapon accessory advertisements to users below 18 years old.

While guns and gun modification ads are already prohibited on the social network, Facebook says that accessories like holsters, belt accessories, as well as any products mounted on guns for the purposes of illuminating, magnifying or focusing will only be shown to users 18 and above starting June 21.

The move is said to be line with discussions in the US on gun violence and school shootings.
