eBay Removes Gun Fundraising Auction of Jim Carrey’s Autograph

Anti-gun eBay did it again.  Months ago a creative seller listed an “assault rock” in an auction to donate towards the NRA.  The listing was removed within a few days declaring the rock an “assault weapon”.

This week another creative entrepreneur listed an autographed photo of Jim Carrey in response to the bigot’s anti-gun rant video, this was in the description:

I’m selling this Jim Carrey Autographed B&W 8X10 Photo (mint condition) in hopes that I sell it for enough to buy a GUN to protect my family.

I’m thinking of getting the Glock G30S .45 ACP Pistol which retails for $640 U.S. Hopefully I can get at least that much for the autographed photo. If it sells for more than I’ll get a laser sight for it and take some gun safety classes and get my “concealed carry” permit.

I lost all respect for Mr. Carrey after he released his “Cold Dead Hands” video mocking responsible gun owners and Charlton Heston.

I believe in the 2nd Amendment and my rights shall not be infringed! From MY cold dead hands Mr. Carrey!

 

On Mar-26-13 at 04:02:40 PDT, seller added the following information:

I took a screenshot of the auction Tuesday and it was at $300, I checked again Wednesday afternoon and it was over $800.  Now, mysteriously, the auction was removed.  Go figure.

******UPDATE******

The auction was relisted for a short moment Thursday stating:

I’m selling this Jim Carrey Autographed B&W 8X10 Photo (mint condition) for purposes I cannot explain because it might be against eBay’s “Terms & Conditions”. Thank you.

    Not to defend feebay but they might of removed it because he listed it as and autographed picture but then later added the information that it was a preprint. Autographs are actually signed by the celeb, those items were actually in the celebrities hands. I preprint is just a copy…the “autograph” is part of the picture. In other words; its a fake, just a celeb endorsed fake. Preprints fetch about the price of what the plain photo would…like $10-15. Real autographs of A-list celebs fetch hundreds. If he didn’t say that it was a preprint in the original listing then it was a fraudulent auction. If that was in the original auction then sue feebay. He wasn’t selling a gun and ebay has no right to dictate how much an auction goes for or what he does with the money.

        Would like to see the email ebay sent. They can’t dictate what he spends the money on. He probably can’t but he should get a lawyer.

        Ebay needs a good lawsuit, they have gotten to big. I used to sell alot on there but then they created so many unfair rules for sellers. Dictating what you could charge for shipping, sometimes it was less than the actual cost. Then they said if you have multiple items you could only list one at a time. Then they bought Paypal and made it the only source of payment you may accept. The list goes on and on. There fees can be as high as almost 20% of the items sell price.

        There requirement to accept paypal only is so they can charge another fee and is an unfair business practice it should have brought a lawsuit from the government but didnt. I rarely sell on there anymore. Sellers should get a huge class action suit going.

    Too funny! Now there are numerous preprint autographed photos on Ebay with various titles such as “Ebay hates Freedom!” and “I need to buy ammo!” One even donates 20% of the auction to the NRA! Awesome!
