Texas Fish & Game contributing editor and blogger Dustin Ellermann, a TV “Top Shot” champion, reports Facebook rejected one of his usual gun photos, declaring it an “ad” that violates the social media site’s draconian anti-gun policy.
I’m always sharing pictures of cool gear and what not on my Facebook page and recently I posted a photo of my LaRue Tactical PredatAR that I use for 3 Gun competition loaded with an X Products 50-round drum mag. Nick at X Products thought this was cool and tried to “promote” the picture by clicking and paying a small fee. Facebook replied with this rejection:
