Gun Grab: Facebook is Censoring a New Jersey Gun Store

WeShoot, a range and gun store, in the Jersey Shore area is facing significant social media censorship. Mark Abady, one of WeShoot’s owners, claims that the store has been facing repeated cases of Facebook trying to censor the gun store’s social media page. 

According to Abady, the store has been facing ban threats, content blocks, and shadow banning. In a recent post published on Facebook, Abady said the following: 

Here we go again.  They ban me and removed two posts from our Weshoot account, which is a brick-and-mortar Federal and State Licensed Firearms Dealer, and according to their policies we are allowed [to post].  Every post we make, has the picture of our store and license, and we mention on every post that we are a brick and mortar licensed dealer.  We’ve even submitted copies of the license to FACEBOOK, and notarized paperwork to proof that we are a legit business, and the Censorship continues.

In a similar vein, on its Facebook page, WeShoot detailed its predicament below: 

🚨 Update: Facebook has temporarily restricted our ability to post images for a month. Even after presenting evidence of compliance with their guidelines, it appears their firearm-related bias led to this decision. We’d like to remind everyone that Meta policies do recognize exceptions for licensed brick-and-mortar dealers and official websites. We’ve always adhered to community standards and never engaged in sales on social platforms.

While our posting might be limited for now, we encourage you to stay updated with us on Instagram @WESHOOT_EXPERIENCE. Thanks for your continued support! 🙏

A day after publishing the aforementioned post, the company went fully transparent about its current censorship situation:

Dear Followers, Customers, and Members!

Despite META’s policies permitting firearms posts, Facebook has chosen to restrict us from sharing images. To ensure we can keep serving and updating you, we’re shifting our attention to (formerly known as Twitter). Join us and continue to support us at under our handle @WESHOOTUSA.

We will limit our posting on Facebook, due to the fact that there is a possibility that our page will be shot down by META in the future, as they’ve done before in the past;  that’s why we kindly ask you to follow us on our platforms.

To Mark Zuckerberg [ @Zuck ] and the META Board of Dictators… sorry, Directors: Policies should be clear, fair, and consistently enforced. 𝐋𝐢𝐦𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐟𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐝𝐨𝐦 𝐨𝐟 𝐬𝐩𝐞𝐞𝐜𝐡, 𝐞𝐬𝐩𝐞𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐲 𝐰𝐡𝐞𝐧 𝐢𝐭 𝐠𝐨𝐞𝐬 𝐚𝐠𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐭 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐩𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐢𝐞𝐬, 𝐬𝐞𝐭𝐬 𝐚 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐫𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐜𝐞𝐝𝐞𝐧𝐭. Many have sacrificed immensely to protect these rights. Keep in mind that your grandkids might not enjoy the freedom of speech right that many gave their life to secure. Hope META will reconsider its policies and stop catering to the anti-american mobs.

And to show proof of compliance, here is the most updated version of META’s Policy for restricted goods, which can be verified at this link:

To encourage safety and deter potentially harmful activities, we prohibit attempts by individuals, manufacturers, and retailers to purchase, sell, raffle, gift, transfer or trade certain goods and services on our platform. We do not tolerate the exchange or sale of any drugs that may result in substance abuse covered under our policies below.   𝑩𝒓𝒊𝒄𝒌-𝒂𝒏𝒅-𝒎𝒐𝒓𝒕𝒂𝒓 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒐𝒏𝒍𝒊𝒏𝒆 𝒓𝒆𝒕𝒂𝒊𝒍𝒆𝒓𝒔 𝒎𝒂𝒚 𝒑𝒓𝒐𝒎𝒐𝒕𝒆 𝒇𝒊𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒓𝒎𝒔, alcohol, and tobacco items available for sale off of our services; however, we restrict visibility of this content for minors.

As you can see, we are exempt from their restrictions, since we are a FEDERAL and STATE FIREARMS DEALER LICENSEE, with a BRICK-AND-MORTAR Location and Website. We have also sent META notarized paperwork and copy of ID and the FFL License, and almost every post includes a picture that has a copy of our FFL License, and pictures of our store, and mentions that we are compliant with their policies.

This is an abuse on behalf of META and Facebook, and we fighting back!

New Jersey is one of the most anti-gun states in the union. According to Guns & Ammo magazine’s best states for gun owners rankings, New Jersey occupies a horrible 49th place. However, there are limits to Gun Control Inc.’s tyranny. Because of the judicial realignment at the federal level, it has become somewhat harder for gun controllers to pass gun control measures. 

Instead, they will lean on Big Tech and other corporate actors to implement anti-gun policies. That’s how this war against guns is being carried out in the 21st century. It would behoove the Second Amendment community to adapt to this reality and push for legislation that limits corporations’ ability to hurt gun owners and vendors.
