GunListings: A craigslist for guns

picture-9-27-tm.jpg

GunListings.com is a craigslist style website to trade guns, ammo and other shooting gear. Zach Terhark, a 20 year old college student from Iowa and owner of GunListings, says:

Last year I was browsing craigslist.org and I thought I would search for a shotgun because I was in the market for a new one. I then realized that craigslist bans guns. I then go to google to search for a craigslist dedicated to guns, and there were none to be found. At that moment I was determined to make a website where people could buy and sell guns to others in their community for free.

It looks quite useful.

    What are the rules for private-to-private interstate transfer of guns? Can you do it, or do you need the ship via federally licensed dealers? Sounds like a legal nightmare to me trying to keep a list like that clean.

    You are right about armslist, but according to the gunlistings.org info, they started about 6 months before armslist. Gunlistings.org also claims to be the original on their facebook page.

    Armslist is cool,

    Patriotslist has that “patriotic” thing going on.

    After digging around in there a little bit, definitely more than 30, some cool stuff, don’t see any jewelry? Looks like you list your own city in there too so it doesn’t matter where you live, the pictures are monsters too.

    They all have pawn shop listings in them, they have a lot of guns at pawn shops. I personally don’t care where they come from.

    Can’t have enough options for GUNS, the more, the better!

    TERMS OF USE: “IV. I will not use Armslist.com for any illegal purpose.”

    Isn’t this like the question on the 4473 “Are you a fugitive from justice?”

    How many crooks would answer “YES” to this silly question.

    By the way kid, as a matter of law, YOU CANNOT disclaim gross negligence. Sell some nut a gun who uses it to mow down a soccer mom and her kids and you will lose everything you own, or might own in the future, to a civil judgment.

      As clever as you think you are with that comment, I was at my local gun store and overheard the salesman telling another customer about how a guy was filling out his form and asked if having a warant in Texas meant that he was a fugitive. The salesman said “let me go check” and he went and called the police who promptly checked and picked him up for an outstanding warrant in Texas. So yes, there are people that dumb.

    certainly like your website however you need to check the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to inform the reality then again I will definitely come again again.
