BBQ Fingers wrote:I understand why they would do this at this time. I hope it returns without too much controversy. The truth is that they make little money on these classifieds adds and they stand more to gain by shutting it down than keeping it going. I hope this helps take KSL out of any political crosshairs that may arise as these gun classifieds are hot topics with gun Contol advocates. Gun Contol advocates have probably never had as much power as they do right now.
If nothing else I feel like removing the adds is an example of showing a little respect to those families mourning their losses. As I see other adds for guns in other sections I feel these people are not showing much consideration to the sensitivity of the situation. In some offices in the US today and tomorrow people are going to be using these adds as examples of how easy it is for anyone (bat shiz crazy or model citizen) to get a gun in their hands. Hopefully by being proactive we'll have this service back soon.
I just want to add that I love living in Utah were we have as many gun rights as we do!

I highly encourage all of you to do the same, we need to voice our opinions to these businesses and aware them of the consequences of their decision.

Cheaper Than Dirt! will Resume Online Firearm Sales Pending Policy Changes
Cheaper Than Dirt! recently announced that it was temporarily suspending online sales of firearms pending a review of its order processing and procedures. Well-known for its ability to process and ship orders within 24 hours, online sales have skyrocketed to a point where it may take up to 72 hours for firearms and other items to ship.
"In light of recent events, we believe it is prudent to review our policies and procedures to ensure we can continue to provide the products and firearms our customers demand," said Chief Operations Officer Roberta Wilson. "We will resume online sales once we update our process and continue as we have always done by shipping firearms only to FFL dealers."
Ms. Wilson closed with, "As a long-time supporter of the Second Amendment, we will continue to serve the needs of the firearms community while ensuring our unsurpassed level of quality and customer service."
Cheaper Than Dirt! prides itself on being America's Ultimate Shooting Sports Discounter since 1993. Cheaper Than Dirt! boasts over 100,000 items available for purchase through their Web site and catalog. Articles, photos and videos appear daily on the Shooter's Log at www.CheaperThanDirt.com/blog.

One thing that really irritates me is that they addressed my e-mail handle when I signed my original complaint with my actual name which basically tells me that they didn't even read my complaint.

But right now we still have the same rights we had before they removed these sections. There are still legal and approved areas to buy and sell used and new guns. KSL (*****, Cheaper than Dirt, and other businesses) are just exercising their rights. Craigslist hasn't allowed guns on it since pretty much when they started and nobody is boycotting them (except for the thousands of KSL users ). I love Target but they don't even carry guns and nobody is boycotting them. (I hate Wal-Mart, and I heard they have removed some AR's from their floors and websites. Please boycott them! )
In my opinion these companies are simply putting ethics before profits. That is something I will support.
Every gun I have ever owned has come from the KSL classifieds or family. I looked at their firearms and hunting classifieds several times a day. I don't want those classifieds gone forever. I don't own a handgun, semi auto gun, or large capacity magazines. I also don't want to see any of these things restricted. I am glad to see KSL and others simply showing that they are aware of the seriousness of the issues and reviewing their part in the problems and solutions.
Guys, give KSL and others a break. Everyone knows if you want to upgrade your duck boat you’re not only going to craigslist to sell or buy. If you want to write and complain or express thoughts on the gun control, KSL is not the place. Forums like this are good places, or if you are really serious write your government officials. These are the guys that are going to be deciding if I will be able to by an AR15 with a 30rd magazine next year, not KSL. Has there ever been a better time?
