Connecticut's two U.S. Senators are praising Facebook for banning the private sale of firearms on their social networking sites. Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal say Facebook is taking a powerful stand against gun violence, and will make communities safer by making sure only law-abiding citizens can get their hands on guns. They are calling on other sites and social media to follow this example because the fight against gun violence is not something that any one person or organization can take on alone. The Senators also touted Facebook's decision last year to no longer allow posts that have a clear intent to evade the law.
