Perhaps, but ebay has always claimed to be a venue, much like the classified
ads in the newspaper. Ebay has never (from anything I have read) ever come
out and told the reason(s) they stopped the listing of firearms. When fear
starts to make decisions such as the firearms decision on ebay, something is
really wrong.
