That's news to me. I thought that site was a regular free-for-all.

Same here. I don't use it but I talk to people that buy them from there. Perhaps they just don't police it very well.

Craigs list is, primarily, a community policed site. Anyone can flag an item they see that they think is inappropriate. When an item gets enough flags it is automatically removed.....period. So you either have to get a BB gun before it's flagged or look in areas of the country where folk are more tolerant. I have found alot of nice guns on CL.....back when I had the time and patience to do a national search....everyday.  Confused
I did get burned a couple times as well. I have searched CL recently and still found a bunch of BB guns on there......none I was interested in. I'm sure I'd find some if I was real dedicated.  I don't do it more than once a month.....just don't want to spend the time. I have plenty of guns now, for heaven's sake.
All I'm for is the liberty of the individual.
