Etsy Bans Most Gun Accessories From Being Sold On Site
As of Tuesday, e-commerce company Etsy has banned all gun accessories that attach to a firearm.
“Etsy has long prohibited the sale of weapons, including guns and most gun parts,” an Etsy spokesperson told The Daily Wire. “We are expanding enforcement to include all gun parts and accessories that attach to a firearm.”
“We take the safety of our marketplace very seriously, and we regularly revisit our policies and make adjustments in accordance with industry, legal, and regulatory standards,” the spokesperson added.
Sellers were given two weeks notice before the ban was implemented.
A Etsy seller by the handle UniqueWood220 posted two weeks ago that an Etsy “Shop Management and Marketing Specialist” reached out to inform him that his decorative gun grips are no longer allowed to be sold on the site.
