A recent investigation has revealed that the social media and news forum Reddit hosts firearms sales — and their gun market is growing. In the last six months, “Redditors” sold and traded more than 1,000 guns on the website, mainly through a subreddit called GunsForSale. The most notable of these trades occurred in 2011, when a Redditor got official permission from Reddit to engrave the firm’s alien logo on nearly 100 assault rifles. Reddit instructs moderators to comply with federal and state laws, but some users’ comments reportedly suggest they may be exploiting a loophole.
