Go into "Sports and Outdoor" at the OfferUp site, and you can find tons of guns, knives, and crossbows. There is no control over these firearm sales.

I'm expecting to find new posts for Surface to Air weapons.

The same people just keep re-posting these weapons when we report them. Some hide them under "auto parts" or "electronics".

OfferUp appears to be a haven for weapons, and they suggest meeting in public places to complete the transactions. Not sure what that's about when buying and selling firearms.

If I was a kid and wanted a firearm, OfferUp would be my source of choice.

Wldhare wrote the review because of "uncontrolled weapons sales" at Offerup and attached photo s. Reviewer claimed that he or she wants Offerup to "warn others".

The most disappointing in user's experience was no control over firearm sales. Author liked the most easy to sell and buy. The author asks this business to immediately contact him/ her to briefly discuss his/ her negative experience with the company.

We collected other reviews about products and/or services offered by Offerup offerup sports and outdoors for you to read. This information may help you with your purchase decision.

If you're so offended by what other people are doing, it would help you out immensely to just concern yourself to yourself and what YOU can control. Just a suggestion....


Yes i can't believe that a person can't sell an air gun like a bb or pellet gun on this site because anyone by them off the shelf in a store they don't use gun powder


One: There is nothing illegal about selling long guns and shotguns to individuals. Check your state laws.

If you don't like it, work to have it changed instead of crying online where it does nothing.Two: I meet people in public when I buy anything online. I don't want them knowing where I live or what else I have. That is just good common sense. (something you do seem to lack, so I will give you a pass on this one)Three: If you sell a firearm to someone (rifle, shotgun, handgun, etc) who cannot legally own one, you have committed a felony.

It is your responsibility to ensure the buyer is of legal age and can legally own the firearm. If they are not, you face serious jail time and fines in the 10's of thousands of dollars.

I 100% agree with what you've said although, (and I hope you don't think i lack common sense here) would ammunition also fit into that category? Again, i know selling a gun to just anyone may be illegal but is its' ammo too?


ahh you just sound like a whiney little ***. take your liberal *** elsewhere.


Ahh poor liberals get so sad about excercising the second amendment. Go put your nose in some educational material (specifically the second amendment, then your state and local laws).

Friggin lib-tards.

This thing you call gun control, yeah we kinda all got together and decided we didn't like it and we like our rights more than your irrational fears of droves of children flocking to offer up to by fully auto ghost guns with heat seaking capabilities!


Sorry. That dog isn't going to hunt.

I own several firearms and I've yet to decide on religious "beliefs" (this is how you spell the word.)

Take a minute to review the prohibited items on Offer Up.

Then, post your comments. (after using spell check)

Got to love your religious belife being shoved down everyone's throat.

Maybe you need to learn how to spell before you worry about people shoving anything down your throat, except perhaps some knowledge

Person to person firearm purchases are completely legal depending on the state you live in. A quick google search will tell your states laws on the issue.

Nothing wrong with meeting in a public place to sell something...


Can't remove people from the equation, but governing an on-line service from supplying weapons can be done. It's a new concept named "gun control".


Quit being a ***.
