Offerup - Weapons central

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.

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".
