If you follow any gun related pages on Facebook, you’ve probably seen this link making the rounds today. It’s a puff piece, written to get people worked up and it seems like it’s working. A couple things: Facebook may announce company policy changes for gun-related pages in the coming weeks They MAY make an announcement about changes, and I MAY find a breifcase filled with 10lbs of $20 bills today. The social network has been under …
