Mike Yardley


Firearms blogger suspended from Facebook for posting picture of antique British shotgun: Mike Yardley, a firearms blogger who runs positiveshooting.com, was temporarily suspended from posting or commenting on Facebook for 24 hours after he posted a picture of "a traditional British side by side shotgun." Facebook sent Yardley a notification indicating his post had violated the platform's community standards on guns, animals and other regulated goods. "This is despicable. It is a limitation on my free speech and my right as a writer to write," tweeted Yardley. "It's a big deal." The picture appears to remain up on Yardley's Facebook page, but he has not posted anything new since.
