Gun sales booming on Instagram

Gun sales are booming on Instagram.

The Daily Beast is reporting that the popular photo-posting app has become the go-to place for folks looking to buy and sell firearms on the Internet.

For example, users can find firearms by simply combing search words and hashtags, like #rifle or #forsalegun.

Transactions then move from the public comments arena to private conversations, either by e-mail and phone.

Instagram has not stated a policy barring gun sales.
