It would seem that KSL feels that they play a part of the “ease of access” to firearms in Utah and they are no longer comfortable playing that role. Today they sent out an email to everyone who has listings in the firearm section of their classifieds with the announcement. Below is the full text of that email:
Dear KSL Classifieds customer,
Like everyone else in the country, the management of KSL is profoundly saddened by the tragedy in Connecticut. In the wake of this and other similar incidents, important questions have been raised about the ease of access to guns. These questions deserve time for careful consideration and we are confident that an appropriate resolution will be found. Accordingly, KSL has temporarily suspended firearms listings on KSL.com classifieds. We recognize that this may inconvenience responsible citizens who have used this service, but we feel this is an important step while these broader societal issues are examined.
You have received this message because you currently have at least one listing in the affected categories – as part of this decision your listing has been suspended. If you have paid to feature your listings please reach out to your respective account executive to work through refunds for the remaining days in the month.
We appreciate your patience and understanding while we evaluate our options.
We value your insight, please send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org
KSL Classifieds Team
