Perhaps it was doomed from the beginning, but the “Everytown for gun safety” Facebook page has shut down. The pro-gun admin claiming to be responsible for it closed shop over the weekend.
Eric Reed, founder of Gun Rights Across America, claims to be the one who scooped the Everytown page before the newly formed Michael Bloomberg-backed group could claim it. He told Examiner that he shut it down due to a legal notice he was given over the weekend.
The page gained more than 20,000 likes and inspired numerous other groups to launch their own Everytown pages.
