No guns on Facebook – level 1

04-02-2016 15:00

Mass shootings happen in the USA. Because of this, Barack Obama makes new rules. The rules control guns.

1.59 billion people use Facebook. 300 million people use Instagram. Some of these people sell guns. They use Facebook and Instagram. With the new rules, people cannot sell the guns.

However, the rule is only for people. Special shops can sell guns online.

Difficult words: mass shooting (a situation when somebody shoots a lot of people), rule (a text which tells you what you can do and cannot do), sell (to give something for money).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think about this new rule?
