No guns on Facebook – level 2

04-02-2016 15:00

After a series of mass shootings in the USA, Barack Obama announced regulations on gun sales. The ban covers Facebook, used by 1.59 billion people every month, and Instagram, used by 300 million people. People will not be able to advertise guns on their personal profiles. Shops with licenses, however, will be able to continue to advertise.

Difficult words: announce (to say something officially), ban (a rule which says that you must not do something), advertise (to tell people about something that they can buy).

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

What do you think about this new rule?
