Facebook lifts gun group ban

A top Virginia gun-rights organization is back on Facebook after another “enforcement error” from the social media company.

The Virginia Citizens Defense League’s Facebook page was restored on Saturday after being banned from the platform at the end of January. The company, which had insisted that the ban was reviewed and final, conceded that it made a mistake in taking down the page for the second time in two months.

“After further review, we concluded that this page was removed as an enforcement error and have since restored it,” a Facebook spokesperson said.

The company has flip-flopped on banning the group several times over the past month. At the end of January, Facebook banned the group’s page before saying it “was removed in error” and apologizing.
