(NEW YORK POST) The gun market is booming on Instagram.

The popular photo-posting  app – bought last year by Facebook for $1 billion – has become the go-to place for folks looking to buy and sell firearms on the Internet, boasting a web of private owners and professional dealers with shotguns, handguns and assault rifles for sale on the open market, according to a report by The Daily Beast.

Instagram is not an e-commerce site, and has no stated policy barring firearm sales.
