Want to buy a gun without a license? Try Instagram. According to a recent report from The Huffington Post, there is a “seemingly thriving marketplace of amateur gun sellers” on the photo-sharing app.

A report from The Daily Beast also found that a number of Instagramers are offering guns for sale on the site.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says you can sell firearms to an unlicensed person if he or she is in the same state, depending on where in the country you live. Selling firearms also does not violate Instagram’s terms of use.
