    is a picture of a soldier holding a gun (or just a picture of a modern gun) considered as "threatening"picture? i just don't understand it completely
    are the pictures i added below forbidden on fb or not? will they ban my fan page if i will be posting such pictures there?
    thx

    Personally I reported a photo of this 11 years old holding a gun and facebook replied to me saying "The image is not in violation of facebook term hence it was not removed" (something long those lines anyway since it was months ago.)

    Maybe if it's someone shooting someone else then it's a different issue. So I don't think there's anything to worry about.

    NO , NO

    if you showed blood or the bullet hitting someone then you would be banned and don't be offensive to any community country etc and you are okay .
    I am subscribed to a page on fb which is related to world defence news and it has a lot of tanks , guns warships etc .

    I think it's fine dude. Maybe the censorship on North Korean Facebook would be worse, but in general you are ok.

    Just make it about the "product" In this case the gun and not anything controversial or political and I think you should be ok.
