In Case You Had Any Doubts About the Lay of THAT Particular Land

DON’T use Google “shopping” to feed your firearm and BANGBANG addiction. Stick to their search engine.

Google Shopping Censors All Gun, Ammo & Accessories Results

Google sent out an email to Google Adwords customers saying that they are going to pull all Google Shopping results for guns, ammunition, gun optics and gun accessories (Shopping results, not general search results).

    Fine – I don’t click on shopping results anyway – there’s way too many iffy sites on google’s shopping. OTOH, this is a great opportunity for other search engines to fill in the blanks with their shopping results.

    P.S. No, never had any doubts at all – I work around it.

    P.S. Not quite totally off topic and found at Classical Values.

    Not a bad beer either. And my ex-blogger self (ANYTHING can be a weapon) just loves it.

    Yeah, I read about this a few days ago. Several vendor sites are already putting the word.

    As you note, you can still use their search engine to find weapons, accessories, and ammo. So this is little more than a tantrum on their part. And hypocritical, given their problems with other nations (e.g., China).

    But I haven’t used Google as my primary search engine for several years. Google routinely ignores American traditions and events — witness Flag Day this year.

    And I plan to stay away from Google as much as I can. Difficult, given their corporate purchases over the years. It’s a small gesture, but an important one to me.
