I have just found that Google has adopted policies to not allow selling firearms and ammo through Google shopping. http://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=176077
Also, tobacco is out. There are more, but when I looked into it on the surface, it is apparent that Google has now taken a side in the culture war. I therefore am responding in kind and am removing my gmail, iGoogle, Google+, youtube, and other Google related account and will never use Chrome or any google product.

Just wanted to share with y'all.

I tried it today and even the most generic searches for things that could be related to a firearm wouldn't pull up on Google shopping.

I found some of this accidentally. But it seems the NRA is already on it:

Not that I think it will affect anything, but I no longer use Google or any google product or service. I've cancelled them all and let my contacts know.

Spread the word.

Google's political stance was. Not nice people.
