    Is Google anti?

    If you Google "9mm ammo", you get a lot of hits. Granted all of them are too expensive, but you get them. If you go to Google Shopping and search the same or even "9mm ammo bulk", you don't get any ammo. You get all kinds of stuff, but NONE of it is ammo.

    While it wouldn't surprise me if the most of the c-level executives at Google are anti-gun, I don't think the shopping restrictions are a result of anything more than lawyers recommending they don't sell any federally regulated items. Google shopping also doesn't allow the sale of alcohol and tobacco. Ebay, amazon, and craigslist don't allow firearms either.

    Do they censor firearms from Shopping? Yes. They are anti.

    A claim as in the opening post might have legs if a vendor posted here that they were denied
    access and disallowed from selling through these on-line merchants. Maybe its happened, maybe not.
    However, just because there are no vendors selling via this method, doesn't necessarily mean that they are
    prohibited. It wouldn't surprise me if they are, but we should have something more than a hunch
    before judging.

    Actually they did change their policy last year. There used to be lots of results, but vendors were notified that Shopping was revising it's policy to no longer allow guns, ammo, etc. to be sold.

    Just found an article about it:

    Google is what ever Obama tells them to be. That is why they avoid the the Obama hammer used on others.

    I switched to Bing, not because of that, but think they give better search results.. Try the same search and see what happens.

    Google stopped showing guns/ammo/gun accessories in Google Shopping a few years ago when they had a 'policy change'.

    Fortunately I shopped for and bought all of my AR build parts after finding them on Google Shopping before they did this.

    Use Startpage and not Google. Google keeps a record of everything that you search for on the Internet.

    I know Yahoo is anti- anything against Bloomberg and the NWO.
    Tried to post 3x in the comments section of the article they had on Bloomberg spending 12M on anti gun adds, and they were removed.

    Yup, I switched to Bing (on all my devices) for the same reason. I used to use Google shopping for lots of things but now I don't touch it. Not a fan of "thought control," thank you very much.
