    I also tried a couple of searches on Google, and got sponsored links that sell all manner of weapons and related gear. For example, Cheaper Than Dirt is a sponsored link, as is Cabela's. And, if you search for "concealed carry forum", DC is the second link that comes up.

    So, you can get porn and gun discussions. You can even get hits on "gun porn."

    My normal response in a situation like that is to vote with my checkbook and simply stop using the company in question. Unfortunately, Google pretty much defines internet search these days.......so good luck with that.
    ask.com is by far a better search engine.
