Google Bans Sales of Firearms Accessories in Shopping Page
(KNRS) Google wants you to know that it is thinking of your “safety” as it announced that anything to do with firearms on its Google Shopping service is forbidden. Further, firearms customers have recently found that Google Shopping won’t give them any search results for firearm-related products anymore even though the change over isn’t supposed to fully take effect until July 1.
The folks at HamLund Tactical posted the letter received from Google on a gun enthusiast’s message board called 68forums. In that letter, Google informs dealers in firearm accessories and ammunition that they will no longer be allowed to sell their wares through the Google service.
HamLund was told that starting July 1 (today) Google has implemented the new policy. The letter says:
“We do not allow the promotion or sale of weapons and any related products such as ammunitions or accessory kits on Google Shopping. In order to comply with our new policies, please remove any weapon-related products from your data feed and then re-submit your feed in the Merchant Center.”
