      What’s wrong with Google?

      • Dougscamo

        Memories: “In late June HamLund Tactical, which sells firearms accessories and other items, received an email from the “Google Shopping Team” that told them its products would soon be censured. The email said, “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.”

        Google stated a few reasons to HamLund Tactical, such as, “1) Google Shopping should provide a positive experience to users… 2 ) Google Shopping should be safe for all users. User safety is everyone’s business, and we can’t do business with those who don’t agree…. 3) Google Shopping should comply with local laws and regulations. Many products and services are regulated by law, which can vary from country to country.”

        Google is pretty much the biggest enemy of gun people these days. So there’s that…

    Looking at the website, it doesn’t look like there’s anything on there that you can slap on your rifle or buy a rifle or can. It’s like t-shirts and hats, shot glasses, backpacks etc. the magazine carriers, rifle cases and cooler (which looks small $35) looks like the only good stuff.
