    Google Shopping Censors All Gun, Ammo & Accessories Results



    Firearms Blog
    July 1, 2012
    Google sent out an email to Google Adwords customers saying that they are going to pull all Google Shopping results for guns, ammunition, gun optics and gun accessories (Shopping results, not general search results).


    HamLund Tactical received this email and posted it on 68forums.com (emphasis added) ?
    Dear Merchant,
    We?re writing to let you know about some upcoming changes to the product listings you submit to Google. As we recently announced, we are starting to transition our shopping experience to a commercial model that builds on Product Listing Ads. This new shopping experience is called Google Shopping. As part of this transition, we?ll begin to enforce a set of new policies for Google Shopping in the coming weeks. A new list of the allowed, restricted, and prohibited products on Google Shopping is available on our new policy page ? Google Shopping policies - Google Merchant Center Help.
    Based on a review of the products you?re currently submitting, it appears that some of the content in your Merchant Center account, HamLund Tactical, will be affected by these policy changes. In particular we found that your products may violate the following policies:
    Weapons
    When we make this change, Google will disapprove all of the products identified as being in violation of policies. We ask that you make any necessary changes to your feeds and/or site to comply, so that your products can continue to appear on Google Shopping.
    To help you through this new set of policies and how to comply with them, we would like to give you some specific suggestions regarding the changes needed to keep your offers running on Google Shopping.
    Weapons
    As highlighted on our new policy page Google Shopping policies - Google Merchant Center Help, in order to comply with the Google Shopping policies you need to comply first with the AdWords policies AdWords Policy Center - Advertising Policies Help.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. For more information on this policy please visit Weapons - Advertising Policies Help.
    We?re constantly reviewing our policies, and updating them when necessary, to ensure we?re offering the best experience possible to our users. We?ve identified a set of policy principles to govern our policy efforts on Google Shopping in the U.S. These principles are:
    1) Google Shopping should provide a positive experience to users. Showing users the right products at the right time can truly enhance a user?s experience. When people trust us to deliver them to a destination that?s relevant, original, and easy to navigate this creates a positive online experience to the benefit of both users and merchants.
    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. Scams, phishing, viruses, and other malicious activities on the Internet damage the value of the Internet for everyone. Trying to get around policies or ?game the system? is unfair to our users, and we can?t allow that.
    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. All advertising, as well as the products and services being advertised, must clearly comply with all applicable laws and regulations. For the most part, our policies aren?t designed to describe every law in every country. All advertisers bear their own responsibility for understanding the laws applicable to their business. Our policies are often more restrictive than the law, because we need to be sure we can offer services that are legal and safe for all users.
    4) Google Shopping should be compatible with Google?s brand decisions. Google Shopping must be compatible with company brand decisions. Our company has a strong culture and values, and we?ve chosen not to allow ads that promote products and services that are incompatible with these values. In addition, like all companies, Google sometimes makes decisions based on technical limitations, resource constraints, or requirements from our business partners. Our policies reflect these realities.
    We?ve given much thought to our stance on this content, as well as the potential effect our policy decision could have on our Merchants, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
    Sincerely,
    The Google Shopping Team
    ? 2012 Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 You have received this mandatory email service announcement to update you about important changes to your Google Merchant Center account.
    This is a pity. I liked using Google Shopping to compare prices on gun-related products. Google now has a worse policy than ebay, which at least allows accessories. Shame on you Google.
    UPDATE: I published this post a few hours ago and the search ?5.56mm ammo? (as seen in the screenshot above) worked in Google Shopping. I now get ?5.56mm ammo ? did not match any shopping results?. It may still be working for some people, depending on which Google servers you are hitting.

    Secret Service shuts down

    Photo c/o Campus Reform U.S. Secret Service officers shut down a student-led protest calling for President Obama to fire Attorney General Eric Holder this morning, according to a report from in front of the White House.

    After discovering a “suspicious package,” the Secret Service ended the protest. “Several agents seemed hostile to our march and seemed anxious for us to leave the area,” Maurice Lewis, a University of California student, told Campus Reform. “The discover[y of] the ‘unidentified package’ came just as the protest began gain traction.”

    The U.S. House of Representatives cited Holder for contempt of Congress on Thursday after he defied a subpoena demanding documents pertaining to Operation Fast and Furious, the gun-walking scheme that claimed border patrol agent Brian Terry’s life.

    The Justice Department denied, in a February 4, 2011, letter to Congress, that law enforcement ever allow guns to be trafficked into Mexico. In December 2011, DOJ retracted that claim.

    About 50 students congregated outside the White House this morning for the anti-Holder protest.

    Here is another Good one

    Obama to Soldiers: Pay Up | Washington Free Beacon

    The Obama administration on Friday threatened to veto a defense appropriations bill in part because it does not include higher health care fees for members of the military.

    “The Administration is disappointed that the Congress did not incorporate the requested TRICARE fee initiatives into either the appropriation or authorization legislation,” the White House wrote in an official policy statement expressing opposition to the bill, which the House approved in May.

    President Obama’s most recent budget proposal includes billions of dollars in higher fees for members of TRICARE, the military health care system, and is part of the administration’s plan to cut nearly $500 billion from the Pentagon’s budget.

    Some fear the administration’s proposal is an effort to increase enrollment in the state-run insurance exchanges mandated under the president’s controversial health care law.

    The administration urged the House to “reconsider” the fee increase, arguing they are “essential for DOD to successfully address rising personnel costs.”
    The House bill has significant bipartisan support, and easily passed by a margin of 299 to 120.

    William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.

    Google blows electric donkey dick. Good thing there are other search engines and I already have my ammo sites bookmarked.
    If gunners were as violent as anti-gunners believe, logically there wouldn't be any anti-gunners left.
