Seems like that article only focuses on weapons/accessories when there are broader classifications of products and services that are also not allwoed to be advertised/sold....so I'm guessing it's a legal liability issue for an interstate commerical entity vice a 2nd Amendment statement...

What is happening to freedom of speech?

Everything gets more and more censored...

I have switched to yahoo search and will not use google maps. Just for the principle of it.

Kind of suck that I have gmail and its my work email, cant really change that...

Good point. In return I dont have to use the service of said company if I dont agree with its policies...

but NOW, they have ethics and dont like guns right?
Very true. Also not trying to get into politics but didnt Google tell China to f* off because China wanted their Google searches censored? I may be wrong but thought I heard that

Same here, cant totally remember it. I thought China was going to block Google unless they self censored, Google said no, China backed down and accepted Google but only after China censors results. I may be wrong though

As of June 2012, Google's Shopping policies were modified to prohibit the inclusion of "firearms" and firearm-related products, such as ammunition and accessory kits.[113][114]

China

See also: Google China
Until March 2010, Google adhered to the Internet censorship policies of China,[115] enforced by filters colloquially known as "The Great Firewall of China". Google.cn search results were filtered to remove some results concerning the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, sites supporting the independence movements of Tibet and Taiwan, the Falun Gong movement, and other information perceived to be harmful to the People's Republic of China (PRC). Google claimed that some censorship is necessary in order to keep the Chinese government from blocking Google entirely, as occurred in 2002.[116] The company claims it did not plan to give the government information about users who search for blocked content, and will inform users that content has been restricted if they attempt to search for it.[117] As of 2009, Google was the only major China-based search engine to explicitly inform the user when search results are blocked or hidden.

Some Chinese Internet users were critical of Google for assisting the Chinese government in repressing its own citizens, particularly those dissenting against the government and advocating for human rights.[118] Furthermore, Google had been denounced and called hypocritical by Free Media Movement for agreeing to China's demands while simultaneously fighting the United States government's requests for similar information.[119] Google China had also been condemned by Reporters Without Borders,[119]Human Rights Watch[120] and Amnesty International.[121]

In 2009, China Central Television, Xinhua News Agency, People's Daily reported Google's "dissemination of obscene information", People's Daily claimed that "Google's 'don't be evil' motto becomes a fig leaf".[122][123] The Chinese government imposed administrative penalties to Google China, and demanded for a reinforcement of the censorship.[124]

However, on January 12, 2010, in response to an apparent hacking of Google's servers in an attempt to access information about Chinese dissidents, Google announced that “we are no longer willing to continue censoring our results on Google.cn, and so over the next few weeks we will be discussing with the Chinese government the basis on which we could operate an unfiltered search engine within the law, if at all.”[125] On March 22, 2010, after talks with Chinese authorities failed to reach an agreement, the company redirected its censor-complying Google China service to its Google Hong Kong service, which is outside the jurisdiction of Chinese censorship laws. However, at least as of March 23, 2010, "The Great Firewall" continues to censor search results from the Hong Kong portal, www.google.com.hk (as it does with the US portal, www.google.com) for controversial terms such as "Falun gong" and "the June 4 incident" (Tiananmen Square incident).[126][127][128]

I wonder what they think they are going to stop by doing this. Many news articles reference the use of guns - are they going to cencor that too? Pretty soon they will have to cencor everything, and they will cut their own throats. What's next - porn, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, pain medicine, kitchen knifes, plastic cutlery, etc....where will it stop?
