As if you needed yet another reason to switch search engines. From Breitbart:
Beginning in September, Google plans to block firearm, ammunition, and gun accessory ads.
[ . . . ]
Included in the dangerous products for which ads will be blocked are “Guns & Parts.” This covers “functional devices that appear to discharge a projectile at high velocity, whether for sport, self-defense, or combat.”
Also included is a ban on ads for “any part or component that’s necessary to the function of a gun or intended for attachment to a gun.” This covers “gun scopes, ammunition, ammunition clips or belts.”
They’re also blocking ads for tobacco products, pot, illegal drugs, etc. You can see the whole list here.
