Beginning in September, Google plans to block firearm, ammunition, and gun accessory ads.
According to Google Support's "Dangerous Products or Services" page, the company "[wants] to keep people safe both online and offline, so [they] won't allow the promotion of some products or services that cause damage, harm, or injury."
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."
The ban will also halt ads for "dangerous knives... throwing stars, brass knuckles, [and] crossbows," among other things.
Google Support says the ads that will be banned "are subject to change."
public company blocking services of those it disapproves of
can we do the same?
what if i owned a Christian cake shop and 2 homos wanted a wedding cake? would i be forced to make it?
of course i would. what was i thinking.
they should form a class action and sue google
“to keep people safe “
thank God that the people in the inner city can now be safe from gun violence.
“Dangerous Products or Services”
Guess that includes lying media...ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, NYT, LAT, etc...
I think they still fall into the category of “services”?
All the mass-shooting cranks took them.
wil they stop ads for virtually all drugs, planned parenthood, auto ads, pools, bathtubs, lithium ion batteries, regular’batteries, etc etc? soda? fast food chains? sugar items? transfat items? violent music?
I think I’ll use Duck Duck Go from now on.
I use DuckDuckGo
They best block all truck, car and suv ads also...............Just saying...........Statistics wise.............Just saying :)
IMHO, Google is on a slippery slope. Good luck to them /s. In the mean time I’ll continue using search engines other than Google:
Duck Duck Go
every company that finds its business website blocked should join in Class Action lawsuits against Google .
Google is very wealthy , there are countless billions of $ to be squeezed from them over this one . Bring it on ...ca-ching!
Yep. Screw google. i haven’t used them in years.
Google should have been sued in to oblivion early on unless they PAID every web site they indexed $$$ for their property. They built their company on other peoples sweat.
Bad enough they spy on us, now they what actively our thwart arms?
Its time to black.
Thwart our arms....?
