No response from google
 
Big surprise there! I sent a couple emails to google inquiring as to why I could no longer do a google shopping search for guns, knives, or anything that had to do with any weapons of any kind. But, I can find plenty of deals on books that teach you how to successfully smuggle cocaine, recipes for use with marijuana, and how to conceal a dead body. I can even find a good deal on the latest porn. Wtf google? Thanks for taking away yet another basic freedom. But, I digress. It's painfully obvious that it's just another piece falling in to place for the socialist agenda. We just have to accept it, right?

Lucky, I can Google "guns for sale", "combat knives", "fighting knives" and all kind of stuff comes up. Check your parental controls.

Yes you have to accept that a private business chooses not to market specific products on it's shopping pages.

Ummmm- Lucky- have you tried a Google search yourself? I just searched "firearms auction" and got hits, including gunbroker.com, and ran "gun auction" and got another set of hits. :confused:

This is in reference to doing a search under the google "shopping" tab. It was a great tool for comparing ammunition prices, gun prices, etc. Now when searching it says "no results found for ______".

One of the reasons that I use Bing instead of Google.

Forgot to add a link.

Also, when you go to the google shopping page, there is a link explaining all the changes that have been made.

Yeah, I had never used it before, but suppose it will be my default now.

They have yet to respond to myself as well.

Let's see, I went to Google, clicked on the shopping tabbed, typed firearms for sale - got nothing. Then, I typed Beretta 92FS, and got multiple hits.

Basically, with the shopping tab (as with many tabs on Google) you have to be specific.

So, where's the problem? It's a simple keyword search, as opposed to general searches.
