Confirmed: No "weapons" or accessories on Google Shopping

Funny that a company that extolls "values" so much will violate your privacy without hesitation.

Using Ask.com now. Not bad. Not using google by a few million gun owners will have no effect at all, except to make us feel better.


That's good enough reason to not use google for me.

I don't know what Google shopping is - I use their search function but I don't sign in or use any other Google prodcut...ever.
