Follow-on to this thread...

Google shopping recently changed their policy and no longer do guns & ammo.

A statement was posed in the last thread that google is just adhering to the law. I'm searching for this law but can't find it anywhere.

It looks like facebook and yahoo also have this policy to not allow advertisements for guns and ammo, but i'm not finding where these policies are driven by a law. In google's message to venders, they don't cite that they are moving to comply with a law, they just say they are enforcing "their" new policy to prohibit guns and ammo.

This is a good 2A topic. If there is such a law to prohibit advertising ammo, why? We should add that to the bucket list of things that need fixed.

Google shopping was a great place to search for price comparisons on ammo. It's a big loss for it to be gone and suddenly for apparently no good reason.

Here's two articles for more...
