Google censors shopping results for AR-15

Google Appears to Remove All Shopping Search Results for Guns Even Water Guns, ‘Guns and Roses,’ ‘Burgundy’ | Breitbart

Google has removed search results for any product that contains the word “gun” in it, including water guns, toy guns, the band “Guns and Roses,” and even “burgundy” from its shopping section.
Google has removed results in its shopping tool for a wide range of terms related to firearms, unwittingly censoring completely unrelated items such as music groups and movies whose titles matched filtered terms.
Google Shopping allows users to search for products from a wide range of online shopping sites to compare prices and offerings. The Internet giant has removed search results for a wide variety of terms, which was discovered by social media users this week.
Searches for “gun,” “guns,” “pistol,” “pistols,” “AR-15,” “rifle,” and “revolver,” in the shopping section of Google’s search engine will now fail to return any results, while other searches which have nothing to do with firearms but include the keywords similarly provide no results, including “toy guns,” “water guns,” “glue gun,” “Guns and Roses,” “Gundam,” “Top Gun,” “Naked Gun,” the Man With the Golden Gun,” “Shogun,” “Sex Pistols,” and even “burgundy.”
The fact that words including “gun” as part of the title have led many to suspect Google is running a filter specifically to remove any search result including those letters, as opposed to filtering by product category or vendor.

  1. Jewgle has lost most of it’s credibility, not that it had any in the first place, and soon other search engines will fill in the void created by this “sealed in a box” monstrosity.

  2. Our self appointed internet overlords are only doing it for our own good. They know what’s best for us and they don’t want to see us get hurt because surfing is a dangerous activity.
