Sadly leaving google.

Your firearms advertising policy is forcing me to actively support alternate search engines.


I have been a Google supporter for many years, but I will not support censorship of perfectly legal items that I personally buy and use. I am disappointed that Google chooses to politicize their business but I recognize your right. I simply will not intentionally support any group that chooses censorship over freedom.


I have already gone to the hassle of changing banks over my former bank's firearms business policies and refuse to use paypal for the same reason. The change to an alternate search provider is much, much easier.
