Google is hypocritical. Out of curiosity I did a google shopping search for Ruger.

The search returned this

Your search - ruger - did not match any shopping results.
Suggestions:
• Make sure all words are spelled correctly.
• Try different keywords.
• Try more general keywords.

But, more interesting a paid advertising link was also displayed.

1. Mini 14 | Walmart.com
www.walmart.com/Hunting
walmart.com is rated 953 reviews
Shop and Save On Hunting Mini 14
2,944 people +1'd or follow Walmart

Let’s make the sissy liberals happy but don’t allow the advertising to become offended.

Google is beign stupid. Firearms are a losing issue for liberals and Google is going to lose too. Guns are in more household now that in the last 30+ years, 49 of 50 states have some form of concealed carry and million of Americans can and do go legally armed. At the same time the FBI reprots that crime is down again, 18 times out of the last 20 years and we are at a 40 year low for violent crime at at a 45 year low for homicide. Google is way off base here. They don't understand the facts or worse they don't care.

They probably don't care. They've become too big.
