I don’t want to make any presumptions about Google’s political leanings (cough cough), but it seems that the purveyors of free speech and information think that it is great, as long as you are finding what they decide is best for you. One more to the list of things that disgust me this week.
From The Firearm Blog:
Google sent out an email to Google Adwords customers saying that they are going to pull all Google Shopping results for guns, ammunition, gun optics and gun accessories (Shopping results, not general search results).
All you citizens seeking to remain within the bounds of the law with AR15 OLL (off list lowers) and compliance features are the target. Blatant disregard for the 2nd Amendment and a bizarre desire to disarm those who are least likely to commit violent crimes against their neighbors (think about it… if you are defending a meth operation, are you really worried about an assault weapons charge?) has resulted in Sen. Yee’s SB 249. Apparently, Sen Yee is convinced that all other criminals have been sufficiently dealt with, that we should now focus on those who are not currently criminals and create a whole new class to pursue.
What will signing some online petition do? I have no idea, but if it scares one spineless politician into thinking his re-election may be in jeopardy, resulting in opposition to this travesty, why not?

Q: What is SB 249?
A: Senate Bill 249 (Yee SD-08 “Firearms: assault weapon conversion kits”) is a California State Senate bill authored by Senator Leland Yee designed to prohibit possession, importation, making, selling, transferring, or loaning, any “conversion kit.”
If this Bill passes, beginning July 1, 2013, violating the newly-added gun control laws would subject people to civil and criminal liability.
Penal Code section 17(a) makes a violation of the proposed law a misdemeanor since the proscribed conduct addressed in the bill is not listed as an infraction. (“A felony is a crime that is punishable with death, by imprisonment in the state prison, or notwithstanding any other provision of law, by imprisonment in a county jail under the provisions of subdivision (h) of Section 1170. Every other crime or public offense is a misdemeanor except those offenses that are classified as infractions.” Emphasis added.)
If you don’t believe this goes straight to the top, you are deceiving yourself. Obama and Holder have stated that a new AWB is part of their agenda. They are going about it in such a way that mocks the very principles on which this country was founded. No price is too high when it comes to forcing utopia down your throat. If you aren’t sickened, you should be. These people are immoral to the core; their dishonesty unmatched, even in politics.
Feb. 4: Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich sends a reply to Grassley: “ATF makes every effort to interdict weapons that have been purchased illegally and prevent their transport into Mexico.” Further, “the allegation … that ATF ‘sanctioned’ or otherwise knowingly allowed the sale of assault weapons to a straw purchaser who then transported them into Mexico—is false.” The latter statement is used to mislead but is somewhat true in a “Clintonian” sense: The straw purchasers did not personally take the guns into Mexico; the guns were handed off to other people for this purpose. Breuer, who later admits that he has known about “Wide Receiver” since April 2010, does nothing to correct the false letter.
The Department of Justice also denies that F&F guns were “used” in Agent Terry’s murder. This, too, is technically true in the Clintonian sense. The guns were found where he was murdered, but it has not been conclusively determined that the fatal shot was fired from one of those guns.
When the deceit in this letter is uncovered, Congress tries to find out who at the DOJ reviewed and approved the content of those drafts. Holder refuses to release the information.
Best wishes to Mr. Meuse and the families of the deceased. He demonstrates rare perspective and reasoning in what must be an incredibly emotional time.
Like family of other victims, he thinks Stawicki would have killed even if he didn’t have a gun.
“Guns don’t kill people — I guess they do, but they’re just a tool,” he said. “A twig can do just as much.”
