Conceal carry gun advertisements on this site

I’m not wild about this ad I keep seeing.


I don’t even see something like this as really even being a product. It’s promoting an idea of increased conceal carry and more guns being the solution to our problems.

It’s got a red state blue state map. It’s subtly political.

Hi Mabuse, thanks for bringing that to our attention. I will speak with our sales team if that's a direct sell or just "filler" by Google.

Found another “classy” one.





Now who is the target demographic for this product? His fans and supporters or his prospective assassins?

If you click on the Blue X in the upper right, you can tell Google to not show it anymore. Looks like it was an auto-fill from them, not a direct sell on our part.

It's an autofill, but we're going to see if we can ban firearm ads from the site entirely.
