As of May 31st, Google, self-proclaimed champion of free expression and of increasing global access to information, began censoring Google Shopping search results. Specifically, if one is searching for information on firearms or ammunition via the search giant’s Shopping service, Google will return no results. This level of arrogance, paternalism, and hypocrisy is really rather angering. If Google’s leaders wish to promote stupid views on firearms, they should feel free to do so as private citizens, not as the heads of a public company. In the mean time, I’ll be binging it.
Don’t be evil, Google. Gun rights are human rights.
