I blame the Internet
UPDATE: I stand corrected. I was wrong about this. AR-15 results show up on the main search but not when you click the “Shopping” tag.. I shall have to be much more careful in the future. Thanks to Schoolboy and Tim for catching this.
Update — After this story published, Google replied to Breitbart Tech this this statement:
We are experiencing an error in our Shopping results and we are working to address this issue. We have not changed our policy on the promotion of guns, gun parts or gun components.
Example Main Search on Google:
And Bing also has shopping results that vanish with clicking on “Shopping:”
Why this is I do not know. Perhaps someone can enlighten me.
[Original erroneous item]
