    Due to their stated policy:

    As stated in our program policies, AdSense publishers are not permitted to place Google ads on sites with content related to weapons or weapon accessories, including firearms, fighting knives, or stun guns. This includes sites that sell or drive traffic to sites which sell this type of material.

    I suggest that we all stop using Google; stop responding to AdSense advertising, and tell each and everyone of them exactly why.

    Ok, thanks I had read that in the past and simply figered it related mainly to shipping of named items.. Since you can't tell where the ad was placed from or if it was from a licensed dealer.
