Have they stopped letting people list guns on golsn.com? I logged on and there are none listed.

yep, looks like all firearms related pages have been removed.
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...ms&btnG=Search

google cached pages are still up, but any firearms links are dead.
ie: http://74.125.47.132/search?q=cache:...&ct=clnk&gl=us

Am I the only one who thinks this is a bunch of crap? This was about the only outlet to be able to buy and sell guns on the internet without the price gougers on gunsamerica and gunbroker.

What's LSN & golsn.com?

It must be a Southeastern thing. It is an open forum meaning Local Sales Network similar to Craigslist where guns could be bought and sold openly in a person to person capacity. You can search for items within a certain radius of your area code. It appears that Google put some pressure on them and now guns are no longer available.

Where would google get that power?


It's called "advertising $'s" ... you know, that stuff that keeps "free" services like LSN running. LSN couldn't operate with out the Google $'s, so the firearms related stuff bit the dust.

sad to see LSN bit the dust on the guns but I think they are trying to do the right thing with a new site.

Any proof that google had something to do with this?

I got this off LSN web site

I understand I can no longer use LSN for the sale of guns, rifles, firearms, or ammo.
LSN owners are NOT anti-gun, so we have created http://www.gunownersclub.com for our valued gun enthusiasts!

Let me get this right.
Google is now anti gun?

Guess it's time to close my two Goggle Check Out accounts.
Most folks use our merchant account anyway,
when buying from us, so no big deal there. :rolleyes:

Oh yea might as well stop my PPC ads with Google too.
I hardly ever feed Google PPC ad money anyway as
we are on page one of Google for our internet biz for FREE. :p

Man every time I turn around there's more anti American (anti gun) BS everywhere.

Oh well life is still good. For now. :D

Not unless there's some new info out there. This topic was discussed a few days ago, and the suggestion was made that Google had something to do with it. However, LSN attributed it to their agreements with their banner advertisers, and not to anything relating to Google.

Ohio has a nice and active firearms section at Swap Giant (http://www.swapgiant.com/-89/posts/50_Sporting_Goods/235_Firearms_Ammo_and_Accessories/)
