One of the Internet's leading search engines is refusing to sell advertising to firearms dealers or companies that sell gun parts or knives, though it will sell ads to pornographic sites.

-- An alternative to use is AllTheWeb.com. Their search database is bigger than Yahoo (who uses Google) and a lot eaiser to use.

I have no idea about their gun politics, but I found KeepAndBearArms.com through them. :)
