    Whether or not you can get on depends on how you have your internet security options set. Look on the toolbar at the top of your page for 'Tools' and adjust 'Security' accordingly to allow or disallow those types of web sites.

    It may be that google doesn't like gun sites. That would be my guess.

    I blew Google off a long time ago. MSN and AVG search engines not quite as good but much more balanced in the retrieval selections.

    Google has been skewing their searches for a long time and particularly with respect to topics like Fast and Furious, Obama 'birther' stories, etc. Ditto for vendors that subscribe to Google to get a higher weighting on searches for products.

    I also killed all connections to Google except for rare times I use YouTube, or global maps.
