Daily deal site Groupon has suspended any deals that have to do with firearms or shooting sports, effective immediately according to a report on DailyFinance.com.
The report states that a gun shop owner in Texas was told his deal for a discounted concealed handgun carry class was canceled the day before it was supposed to start.
Groupon originally told the owner they would sell 1500 spots for the class on the popular website.
According to the Daily Finance report, the owner is urging other supporters of the Second Amendment to boycott Groupon.
According to the Daily Finance the following statement came from Groupon. “All scheduled and current gun-related deals featured on Groupon North America, including shooting ranges, conceal-and-carry and clay shooting, have been placed on hiatus while we review internal standards that shape the deal inventory we feature,” said Groupon spokeswoman Julie Mossler in an emailed statement. “The category is under review following recent consumer and merchant feedback.”
Currently sold deals should still be honored by the vendors, but no new deals will take place.
