Groupon Cancels Gun Deals

  • Chicago based deal-of-the-day website Groupon announced the cancellation of all gun-related deals, a little over a month after the shooting incident in Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut claimed the lives of over 20 children and 6 adults. Bowing to pressure following the deadly mass shooting and a raging gun-control debate, Groupon announced that it has canceled all the existing and all planned discounts for shooting ranges, and conceal-and-carry shooting at least temporarily. The company also gave no indication if and when the deals would be resumed. A number of gun vendors are calling to boycott Groupon incensed by the announcement.
