Groupon cancels gun-related deals

Posted: Updated:

Online coupon company Groupon announced it is canceling all offers related to guns. The news comes about a month after the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
The company says all current and scheduled gun-related deals in North America are on hiatus while it reviews its internal standards.

The company did not mention the Sandy Hook Shooting, specifically. It only said the gun category is under review after recent consumer and merchant feedback.

The gun deals on hold include those for shooting ranges and clay shooting.
