CHICAGO, Ill. (www.incnow.tv) – Online discount dealer, Groupon, halted all future gun related deals on its website.

Bowing to pressure from customers, the Chicago based company has canceled existing and planned discounts for shooting ranges, conceal and carry, and clay shooting. In a statement a company spokesman said the category is under review following recent customer and merchant feedback.

Groupon joins other companies like Dick’s Sporting Goods that have distanced themselves from the gun industry in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
