All the damn gun ads on the internet

Getting pretty fucking tired of seeing them juxtaposed next to articles about gun massacres.
What the hell can be done about it?

4. I only go to sites like this

or humor sites like Daily of the Day
And I can't recall having ever visited a site that sells guns or gun accessories.
So looks like ad block it is then

5. If you are searching for articles about guns

Then the google will place ads for guns. It's like when I search for stuff about republicans, I get campaign ads for republicans. I also get ads relevant to technologies I research for work.
