Online coupon company Groupon announced that it will cancel all of its deals related to guns.
The announcement comes one month after 20 children and six adults were shot and killed inside Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.
Company officials said all current and scheduled gun-related deals in North America are on hiatus while the company reviews its internal standards. No one from the company mentioned the Sandy Hook shooting, but said the gun category is under review after consumer and merchant feedback.
The deals include those for shooting ranges and clay shooting.
