You Tube banning gun videos????

Just this this posted on Facebook by Paul Joseph Watson. Thought you might be interested since You Tube is a vast source of information for many of us when it comes to firearms reviews, instructions, and general information.

They're not banning all gun videos.

YouTube will ban videos that promote or link to websites selling firearms and accessories, including bump stocks, which allow a semi-automatic rifle to fire faster. The list of forbidden accessories includes, but is not limited to, anything that enables a firearm to simulate automatic fire or converts a firearm to do so, and high capacity magazine kits. Additionally, YouTube said it will prohibit videos with instructions on how to assemble firearms.

As expected, this is somewhat blown out of proportion by the "Fake News." I'm curious if the instructional videos showing disassembly, reassembly, etc., Will be deleted. I'd guess not, but it remains to be seen.

Depending on how far they go they could make our "Gunsmith" and "Training Video's" sub forums useless.

You may or may not remember, but two years ago one of my go to YT guys was banned for reasons still unknown. HickOk45 had his YT channel terminated for a day and he stated it may have been a robot that flagged him for a "gun related" topic.

He along with another favorite of mine, Jeff Quinn of the Gunblast channel on YT have always put links on their videos on where to buy the guns and ammo that they are using and I now wonder if all of those videos will one day disappear.

What bites my ass is companies like Google {the owner of YT} & Facebook lean so far to the left when it comes to guns, but on the other hand they share the information of millions of users without blinking an eye.

Mark Zuckerberg who is the founder of Facebook is getting hit in the wallet big time after his company shared the info of 50 million users and the backlash will continue with advertisers leaving as quickly as they signed up.

Mark Zuckerberg lost a massive $4.9 billion yesterday, and other tech titans didn?t fare much better | Financial Post

I guess that we will all see in the coming months and years what will actually happen to all of our favorite gun channels on YT and what will or will not be allowed, but feel free to watch videos that would make a grown man uncomfortable to see.

These videos often include sexual situations and horrible depictions of women and men alike, in sexually inappropriate and creepy situations like fighting over men, choosing the right bikini, male characters being peeping toms, and almost always without a single word, only gibberish (especially with the animated channels) - just weird and awful imagery being fed into children's developing brains at a constant basis because YouTube is doing nothing to ban these sick channels and the people behind them. Because YouTube has done nothing to remove them, their views and subscribers continue to skyrocket - all from children watching them.

But videos celebrating gun violence are perfectly fine.

Many YT refugees may be heading over to GetZone or Full30 eventually.

If enough of us would hit Google in the pocketbook they would learn not to pull this kind of crap. Instead of using Google for your search, use DuckDuckgo. DuckDuckgo does not keep logs like Google does - hence nothing to turn over to big brother. Or, complain to YT on everything you might find offensive to the point they are inundated.
