YouTube set to crack down on videos promoting firearms

Joining in the Left's propaganda war against Americans' Second (and First) Amendment rights, Google-owned YouTube has updated its "policies on content featuring firearms" to prohibit any video intending to "sell firearms or certain firearm accessories", either directly or through links to sites that do. Gun review site InRangeTV, which has 144,000 subscribers, has started posting copies of its videos to PornHub, among others, in case YouTube removes them, according to a Facebook post. It's also blocking videos that show or share instructions on how to build guns and some accessories, or convert firearms to automatic or simulated automatic firing, as well as videos that show how to install those kinds of gun modifiers.

YouTube has had policies around gun-related content for some time now.

Youtube is attempting to do what politicians seem inept at accomplishing - namely, removing guns and gun activists from our society.

YouTube has already been funding music videos, taking fans behind-the-scenes with artists such as Camila Cabello and G-Eazy.

YouTube's recent update on their policy towards firearm content is extremely poorly worded and open ended. The student survivors of the deadly attack have since thrust the issue of gun violence into the national spotlight.

A YouTube spokeswoman told Bloomberg News that the channel had been "mistakenly removed" and was reinstated.

Newman led KU in scoring for the fifth time in his last six games and was one of four Jayhawks to score in double-figures. He performed a right-handed layup, but never attempted a jump shot during the 15-minute portion open to the media.

On Facebook, InRange TV said YouTube's previous actions against firearms-related content has been " increasingly arbitrary and capricious so there is little reason to believe that this new policy is not going to be used to hammer content creators into whatever corner they see fit".

Though it's listed among racier clips common to a porn site, the video appears exactly as it does on YouTube. They said, "Our top priority at YouTube is to deliver a great user experience, and that includes ensuring users do not encounter excessive ad loads".

InRangeTV makes instructional and promotional gun videos. "The exercise of what amounts to censorship, then, can legitimately be viewed as the stifling of commercial free speech".

We provide the technology and tools for them to make money, whether it's ad share revenue or YouTube Spaces or the YouTube Academy program, " said David Ripert, head of YouTube Spaces Europe, Middle East and Africa in an interview with the publication Arts&Culture.

"YouTube's newly released released vague and one-sided firearms policy makes it abundantly clear that YouTube can not be counted upon to be a safe harbor for a wide variety of views and subject matter", InRange TV wrote.
