CENSORSHIP: YouTube Bans How-To Firearm Videos, Suspends Major Gun Manufacturer

This week, YouTube entered the fight against gun rights by implementing new policies that ban highly-popular videos that are enjoyed by millions of gun owners, enthusiasts, and people eager to learn about firearms.

YouTube, which is owned by left-leaning Alphabet Inc.’s Google, 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,” Bloomberg reported.

YouTube has also started banning the accounts of major gun manufacturers like Spike’s Tactical which received a notification from the tech giant that said they’ve been suspended because “YouTube doesn’t allow content that encourages or promotes violent or dangerous acts that have an inherent risk of serious physical harm or death.”

Spikes Tactical was also told that they are “prohibited from accessing, possessing or creating any other YouTube accounts.”
