Youtube Censors Gun Videos Following Everytown Letter

Everytown for Gun Safety is celebrating a victory this week after Youtube pulled down nine gun-related videos. 

Everytown claimed the videos in question depicted users building “ghost guns” in violation of Youtube’s policies and community standards.  

The videos had been viewed, collectively, more than 3.4 million times.  

“It just got a little bit harder for criminals and extremists to learn how to put together untraceable ghost guns,” said John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety, in a press release.  

“Now we call on YouTube to build on this momentum, and back up their strong guidelines around ghost gun videos with equally strong moderation and removal practices,” he continued.

“Untraceable ghost guns that can be bought without background checks are fueling gun violence across the country and must be addressed,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action. 

“Removing these videos that provided step-by-step guides on how to make these at home is an important first step, but now YouTube must take action to prevent similar videos from being posted going forward,” she insisted.  

Everytown’s request for censorship did not stop there.  

The anti-gun group is also asking the video-sharing platform to remove an additional five videos that show viewers how to 3D print various gun parts and accessories.  

It believes these too, violate Youtube’s guidelines.

    Youtubers are finally starting to Doubleday and post on Rumble and once I can see the same videos on both then im done with YouTube. They have gay male porn on youtube but guns, that’s too far. BlueBitch he/she/it is a fan of that YouTube channel. Also, you can get the anarchist cook book. I purchased some last year. And not that pussified survivalist nonsense, the encyclopedia version

    This is nibbling at the 2A. Trying to create Death by 1000 cuts on firearms. No criminal is going to bother building a ghost gun to commit a crime. That takes too much time and effort when they can pick a firearm up from the street corner that was stolen.

    • Bobo January 6, 2022, 2:42 am

      There have been instances of criminals using “ghost guns” to commit crimes, not to say they actually built them themselves, but someone they know did

  • Stan d. Upnow December 25, 2021, 12:20 pm

    These gun-ban organizations consistently spout emotionally-charged rhetoric without hard evidence to back-up their claims. Quite often they just outright lie, or spin reports to support their position.
    For me, if it could be Proven that the vast majority of “ghost guns” were actually being built/used in crimes, and few were being possessed by legitimate gun owners, then I might be in favor of regulation. Meanwhile…..

    You Tube creators need to start uploading their content from You Tube to Blockchain based and content should never be able to go away.

  • JoshO December 25, 2021, 12:52 am

    Why is the gun community still using YouTube anyway? Is it really impossible to switch to a video hosting cite that isn’t run by leftist dipshits?

  • JP Rogers December 24, 2021, 10:12 pm

    The videos will surface again, I’m sure. Hopefully on a “friendlier” host.

    “The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed.”
    – Thomas Jefferson, letter to to John Cartwright, 5 June 1824

  • Dilligaf December 24, 2021, 8:49 pm

    Yeeeeeeaaaaaah, criminals are NOT going to take the time to build firearms. They want guns that are readily available and ready to go without the hard work. These anti-American anti-constitutional groups are NOT about safety whatsoever.

  • Zupglick December 24, 2021, 6:35 pm

    Guess what? There’s this little site called Rumble.

  • Dexter Winslett December 24, 2021, 4:27 pm

    Boycott youtube, facebook, instagram and all who betray the constitution. Hit them in the wallet.

    Looking forward to the day libs won’t inhabit the earth.

    That Billionaire Bloomberg should use his monies to help solve problems like universal health care for all American Citizens, affordable housing for all American Citizens, living wage jobs for all American Citizens, and stopping illegal immigration, etc. not censorship, criminalizing law-abiding citizens, or trying to re-write our Constitution.

    • krinkov545 December 24, 2021, 2:57 pm

      Best thing a deerslug for his big mouth.

  • Vincent December 23, 2021, 4:31 pm

    Ok, cost of parts, and tools for so called ghost gun, 5 to 7 hundred dollars. Cost of hot stolen, or used in a crime gun on the street. 2 to 4 hundred dollars. With no wait for shipping or time to finish the tooling and assemble the gun. Do the math.
    Most of those involed in criminal activity are not particularly ambitious. Much quicker, easier, and cheaper to just pick up something off the street.
    And, I question the ghost gun claim being used for guns with the serial, or identification ground, filed off.
    Like the hype about hi capacity magazines, or bump stocks. How often are they actually used in crimes? Likely in the same range of crimes committed with AR or AK type weapons. According to the FBI numbers, around 2% of crimes use such weapons. Media hype and gun grabber drivel.

  • bobs your uncle December 22, 2021, 1:12 am

    I’m amazed by the number of people killed and the thousands injured by deer every year in the U.S,

    • krinkov545 December 24, 2021, 2:58 pm

      How many died by the biden clot jab?

      • Bobo January 6, 2022, 2:46 am

        You mean the stuff that Pres.Trump and his administration fast tracked?

        Quite frankly, very few and pretty much every drug on the market has pages of disclaimers listing potential side effects (most of which include death)

    • Stan d. Upnow December 25, 2021, 12:25 pm

      Under Biden’s insistence, the FBI has been ordered to investigate deer as “domestic terrorists.”

  • Blue Dog (he/him) December 21, 2021, 3:48 pm

    This is a good thing. Information wants to be free but knowledge comes with a price. I can watch youtube videos helping me figure out why my check engine light is on, videos with tips on making fluffier baked potatoes or replacing my faucet – how free should access to information about building weapons be? Try finding the Anarchist’s Cookbook or Poor Man’s James Bond – there is a reason that kind of information is guarded and not just because a lot of it was plain wrong. What responsibilities do these platforms have?

    If you think censorship is bad now, wait until they repeal the protections of these websites as publishers. If you really think that reclassifying these tech giants as publishers and not just platforms will allow the freer flow of disinformation, misinformation or dangerous information, then you are awfully short sighted. Not that this is a bad thing – these companies have crowdsourced the curation of information for far too long, to the detriment of our free society.

    This is a good thing. Children in schools and streets all across America are that much safer because of the brave stance YouTube has taken on these ghost gun videos.

    • John December 23, 2021, 7:48 pm

      I can find Anarchist’s Cookbook or Poor Man’s James Bond – easily, just need to know how to use the internet, which Blue Dog doesn’t.

    • Spike December 23, 2021, 7:56 pm

      You, nor anyone else on the planet has the right to determine what is acceptable information and what is not.

      Don’t ever think you or anyone else does. And if they do, then that is simply the definition of a tyrant and dictator.

      Run along puppet.

      • Jerry December 24, 2021, 12:53 pm

        Blue dog has to be speaking sarcasticaly–I can’t believe anyone really that stupid could live-unless he has a recording playing in each ear going “INHALE….EXHALE…INHALE…..”

      • Stan d. Upnow December 25, 2021, 12:31 pm

        From your comment, I guess you’re in favor of the dissemination of child porn, or snuff videos. Wrong!
        Given some people’s twisted perversions, limitations are sometimes necessary. If you don’t agree, than you’re one of the sickos!

    • Elapid King December 24, 2021, 3:28 pm

      Children across America are indeed much safer since you’ve been put on the registry.

    • Blue dogs gay lover December 24, 2021, 4:01 pm

      Yup. I agree with Bluedog she/it. I mean ghost guns are scary and you don’t need kids getting scared by scary ghosts and guns.

    • Cz December 24, 2021, 5:11 pm

      Er, I mean Brandon!

    • JoshO December 25, 2021, 12:58 am

      Libtards like you are the new book burners. As a fan of irony, it tickles me.

      You lack the historical context to understand why, but that’s ok. I’m comfortable enough laughing at you not with you.

    • Stan d. Upnow December 25, 2021, 12:41 pm

      People I’ve talked to that build those “ghost guns” do so out of concern that the govt. may enact a national gun registry, which might be used to confiscate their firearms. If the gun doesn’t “exist,” they can’t come for it.
      In a twist, a criminal might find such a gun desirable for the same reason(untraceable). Likely they’d steal a “ghost gun” rather than spend the time and resources to build one.
      So, banning the “ghost guns” to prevent crime, rather than going after the criminals, is EXACTLY the same BS rationale they spout that banning legitimately-owned firearms will stop crimes committed with guns.

      • KimberproSS December 28, 2021, 3:18 pm

        I have always wondered what good it is to trace a firearm to a crime. Unless the criminal was so stupid to use a firearm they purchased from an FFL dealer, no trace will catch the criminal or stop a crime. That is after the fact stuff. Having that traceability might return a firearm to a rightful owner, but I don’t think that is what they are thinking. The gun grabbers make such a big deal out of traceability and the need for it to make us all safe. I say balderdash.

    • DELCO December 25, 2021, 2:01 pm

      Any 5 year old can type in porn on Google and instantly have access to sexual acts that most adults have never seen. I don’t think people should be making illegal weapons, but the hypocrisy is blinding.

      • Bobo January 6, 2022, 2:52 am

        The only thing about making 80% firearms (aka: ghost guns) that would be illegal,would be if the person making it was already prohibited from owning firearms.

    • Jay January 15, 2022, 10:48 pm

      Oohhh, there is good old BlueBitch he/she/it. I was wondering where your cowardly ass went and why you didn’t comment on the other stories like the one where the elderly couple defending themselves against an intruder. Cause of the bullshit u spout would have left them without protection. Tired of hearing u drizzle splurge from ur that. Stay in England and take all these late night hosts back with u.
