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.
