More Youtube Gun Censorship
« on: June 15, 2024, 08:58:43 AM »
Youtube is apparently ramping up their already ongoing firearm censorship. I saw a couple of guntuber vids that talked about the guidelines they're getting making these "enhancements" much more difficult to follow. I note in the article below that Youtube says that they "consult with outside experts in the field" to ensure they are "drawing the line at the right place". I'm sure we can guess who many of the "experts" are.

Interesting, because I was seeing a commercial for Hempvana, a pain relieving cream "starring" a SGT Markham, which showed him doing a little shooting with a bolt rifle and in a handgun competition.

I was pleased seeing that as an "inroad" to the anti gunner's little stupid world, but about a week or so ago all of a sudden the commercial had changed, still with him as the "star," but zero shooting.

Are the stupid people winning after all?

I can't find a copy with him shooting.

Sooner or later, law output will become greater than Court input.

YT has said no full auto so here's Brandon Herrera giving YT the middle finger, sort of*, with a Ma Duce

*It's semi

If you know this, then I'm sorry, but in case you missed the tounge in cheek:

That's a Full Auto M2.  An M2 has a mode selector that lets you run it in single shot mode and locks the bolt to the rear, forcing you to hit the bolt release (that button in the middle of the butterfly trigger) to send the bolt home and chamber the next round.  In the shots where Brandon is holding the trigger and getting one shot, it's in single shot mode.

In the wide shot's where he's "pulling the trigger really fast" he's put it back in auto and it's shooting automatically. 

FWIW, if your interested the "selector" is just a metal clip that holds the bolt release button down.  An M2 fires from a closed bolt, unlike most other beltfed's in US Inventory.

No I took him serious and didn't look any closer when he said it was a semi and he said he also owns a full auto M2.
I can count the number of times I've shot a M2 with just the fingers on one foot.

That's why I went ahead and said something.  It's subtle unless you've shot one.  It makes the middle finger to YT funnier IMO.

Man does Google suck. Hickok45, everybody's favorite grandpa, who has one of the most unassuming channels on youtube, has just had all his recent content pulled and may lose a bunch more.

Why? Because part of the new youtube rules are that no one can have channel sponsors who have anything to do with the firearms industry. Which is what, 99% of the sponsored youtube gun guys?
