As you may have already heard, firearms and parts retailer Brownells was removed from YouTube and later reinstated without a detailed explaination as to which community guidelines had been violated that landed them in social media jail. Although the channel’s return is a victory for both Brownells and consumers alike, the trend towards demonetizing videos and removing channels that feature firearm related content appears to be gaining steam.
We can argue First Amendment and private business regulations until everyone is blue in the face, but at the end of the day it is becoming clear that a migration to a less hostile environment is needed. The problem is that firearms specific video platforms generally don’t draw the huge advertising dollars that open media brings along with its billions of viewers.
For now, enjoy what remains of the content we still can access on YouTube.
