Gun Accounts Turn to Rumble as YouTube Takes Aim at Firearm Content

Firearms video channels are moving their content to Rumble in the face of YouTube’s censorship campaign against gun accessory content as tracked by MRC Free Speech America’s unique CensorTrack database.

CensorTrack recorded censorship of five major YouTube firearms accounts due to gun accessory content. Four firearms channels, including one that has yet to be censored, are now promoting their Rumble channels following the wave of YouTube restrictions, according to Reclaim the Net. Some of the content creators are still posting on YouTube but now are taking advantage of the ability to post censored content on Rumble instead. YouTube claimed that putting legal accessories on firearms constituted weapon modification and violated its firearms policy.

YouTube deleted content that demonstrated gun silencers/suppressors and high capacity magazines from the Mrgunsngear, Garand Thumb, Top Shot Dustin, NFA Review Channel, and Forgotten Weapons channels. The accounts also received warnings or strikes and Mrgunsngear was temporarily suspended. The platform allows a warning and two strikes within 90 days before entirely deleting the account from the platform. Strikes cause temporary suspensions, which would explain Mrgunsngear’s suspension. 

When asked about the restrictions, YouTube restored Top Shot Dustin’s video “Worlds Tiniest Folding Suppressed 22!” and Forgotten Weapons’ video “Knight’s XM9 Beretta ‘Hush Puppy’ – For USAF Survival Kits” to YouTube after their initial Jan. 30 and Jan. 27 deletion.  A YouTube spokesperson told MRC Free Speech America that, “Upon review, we determined the videos in question are not violative of our Community Guidelines and have reinstated them.”
