Hard to believe youtube would do that.

There's much anger on the interwebs.

    What a bunch of bullsqueeze! Not that it is unexpected. It is a real shame that my anger meter pegs less and less for this type of action.

    It appears that Brownell's videos are back up. I just checked and they seem to be all there. Maybe some outrage and backlash made YouTube rethink their decision?

    Okay. I searched for Brownells on youtube and found NOTHING before I posted this.

    HOPEFULLY, they (youtube) came to their senses.

    I too am seeing nothing.

    Just type in Brownell's in the search box and their videos come up. At least for me. Just tried it again and that works. YouTube must have shut down their channel, but the videos are still up. Weird.

    Still nothing. I see videos that reference Brownells and are copies of, but that's it. Their channel is GONE! They have a lot of work to do if they want to scrub all of it. I will cancel all 4 profiles in this house.

    YouTube announced months ago (after parkland?) They were going to stop allowing how to gun videos.

    I get nothing other than the link CPJ posted. That sucks.

    Lots of 'Gun' videos are still up on YouTube. Wasn't there something about not paying any money for hits for a lot of videos like they were?

    And in further news of how stupid antis are, ebay has declared 10/22s and 15-22s to be assault weapons and will no longer allow tandemkross to sell parts for them.

    Which, surprisingly enough, is the day I started this thread

    On their website today the scrolling banner has a 'Special Thanks For Keeping our YT Ch alive' coupon/sale........................so maybe it is fixed now?

    It's back up for me. Did not scroll through to see if the "how-to" video's are still up. I hope my nasty message helped... :*
