See YouTube restricts gun videosNo kidding. Along with shady/dangerous/marginally illegal stuff they want to ban videos of making ammunition. I make ammunition, almost all the centre-fire ammunition I’ve ever fired I made. I teach others about it. YouTube wants to ban that.
I have no idea why that should be banned. It’s not particularly dangerous compared to roller-skating, snowboarding, downhill skiing etc. which are OK in their books. It’s not illegal. One can buy tools and components for reloading at Wal-Mart or Canadian Tire. It’s also a form of recycling hazardous materials and reducing littering as the cartridges and lead bullets may be recycled by ordinary folk. That’s good for the environment. It allows one to make better ammunition at a lower price than what one can buy in stores. Is YouTube against reducing costs and increasing performance? Where would they be without such goals? Using dial-up and static HTML?
Give us a break YouTube or I will ban YouTube. I can do that. I control my router. For what it’s worth, I sent YouTube my feedback…
