YouTube Bans Bump Stock Instructional Videos

Youtube

The world's top video sharing platform said Monday that it would ban videos of bump stocks, the accessories believed to have been used by Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock to mimic fully automatic fire. The spokesperson said the company has "long had a policy against harmful and risky content".

YouTube and other social media sites must do more to take down rap videos that are stoking violence as gun crime rises, says Scotland Yard's gangs specialist. That includes videos that are trying to sell or promote firearms, as well as conversion devices and a device called a bump stock.

British mother Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe facing 16 more years in Iranian jail
The first 130 days of her imprisonment were spent in solitary confinement between Kamran Prison and later Evin Prison. Every day that they are keeping my daughter away from me, from both her parents, they will be punished.

In the wake of the shooting in Las Vegas, the deadliest in United States history, it emerged the gunman had modified his weapon to make it fire like an automatic rifle. The National Rifle Association said recently that it would support a restriction on bump stocks, but that it opposed an outright ban. Such devices allow firearm owners to take advantage of a gun's recoil to simulate an automatic rifle's ability to fire rounds in rapid succession, while not violating laws banning automatic weapons. This change was confirmed and there is now apparently an update to the community guidelines of the service.

One user wrote, "YouTube is removing bump-fire videos and issuing strikes to channels that have them, seriously, WTF YouTube?"
