Spaghetti and meatballs. Horse and carriage. Peas and carrots. Guns and porn.
As of this month, YouTube has updated their safety guidelines and all videos promoting the sale of firearms, as well as instructional gun modification videos, will be banned. The purveyors of said content receive 30 days’ notice to edit or remove their videos from the popular site.
Unsurprisingly, these gun-toting, God-fearing folk won’t go down without a fight. According to Spike’s Tactical, a firearms dealer based in Florida, irrational hemp-wearing, tree-hugging leftists like myself are to blame for this newly initiated content lockdown.
“The Liberal Left will slowly chip away at our freedoms and erode our rights, and the first step is to squelch our voice. To say we’re f*cking pissed is an understatement.” – Facebook post by Spike’s Tactical
As Spike’s Tactical so eloquently states, their first and second amendment rights are being aggressively trampled beneath the feet of those who believe that making videos on how to manufacture a faster firing rifle, and distributing them on such a widely-used platform, might not be the greatest idea. YouTube has roughly 1.3 billion monthly users, some of who are undoubtedly impressionable children, troubled teens, violent losers, mentally ill terrorists, overall despicably cruel, hateful people, etc.
But a perfect solution was waiting in the wings for those who are having a hell of a time letting go of their guns and their gun-related regular programming. InRangeTV, a gun-enthusiast’s online haven, has decided to migrate their videos to PornHub. In the event that you’re not one of the site’s 81 million daily users, Pornhub is a website chock full of, you guessed it, pornography.
Video producers Ian McCollum (think of a mélange of Kurt Russell in “Tombstone” and Pecos Bill) and military hipster comb-over king Karl Kasarda have transferred their content to the beloved porno site to showcase their videos, one of which compares a Glock 19 and a Hudson H9. Nifty! My hopes are high that their inevitable porn crossover film (please, God, let them call it “Gun Nuts”) will be released this summer and pave the way to an award-winning multi-million-dollar franchise to come in the near future.
If you want to post gun stuff online, be my guest, but perhaps on a different platform that isn’t as easily accessible as YouTube.
