“blackdiesel”Conspiracy theorists don’t start clutching your pearls.   There is no way possible for someone at youtube to review all the video uploads.  I’m sure it’s an algorithm to weed out some of the dangerous and distasteful videos.  Anytime there’s no restrictions to a form of media there are good, bad and stupid people utilizing it.  For every great gun video there’s the video of some fool having their kid shoot a 12 gauge shotgun improperly and getting injured.


Blackdiesel is right. It’s much less about a left wing conspiracy and more about the almighty dollar. Google/YouTube is an advertising company first and foremost and they live and die by the support of advertisers. 

This has been happening to non-gun related channels as well because big name advertisers are complaining to YouTube about their ads appearing on “controversial” videos so YouTube starts to tweak its magic formula and then this crap happens. There are less and less advertisements on gun related videos I watch now compared to a year ago. If I see that stupid iTarget ad one more time… LOL
