    It looks like “they” are pulling many Airgun, Hunting, and Shooting channels down. Here is the most resent message From Giles at Airgun Gear Show.

    How can we, members, help or lobby against this?

    When the ADA (American Dental Association) want to lobby an issue they have a form letter sent to all members which we then attach our names and e-mail it to our elected officials. The theory is that if enough members voice their opinion the message will be heard. I understand U-tube is not the Government, however, could We as AGN (and other forums) come up with a form letter that we could then flood e-mails to Google. This could let Google know that we are a large enough population that can influence the market. Not sure if this will work but doing nothing will most likely result in more channels being pulled down. 
    Just thinking out loud,

    I think it is important to voice our opinion.

    The love of money is the root of all evil. The focus of Youtube now is money. And when money talks, liberty walks. Without liberty, there is only tyranny. When tyranny reigns, the people are impoverished. How many times does the world have to re-learn this costly lesson? Shame on you, Youtube. You now fawn at the feet of corporate mammon. Enjoy your tyranny while it lasts.

    I would sign the petition. However, we are begging and pleading to be able to pretty please let us stay in their radical club.  
    I think it is high time to have a GunTube or the like. My God, are there no techies amongst us? Is there no cash to support the industry? We are a community, and we have enough resources to get this done. Stop begging for table scraps, and cook our own feast!

    Instead trying to create a new tool use the ones already established
    NRA
    AHSA

     
     and many other outdoor parties that swing a big stick get them involved in this 
    That is after all what we pay them for!

    I love the idea of a guns version of youpubes.. would probably go with something like ShotStream to distance the site from the tube.. I’m gonna do some research into what it would take to get going.  If it looks like something I could pull off, then we’ll do it.. Would have to set up a gofundme to pay for the server, but i doubt it would be an issue to raise enough.. will keep you guys posted

    I have complained to YouTube about their mistreatment of firearms related channels and I think we all should do the same. I would sign a petition or send any form letter. Count me in.

    How can you be prejudiced against a sport?  Just because you don’t like something you ban it. There shooting  in the Olympics. Will they ban that from youtube?  I wouldn’t think they  would people to leave youtube would you?

    I didn’t get a chance to view the op’s video link before YouTube deleted it. Anyone have a working link to this video?

    Think bigger.  The entire gun community can ban google too.  I hope it doesn’t come to that, and they come to their senses.  The loss of advertising revenues would hit them hard.  I plan to quit using my gmail account too.  I’ve been using bing the last six months to avoid google and find it a great search engine.  I don’t like google practices with my info anyways.  We are a big population and it’s time we rise up or get railroaded.
