YouTube is banning gun videos, so creators are now uploading them on Pornhub

There’s a long overdue wave of concern over the use of guns in America, which includes new YouTube policies regarding videos that involve weapons. Digital Music News reports:

A stepped-up ban includes videos involving direct sales of guns or those with links to sites that sell them.

Bloomberg has also reported that YouTube videos cannot have tutorials on manufacturing firearms or associated items like magazines or silencers.  “We routinely make updates and adjustments to our enforcement guidelines across all of our policies,” a company spokesperson told DMN.

“While we’ve long prohibited the sale of firearms, we recently notified creators of updates we will be making around content promoting the sale or manufacture of firearms and their accessories.”

Okay, so what’s the option for those who want to upload gun videos? Pornhub.

Pro-gun video creators have turns to the porn network to reach their audiences. Again from Digital Music News:

A channel devoted to firearms, InRange TV, already stated through Facebook that it will begin uploading videos to an adult content website, PornHub.

InRange TV posted that “YouTube’s newly-released vague and one-sided firearms policy makes it abundantly clear that YouTube cannot be counted upon to be a safe harbor for a wide variety of views and subject matter.”

“For this reason, InRange TV is pleased to announce its expansion onto the PornHub network.”

Er, okay. This could end up redefining the term “money shot.”
