Five liberal senators are demanding video sharing platform, YouTube immediately remove videos about gun making, blaming them for so-called “ghost gun” shootings. In a letter to YouTube’s CEO, Susan Wojcicki, the senators said that the platform has not been doing enough to remove videos about ghost guns.
The Washington Examiner reports:
The five, led by ardent gun-control advocate Sen. Richard Blumenthal, wrote without evidence that “ghost guns have become the weapon of choice for gun traffickers and convicted felons as well as domestic violent extremists and foreign terrorists. Federal, state, and local law enforcement officials have sounded the alarm that these untraceable firearms present a distinct and deadly threat and have exacerbated the scourge and surge of gun violence that has ravaged communities all across the United States.”
The legal firearms have been cited by police as a tiny slice of the guns used in crimes, though they have been seized on by anti-gun politicians as a symbol of gun violence.
They are not classified by the government as firearms because they are not fully functioning guns when sold in kits, and thus, do not require any serial number, which can be traced. Kits can be purchased online and at gun shows and require some construction to turn into working firearms. At last week’s NRA-sponsored Great American Outdoors Show in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, there were at least two booths offering the “80% gun” kits, but there were few buyers when Secrets was observing.
Gun advocates have taken to YouTube to warn that the letter threatens their Second Amendment rights
The senators have made it clear they won’t stop until YouTube addresses the videos.
“Until YouTube devotes the time and resources necessary to actually enforce its Community Guidelines, the claim that safety is your highest priority rings hollow. YouTube can — and must — do more to ensure that the content it hosts does not exacerbate the threat of ghost guns,” wrote the five.
Liberal Senators Demand………………….tell these liberal Senators to go suck an egg. We don’t give a rat’s patootie what their DEMANDS are.
Here we go with the “Awaiting for approval”. And this sight REFUSES to identify WHO it is that has to APPROVE. Cowards!
Why are you on a Communist site?
Very few “ghost guns” are made, let alone marketed. The operative question is whether or not such a law involves a 1st Amendment violation. And another important question would ask how an oppressed public would defend itself in the event that a democrat surge wiped out private ownership of firearms. If such an extreme existed, peaceable, lawful citizens would be deprived of any effective method of self defense. Seems we’re back to the worn but effective reply: molon labe.
We the people will not grive up our rights to the 2 amendment the constitution grives use the right to bear arms. An it ca not be taken away buy no grovements
The democrat surge wiped out full auto, semi is next.
The only way we can protect ourselves from the Government is Nukes!!!
I demand that these gun kits continue to be sold. They are a legal product that allows people who can’t afford a factory built gun to assemble one for their personal protection. These laws against kits won’t affect criminals at all, criminals will still get guns by stealing them as they already do. All the gun control laws in the world won’t stop gun theft. All the laws affect only poor citizens who lack money to buy a quality gun. Arresting criminals and jailing them will have far more effect if Soros’ DA’s are prevented from turning violent felons loose with no arrest for even murder. Revolving doors for criminals doesn’t work, they need arrests and prison terms to stop recidivists and remove them from legal society. DA’s who release violent felons should be arrested and and charged with aiding and abetting felons in their crimes. Guns are not the problem, but putting violent criminals back on the street with no punishment is a recipe for disaster.
I demand that every man woman and child be able to buy gun kits.
Schools should have how to assemble classes.
How many guns are in the hands of crimminals?
How many have been reported stolen?
Did Soros have DA’s under Trump?
Is Soros stronger than Trump?
Why did Trump fail to lock Soros up along side Hillary?
Trump is a weak puke?
