Online Gun Stores Push Back Against Technocratic Censorship

One has to wonder if the text of the Constitution itself will soon be infringed online. 

The Second Amendment is not some flippant or trite hobby for a small fraction of Americans, nor is exercising your right to bear arms a political statement.  This is an inalienable right, as granted to us by our founding fathers who had more experience with overthrowing tyrannical governments than anyone alive today.

So, the opinions being fomented on the subject from within the technocratic slog of social media are just that:  Opinions.

Perhaps that’s why so many online firearms retailers are bucking back against Big Tech.

After Karl Kasarda’s YouTube channel, InRange TV, was wiped without warning in early 2018, the firearm enthusiast said he had little option but to turn to posting clips and reviews on a platform of a different kind: PornHub.

He said navigating the social media landscape when it comes to the Second Amendment is only becoming more frustrating and confusing.

“The issue of oligarchical control over the Internet and all the impact over the ability to use it for free speech is going to only get worse,” Kasarda told Fox News, alluding to the “big five” — YouTube, Google, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

“It is unclear what the rules are,” he added. “Specifically, with YouTube, they pretty much enforce whatever they feel based on their bias of the day. Regardless of your personal belief, firearms and their accessories are legal in the United States. So why are we seeing continuing restrictions and challenges towards content about something demonstrably legal yet not against that which is clearly illegal?”

And that’s not all:

Moreover, Google deems firearm-related content to be in the “non-family safe” category and Twitter proclaims its extensive prohibition of “the promotion of weapons and weapon accessories globally.” This includes airsoft guns, paintball guns and antiques, and “other self-defense weapons,” ranging from stun guns and maces to pepper spray and taser guns.

Gun rights activists say that a renewed anti-gun push took hold in 2018, in the lead-up to that year’s primary elections, led by the Google-owned YouTube, which moved very aggressively against gun postings. Hundreds of law-abiding users claim to have lost videos and often a chunk of their livelihoods.

The tech giants shut down historic even gun accounts. At that time, YouTube took it upon itself to abruptly cancel the popular channel for the 80-year-old firearms parts company Brownells, without notice, the company said as it appealed to its followers to file complaints.

One has to wonder if the text of the Constitution itself will soon be infringed online.
