In a move that is both shocking and unsurprising at the same time, the video hosting powerhouse YouTube has terminated Brownells’ channel citing violations of their “community guidelines”. In the professional business of gunsmithing, tools, parts supply, accessories and more recently firearms sales, Brownells has been a pillar of the shooting community for nearly 100 years. While countless old-fashion catalog sales companies died off with the ecommerce revolution, Brownells adapted, embracing online sales and customers with an easy to navigate website and strong social media presence.

In the 1920s and 1930s, Bob Brownell was a middle-America businessman who owned and managed a gas station and sandwich shop in his small hometown, Montezuma, Iowa. In his free time, Bob was a devoted shooter and outdoorsman who enjoyed repairing and customizing firearms. He started by working on his own guns, but news of his talent spread quickly and he soon began accepting jobs from friends. By 1938, his gunsmithing hobby was making profits, so Bob added part-time gunsmith to his list of businesses.

It is unclear at this point what part of the community guidelines YouTube alleges that Brownells violated to get terminated or if there is a possibility of being reinstated. However, as channels with a heavy following continue to receive strikes, warnings and terminations, the fate of user and corporate generated firearms content on YouTube are becoming bleaker by the week.

This was just posted on Facebook !
“With the massive volume of videos on our site, sometimes we make the wrong call,” a YouTube spokesperson said in a statement Monday afternoon. “When it’s brought to our attention that a video or channel has been removed mistakenly, we act quickly to reinstate it.”

Brownells spokesman Ryan Repp said he was unclear what happened. But in discussing with others in the industry, it appeared that several firearm-related accounts received some type of sanction from YouTube over the weekend.

They violated community guidelines. Usually moderation bans those who violate the rules. Nothing to see here.
