With last weeks’ re-launch of our video sharing platform, many, were excited at the idea of being able to share their videos once again. Just days ago, our assistant editors made the announcement that gun videos (to an extent) would be allowed on the pages of our centralized video home page.
However, after the March for Our Lives protests in New York City Saturday, such is no longer the case. Khane has reversed the announcement ordering an indefinite ban on gun videos and any link to a website that promotes them. Such links and videos are indefinitely banned on our servers, and, users who attempt to upload them risk having their entire IP address and identifying information indefinitely recorded and barred from ever visiting these websites again.
The strict policy comes after Khane witnessed the protests himself. And, in memory of a dear friend Ava Le’Ray Barrin, the decision to block gun related content comes at a time in which gun violence has gone on long enough.
