YouTube has a new policy on gun videos.

Content featuring homemade and automatic firearms will be banned for viewers under 18. Tutorials for removing safety devices will be prohibited altogether.

YouTube spokesperson Javier Hernandez wrote, “These updates to our firearms policy are part of our continued efforts to maintain policies that reflect the current state of content on YouTube. For example, 3D printing has become more readily available in recent years so we’re expanding our restrictions on content involving homemade firearms. We regularly review our guidelines and consult with outside experts to make sure we are drawing the line at the right place.”Click Youtube Sticker

The restrictions won’t affect video games, film clips or other artistic content.
