A bump stock device alters a gun to make it fire in a similar fashion to a fully automatic weapon.
YouTube announced Tuesday that it is banning certain gun modification tutorials in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting. He killed at least 58 people and injured over 500, which is considered to be one of the deadliest mass shootings in modern USA history.
A quick search of YouTube shows many videos related to bump stocks, but all of them in an informative, demonstrative, or otherwise non-DIY way.
"We have long had a policy against harmful and risky content", a YouTube spokesperson said in a statement.
YouTube is banning videos that show viewers how to modify guns to make them more deadly like bump stocks, one week after the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas. The company updated its community guidelines to reflect the policy change, The Telegraph reported earlier. Yet hours after the announcement, the site still hosted numerous videos showing how to install and use the devices. It often requires quite some time for censors to review and remove content from the site due to the sheer number of videos to wade through.
