    Google is not pro firearm.

    That said, what makes you guys think you are stuck with google or youtube? I'm sure some site will be able to host a video or make a search engine that doesn't restrict your searches. Typically as technology companies get too overbloated, opinionated, and incredibly too invasive - people tend to ditch them for more streamlined technology. Look at antivirus suites like Norton and McAfee. Look at AOL. Look at myspace. Once a certain entity begins to suck, some entrepreneur will step up to the plate and offer a better alternative.

    Thanks guys. Regardless of what you think would happen, save them anyway. You're already on the computer. Take the time and save a few. All the popular browsers have extensions that allow you to save Youtube videos.

    It's happened before:

    If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."

    Normally I would agree with this. But, look at the latest news about Coke giving in to Bloomberg and the fat police.

    So far I've saved some Glock, AR, AK,1911 detail strip/reassemble vids. I need to save the ITS Tactical "Build Your Own AR-15" series of videos.
    While your at it better buy all the parts you may ever need,you can have all the how to videos in the world,but if you can't buy a gun or the parts it's just wishful thinking

    All gun related videos should be edited to include a background picture of Dear Leader or similar elected official. They'd never ban free publicity.

    Guns and information about guns were available wayyy before YouTube, Google, Facebook & the rest of em' ever appeared on the scene. Who cares if Youtube takes a kumbaya stand? With rare exception, the VAST majority of the firearm-related videos are posted by chuckle-headed ego-maniacs who don't know "come heah" from "sic 'em" about guns anyway. It's like being worried about what Oprah & Whoopie think about all this.
    There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.
