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.

Do what you can; then do what you must
We will all see video's on how to get along and be more tolerant.
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."
"Liberals can decline or whine, but I will still carry and conceal mine." - Cold Warrior. Excellent quote good sir!
"Outside of the killings, Washington has one of the lowest crime rates in the country,"
--Mayor Marion Barry, Washington , DC .
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.
"I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power, than by violent and sudden usurpations” – James Madison 1788
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.
