yes. This is shotgun related.

This is a video of Rinaldo di Sabbati of Essevierre in Italy as he hand carves a stock for my shotgun. Youtube has made this age restricted because it might be inappropriate for children under 18.

I believe that going forward, this will not be the first or last time anything related to gun will be flagged.

Even the 1960s Sears Wish Books are flagged as inappropriate for children:



Back then Barbie dolls looked like Barbie dolls, and Roy Rogers had a gun and The Lobe Ranger had an Indian sidekick named Tonto, and Popeye smoked a pipe, the Coyote should have been killed twenty times an episode, often with Acme dynamite.

They’ve even scrubbed the cigarette holder from FDR’s mouth, almost 25 years ago.

But if you’ll listen to old country songs, they are still proudly politically incorrect, as ever.

If you think You-Tube has any interest in any manner of INTELIGENT control over what is posted up there, I feel bad for whomever has to dress you in the mornings.

And yes, it is ONLY going to get worse.

Screw Tube, go Rumble.

You didn't by chance title the video "Jerry Oils Up His Wood".

Which means it is firearm-related and weapons-related. This has been going on for years. It is called "age-restricted," meaning according to YouTube, under 18 years of age.

so children should not be exposed to firearms?
nobody needs to hunt until they are 18?
what is the interpretation?

oh,,,, I'm pretty sure ''uncle whoever oiling up his wood'' is perfectly acceptable though.

Depending on the quality of the wood, it may have been slightly pornographic.

I would like to point out that in the video in question, all you really see is a piece of wood and an old guy with a rasp. The barrels are never even seen anywhere in the video. THis is to be contrasted with those videos of a guy with a combat shotgun shooting rifled slugs into a human body shaped ballistic gelatin form containing a skeleton and then examining the destruction that this slug would inflict on an actual person. Youtube is putting them both in the same category, which is absurd.

saying that it is legitimate to call this gun related and restricting its access to children also leads to restricting a video where a guy does a review of an extended vs a flush fitting shotgun choke without ever even showing a complete gun, a gun being fired, the chokes being screwed into a barrel, or even seeing a shotgun barrel in the entire video.

Taking this further, youtube should be age restricting videos of Elmer Fudd waddling along with his double barrel because in the cartoon, a complete gun is seen. The absurdity should not be lost on anybody.

Don't know why this video was age restricted. There are other videos showing stock making that are not age restricted.

Yes, children should not be "exposed" to firearms.

In fact, ADULTS should not be "exposed" to firearms.

In fact, NO-ONE should be allowed to HAVE any firearms to "expose" ANYONE to.

There, that is the mindset running screw-tube.

It is not lost one anyone who can velcro their own shoes, in fact, the people who own Elmer Fudd now, currently, are airbrushing his shotgun OUT of the old films, got to remove the gun, and so they ARE.

Yes, it's stupid, it's morose, but it is what it is.

Completely accurate. No kid in the world would care about seeing that.
In fact I can't think of any person that would care about seeing someone
wood rasping a piece of wood for several minutes as interesting.

Ditto to what Oldstuffer says. I find all of the google crime family to offensive & inappropriate. That's why I boycott the lot of them!

I actually remember the '66 catalogue and got a couple of those toys for Christmas.
I sure would like to see the sporting goods section because in '66 you could still mail order a shotgun or rifle directly from Sears with no government oversight.

Don't tell them that. They want to make it about current politics.

Hi,

Don't be so quick to don the persecution sackcloth and ashes. This isn't just firearm related.

You do understand that these types of decisions are done with mathematical algorithms that are far from perfect. No human eye even looks at your video to decide to tag it. It's all done by computer math. Nor could goggle/youtube hire enough human eyes to do the job due the sheer volume of videos posted each day from around the world.

Even creative artists that make and own their own content get copyright strikes and their videos/music automatically taken down by these same algorithms that tagged your content. And they have no more recourse than you. And by sheer volume there is a whole lot more of that type of content than firearms content.

Be angry all you want, the system needs to be better. But don't feel special about it - you are far from the first and you won't be the last.
