Default YouTube going after gun channels

Paul Harrell mentioned that his YT channel was recently demonetized as well as other gun channels. He doesn’t want to sell merchandise but it may become necessary and even a sponsor in order to stay afloat.

Wonder how many other gun channels have been demonetized?

I believe John Lovett had mentioned something like this in the past.

Seems that many of them have migrated to Patreon to help recover their time investment into posting videos. I have done a few videos so can appreciate what is required to put together a quality video.

Some people do well, I think the majority of guys are just happy if they make enough to pay for their equipment and make something for their time spent filming and editing.

This has been happening for a long time. Thatís why the big names all have sponsors. It allows them to make whatever content they want and still make money.

Youtube is owned by Google. What did you expect? All they wanna do is pander to people who don't know if they're supposed to use the men's room or the ladies room.

Eric Cortina mentions this in a couple of his reloading videos. When referring to his rifle or bullets, the term "freedom delivery machine" or "freedom seed" is used. Made me laugh but actually sad how crazy censorship exists today.

Big channels can make money but a hunting/shooting related channel with 10-15K subscribers regularly putting out videos that get 5k-30k views won't make but $100-$200/max a month. It takes a BIG channel to generate real money on Youtube.

Your numbers are a little off. I have a YT channel that has 7k subs. I put out 2-3 videos per week that average 1k views and I make 3 times per month that what you are suggesting. It's still not a lot compared to my full-time job but it is enough that my wife was able to quit her full time job and focus more on YT.

Demolition Ranch has 10 million subs and is demonitized. He has sponsors for videos all the time that supplement what he's loosing.

Theyíve been getting demonetized for years now. Okay nice someone gains traction they have to start getting sponsors for videos instead of just relying on add revenue. Gets annoying but itís owned by google so no less is expected

An owner of one gun channel said his videos are even being edited without his consent. And his videos are nothing edgy or controversial whatsoever. Some viewers have noticed the irregularities and so he responded publicly about the peculiar YT editing thatís been going on.
