Led by the students of the Florida school shooting - who are America's next voters.
Not enough to matter, and even most of them are pro-gun.

And they'd rather be on PornHub than give up their creations.

"YouTube has banned videos that show people how to manufacture or modify guns and their accessories.
...
Prominent gun video-bloggers said the move was an erosion of US citizens' rights, and some said they would move their content to PornHub instead."

This is the really scary thing, that Facebook and Youtube are manipulating the world view, biasing it towards their minority fraction of the American viewpoint, just as newspaper owners could do in the last century on a national basis, but the reach of this curtailment is global, so more damaging. Pornhub could easily get, er, swallowed up by google for example, then back to square one. Another interesting point, is, will the popularly funded Billag respect the viewpoint of its subscribers, or get dominated by the liberal left as most media organisations seem to do these days.

It's called capitalism, profit maximisation by for-profit companies. No more no less.

Expect even more deaths from guns in the near future. 3D printed gun blueprints cleared to go back online.

It can't form complex machines. Guns and explosives have chemicals, moving parts. It doesn't work that way. But it can form solid plastic shapes.
