YouTube will start cracking down on some videos that feature firearms.
The company rolled out new guidelines Monday banning content that shows how to assemble or manufacture "a firearm, ammunition, high capacity magazine, homemade silencers/suppressors, or certain firearms accessories." The company will also block videos that promote or link to websites that sell firearms or some accessories.
A YouTube spokesperson reportedly said the company will start enforcing the guidelines in April.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation said in a statement that YouTube's announcement is "troubling" and argued the site will block more content than it says it will.
Bloomberg reports a YouTube spokesperson said the company routinely updates and adjusts enforcement guidelines.
