Should Youtube Gun enthusiasts be required to wear ear and eye protection?
Projection of safety while using firearms
And how will we enforce that? given the anonymity of the Internet, and considering all the more reckless things that people post on YouTube, I think it would be a futile exercise.
How are you going to monitor that? Do you think we can pop up behind people at will and say, "Oh, no, young one. You must fire arms the safe way" with a cheesy smile and thumbs up? And no, that's what makes it so funny. That they are not being professional about it. Even when they are wearing ear and eye protection, if they are foolish with their weapons, they will still get harmed.
Let's say, a channel with a high amount of views. Is it not reckless to operate firearms unsafely?
I just said they are not professional. Yes, it is reckless. Makes for good entertainment. But here's a thought. "What makes you think criminal's follow gun laws?" Not everyone is going to go by the rules, and monitoring it wouldn't be too disastrous.
But regardless of YouTube factor, there are reckless people around the world that use guns without protection or disregarding other safety precautions. The rules and policies are there, whether they are being filmed or not. They just choose to ignore
We have a gun problem in the United States. It's not the fact that we have guns.. It's the fact that kids are watching these videos on youtube, and are getting hurt. They see live people doing unsafe things. They think invincibility.
I understand that, but there are tools already in place for this. If you think a certain video represents a certain violation, YouTube allows you to report that video. On the other hand, due to the nature of the Internet, it's impossible to contain.
We have a disrespect of gun problem. If you would notice there are towns that require by law everyone to have a gun. Robbery is almost non-existent and no one has died from a gun in 25 years in one of those towns. It's all about respect.
Anyone who has proper training already knows this.
It is included with the instruction manual with every gun as are most other safety measures and most strongly urge proper training classes.
There is no way to regulate youtube and to do so is going to hurt rather than help.
In a nutshell it's not Youtube's problem,,, or ours for that matter.
It is, our problem. We have tons of kids going into the world with a misunderstanding of firearms.
You can also find a large number of gun safety videos on Youtube.
Personally I think it should be required in every school. We had gun safety day when I was in school. My Dad took us to an NRA training center when I was old enough, about 7 or 8.
It was required for us in grade school, in order to be in ag classes extracurricular, you had to have hunter's safety classes.
Yes. They should. In the first place they should serve as a good example to the viewers and the second is that it's for their own safety even if they are in or out of the gun range.

Should MLB pitchers be required to wear helmets?Base coaches are required to wear helmets however, pitchers are considerably closer to the hitter after they have delivered the pitch and are not required to wear helmets. Is this logical?

His message speaks of an unfair system focusing on the elite and powerful. Let’s be honest and acknowledge what we are talking about. We are talking about a rapid movement in this country toward a political system in which a handful of very wealthy people and special interests will determine who...
