Youtube Gun Channel ‘Hickok45’ Temporarily Terminated by Google

If you’ve ever watched any of the video’s on hickok45’s YouTube channel (and I’m willing to bet that you have, since they get millions of page views), you probably know that his work isn’t controversial at all, and is apolitical for the most part. Even the ‘about’ section of his channel reads “You’re at a drama-free shooting channel!” hickok45 is simply an educational platform for firearms enthusiasts, and nothing more.

Unfortunately, some people will always be offended by the mere mention or depiction of firearms, no matter what the context is, which may be why Hickok’s channel was shut down by Google today. Hickok offered a possible explanation for the shut down to his fans this morning on Facebook:

“Apparently, Google + is more sensitive about firearms related postings and such. I never use Google+ and did not even realize the videos were being posted over there, I guess. I will keep you posted via Facebook here and the Hickok45andson channel. I have communicated with YouTube via email this morning, and hopefully, we’ll be able to get the channel back up soon. I had just posted a new video.”

After numerous complaints trickled in from his fans, his channel was reinstated this afternoon, without explanation. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Google+ would do this, considering how social media in general is rife with hypersensitive social justice warriors (also not surprising, is the fact Google employees contributed to Obama’s presidential campaign more than any other company, and their lobbyists have visited his administration hundreds of times). It just goes to show that when you live in a society that is dominated by political correctness, your ability to speak freely and reach the masses can be taken away at a moment’s notice.

    That guy is an awesome shot.

    • Helluva3ngineer

      I could be wrong but I believe he was a public school teacher in TN. He is everything that we need more of in this union.

      • NonYo Business

        The kind of teacher this country needs :) I love the way he shoots. I wish I had all the ammo he’s got!

  • Stewpedaso

    I have only seen one of his videos…it was the one where he shoots the 12 gauge slug from an impossible distance, or so I thought. I think I will now ask for an invite to his Facebook page and subscribe to his channel

    • Randy

      That video was probably the very first one I saw from him and thought it to be AWESOME!! So I forwarded it to a few people who also loved it! 900 feet for a slug shot into an old desk top makes me respect ANY man or woman! I think that he tapped it like 14 times out of 15 shots. Unreal for that distance! I think I’ll watch it again now just because I can!

    Updated to say that his channel has been restored. God bless him.

  • doucyet

    He has some very reviews on everything from a Ruger Mark II .22 to a Saiga 12ga.

    Typical of the tolerant left to shut him down and then make you fight to put it back up…………….

    It’s back up

  • Razedbywolvs

    Who is using Google+ and why would they do that?

    • http://www.shitsenders.com Я0llyJ0g3r

      Everybody is using google plus that has a youtube, facebook, yahoo, gmail, or twitter account whether they like it or not. They make a page FOR you, isn’t that nice of them?

    What that should really say is, “A team of crying, whimpering, disarmed pussies with delusions of a socialist utopia, where skittles shitting unicorns singing Kumbaya while handing out free everything to everyone at the expense of those evil producing entrepreneurs that didn’t build their own businesses and anyone caught displaying anything outside the mono-cultural blandness that their dream world offers is put down like a rabid dog, have complained to their Soviet superiors at the center for social justice to shut down this display of micro-aggression with racist overtones.”

    These wormy fucking cunts. I’ve been watching Hickok45 since 2010 and have learned a lot about guns I’ve never even heard of, from him. How dare this over sensitive pricks. However, I am glad to see his channel is back up.

    • SP_88

      A well worded rant about nanny state utopianism on steroids. I couldn’t have said it better myself. Glad to see his site has been restored. There are a lot of other sites that are more controversial than this one. I wonder why they targeted him. Perhaps they were just gauging the people’s reaction.

  • frankw

    Hitchcock45 conducte one of the most innocuous gun related sites on the internet. Why he should be singled out for this treatment is a mystery, especially since no explanation has been forthcoming from the imperious rulers of utube.

  • breakawaymotorsports .

    I’ve been a Hickok45 fan for many years. The reason the anti gunners hate him is he shows that guns are NOT evil and are actually fun. He has a great sense of humor and is quite humble. His videos are insightful and entertaining. We need more people like Hickok45 in this world and less Google-bots.

    And some silly Goyim imagine that this invasion of kamel fikking ISIS mutts is due to Agent Merkill’s “Christian” love for those whose lands her Washing town masters have turned to rubble.

    it was no accident
