Two popular gun channels on YouTube have had their channels removed due to vague violations of the online video provider’s community guidelines.
Reid Henrichs of Valor Ridge and The Shooters Mindset have both been suspended in the past week just months after Hickok45’s channel was repeatedly taken down over a conflict with Google Plus though it is not believed the tie-in with the G+ is related to this latest incident.
Started in 2013, TSM’s YouTube page now reads “This account has been suspended due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy against spam, gaming, misleading content, or other Terms of Service violations.”
TSM is unsure of exactly what caused their channel to be snipped and what guideline they violated, and as such is asking for help.
Hendrichs, a Marine veteran and former adjunct professor for Nashville State Community college, is associated with Valor Ridge, a firearms and tactics training company in Harrogate, Tennessee.
Hendrichs reports that he was caught in some sort of “gotcha” complaint that led to his channel being shut down, though his content is still available on Full30 which is geared directly towards the Second Amendment community but has a much more shallow reach.
