It's a better late than never opt-out on YouTube's part, and to no surprise, Apopka-based gun manufacturer Spike's Tactical is now banned from the site - and for damn good reason, too.

YouTube's decision to tighten restrictions on gun videos comes with heightened tension in the United States gun debate.

To trigger the floating window, simply start playback of a video and then navigate away from it while remaining on YouTube.

The most popular Pakistani YouTubers like Irfan Junejo and Mooro would be quite happy seeing these new features and the people who watch their favorite YouTubers go live in real time is a dream come true for them. YouTube will also start taking down videos that provide instructions on manufacturing a firearm, ammunition, or installing modifications to a gun.

Stormy Daniels passed lie-detector test about Trump affair
The porn star, who claims she had an affair with Donald Trump , spoke out about her allegations against the president on Twitter . She took the test at the request of a USA magazine in a bid to discuss her alleged one-year affair with the billionaire.

That has failed to happen, with the new service providing a new set of benefits, like exclusive videos, playlists, and "other offerings that will appeal to die-hard music fans", according to Bloomberg.

"While we've long prohibited the sale of firearms, we recently notified creators of updates we will be making around content promoting the sale or manufacture of firearms and their accessories, specifically, items like ammunition, Gatling triggers, and drop-in auto sears", a YouTube spokesperson told Newsweek.

Thus, people won't write any negative "noise" against the video platform.

"YouTube's newly released released vague and one-sided firearms policy makes it abundantly clear that YouTube can not be counted upon to be a safe harbor for a wide variety of views and subject matter", reads a post on the InRangeTV Facebook page. Hiring a pro to create a professionally produced video could cost $1,000 or more.

In February, shortly after the Parkland, Florida, shooting that claimed 17 lives and reinvigorated the debate about gun control, YouTube attempted to clamp down on conspiracy videos.

The new YouTube policies will be enforced starting in April, but at least two video bloggers have already been affected.

"This is without question an attack on free speech", said Kit Cope, marketing director of Spike's Tactical.
