This is wild.

A handful of YouTubers have begun migrating their content over to PornHub, but not for the reason you'd expect.

In response to YouTube tightening their restrictions on gun-related content in the wake of the Florida high school shooting earlier this year, many gun enthusiasts have found a creative workaround to ensure their videos still see the light of day - putting them on PornHub.

YouTubers Karl Kasarda and Ian McCollum, who run the gun review channel InRangeTV, said they were posting their videos to PornHub because they want a "safe harbour for our content and for our viewers."

YouTube's new gun content rules prohibit videos that:

- Show how to make firearms, ammunition and silencers

- Attempt to sell guns and gun accessories that can turn normal guns into automatic firearms

- Teach people how to convert guns to automatic firearms

- Show how to install accessories or modifications that create automatic firearms.

Will PornHub let gun videos stay on their website?

PornHub have no such restrictions on their content at the moment, given that their main content stream is, y'know, porn. But considering that the website is typically progressive on social issues, it might not be long until these gun enthusiasts find their content homeless again.
