    Youíve seen the headlines about Brownells losing its YouTube
    channel temporarily, about England forcing a gun supporter off
    internet, and about liberal bias at behemoth social media site.
    The answer, proposed by A1F contributor Frank Miniter was
    simple: We need our own YouTube site. Well, guess what? It
    exists.

    Outdoorsports.video provides a gateway for gun owners to share
    the love of their pastime with other like-minded people, and
    they wonít have to worry about getting booted off the site.

    Now, to be fair, this site isnít yet monetized to the degree
    YouTube is in that youíre not going to get rich by having
    millions of people click on your video. But itís certainly a
    step in the right direction.

    Denny LeFevre is the mastermind behind the plan. He currently
    funds the site with his retirement check (he is a retired master
    sergeant in the U.S. Armed Forces).

    The site, still in its infancy by most standards, started by
    legally embedding 3,000 videos from YouTube, LeFevre wrote in an
    email to A1F. That number has since dwindled to 600 as YouTube
    continues to cull its offerings that offend its liberal
    sensibilities

    To make up for the diminishing returns associated with YouTube, outdoorsports.video is encouraging people to upload original
    content. One goal, of course, is long-term growth, which could
    ultimately lead to a better payoff for those who post there,
    provided the site gets advertising support.

    But even now, LeFevre reports that the site is viable enough
    that the video owner who generates the most views every month
    gets a check for $50. As was mentioned earlier, youíre not going
    to get rich off it right now. But if enough gun backers thumb
    their noses at YouTube and invest their online time with
    outdoorsports.video, it will at least offer a way for believers
    in the Second Amendment to exercise their First Amendment rights
    as tbey pertain to guns.

    A cursory glance at the site shows a mix of hunting and
    defensive videos. If youíve got video clips youíd like to share,
    the sign-up process looks pretty straightforward.
