Stephen Paddock, the mass murderer, affixed bump stocks-a legal attachment that allows semiautomatic rifles to fire more rapidly-to a dozen of his guns.

In the wake of the brutal killings by shooting in Las Vegas, YouTube has chose to ban videos presenting modifying tools for guns to fire more rapidly. He killed at least 58 people and injured over 500, which is considered to be one of the deadliest mass shootings in modern USA history.

YouTube's policy on harmful or unsafe content censors "dangerous or illegal activities include instructional bomb making, choking games, hard drug use, or other acts where serious injury may result".
