    Okay I’m sorry but WHY ARE YALL SO DUMB, I have never gone to school scared that someone was going to shoot to me, my little brother and sister in school right now they do not have active shooter drill‘s they have fire drills. This is because they are UNHEARD of here, In Canada we have the STRICTEST gun laws, the only shooting you hear about are gang related and those are idiots shooting each other over money and drugs, there not involving the public. People are not mentally stable enough for a weapon that can kill hundreds of people with one clip im sorry but what do you need a gun for? If no one had guns, no one would need them, why are you letting your children die for no reason?

    The students got guns and went to a gunfree zone. I dont think qrming teachers is smart but schools need better security and protocol. In the US studies show more guns do prevent crime/doesnt increase it. We need better security and need to be more aware of the people around us.

Not sure if you've heard, but the SBSK (special books for special kids) channel on BR-channel has had their comment section removed on all their videos indefinitely. They had a petition out there and I think 300,000 people or so had signed it. Would love if you covered this story.

      He did a stream on Friday where he said that even before the terrorist attack that he'd already decided to not do a Friday show. So i'd imagine that he'll get to it tomorrow. There have been more details that have come out since then, such as the death toll sadly hitting 50 and New Zealand's PM saying that they'll pay for funeral expenses as well as help the families financially, so he has a clearer story to work with now.

    Hey Phil, I really respect what you do and there is a situation on BR-channel that I think you could shed a light on. A channel called SBSK has had all their comments removed, and it’s a critical component to the community. There is no reason BR-channel should have done this, and it is unfair. They even met with representatives from BR-channel, but they were unqualified to answer almost all of their questions and left SBSK with no answers with the excuse that only “higher ups” in the company could answer their questions. It’s a travesty, especially for such a wholesome community committed to spreading awareness and the message that all people deserve love regardless of any disability. If you could even just watch their most recent video and tweet out their petition I think that would really help them get the answers from BR-channel and get their comment section back up. Love ya Phil! Keep on making the world a better place (: #unsilencesbsk

    PHIL, please take a look at what BR-channel is doing to the channel SBSK (special books for special kids) that showcases all sorts of disabilities to help reduce the stigma against them. BR-channel is discriminating against their channel, tuning off comments on all of their videos because they are "high risk for predatory comments" with no other explanation. I have never seen a single negative comment on their videos and the people in the videos love reading the comments and feeling the love from the community. Please, please check out their latest video explaining the situation. They even set up a petition to get comments enabled again and last I checked that had about 300,000 signatures.

    In Scotland all handguns, semi-automatic and pump-action non-rim-fire rifles are prohibited.This was in response to The Dunblane school massacre which took place on 13 March 1996, where 16 children and one teacher were shot dead before the gunman killed himself. It remains the deadliest mass shooting in British history. Public debate about the killings centred on gun control laws, including public petitions calling for a ban on private ownership of handguns and an official inquiry. In response to this debate, two Firearms Acts were passed, which outlawed private ownership of most handguns in Great Britain.There are only 566 licensed handgun owners in Scotland.

    we need to start teaching kids how to deal with bullies, instead of trying to stop bullying. we can never stop bullying. it has always been and will always be. it is a human condition. but we can teach kids how to deal with bullies, like pretty much everyone was up till 2 decades ago. Now we dont talk to the ones being bullies, instead we teach them they deserve not to be beullied and instead of sitting them down and talkign to them, we run to the principles or authorities going after bullies and completely ignore the bullied. failure.

    Hey Phil! I’m not sure if you’ve heard of the SBSK chanel. Their comments have been unfairly disabled by BR-channel despite having really positive comments and nobody ever expressing any predatory remarks. SBSK interviews different young people with disabilities about their experiences, values, and lives. Their videos are awesome, inspiring, and bring me to near tear, plus the channel has really been increasing in popularity and their videos bring so much awareness to under-researched conditions and to associated foundations/ research. The two individuals that run this channel travel all over the country to interview the families and kids featured in these videos, along with extended family and friends, and they have now made a video addressing how discriminatory it is that their comments are now disabled. I don’t understand how we can disable comments on these eye opening, beautiful videos featuring young people being interviewed about living with rare conditions. Especially because these videos are so moving and educational to the public. I would love to see you and your team potentially address this as an addition/continuation to the conversation concerning the SevenAwesomeKids channel and now associated bans. To me, I don’t get how BR-channel can simply ban comments from all videos featuring a child. Yes, in context it makes sense, but if you watch some of the videos on their channel, I can gaurentee you’ll be moved as well and upset for the creators. It’s so unfair that every single video they make now has banned comments.
