Now, Berg’s 19th Law is still in effect, so we won’t know much just yet; NPR and CNN are trying to tie it to the ownership of guns in general, naturally; never waste a crisis!
Of course, I suspect fake news; the shooter, one Nasim Aghdam, was said to have fired twenty shots – but California banned large magazines, so that couldn’t have happened.
Aghdam has a robust presence on YouTube. In a video posted in January 2017, she says You Tube “discriminated and filtered” her content. In the video Aghdam says her channel used to get lots of views but that after being filtered by the company, it received fewer views. In a Facebook post from February 2017 Aghdam blasted YouTube saying, “There is not equal growth opportunity on You Tube.”
Now, Berg’s 19th Law says we shouldn’t jump to conclusions, especially not based on the media’s current reporting, which will be sensationalist and likely biased.
The NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit has also learned the license plate on a car towed from YouTube’s campus Tuesday is registered to Aghdam. In 2014, she posted a video on YouTube of what appears to be the same car, stating that it was vandalized by “anti-vegans” because the car had a sign saying “meat is murder.”
So she’s a liberal.
You may argue – but care to place a bet?
Oh yeah – the warnings were there.
It must have been the gun.
