Yo! David Hogg! The YouTube Shooter was a far left liberal, vegan animal activist, living in the state with the liberals dream of gun control laws, who walked into a severe gun free zone and shot 3 people.
She was definitely not a conservative NRA member living in an open carry state.
YouTube censored and demonetized her graphic videos that included bloody images of dead animals. This had her upset.
Police have identified 39-year-old Nasim Najafi Aghdam, of San Diego, as the woman who allegedly opened fire with a used a 9 mm handgun Tuesday at YouTube’s headquarters in San Bruno, California. She died from a self-inflicted gun shot wound at the scene.

Three victims included a 36-year-old man in critical condition, a 32-year-old woman in serious condition and a 27-year-old woman in fair condition. A fourth victim reportedly suffered a sprained ankle fleeing the gunshots.
Authorities are also still claiming that one victim was Aghdam’s boyfriend.
Aghdam’s father said that before the shooting he he had informed police that his daughter had gone missing and she might be at YouTube because she “hated” the company. He told the media that she was a vegan activist and was angered by the company’s handling of her online videos.
He said that she had grown angry after YouTube reduced her ability to earn ad revenues from her videos. Many of her videos reportedly showed her complaining about what she believed was censorship on YouTube, and she alleged on her website that the video platform was targeting her unfairly.
Text from her website reads:
BE AWARE! Dictatorship exists in all countries but with different tactics! They only care for personal short term profits & do anything to reach their goals even by fooling simple-minded people, hiding the truth, manipulating science & everything, putting public mental & physical health at risk, abusing non-human animals, polluting environment, destroying family values, promoting materialism & sexual degeneration in the name of freedom,….. & turning people into programmed robots! “Make the lie big, Make it simple, Keep saying it, And eventually they will believe it” Adolf Hitler… There is no free speech in real world & you will be suppressed for telling the truth that is not supported by the system. Videos of targeted users are filtered & merely relegated, so that people can hardly see their videos! There is no equal growth opportunity on YOUTUBE or any other video sharing site, your channel will grow if they want to!!!!!
Aghdam was a prolific YouTuber.
She published numerous videos in English, Farsi (her family is Iranian-American), and Turkish. Some of the videos showed Aghdam making vegan recipes, while others showed graphic images of animal abuse. One is titled “Animals are skinned alive on Chinese fur farms”. Yet others showed her doing simple workout routines. Aghdam’s pages on Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram are no longer accessible, but her website remains up and running.
Not once did she voice support for the NRA.
Ignoring the fact that California’s already incredibly stringent gun control, did not work.
Ignoring the fact that the shooting took place in a severe gun free zone. High-profile technology executives have called for increased gun control in the wake of the shooting.
Twitter Chief Executive Jack Dorsey tweeted a link to the March For Our Lives page, a movement that is supporting stricter gun control.
Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi also tweeted following the incident, sending his support to YouTube and Google using the hashtag #EndGunViolence.

In March, YouTube introduced rules that banned videos promoting the sale of firearms and accessories. and as well, tutorials on how to assemble guns.
California is the state known for the liberals dream of gun control.
Every day now, I keep expecting Jerry Brown to just declare all of California and gun free zone. Yet the violent crime statistics in the state are off the chart.
California’s violent crime rate increased by 3.7% in 2016 to 444 per 100,000 residents. There have been other recent upticks in 2012 and 2015. Yet each year, gun control from Sacramento gets more and more stringent.
But it is not working. In fact, truth be known, it is making things worse. These mass shootings are happening in gun free zones.
And they are definitely not being done by law abiding, gun toting NRA members.
