The liberal media is having one heck of a difficult week, as they attempt to spin the story of a hard-left vegan Peta activist opening fire in a California building belonging to ultraliberal YouTube.
This story is certainly a strange one, thanks to the perpetrator; Nasim Aghdam.
Aghdam was a YouTuber user and Peta activist whose channel on the video sharing platform was possibly demonetized over her posting of violent animal butchering images. This sent the “vegan bodybuilder” into a rage, with Nasim spending several hours at local gun ranges in order to increase her efficiency when the zero-hour arrived.
Due to Aghdam’s hard left lean, and the fact that this crime occurred in California where gun restrictions are tighter than the alt-left’s skinny jeans, the media has no idea how to cover the story. There is no way for them to spin this into a gun control issue, and so they’ve simply taken to ignoring the situation.
One bystander on the scene, however, had a fairly succinct take on the shooting – one that the left isn’t going to want to hear.
The witness was at the Carl’s Jr. across the street from YouTube when an injured woman ran to the business for help. He recounted hearing the shots, “It didn’t stop. It was no mercy. Whoever shot that time, oh, man. It was massive.”
When asked what was going through his mind, he said, “I know I had to be smart, I had to be fast.”
Then came the moment of truth:
IJR Red reports that a witness who helped a woman fleeing YouTube headquarters told reporters, “I didn’t have a gun on me, but I wish I did.”
It doesn’t get much simpler than that, folks.
The reason that this concerned and able citizen wasn’t able to assist during this tragedy has to do with California’s ultra-strict gun laws.
In fact, a gun owner in California isn’t allowed to carry a firearm in public unless a court has heard their request, and that person has provided a “credible” reason why they need such a weapon. That “credible” part is open to interpretation, of course, and knowing California’s legal system, we’re not sure what would ever pass the test.
