YouTube headquarters in Silicon Valley came under attack from an active female shooter on Tuesday.
The shooter was identified as Nasim Najafi Aghdam who was allegedly angry with the major internet company and shot three people before killing herself.
It didn’t take long for one delusional anti-Trump comedian to politicize the tragedy and blame the NRA for the shooter’s actions.
Upon investigating the shooter’s website, police found a post where Aghdam had expressed her anger with YouTube for restricting her videos.
“There is no equal growth opportunity on YOUTUBE or any other video sharing site, your channel will grow if they want to!!!!!” one post read. “Youtube filtered my channels to keep them from getting views!”
However, before all the facts had come in, comedian Michael Ian Black chimed in on twitter and blasted the NRA.
“As news of the shooting at YouTube’s San Bruno, California, headquarters was still coming in, actor-comedian Michael Ian Black tweeted of his plans to “politicize the fuck out of” the shooting and blame it on the “NRA and its blood-soaked lackeys.”
“Another shooting. I’m going to politicize the f–k out of it, and so should you,” Black tweeted. “The NRA is a terrorist organization.”
When Twitter users urged Black to wait for the facts before politicizing the incident, the Hot American Summer star responded by admitting he does not know who the shooter was but is sure they got their gun via the “NRA and its blood-soaked lackeys.”
“No, I don’t know who the shooter is. It doesn’t matter if they are an NRA member Yes, I know how they got the gun: the NRA and its blood-soaked lackeys made it possible for that person to get it,” Black wrote.
Black sent another tweet calling the NRA a “terrorist organization.”
Black complained about the “easy access to firearms,” although California the most stringent gun controls in American.
For example, one has to acquire a gun safety certificate from the state before being allowed to purchase a gun to keep in their home.
Once they have the certificate they must go to a gun store, choose a gun, pass a background check, and then wait 10 days before being allowed to take it home. They must also register the gun with the state of California.
In order to carry the gun for self-defense they have to convince their county sheriff they have “good cause” to do so, which is part of the process of going through another background check to acquire a concealed carry permit.
California also has an “assault weapons” ban and ammunition controls.”
The NRA criticized Black on their exclusive TV channel in response, but he only doubled down.
Thanks for the shout-out, guys. A quick reminder that you are a terrorist organization. https://t.co/AqPc3FzPr2

It’s perplexing to understand Black’s logic in blaming the NRA, especially considering Aghdam had purchased the gun legally and had it properly registered.
But the anti-gun movement needs their emotional accusations to fit with their “guns are evil” narrative, so it doesn’t have to make sense.
