Typical Leftist Response Was Full Of Hypocrisy!
Silicon Valley CEO, Jack Dorsey, rushed to social media to push gun-control after the YouTube Shooting. Dorsey, The CEO of Twitter, quickly posted his stance on gun-control hours after the police standoff with the shooter at YouTube’s Head Quarters had ended.
Maybe the CEO didn’t realize that the shooter was not an NRA member or a Conservative? Maybe he forgot about the $68,000 his company spent in armed security to guard him? Who knows.
What is interesting is that since it’s been discovered the shooter wasn’t a Republican the left has fallen fairly silent.
We can’t keep being reactive to this, thinking and praying it won’t happen again at our schools, jobs, or our community spots. It’s beyond time to evolve our policies. This is a simple and reasonable approach, and it won’t solve all, but it’s a good start: https://t.co/ADYalbaO57 https://t.co/nbXpH9DDyT

“We can’t keep being reactive to this, thinking and praying it won’t happen again at our schools, jobs, or our community spots. It’s beyond time to evolve our policies. This is a simple and reasonable approach, and it won’t solve all, but it’s a good start,” Dorsey wrote, adding a link to a policy platform written by organizers from ‘march for our lives’.
According to The Hill, Dorsey’s message followed the shooting at YouTube’s California headquarters, where police say Nasim Aghdam opened fire in the building’s courtyard, injuring three employees before killing herself.
Recent mass shootings including the February massacre in Parkland, Fla., which killed 17 people at a high school, have reignited the national conversation around gun control and school safety, with survivors of the Florida attack leading a national campaign to end gun violence.
Apparently, Dorsey isn’t alone:
Among the Silicon Valley CEOs showing contrition was new Uber chief Dara Khosrowshahi, who told a panel entitled “In Technology We Trust?” that the ride-hail firm must “go forward as a company that does the right thing.”
It was part of an ongoing campaign by Khosrowshahi, formerly of Expedia, to erase the tainted memory of Uber founder Travis Kalanick, under whom the company became mired in scandals of sexism, tech vandalism, and driver pay.
So would these gentlemen prefer to have unarmed bodyguards in a world where, if their version of gun-control passed, only criminals have guns? Not likely. Are they suggesting that only their bodyguards be armed and not the common person?
Sounds extreme, but so does screaming for gun-control from behind your armed guards.
