[Ed. – Does that more of those icky ‘assault weapons’ that liberal outfits like YouTube deplore?]
YouTube has pledged to increase security at its San Bruno headquarters – and around the world – in the aftermath of Tuesday’s shooting.
The tech giant, which has been blamed by critics for having lax security at its ‘college campus’ offices, has also encouraged its staff to spend time away from work.
In a statement, the firm explained it will be ‘increasing the security we have at all of our offices worldwide to make them more secure not only in the near-term, but long-term.’
It added: ‘Our employees have been encouraged to take time off of work, or work from home and we are making sure wellness services are readily available.’
It comes after Nasim Aghdam injured three of the company’s employees then killed herself with a handgun after seemingly walking onto its 200,000 sq ft campus.
Her exact movements remain unclear but she was able to gain access to an outdoor courtyard space through a parking garage.
She then opened fire in an area filled with picnic tables where the staff had gathered for a lunchtime party.
