Tim Cook’s Support for Apple’s ‘Neighbors’

Mr. Cook said he was “deeply saddened” by the shooting, which took place Sunday at the Gilroy Garlic Festival. He described those caught up in the incident as Apple’s “neigbors”. The shooting happened less than an hour away from Apple’s campus. The San Francisco Chronicle reported that three people were killed and 15 injured during the shooting, some critically.

Mr. Cook has previously been an advocate for gun control. In May last year he praised “the students of Parkland, Florida, who refused to be silent about the epidemic of gun violence have rallied millions to their cause.”  Weeks earlier he explained why NRA-TV was avaialble on Apple TV.

Gilroy is a bit under 40 miles south of Cupertino (for comparison, San Francisco is a bit over 40 miles north of Cupertino) so it’s not exactly “near” Apple HQ.
