A shooting spree in Tustin, Ca. left 4 people dead, including the shooter, and 2 wounded on Tuesday, according to the AP:

The shootings began at 4:45 a.m. when deputies responding to a call found a female shot multiple times in a house in Ladera Ranch, said Orange County sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino. The city is in the southern part of the suburban county about 30 miles south of Los Angeles.

From 5:30 a.m. to 5:55 a.m., Tustin police received police reports of shootings in several locations, Tustin police Supervisor Dave Kanoti.

The first call that came in was at Red Hill Avenue and Interstate 5. Police arrived and determined a carjacking had occurred and that victim was uninjured. An innocent bystander who was shot by gunfire was taken to a hospital, Garaven said. The next call was at State Route 55 and McFadden Avenue. Another carjacking occurred and that victim died, Garaven said.

The last call was about a man with a gun, he said, at Edinger Avenue east of the 55. An officer arrived and found two more victims one dead and the other injured.

1. Reminds me of the Prince Edward barn I saw about 40 years ago while touring the province

There was a pretty barn on this very flat province with a lot of farms. One barn we came across had big white script lettering on its barn roof "JUST ANOTHER BARN"

I took a picture and remarked how true.


well this shooting....is JUST ANOTHER SHOOTING..


America, one nation under guns....

2. Fuck guns and anybody who defends them

Personally I find it disgusting that gun-lovers continue to cling to their precious assault weapons, high-capacity magazines, etc. It seems that every week or so we read about some new mass-shooting.

But yet Mr. NRA Gun-Lover insists that he needs to have his AR-15 with 30-round magazine in order to repel some mythical invasion.

9. Good point - crack down on guns and owners needs to target more than AR15 style weapons

and 30+ round mags. Needs to include all semi-autos, including handguns. Needs to limit gun acquisitions, provide for psychological screens, limit public toting, etc.

5. How many gun deaths does this make for California in February?

 

I wonder if anyone is asking questions like that.

6. America doesn't have more wackos then other countries.

Wackos are spread evenly across the world.

What we have are more wackos with access to deadly weapons.
