California man planned mass shooting, police say

Source: CNN

(CNN)Long Beach, California, police arrested a man they say was planning a mass shooting, the police chief said.

Rodolfo Montoya, 37, allegedly was planning to shoot employees and guests at the Marriott hotel where he worked as a cook, Chief Robert Luna said at a press conference Wednesday.

Police arrested Montoya at his Huntington Beach home after getting a tip from a fellow employee about Montoya's plans, Luna said.

"Suspect Montoya had clear plans, intent, and the means to carry out an act of violence that may have resulted in a mass-casualty incident," Luna said.

1. Take them Seriously

At last some proactive attempt to identify right-wing nutjobs with violent intent.

11. $omebody made money selling it they don't care they got $$ . Profit is the reason they don't want

it to end. Rather they would like to have everyone buy one in fear to defend against creeps like these is their perfect profit plan imo

Gun nuts galore have a plethora of options for whatever freak item turns them on this month

4. Crap. He could live on my street.

Roommate-husband works a night or two in Long Beach. We live in Huntington Beach.

Feeling a bit like I'm in the middle of maggot country. Perhaps it's time to move back down to South county. I seldom saw Republican bumper stickers down there. Not even many homes flying the American flag.

ETA: The county is blue now. And we did get rid of our House Rep. Rohrabacher. Still... we've got some crazy here.

9. And this is with some gun control in the state.

"San Diego Is Showing California How to Use its Red Flag Law"
"The city has used the gun-control law aggressively — and says it has prevented suicides and mass shootings."

“We can never prove that we saved lives, but we believe we have,” said Elliott.

"A study published this week in the Annals of Internal Medicine echoed that sentiment and put some figures on California’s GVRO law. The study, which looked at orders issued between 2016 and 2018 from across the state, found 21 cases that disarmed potential mass shooters."
