    School shooting in Santa Clarita, California

    Didn’t see this under discussion so here it is. A shooter shot classmates on his birthday and killed two and he, himself died today. Good riddance but I really would like to hear or understand his thinking and wonder how much is related to California itself.

    Wonder if the parents will be found to be at fault?

    With 44 school shootings so far this year, the problem goes well beyond California. https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/15/us/20...rnd/index.html

    All I've heard so far is that he was a loner.
    “Historically, freedom is a rare and fragile thing . . . Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell

    So, he got the gun from home? Well, here come the next round of "common sense" gun control laws there. If those fools running that state thought any slower, they'd go backwards in time.

    New laws? What he did was already against the law, how'd that work out. The problem isn't the law or the gun, the problem is the kids. Government can't affect or change the problem, only adult supervision can, and there is none in the lives of these school shooters. So there will be more gun laws and more school shootings and more hand wringing and more coulda woulda shoulda, and NOTHING will change.

    School shootings definitely are a bad thing, but CNN certainly likes to stack things. Reading through all those incidents in the article, I found a few I don’t consider actual school shootings. I bet everyone else can too.

    About that gun...

    "Federal and state investigators are also trying to determine whether the handgun used by the suspect was made from parts purchased separately and then assembled, law enforcement sources told The Times.

    These so-called ghost guns are unserialized weapons manufactured from parts that can be ordered through the mail or machined parts acquired from underground makers."

    "The sources said the gun design appears to be unusual but emphasized that officials don’t know its origins at this time."

    "Investigators found several firearms during a search of the teen’s home, and some were not registered. Villanueva did not specify what types of guns were recovered. The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department is working with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to trace the origins of the .45-caliber handgun used in the shooting."
