    Twelve killed after gunman opens fire in California bar

    "Twelve killed after gunman opens fire in California bar
    Witnesses say a man fired several shots from a handgun before throwing smoke bombs into a crowded bar in Thousand Oaks."
    https://news.sky.com/story/multiple-...a-bar-11547848

    Police said at least 30 shots had been fired, sending hundreds of panicking people toward the exits with some breaking windows to escape.

    Witnesses described the suspect as being a Middle Eastern man in his early 20s with a beard, wearing all black with a hood and his face partly covered.

But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past."

    unconfirmed but supposedly:
    "he shooter was David Ian Long a 29 year old male from Newbury Park, CA who drove his mothers car to the bar and saying nothing before opening fire. There is no information on the motive. The weapon used was a Glock .45 handgun legally purchased in Ventura County along with a smoke device."

    confirmed
    "What we know about Thousand Oaks shooting suspect, David Ian Long"
    https://abc11.com/thousand-oaks-shoo...-know/4645948/

    The suspect is a white man in his late twenties, according to ABC News. The Associated Press reported that he was 29.
    One neighbor who knew Long said he was a veteran who suffered from PTSD. She said, "I don't know what he was doing with a gun." Others said Long lived at the home with his mother.

    And here we go again......

    https://www.cnn.com/us/live-news/cal...ntl/index.html


    "Some will say California's strong gun laws didn't prevent this shooting, but without stronger federal gun regulations, there's little California can do to keep guns coming in from other states. Without stronger laws to prevent straw purchasing and close the gaping holes in our background check system, a presumptive murderer barely has to lift a finger to buy a gun.
    Some will say we need more guns, not fewer, an absurd claim in a bar full of students with security guards where an armed police sergeant was killed. Republicans argue we shouldn't talk about gun policies after a mass shooting. They're wrong. This is exactly the time we should be talking about enacting gun safety measures. We don't know all the details of this latest shooting, but we do know how to start to reduce the frequency of these murders. What we' re missing is Republican willpower to get it done.
    A renewed ban on military style assault weapons—which have no place in civilian society—is ready for a vote. A bill to ban high-capacity ammunition magazines is ready for a vote. A bill to ban bump stocks, which Republicans agree should be illegal, is ready for a vote. A bill to close the gun show and online loopholes is ready for a vote. Bills to prevent terrorists from buying guns, keep guns away from domestic abusers and allow loved ones to get a gun violence restraining order, each is ready for a vote.
    We could hold these votes next week and have bills on the president's desk by Thanksgiving. Instead, Republicans refuse to take any action at all.
    This failure to act is cowardice of epic proportions. We may not be able to stop all gun violence, but that doesn't mean Republicans should be allowed to bury their heads in the sand and not to — to stop any of it.
    What we're lacking is intestinal fortitude from congressional Republicans and President Trump to say enough is enough. As long as they stand in fear of the NRA and worry more about the power of the gun lobby than the lives of their fellow citizens, we'll see more Thousand Oaks, more bodies lying at the foot of failed Republican leadership."

    Jeebus. Let's ban all the **** which had NOTHING to do with this latest shooting, so that people feel safe.

    Maybe we should ban country/western music, instead... too soon?
