    Why does every Tom Dick n Harry want to get their photo op at the podium, it is so silly to have a long line of people stand there and bullshit for an hour. What is wrong with America, every action now good or bad has to be tied to some political action or group.

    School shootings are always horrible, whatever one's stance is on guns and the 2nd amendment.

    Prayers for everyone involved.

    And the typical progressive response is for even more restrictive gun control even is said laws wouldn't have made a difference. And right on cue, leftists are calling for just that even before the bodies have gone cold.
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.

    The kid is 16. I believe in most states, the could not purchase a firearm,

    Where and/or how did he obtain it?

    Did he buy it on the street, steal it, or remove it from a family members/or friend's of his house ?

    Santa Clarita school shooter dies from self-inflicted wound

    Sadly, there has been another tragic school shooting, this time at the Los Angeles area’s Saugus High School.

    The alleged teen shooter, who killed two students and then turned the gun on himself, has died from his self-inflicted bullet wound to the head.

    Nathaniel Berhow, 16, was pronounced dead at about 3:30 p.m. on Friday, a day and a half after the shooting on the grounds of the Santa Clarita high school, CBS Los Angeles reported, citing the Los Angeles Sheriff’s office.

    Berhow, an experienced gunman, had first killed two classmates — 14-year-old Dominic Blackwell and 15-year-old Gracie Anne Muehlberger — and injured three others before firing his last bullet into his head and dropping his empty gun, police said.

    Investigators are still searching for a motive for the attack.

    Detectives have conducted 40 interviews and still have six to go in their efforts to piece together what led up to the shooting in Santa Clarita. It is not clear how the shooter got the weapon, a .45-caliber handgun. However, authorities say that at this point, they do not think the shooter targeted specific students.

    Authorities seized several unregistered firearms from the home of the teenager, and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is working with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to trace the origins of the handgun used in the shooting, Sheriff Alex Villanueva said.

    “We are chasing all the leads available,” Villanueva said. “At this stage, we don’t know the motive.”
    How do they know the kid was "an experienced gunman" ?

    I might opine that a 16-year-old probably would not have money to purchase several "unregistered firearms" Perhaps they were his fathers. ?

    His father passed away approximately one year ago.

    It seems as though the argument for all the “commonsense“ gun laws still won’t be able to protect evil acts from being committed.

    In the case of the Santa Clarita, California shooting;

    The perpetrator was 16-years-old. It was straight up illegal for him to own or possess a firearm and not a single universal background check would have stopped it.

    He didn’t use an AR-15 or any type of the so-called “assault weapons” that activists want to flat-out ban in the United States. He used a .45 caliber handgun.

    He didn’t use a high-capacity magazine. Police say that the teen unloaded five rounds during the shooting, and confirmed that the gun was empty when it was recovered.

    Finally, no prior mental health concerns had been made about the suspect. So even if he was marked as a ‘red flag’, the gun that he shouldn’t have been in possession in in the first place wouldn’t have been taken away.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    . If you ain't havin' fun, it's your own damn fault

    California HS shooter used untraceable 'ghost gun,' sheriff says


    The 16-year-old who shot five classmates last week at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, Calif., before turning the weapon on himself, used an unregistered, untraceable "ghost gun" assembled by hand from various parts, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva.

    It was unclear who assembled the weapon and authorities did not rule out Nathaniel Berthow, the gunman, as the architect of the.45 caliber handgun.

    The Nov. 14 shooting claimed two lives and three were injured.

    The teen’s deceased father owned an arsenal of weapons, many unregistered, which were seized by law enforcement. Mark Berhow, his father who enjoyed big-game hunting, died in 2017 of a heart attack in 2017.

    Ghost guns are a growing problem for law enforcement. The parts are relatively easy to obtain and the guns do not take much expertise to build. So even though California has some of the strictest gun laws in the country, they are only based on traditional firearms made by manufacturers where ownership can easily be traced.

    In Southern California, one-third of all firearms seized are ghost guns.
    Further down:

    One police officer said it was “ridiculously easy” to build a ghost gun after his agency experimented in building their own Glock-replica handgun from parts they ordered online in an experiment.

    “It was ridiculously easy to do it,” Thomas Gronenan, detective sergeant with the Suffolk County Police Department in New York, said.“It’s scary because anybody — convicted felons, people with psychological issues — can order it online.”


    I'm shocked !
