    Yesterday's school shooting, yet another one with a domestic violence connection.

    Rampaging through a small Northern California town, a gunman took aim on Tuesday at people at an elementary school and several other locations, killing at least four and wounding at least 10 before he was fatally shot by the police, the local sheriff’s office said.

    There were at least seven separate shooting scenes in or near Rancho Tehama Reserve, an unincorporated community of about 1,500 people, Phil Johnston, assistant sheriff of Tehama County, told reporters. The gunman, later identified as Kevin Janson Neal, 44, entered the elementary school but was unable to get into the classrooms because school officials had heard gunshots outside the building and locked the doors, he said.

    Trump has now deleted his totally heartfelt tweet, in which he sent condolences to Texas after this shooting in California.

    I really hate this thread. Nothing good comes out of it. But, it must continue.

    Fucking hell. to do that trick, you're supposed to use a dinky little saturday night special and a big telephone directory, Not a fucking 50 caliber Monstrosity that needs to be moved from place to place in a wheelbarrow, and a 200 page hardback. Its not the fucking cardboard that stops the bullet, it's the hundreds and hundreds of pages. I think it's very clear that they didn't do a trial run

    There is a bit of hearsay from a friend of mine whose family live in Jacksonville. Apparently, they qualified for the football, so the whole town/city/local area, are pissed/drunk as fuck, and when that happens, they shoot guns. So, 8 traffic signals were brought down.

    I love Florida.

    Congratulations America, the GOP, Trump, and the NRA.

    Highlands Ranch is essentially adjacent to Columbine.



    Aurora is about 15 miles north.

    I wouldn't draw any particular conclusions from that. Gun laws in Colorado may be lax, but I don't think they're especially so by US standards. Denver is a big city with a lot of poorly planned sprawl, and that's the kind of place where young men are more likely to be angry, alienated, and unnoticed, but lots of our cities are like that.
