If all it takes to reset the counter is a new shooting, we'll never have a conversation on gun control.

HOORAY FOR FREEDOM!



Congratulations, gun nuts, on yet another successful "2nd Amendment solution!"

But... high capacity magazines and military-looking rifles are ALREADY banned in California. Gun activists told us this couldn't happen!

Statistics prove that this did not happen!

2 people sounds more like a gang shooting, which no amount of gun control (short of every gun in american disappearing in a green puff of smoke) will solve.

Clearly time to ban schools.

Well, at least it is a high school. I couldn't take another elementary school shooting right now.

Aiyah. Following the news is getting to be emotionally damaging.

I think it's pretty obvious that this is another FALSE FLAG concocted by Obama and his cronies.  He no doubt learned it from the Chicoms and the Norks back in Nam.

No deaths? Just injuries? Guns aren't nearly as dangerous as you lib gun takers want people to believe.

Slim comfort to the two folks that have new orifices, but at least it stopped at two. Not like there's a shortage of targets or time for the motivated sociopath.

They got the shooter alive.  This means we can find out his connection to the UN/Illuminati/Gnomes of Zurich.

That is literally the exact reason why pro-gun types say we can't talk about guns after shootings.

Pfft. The clock doesn't get reset until the number of dead from a single incident goes over 10.

The shooter was pursuing happiness and excercising free speech in accord with his religion

If only there were more guns to prevent such a horrible gun tragedy. I feel guns are the only way we can gun safety for our children. Guns are the gun defense that gun the gun gunning. Gun the gun gun gun da gun. Gun gun gungungungun

If that is your logic, unless we can make guns disappear all over the world, gun control will never have an impact

First of all, they're called CLIPS and not MAGAZINES.  Jeez, you Farklibs don't know anything about guns.

It was a lib shooting the gun. If a real Amerigun had been doin' the shootin', he would have broken the Sandy Hook record.

Some of the Teabagger Fb peeps are posting pics basically stating that since we can't even seal our borders, there's no way police can protect schools..

Yay, using false equivalencies to make a non-point..

So your solution is for other states to adopt California's retarded gun laws?

Because state borders are the exact same as international borders, which is why they check my papers every time I drive to Oregon.

I agree with you, but think about what that means for the United States. We've become so resigned to the fact that children are going to get gunned down in school, that we're just happy when it's older children and not younger ones. Our goalposts have moved WAY the fark too far in a certain direction.

On CNN they just said this happened outside of the science building. WHY DIDN'T THEY STOP THE SHOOTINGS WITH SCIENCE??

Maybe that's why he got two instead of 28.

Lots of gang activity in that area
Here's to hoping it was shiatheads shooting fellow shiatheads

Only two people shot? Better up your game or we'll forget about you by the end of the week.

That's worked great for other laws based on international borders, nothing has ever come across the border without strict examination of papers!

I'm not sure they have a lot of gang activity in Taft, California, a podunk (~ 10,000 population) town set amid the oil fields of Kern County, about a half-hour from Bakersfield.

It's clearly the victim's fault they were shot since they weren't packing heat.
