It's definitely starting to sound like this has a disgruntled-former-employee slant.

People are dying. We need to get our damn priorities in order.
Surely the best proof against the "we need more guns!" argument is that these mass shootings are occurring with alarming regularity in a country with lax gun laws, not in the countries with strict gun control.

"Good people with guns" don't save people from mass shooters. Making it really fucking hard for anybody to get guns saves people from mass shooters.

Would you feel safer working in an environment that allows people to conceal carry? I wouldn't. I read the usual comments such as "if someone had a gun the shooters would not have gotten away" etc. But the problem is a place like Inland Regional Center is a state funded agency. State funded agencies I'm pretty sure don't allow for conceal carry or any weapons on their employees for that matter. Plus it's a social service agency. It's just crazy.

The only alarming thing I saw was an interview with a security guard that works for the security company that IRC contracts to provide security.. and he stated they do not carry guns and they never received active shooter training. So yeah.

And people just ignore when these things still happen despite people being on the scene with concealed carry weapons, anyways.

I don't buy the argument angle.

You're telling me this guy got into an argument at the party, left, and just happened to have some friends hanging out with assault rifles and pre-made pipe bombs ready to roll? Doesn't sound very plausible

Honestly armed citizens probably would not be a good match for 3 armed suspects wearing protective armor and armed with assault rifles.

That's why we need to arm everyone with assault rifles

It's long since been established that in a chaotic situation such as this, people can have difficulty identifying culprits. A "good person with a gun" is by no means likely to take out the right person (or even if they have correctly identified the right person, to be able to disable them under such pressure), and once you have two sides firing, how is it even clear to other people - including other "good people with guns" - which side is the "good" one? It's an idiotic argument. We have people trained and employed to handle unusual, high pressure situations like this for a reason.

I was thinking intercontinental ballistic missiles myself. Let good old mutual assured destruction keep the peace.

My friend at work suggested we just find a way to make every American's skin bulletproof. That ought to fix it.

If this is ISIS related or inspired, I can only hope that the assault rifles were purchased legally so that we can finally send Wayne Lapierre to Guantanamo

I also heard something about one of the shooters being there early to stake it out to "make sure a certain person was there" which sounds a lot more plausible and makes more sense with the "left and came back" theory.

Confirmed: One of the suspects was an employee of Department of Public Health who were using the facility at Inland Regional Center today.

Sounds like the lady gun market has excellent growth potential.

Also, I'm torturing myself by flipping between coverage of this on Fox and MSNBC. Anyone who thinks these channels are the same is an idiot.
