Angry White Man, Ex-Military, Goes On Shooting Rampage–Mass Shooting Leaves 12 Dead

November 8, 2018

This is the 307th mass shooting in the U.S. this year. I want to note this is the 312th day of 2018.

Welcome to Thursday in America where the NRA are hoping the breaking news allows for gun manufacturers to make more money.

Twelve people including a police officer were killed by a veteran of the Marines at a crowded bar in Thousand Oaks, California.

 

Several hundred people were inside the venue, which was hosting a “college country night” for students.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean described the incident at the Borderline Bar and Grill as a “tragic, tragic situation.”

The shooter was found dead at the scene from a gunshot wound.  The suspect is Ian Long, 28, who is a veteran of the Marines.

Long has a history of run-ins with the police as recently as April this year, when deputies were called to his house after reports of a disturbance.

Long was “somewhat irate,” and “acting a little irrationally,” according to the sheriff, but he was assessed by a mental health specialist who cleared him and didn’t feel further action could be taken.

Other than that, police have had “several contacts” with Long over the years, described by Dean as “minor events” such as a traffic collision and he was a victim of a battery at a local bar in 2015.
