There has been another mass shooting in the US, and this was one of the worst ones of all – up there with Columbine and the other mega-horrors. At last count, there were 15 dead and 19 wounded. One of the dead is one of the shooters, and two of the wounded are a shooter and a cop. All of the rest are the civilians who got shot.
The shooting occurred in San Bernardino, which is part of the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area. This is a part of Southern California called the Inland Empire.
The shooting happened at a County Disability Services building where some sort of a holiday buffet was underway. In other words, it was a party at work. There was some sort of a an altercation or argument at the party, and one of the employees left the gathering. He then returned with two of his friends. They were dressed in all black with black face masks. The three burst into the gathering and opened fire, apparently with semi-automatic weapons, for about one minute. They then fled in a black SUV.
Police etc. rushed to the scene. At some point, the shooters’ vehicle was found, and a chase ensued. The chase ended, and there was a shootout. One of the shooters was killed. His body could be seen next to the SUV in a pool of blood with a gun nearby. The other shooter was in the bullet-riddled SUV, sitting in a passenger seat and badly wounded. A cop was lightly wounded in the shootout. A chase then ensued for the third suspect who seemed to be cornered in a mall the last I heard.
At last count, this country was experiencing an average of one mass shooting a day. That is absolutely insane for a country that is not at war. Are there any other countries on Earth not at war that experience at least one mass shooting a day? When you think about it that’s just stupid. That’s the only word for al these mass shootings. Stupid. Any country not at war that has at least one mass shooting a day is a stupid country.
I think this country is a very stupid country. In fact, we are one of the stupidest countries out there. Mass shootings every single day without a single step (as in gun control like every other sane country) being taken to try to stop or minimize them? Sheer idiocy.
So now we have to put up with worrying about idiots shooting up the place whenever we go just about anywhere. As if we didn’t have enough to worry about already.
