California dreaming/nightmare: Four shootings in eight days
Category: Op/EdBy: vic-eldred • 5 days ago • 26 comments
Shootings galore this past week from the state with the strictest gun laws. The state is led by a governor who lives in an alternate universe. A democratic governor with super majorities in both houses of the state legislature. He addresses these shootings by talking about "gun control" and blaming "Republicans." His state has the highest sales & gas & income tax in the nation, yet he and the bay area elitists like Nancy Pelosi & Dianne Feinsteine keep getting elected. Perhaps because so much of California's middle class have fled? It was they who could have saved the state. What is left, between the coastal elite and the 27% of the state's foreign born population, is their constituency.
Here are the recent shootings:
"A Southern California community is in mourning after a gunman opened fire in a ballroom killing 11 people and injuring nine others during Lunar New Year celebrations over the weekend. Investigators said the gunman – later identified as 72-year-old Huu Can Tran – was previously arrested for illegally owning a firearm, had a rifle at home, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and appeared to be manufacturing gun silencers."

"A gunman opened fire at two agricultural businesses : Mountain Mushroom Farm along State Route 92, then the nearby Concord Farms. Seven people were killed and another person was wounded."

"Last Monday, Jan. 16, in the rural community of Goshen , police said two shooters entered a family’s home, hunting down and killing six people . A seventh person survived the attack."
"Later that same day in Oakland , 40 to 50 people were gathered outside a gas station to record a music video when police say gunfire broke out among several shooters .
An 18-year-old, later identified as Mario Navarro , was killed and five people were wounded. Three other individuals were injured in car crashes as they fled the area."
It is the sad & sick state of California.
