Ah the AR-15 shows up once again mowing innocent people down. Where were all of the gun owners? NRA members where were you?

By JOHN SCHRIFFEN, ALEXIS SHAW and DEAN SCHABNER | Good Morning America – 2 hours 42 minutes ago
A Santa Monica College employee and his daughter were among the victims of a shooting rampage that left five people dead
as well as the suspected gunman.
Marcela Franco, 26, was with her father, Carlos, 68, when the gunman -- described by police as "heavily armed" and "ready
for battle" -- came on the campus in Santa Monica, Calif., Friday.
The gunman opened fire on the car the Francos were driving in, spraying it with bullets and killing Carlos Franco.
The vehicle crashed into a wall, criticially injuring Marcela, who died this morning at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center
with her family by her side, according to a statement from the school.
"Our deepest sympathies go to the Franco family," college president Chui L. Tsang said in an email today. "At the
appropriate time, the College will convene a campus-wide memorial."
Marcela Franco had registered to attend classes at Santa Monica College this summer, Tsang said in the email.
Carlos Franco, who was a longtime groundskeeper at the college, "was very well liked and very respected," Santa Monica
Police Chief Albert Vasquez said in a news conference today.
CA has outlawed open carry. It is a "May issue" state, and it is very very difficult to obtain a concealed hand gun permit. CA has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country, 2nd only to NY and NJ. The poor sheeple of CA have been disarmed, except of course for the criminals.
AR15"s are illegal in CA.
I would agree. Roughly $500 for the honor of carrying a gun, have to show a reason, general self defense is not one. 1 out of every 1,000 souls in CA are deemed responsible enough to carry in that fine state.
Oregon is roughly 1 in 15. Thanks to OR being a "Shall Issue" state a young legally armed citizen was able to put an end to a mall shooting massacre a few months back. Too bad CA doesn't have the same laws as OR, tragic the lives lost.
After it was found the shooter was another Islamokook, the gun grabbers/libs forgot to mention his name or his "motive" and the story is now buried next to the legal notices and horoscopes

Again, I am not sure if there is any solution to the mass shootings in the USA.
But I believe when Representative Gifford was shot in Arizona there were a number of armed people there.
California wants to be a gun free Utopia
California school holds toy gun exchange
California schoolchildren lined up Saturday to trade in their guns -- the toy kind, made out of plastic.
In exchange for the colorful toy firearms, Strobridge Elementary School students received books and a chance to win a new bike, Bay News 9 reports.
Strobridge’s principal, Charles Hill, said the Castro Valley school held the exchange because he thinks playing with toy guns increases the chance of children using real ones when they grow up.

An I-Phone turn in would do more to reduce crime. An unsupervised child with an I-Phone is far more dangerous than a well supervised child with a gun.
I miss the good old days of my youth.

Maybe it's because there are guns there? Maybe it's because the police are armed and able to protect themselves?
It isn't quite so fun when there are bullets flying back in your direction, making your goal of mass casualties a little tougher....
