Yeah I am super close as well, living in Moorpark and working in Thousand Oaks. What a shitty thing to wake up to.

Damn dude we’re super close! I agree. Couldn’t believe it.

Those frequent shootings really freak me out. And I live in Europe. There is no way I’d ever move to the US with my kids, even if there was the best job offer ever. (Recently discussed that with a friend, that’s why I bring it up.)

Get your shitty gun laws in order, people. This is not normal. It is not freaking normal for people dying because of psychopath getting hold of guns too easily.

This happened not less than 5 miles from my house. Friends I knew were there and people I indirectly knew are now dead. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected.

I'm really sorry to hear about the losses in your social circle. That's devastating.

Hope all other mygnr folks, their friends and family are safe and accounted for.

I'm so sorry you lost friends to yet another senseless shooting.

I honestly don't know what to say anymore. It's just too sad to comprehend losing a friend to violence.

The shooter was an ex-marine and had mental issues.  The US military is dropping the ball when it comes to helping ex military soldiers to adjust to being back home. You send them to fight in wars and then expect them to adjust on their own to regular life. it's not fair to them nor the victims they leave in their wake.

All I do is shake my head in despair when I hear news like this.

Well put, Duff.

 

I agree well said. Just sorry that anyone has to say "sorry" yet again for another shooting.

I wish saying "love" would make the world a better place. All we can do is hope.

My dear friend who lives in Tallahassee just lost a friend in the „Yoga Shooting“. She’s been going to that yoga school for years and years. (She was not present, when the shooting happened fortunately.) Still, all of a sudden all this was very close for me too, because I felt for my friend. 

Also, I feel for you @AxlRoseCDII, I’m so sorry you lost friends. This is just so sad.

Tori sorry for the loss of your friend too.

These days it's just too horrible to think how so many people are killed by violence. You just never know anymore.

All we can do is remember them we've lost with love.

Those poor innocent people, i can't imagine what it must have been like. Some had also been at the Vegas shooting the previous year. RIP.

Our healthcare sucks, our education sucks, suicides up, opiate overdoses at an epidemic level, mass shootings every week, a deep political divide.

We're beyond fucked.

Thanks for all the support guys. It feels so unreal. You hear all the cities with shootings and it’s scary but having one so close to home is nightmare fuel and feels all the more despicable.

I really don't know how to react anymore. I'm very sympathetic for the victims and it's a horrific (that word doesn't even do it justice) thing to hear about every other day but I'm not surprised anymore. Nothing is gonna get done about it either because there's too much corruption and infighting with our government. The people in power know the right thing to do but they won't do it because they're only out for themselves. It's only a matter of time before the media turns this tragedy into a political shitshow.

Well, US citizens simply have to vote for politicians who run on a platform of restricting gun access. You have to put the right politicians in power.

I agree with you but even if we do that nothing is going to get done. The second it gets brought up in congress, there's always a ton of infighting and it eventually gets forgotten or swept under the rug

Yes, because many of you have voted for politicians who are opposed to gun control. My point is: If the American people truly want tighter gun control, they will elect the right politicians and it will get done. It is a cop-out by US citizens to blame the politicians for it not happening. They are only in office because you have elected them.

California has all kind of restrictions when it comes to access to guns. Yet shit happens. The capacity the weapon had was illegal. How come this guy still was able to get it? I guess since he was an ex Marine some restriction don't apply. I don't know.

Inconsequent restrictions then... There are other countries with ex-marines, too, still there aren’t as many shootings.... Why nations cannot learn from other nation’s laws, rules, systems, is something I'll never understand. That’s true for my country, too, on other topics though. This is so frustrating.

I'm just speculating. Maybe there are loopholes in some of the restrictions laws. I really don't know
