Yet He Still Had a Gun
Wingnuts continually carp about how people are going to take their guns, but if we can’t get guns away from very obviously disturbed individuals then the average wingnut is in no danger of loosing their arsenal.
Witnesses told the Associated Press the hooded gunman was wearing all black with his face partly covered. He first fired on a person working the door, then appeared to open fire at random.
The shooter was identified as 28-year-old Ian Long. Deputies were searching his Thousand Oaks house early Thursday in connection with the shooting. A neighbor told NBC4 he lived at the home with his mother.
The weapon was a Glock 21 .45-caliber equipped with an extended magazine, Dean said, adding that the department has had “several contacts” with him over the years. The most recent was in April when he was irate and acting irrationally, prompting a crisis intervention team’s involvement, Dean said.
