This time it's in the gun control utopia of Santa Barbera, CA. #1/A rated by the Brady Campaign. MAIG member w/ dozens of compatriots across the state. Licensing. Registration. Limits on practically everything. No 'gun show loophole'. Waiting periods. 1 gun a month (they found three), 'Gun Free Zones'. Practically everything anti-gun advocates dream of outside of complete bans.
Goleta, Calif. — A Hollywood director believes his son was the lone gunman who went on a shooting rampage near the University of California, Santa Barbara that killed six people — weeks after the family had called police about disturbing YouTube videos he had posted, his lawyer said Saturday.The family are anti-gun advocates themselves:
Shifman said the family is “staunchly against guns” and supports gun-control laws. “They are extremely, extremely upset that anybody was hurt under these circumstances,” he said.So knowing their Twilight vampire wanna-be son was potentially dangerous and posted videos saying he was going to go and kill people, you know what they're going to do? Push for more gun control:
“My client’s mission in life will be to try to prevent any such tragedies from ever happening again,” he said. “This country, this world, needs to address mental illness and the ramifications from not recognizing these illnesses.”The FAMILY barely 'recognized these illnesses' but I'll lay a box of .22lr (50rnds) that w/i the next few months, they'll be promoting laws that have nothing to do w/ 'mental illness' at all.
Anyone care to take that wager?
'Gun Control' does not work.
Now on a personal rant, if you watch the video, it completely explains why he wasn't gettin' any. He was a whiny, angsty, egotistical @ss that thought he had the 'right' to women falling all over him and who's 'manifesto' reads right out of a badly written, teen angst movie. He likely believed he 'deserved' to be 'popular' because his daddy was an asst. director of a blockbuster movie. Unsurprisingly, he blames everyone else for him being a pissy little turd that few people could stand. 'Popular' is about the opposite of what I was in HS and I had plenty of friends and fun. When I went to college, I didn't join a frat or party and I still had a social life. It can be done. Just wrap your mind around just how annoying/reprehensible he had to be in real life to NOT be able to get some w/ all the money at his disposal.
The saddest thing is that he took a bunch of innocent kids w/ him.
