    I just received a Fox News alert that a gunman has started shooting near a college in Southern California. Can't find details on the web site. Has anyone heard anything?

    Three people were wounded in a shooting near Santa Monica College on Friday, The Los Angeles Times and CNN reported.

    The extent of the injuries was not known, although a suspect was taken into custody, The Times reported. CNN reported that the suspect was "down."

    Officials told The Times that the college was on lockdown.

    "The location is about five kilometres from where President Barack Obama is appearing at a fundraiser"

    That will get you some attention.

    Interesting. Too bad the president wasn't going to one of those reasonable places with strict gun control laws to prevent this type of thing...

    isn't Santa Monica in California, one of the leading states in gun control? what, this shooter used a hunting rifle with his three bullet capacity non removable magazine?

    In before "Bushmaster AR-15, military style, semiautomatic, high capacity clip assault rifle, capable of murdering 150 people per minute while spraying from the hip". In other words, "in before Piers Morgan".

    By "hunting rifle" you mean High Powered Sniper Rifle, right?

    I would think if strict gun control laws were in place is would prevent this sort of rampage.

    Oh, wait a minute. There are strict gun control laws in place in California.

    Why didn't they work?

    Although the facts aren't known yet, wonder what the gun grabbers will say if they reveal that a well armed citizen that brought this to an end?

    Not very likely though. There are strict gun control laws in California.

    BAMCIS - are you telling me that Kalifornia has STRICT gun laws, and if a person would obey these STRICT laws, they wouldn't be committing a crime - thus becoming a criminal? So, only law-abiding citizens are the only ones following these STRICT laws? :rolleyes:

    The scroll on CNN says "A big shotgun" Anderson Cooper said perhaps multiple guns. In other words they don't know squat yet.
