The plague continues to destroy what used to be a wonderful place to live.
You can thank your oh so liberal, limp-wristed DA for turning loose the thugs and other gangbangers who are turning your beautiful state into an unlivable hellhole.
and more gun laws will fix it? They already committed several felonies in this exchange.
START ENFORCING CURRENT LAWS and KEEP THEM IN JAIL!
Damn, I thought all of those tough Cali gun laws were supposed to prevent things like this.
If it was over their ripoff payment practices i totally understand
I’m guessing “youths” were involved.
Why no description of those “involved”? Seems odd they can’t give vague non-identifying information!? Hope it was worth a life sentence for the shooter and a guilty conscious for taking a life.?
The strictest gun laws in the country at work again.
So you’re saying that if we had “looser” gun laws, that would prevent such incidents? Where’s the logic there?
I agree, remove the 2nd amendment completely and we will finally be safe.
wow no way they could find out who did they, not like they scan everyone upon entry. idiots
Right, even with those, we still need to revoke the 2nd amendment 100%. Too many nut jobs out there.
I guess you cant leave it on the court.
How is this news? It would be news if a midnight basketball game didn’t ended with multiple homicides. This is sub-human IQ of news reporting at its finest.
