Another Mass Shooting

This one in San Bernadino California where two, and perhaps three, people armed with rifles opened fire at a holiday party for county health workers.

At least 14 people were killed and 17 wounded.

Police have reportedly killed two suspects and arrested a third person. One police officer was wounded in the shootout.

Those are the basics as they are understood at this moment.

Other reports claim that there was an argument at a party and one person left. If that person was one of the gunman is not known. Police identified one of the suspects as one Syed Farook. A Syed Farook apparently worked at the center where the shooting took place but no one has verified they're the same person.

I'd say it's pretty likely. How many Syed Farooks you think there are in San Bernadino?

I'm not going to go into the whole gun control thing. I can't wait to hear the wing nuts say more guns are the solution because if people at the center had been armed then yada, yada, yada.

This whole cowboy mentality doesn't work. If everyone pulls out a gun how do you tell the so-called "good guys" from the "bad guys?"

Then again no one ever accused conservatives of being capable of performing even the most rudimentary logical analysis when it comes to one of their wing nut issues.

And please don't tell me "guns don't kill people kill." Because without the guns, people wouldn't be able to kill this way. Yes you can kill with other stuff but only guns are designed for the sole purpose of killing.

I haven't heard anything about motive. One would think it would have to have been a really big argument to lead to this sort of nonsense but I suppose it's possible. I'm sure we'll learn more in the coming days.
