    Children can get guns. Students can get guns. Drunks can get guns. Drug dealers can get guns. Gang members can get guns. Crazy people can get guns. Anti-Semitic groups can get guns. Neo-Nazis and white supremacists can get guns. Does anyone see a problem here?

    Ian Long, the gunman who went to the Borderline Bar & Grill and opened fire with a Glock .45-caliber handgun, killing 12, and then took his own life, was an ex-Marine who was said to be suffering from PTSD -- as if PTSD is justification for murdering a dozen people.

    Responding to the latest mass murder in the United States of America, Newsom declared, "This has to change! This doesn't happen anywhere else on the planet." (By the way, in the last 25 years, more people have died in mass shootings in California than in any other state.) Newsom criticized the Republicans in Congress and the "morally bankrupt" NRA for opposing any and all gun-control proposals -- and that also has to change.

    Letter from Eileen Martin of North Hollywood in today's Los Angeles Times:

    "Once again, we awoke to news of another shooting, another vigil, another moment of outrage. And yet no one addresses the issue of gun control. Once again, people who knew the gunman were aware that he had problems. Like everyone else, I am disgusted and heartsick over these incidents. And still everyone points to the 2nd Amendment, which was written in the 18th century by old white men who wanted to make sure the states had militias. Do we still need a militia? Troubled people have too many guns and nothing effective is done. In the meantime, I will wait for the next mass shooting and the next vigil."

    Excerpt from a November 9 Los Angeles Times editorial:

    "The Gun Violence Archive reports that gunmen have shot and killed 1,096 people in California, including the Thousand Oaks victims, since the first of the year. In the same period, gunmen nationwide have taken the lives of 114 people in 18 mass killings, defined as incidents in which at least four people are killed excluding the shooter. No place seems safe. In recent years Americans have been gunned down en masse in schools and houses of worship, music venues and in their own homes. The shootings have been motivated by racism, by rage over politics, by mental illness; in some cases, their reasons remain inscrutable. And the President would have us tremble in fear of immigrants."

    The mother of Telemachus Orfanos, a 27-year-old US Navy veteran who was killed in the latest mass shooting in the United States of America, told reporters, "My son was in Las Vegas with one of his friends and he came home. He didn't come home last night. I don't want prayers. I don't want thoughts. I want gun control and I hope to God nobody else sends me more prayers. I want gun control. No. More. Guns."

    Even the gunmen who commit mass shootings know the NRA-puppet Republicans in Congress will do nothing to address the problem of gun violence. CNN reports that the ex-Marine who killed 12 people at Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks made this Facebook post around the time of the massacre:

    "I hope people call me insane. Wouldn't that just be a big ball of irony? Yeah, I'm insane, but the only thing you people do after these shootings is 'hopes and prayers' or 'keep you in my thoughts' every time and wonder why these keep happening..."

    Bar gunman apparently paused during massacre to make Instagram post
