In a Facebook update attributed to Long by CNN, which said it was posted around the time of the shootings, he writes: "I hope people call me insane (laughing emojis).. 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..."
Long had a run-in with law enforcement earlier this year. Deputies were called to his home in April after neighbors reported yelling and crashing sounds. Long was cleared by a mental health specialist who felt long did not need to be taken in for evaluation.
His motive like the Las Vegas shooter was gun control. He was another lunatic medicated to hell and gone with a history of mental issues and police interactions. The laws already on the books, IE Background checks should have already stopped him from purchasing a firearm legally. Californias gun control did not help matters one bit, in fact if any of the bars security personnel had access to a firearm, maybe these things would stop before they start. In fact I think a video uploaded to youtube or liveleak of one of these mental incels kicking his life in a pool of his blood after being shot by a legally armed citizen would probably put a damper on these nutcakes deciding to do this for a long while.
If any of those other 12 guys had guns, they could have stopped him.
Guns for everyone! Are you mentally ill and the government is preventing you from having a gun? They can't! It's your god givcen right to own a gun even if you're the type who'd kill innocent people with it.
The states should post some more money in health care, and give veterans a lot better treatment, and do like remove guns like Australia, if they want to prevent these things to happen. Sadly none of these things are going to happen.
Yesh, IF. No matter if it takes decades or even centuries, the dream of a gun free america might someday be a reality. And same for all the various wars in fact. Nothing lasts forever. We must NOT lose hope.
This is what happens when you neglect your veterans. The very people who fought for our country are being spit on and mistreated when all they need is help. It makes me sick when I see this kind of shit.
Yeah, that's what I figure... Pretty toxic don't you think? Considering that dA is a global community, of course he should REALIZE that not everyone would be sympathetic towards his gun 'rights' in first place. And yet somehow, guns would pretty much justify his jerkis towards people like me...
From many interactions with the guy, I would really wanna know why he's the sort of person he is today. Did something happen in the past to make him trust his life on guns? Some sort of a trauma perhaps?
Gun control is nothing but a measure to give government more power, that's it. The gun owners of America have given compromise time and time again for the last 84 years.
And why California and other gun control States are not being prosecuted by the DOJ is a mystery. The Supreme Court has already ruled against State and local gun laws of certain types, and California, among others, is ignoring it.
Try telling that to the other governments where that's obviously not the case. Seriously, do you REALLY have to consider other countries LESS free than USA like that? Get real. And what if a rogue government gain power in USA anyway? Doubtful it would have any effect on EU at least but who knows...
