Breaking:Today's mass shooting at California elementary school

Guns don't kill people...they kill school kids.

At least three people were killed and two children wounded when a gunman opened fire at a primary school in northern California, according to local reports.

The gunman was killed by police after he fired at the Rancho Tehama Elementary School around 8 a.m. local time.

“Multiple shots were fired in Rancho Tehama, with multiple victims. I am told the suspected shooter is deceased from law enforcement bullets,” a deputy told the Redding Record Searchlight.

Two children have been hospitalized with gunshot wounds, the outlet reported.

Children from Rancho Tehama Elementary in Corning, about 170 miles north of San Francisco, were taken to a safe location, said the deputy, whose name was not provided.

“It’s a very sad day for us in Tehama County,” said the visibly shaken deputy.

At least 100 law enforcement officers responded to “multiple scenes. We have at least five scenes right now,” the deputy said.

According to reports, a 30-year-old man was taken to a hospital with a gunshot wound to the thigh.

Brian Flint stood outside the reserve and said he received a call in the morning that his roommate was injured and that his truck had been stolen too.

“The crazy thing is that the neighbor has been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large magazines,” Flint said. “We made it aware that this guy is crazy and he’s been threatening us.”

"I am told the suspected shooter is deceased from law enforcement bullets"

"Shooters" kill people, and "law enforcement bullets" kill people. No guns were involved, legally speaking.

Five people have been killed, including the shooter, in a small community about 15 miles southwest of Red Bluff.

Undersheriff Phil Johnston with the Tehama County Sheriff's Office said there were seven shooting scenes and there may be more victims.

Two children were also shot and wounded, he confirmed.

Let me guess. A young to middle aged angry man. Probably white.

They really ought to deport these folks. I don't care if they were born here or it's the only home they've ever known. I mean, it's a worldwide existential struggle of us vs them. Stop being so PC.

Living near the gunman was "hell," Flint said, and the [shooter] was a known felon who often harassed him and his neighbors.

When a guy gets guns illegally, and he shoots up the place, they say "criminals don't obey gun laws". When a guy gets guns legally and shoots up the place, they say "gun laws wouldn't have stopped this guy" or "this is a mental health problem, not a gun problem".

How about "If we can't, as a society, repeatedly can't keep guns (particularly those frequently used in these shootings, like handguns and assault rifles) out of the hands of violent folks, perhaps we should restrict access to them"?

I am really surprised that the millions upon millions of dollars that Republicans have channeled toward mental health has not solved this crisis. What are we to do?

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the next group of innocent Americans horribly murdered with guns.
That should be occurring soon. Just like this one...right on schedule.

Red Bluff and the larger Tehama County are pretty red - lots of farmers, cattle, more and more grapes. You won't gain much traction talking gun control in that area of the state. They'll likely find other explanations to rationalize what happened today. It's really too bad. Can't believe more children are dead.

… Cali has some of the strictest gun control laws in the US, and it was still not enough today.

Sacramento Bee has a pretty good overview here …

Thank you, Thank you. I couldn't have done it without my good
ole semi-automatic assault rifle with the greaat big clips!

The two pistols helped, too.

....annnnnd...it's another angry (to the point of being looney) white guy.

Neal, identified as the gunman who killed four people in a string of shootings Tuesday, shot and killed his wife the previous night and concealed her body under a floor in his home, the assistant sheriff said. The discovery of his wife's body brought the death toll to five.

Neal had been out of bail on an assault with a deadly weapon charge from January.

Unfortunately, this is just the cost of freedom...for adolescent-minded men to act out their repressed rage with big deadly toys

Quote

Law enforcement saw Neal shooting at the pickup and gave chase, ramming his vehicle, forcing it off the road, and then two deputies killed him in a shootout. Johnston said the deputies, who weren't injured, found the gunman dead inside a car. They also found the semiautomatic rifle and two handguns they say he used. A second long gun was also recovered. One of the long guns appeared to be an AR-15, Johnston said.

It wasn't the first time he'd been out and about with this:

Quote

Neal had been arrested in January for stabbing a woman and robbing another woman, both of who later got a restraining order against him. Johnston said the woman Neal stabbed was killed in Tuesday's rampage. Neal was released on $160,000 bail after that arrest.

Prosecutors also alleged Neal fired a gun - possibly an AR-15 Bushmaster rifle - during the attack, according to court documents. The rifle was specifically mentioned as illegal in a criminal complaint filed earlier this year.

Again, if our society can't keep creeps like this from building an arsenal and using it, maybe we ought to think about downsizing the arsenal.

...also, if you want heroes? How about the folks at the school that kept the shooter out, the police that took this guy out without further collateral damage, or these two:

Quote

Sara Gonzalez said she had dropped her daughter off at the school when the gunman attempted to shoot her as their vehicles passed. She said thinks the gunman's windshield stopped the bullet.

She turned her vehicle around.

"I went to my daughter's school and started honking, making people know what was going on," she said.

Gonzalez said the gunman fired at her as she tried to get out and find her daughter.

Jessie Sanders told CNN affiliate KCRA he tried to draw the gunman's attention away from the school.

He said he ran over to the school when he heard the crack of a semi-automatic rifle.

"When I get there, the dude was shooting through the windows," he told the Sacramento TV station. "And I said, 'Hey why don't you shoot this way instead.' "

Sanders said a bullet grazed his right forearm.

Aw, never mind. They didn't have guns themselves, so they can't be true heroes, right?
