Shots Fired at Fashion Island

Yesterday afternoon, a man began shooting a gun at Fashion Island in Newport Beach.

Initial reports say more than 50 shots were fired.

(For those of you who are unfamiliar with Orange County, Fashion Island is an upscale mall.  I was there Thursday morning, myself.)

No one was hurt.

The shooter is in custody.

Of course, on Friday there was the incomprehensible slaughter in Newtown, CT.

The week prior, there was the shooting in Clackamas, Oregon.

Our society is broken.

So … so … broken.

    It’s not very noble of me, but I wish they’d shoot only themselves, the way it was in the old days.

    You really make it seem so easy together with your presentation however I to find this matter to be actually one thing which I feel I might never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely large for me. I’m having a look forward on your subsequent publish, I’ll attempt to get the grasp of it!

    Ya know…I don’t want to get into the politics of this online (People are more willing to slam others and call names online, I think) but I wish we’d consider Australia’s gun laws: http://blog.syracuse.com/opinion/2012/12/after_a_1996_mass_shooting_aus.html

    But, I get the feeling that they are more pragmatic in their politics and perhaps less dogmatic than our citizens and politicians.

    And mental healthcare should be as accessible as physical healthcare. It isn’t by a long stretch. Bummer, huh?
