Strange thing to say, "home to more than 1,000 male and female elderly".

Why not just say "home to over a thousand of elderly"?

Sorry, OCD.

Thanks for the coverage.

How do they know it’s an atomatic weapon if the situation is still ongoing?

I'm gonna take a guess here and place bets that it's not an "automatic" weapon. Most likely semi-auto at best. (I'm going to blame it on a rush to get the story typed)

Just want to put this in here before all the screaming and hullaballoo about automatic weapons start.

California has some pretty strict gun laws,
So I'm sure everything will work out fine in the end.

If witnesses spot another person in black BD
and wearing body armor we’ll never hear
another word about him.

You're probably right, witnesses have a tendency to claim "automatic" whenever they hear rapid firing. Either way, it will be interesting to see the details once they come out.

Interesting the media completely ignored the recent stories of the kid who brought a bomb to school and the black kid who shot his parents at college. I guess they didn't help push their take guns away from every citizen narrative.

It's actually impossible to buy weapons in legal states and then bring them to other states.

Same thing with drugs.

It's actually Newton's fourth law of motion.

I don't think a criminal would ever be that brash as to even try it. It would be against the law.

So why have they not yet stormed the building?

Oh it's old peeps and not kids?

Kind of like how it easy it would be to get them here from Mexico? You know like drugs?

Reports indicate hostages inside. If someone takes hostages, you don't just blindly storm in.

The only LEGAL way to buy a gun out of state is to have an FFL dealer in the state you purchase a gun send the weapon to an FFL seller in your home state. The FFL dealer in your home state is supposed to make sure the weapon complies with the local laws.

I guess you mean they can be ILLEGALLY purchased in another state. If that is the case then sure and it is illegal to murder someone as well.

The gun laws worked out pretty well in 2015 with the San Bernandino incident as well. Oh wait...

PS I clicked on one of those news links and my browser got flooded with dialog boxes that kept saying "Password Required", with a red screen in the background, seemed like a virus
