The Ultimate Bad Hair Day in California

Multiple weapons?  fromWHERE?  Legal or illegal? Body armor?
Planning went into this mass shooting, definitely; this doesn't appear to be a sudden impulse.

From and the AP:

Six people were shot to death and three others wounded at a hair salon on Wednesday in a normally sedate Southern California beach community, Orange County authorities said. One suspect was in custody.
The shooting occurred at Salon Meritage around 1:30 p.m. in the 500 block of the Pacific Coast Highway, Capt. Mark Stone of the Orange County Fire Authority told NBC LA.
Three victims were rushed to Long Beach Memorial Hospital, reportedly in critical condition.
Victims were believed to be both employees and customers of the salon, KTLA News reported.
Police arrested a man in a white truck during a traffic stop a half-mile from the shooting scene, and police Sgt. Steve Bowles said multiple weapons were seized. He may have been wearing body armor, according to police.
"The officers identified the (suspect's) vehicle as it was leaving the location," Bowles told KCAL9 TV in Los Angeles. "They followed it and made a traffic stop and took the driver into custody."
Bowles described the suspect as cooperative.
The motive was not immediately known.
"It just caught everyone off guard and people started running outside to see what was happening," Zach Benson told NBC LA. "It was a very bizarre scene."
The quiet beachfront city of approximately 25,000 residents identifies itself as the Gateway to Southern California's Orange County and is located about 30 miles southeast of Los Angeles.
It is home to Leisure World, a gated senior citizen community of 9,000 people, as well as the Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station military complex. Two-thirds of the city's 13.23 square miles are occupied by the Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge.

  1. 8 now dead. Suspect is apparently an ex-hubby of a salon employee. Custody battle.

    I think what Mikeb302000 needs to do, instead of referring to gunz that start out legal and then insert themselves into the hands of criminals, is just say, "Crimes, committed with legally manufactured and then, negligentally or illegally transferred gunz."

  3. Ah, democommie, this part of your comment gave me a chuckle this morning:"gunz that start out legal and then insert themselves into the hands of criminals".

    Because the gun crazies would like us to believe those guns just act like inanimate objects in the Disney cartoon 'the sorcer's apprentice', flying around the room by themselves, and pushing into the hands of the criminals with no one along the way lifting a finger for that to happen.

    Good one!

  4. I like the sorcerer's apprentice imagery, Dog Gone. That's a perfect analogy for how the gunloons seem to see crime guns originating.

  5. Heу there! This post couldn't be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my previous room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this article to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!
