Yet another mass shooting, this one at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, California. The shooter killed 12 people, including a sheriff’s sergeant.
The shooter, who reportedly took his own life, has been identified as 28-year-old former marine Ian David Long, who used a pistol with an illegal extended magazine and smoke bomb in the attack. Though right-wingers last night glommed onto reports from a couple of eyewitnesses who said they thought the shooter looked Middle Eastern, he was white. We don’t know anything about his possible motive yet.
