I wake up, brew my coffee, and hope for a good day. First news: Something like 12 dead in a mass shooting at a cowboy-themed bar somewhere down near LA. We're playing rock music at a cowboy-themed bar this Friday and Saturday night. I never really think about getting shot. As one news commentator put it, news of mass shootings used to lead to moments we'd always remember--where we were when we heard about it, and so on. Now, they're so common we can't even remember which was which. Off to work at my friend's preschool, tra la la. Have a sunshiny day!

@TheHorse Mental problems should be taken more seriously. I have read that this man was a veteran. Put yourself in his shoes, he fought for his country and what did he get in exchange? No money, no glory, no advantages, not even a bit of gratitude. There is enough to become a "ticking time-bomb".

Back 10 years ago I used to go out dancing and to live music, in Birmingham where there are many college kids then that area began to have drive by shooting, down town!,This is a nicer area also, but it don`t matter someone wants to kill, they kill.

Omg. I hadn't read any news today, so I just looked it up. It's in Thousand Oaks . . . not exactly local to us, but Hubby passes through on the freeway everyday to work. Still it's close enough. What is wrong that all there are so many crazy shootings like this? Like you, I don't think of getting shot no matter what public place I'm in - but it happens .

It is a sad situation indeed, both from the perspective of how numb we as a nation have become to such things and to how we as a nation have failed our veterans. This man obviously needed help he never received. He clearly should never have been allowed access to a weapon in his condition.
