California Gunman, Ian David Long, Actually Took Time Out Between Rounds To Post Online

Well, you complained when they posted pictures of their food, they had to up their game!

An excerpt from CNBC: Authorities trying to make sense of why a gunman killed 12 people at a Southern California bar are not publicly discussing what they've learned, but at least one Instagram post he made after beginning the massacre has emerged as an early focus.

Social media platforms have scrubbed that and any other posts following Wednesday night's massacre. But one law enforcement official said Ian David Long, a 28-year-old former Marine, posted about his mental state and whether people would believe he was sane.

Authorities also were investigating whether he believed his former girlfriend would be at the Borderline Bar and Grill, said the official, who was briefed on the investigation but not authorized to discuss it publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

A second law enforcement official, Ventura County Sheriff's Capt. Garo Kuredjian, said that — based on time stamps — the gunman apparently stopped shooting inside the bar and posted to Instagram. Kuredjian said he didn't know the content of any posts. Instagram and Facebook typically refuse to discuss individual accounts and did not respond to a request for comment.

Authorities described an attack of military efficiency. None of those injured was hurt by gunfire. When the gunman shot his .45-caliber pistol, he killed. As scores of police officers closed in, Long apparently shot and killed himself.

Several people who knew Long in the suburb of Thousand Oaks where the gunman went to high school and eventually moved back in with his mother described him in disturbing terms.

Gun Free Zones make everyone equally safe!

Common sense Instagram restrictions, 72 hour waiting periods for posting... & etc.

gohikineko Or you know HE could have been preventing from owning a weapon in the first place.  I know a pipe dream but it's not as ludicrous as your Gun Free Zone argument.

normalfreak2 You mean by enforcing existing laws? What are you, part of some vast right-wing conspiracy or something? Enforcing existing laws is racist! Passing more laws is justice! As long as they don't get enforced of course...
You calling the kettle black? that's a laugh-riot right there.

dm2754 Confiscation of course, there's no other way to do it. Lawful citizens have nothing to fear from confiscation, the police are only 15 minutes away if something happens! The same police that run around deliberately murdering black people without fear of recrimination, but we have to put our trust in them completely! 
And of course criminals won't have their guns confiscated, that would be racist!
