It's a shame some of the students weren't carrying. They could have stopped this guy dead in his tracks.
Knowing that, this deranged nutbag may have never attempted it in the first place.

Interesting twist -- a half-Asian, man kills three men with a knife and two women and one man with a gun and the story in the press is...

A racist, misogynistic, White boy shoot six sorority sisters in cold blood -- presumably with an assault rifle with a high-capacity magazine.

Oh well, never let truth get in the way of of a good meme.

Dear, even the armed cops could not get this guy first time around but keep throwing out your nonsense - the NRA must be proud.

Shooting rampages are instigated by police to help justify gun laws.

Never sell guns or ammo to police.

This killer's father sells pictures of female behinds as Art, and thinks there is something wrong with the NRA. Nothing wrong with the abnormal family the killer lived with, just politicians, and the NRA. Oh yes, let's get rid of guns, and copy our lives after the mentally challenged parents of this crazy killer. There is not one example where a normal person took up his gun, and killed someone. How about we take the crazies off the streets, then talk about guns.

Take a look at http://www.anncoulter.com/columns/20 13-01-16.html

Ann Coulter was right: it's not the gun that's being used; it's the publically-acknowledged mental defective that NOBODY wanted to take the gun away from. Or lock up for everyone else's safety.

So: blame the family and friends and cops and everyone associated with him first - THEY'RE the ones that 'saw it coming' and didn't do sh!t about it.

But don't blame the gun - he WANTED to kill people and would have done it any way he could (and he did kill the first three with a knife, didn't he?).

As for that Dick, Blumenthal (he USED to market himself in CT as 'Dick' when running for office until people started referring to him as I have, THEN he went back to 'richard'), by christ whatEVER you do, DO NOT ever stand between him and a reporter with a cameraman: it'd be like 'suicide by draft-evading politician'(or jumping in front of a bus).

Spread the word: do not sell to police until gun laws are eliminated.

These shootings won't stop until guns are banned. After the ban (believe me) the shootings will end.

If California police were allowed to do a better job, none of this would have happened.
.
The criminally insane will always find, make or steal deadly weapons, he stabbed two people to death too in the apartment, remember? You wanna ban knives too?(Rhetorical)
.
The police, who I'm not blaming, need more training and support.
They were warned by EVERYONE and yet, walked away from his door.. They need to learn to profile and target certain individuals for search and stop trying to be so politically correct and afraid of frivolous lawsuits and big mouthed democrats too.. It's the liberal's fault. Then they cry when something like this happens.
,
The liberal democrats have the police's hands tied when it comes to doing their jobs.
Police are the same as me and you.They want to protect us. They are the good guys. It's the system that's messed up and police need our help, not hindrance. They should have stopped this one upon careful evaluation. All they had to do was to walk take a look around his apartment. That's all. One quick look would have found the weapons. Everyone warned the police that something was wrong. So, what the heck happened? I'll tell you what happened. You happened. Liberals happened. Like? You know? Like? You know.

Please grow up and see the world as it really is. Take those Rose Colored glasses off.

Shooting Victim’s Father Blames NRA – NRA Says Proposed Gun Study Unethical

Richard Martinez hit the nail on his head when he placed the blame for his son’s death on “craven, irresponsible politicians and the NRA.”

If all guns were banned tomorrow the crazies that shoot people dead would figure out a different way to kill, but they would still kill. Liberals want guns banned because they want to control all people like Hitler, and Stalin. They could care less about the victims of violence, banning guns just makes it easier to control the peons among us.

Yes. You are right, fellah. Although the male African are only about 7% of the population, they account for nearly 50% of murders by gun. Wealthy ruling class "Liberal" Whites - the so-called Government "educated" and privileged elite - like nothing better than to point the finger of blame at ordinary worker **("middle")** class White people. Could their motive be to conceal their ongoing refusal to set the Africans free?

In the instant case, the shooter was not a White man, yet, "the usual" knee-jerk reaction of the rich "Liberal" and Government "educated" elite was to scapegoat their fellow White underlings. For example, shortly after learning of the Isla Vista shooting, the rich "Liberal" and well known gadfly and agent provocateur, Michael Moore, issued the following defamatory statement:

"...the U.S. is singularly plagued by these violent attacks in part because of a climate of fear and paranoia and weak gun laws that enable 'disturbed white males' to get their hands on deadly weapons..."

Not only was the shooter not a White man, but once the number of gun death committed by the Africans are excluded from the statistics, US gun deaths compare favorably with European nations.

The Africans often warn that, until there is justice, there will never be any peace. Isn't it about time they be listened to? There will never be any justice until those simple folk are returned to whence they were stolen. As a matter of simple justice the Africans should have the RIGHT to take the wealthy White "Liberals" and the Government "educated" elite with them.

A grieving Mother Africa cries out for the return of her stolen children. Let the tears be wiped from her eyes. Return her stolen children into her loving arms.

Very histrionic, boy, but would guess that anyone who is gunned down is because we have a gun culture of gun violence.

Leave the scary spin words like Hitler and Stalin out of the issue - just histrionics.

.... ""With due respect to those who are asking me to comment on last night's tragic mass shooting at UCSB in Isla Vista, CA -- I no longer have anything to say about what is now part of normal American life. Everything I have to say about this, I said it 12 years ago: We are a people easily manipulated by fear which causes us to arm ourselves with a quarter BILLION guns in our homes that are often easily accessible to young people, burglars, the mentally ill and anyone who momentarily snaps. We are a nation founded in violence, grew our borders through violence, and allow men in power to use violence around the world to further our so-called American (corporate) "interests." The gun, not the eagle, is our true national symbol. While other countries have more violent pasts (Germany, Japan), more guns per capita in their homes (Canada [mostly hunting guns]), and the kids in most other countries watch the same violent movies and play the same violent video games that our kids play, no one even comes close to killing as many of its own citizens on a daily basis as we do -- and yet we don't seem to want to ask ourselves this simple question: "Why us? What is it about US?" Nearly all of our mass shootings are by angry or disturbed white males. None of them are committed by the majority gender, women. Hmmm, why is that? Even when 90% of the American public calls for stronger gun laws, Congress refuses -- and then we the people refuse to remove them from office. So the onus is on us, all of us. We won't pass the necessary laws, but more importantly we won't consider why this happens here all the time. When the NRA says, "Guns don't kill people -- people kill people," they've got it half-right. Except I would amend it to this: "Guns don't kill people -- Americans kill people." - Michael Moore.

Mr. Moore left out the word "paranoia" and "gun huggers sucking on the NRA teat" but other than that he says it like it is.

Yes. You are right, fellah. Although the firearms are a more selective means of killing, the numbers killed cannot match the effect of the machete when in the hands of rampaging Africans. The continuing refusal to set the Africans free severely impedes the potential of these stolen persons to "celebrate" their unique "culture" .
