    4 dead, including gunman, in southern California shooting spree

    How crazy are the people in California? You could not pay me to live in that screwed up state.

    Authorities say a shooting spree through Orange County, Calif., has left four people dead, including the shooter, and two others injured before the man stopped and shot himself to death in a stolen car, police said.
    The shootings began early Tuesday morning when deputies responded to a call in Ladera Ranch, a sleepy inland town about 55 miles southeast of Los Angeles. They found a woman shot multiple times.

    What are the odds he was a responsible gun owner right till the moment he suddenly went crazy and used the gun for what it's made for?

    The implication being that California is crazy because shooting sprees are exclusive to that state?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Is there more crazy people per capita in CA than other states?

    The odds are slim, when you consider he was driving a stolen car.

    This is where common sense burst upon the scene.

    That second line's the funny one. Who told it you?

    He wasn't in the car when he went crazy and shot the first victim multiple times.

    The national media is just reporting gun violence more because it's the current sensation. It gets them ratings which feeds the debate which feeds the ratings.

    The days of real investigative journalism are gone. Now it's whatever makes the audience salivate the most.
