ORINDA, CA — It was less than 12 hours after a deadly shooting at a Halloween party held in a short term rental before California’s anti-gun politicians began to blame the gun.
Five people were killed and more injured at what is being called a ‘rental mansion’ where more than 100 people were partying for Halloween.
Police report that the house, located at 114 Lucille Way, held more than 100 people, many who didn’t know each other.
The first shorts rang out at 10:50 pm, and police were called soon thereafter. When authorities arrived to the party scene, they found multiple people shot.
Five of those were either deceased or died later at a hospital.
The victims were later identified as Tiyon Farley, 22, of Antioch; Omar Taylor, 24, of Pittsburg; Ramon Hill Jr., 23, of San Francisco/Oakland; Javin County, 29, of Sausalito/Richmond; and Oshiana Tompkins, 19, of Vallejo/Hercules.
Never Let a Tragedy Go to Waste
Just a few hours after the shooting, Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom posted on Twitter calling for “commonsense gun reforms.”
Notably, Newsom didn’t mention that just three weeks ago, he had signed 15 new gun control bills into law.
He didn’t mention which of those bills would have stopped this killing.
He didn’t mention that there were already up to a half a dozen laws broken by the shooter, including city ordinances that limit the number of people who could be in attendance at a short-term rental party.
Other California officials piled on, all calling for more gun control, none identifying which proposed bill would have made a difference, and none acknowledging that multiple gun laws were already broken.
Kamala Harris posted about the incident and said:
“I’m tired of communities in California and across the country being shattered by gun violence. We need leaders to have the courage to act. Enough.”
Nothing like a tragedy to bring out the political leeches.
The general public doesn’t know what gun was used.
They don’t know how many rounds were purchased. Did the shooter pass a background check ?
Or did he even own the weapon legally. We don’t know if this was drug or gang violence that spilled into a suburban neighborhood thanks to a short-term rental.
Maybe the shooter was already a convicted felon and therefore ineligible to own a gun in the first place? We don’t know if he transported them legally. We do know that he was willing to break the law against murder, of course.
There’s a lot we don’t know.
One thing we know is that California politicians and political hopefuls will be totally sold-out to their leftist ideology before the facts are even known.
