No real details yet, but reports that the suspect has been 'neutralized' are being reported by multiple sources

Might as well go pick up everyone's guns since they're all home right now. Got to take advantage of the situation.

What are you talking about? I watched coverage of it this AM - hence my post upthread about "the shooting in Glendale".

A mass shooting with an AR-15 style rifle, usually this would be a blaring red headline everywhere you go. Went on snapchat drinking and showing off his rifle prior to the shooting, ranting about “society”. But since this guys Hispanic, it’s more of a meh.

Let’s take a look at the home pages of the MSM, shall we?

CNN - a small mention 2/3 down the page
MSNBC - nothing
ABC news - nothing
Reuter’s - nothing
Politico - nothing

No social media hash tags, no calls for gun control from the media pundits, funny how that works.

Probably was quietly determined it wasn't an AR-15

Terror related, and possibly a second suspect still at large

Because it was "only" 3 people shot, and no one dead. Doesn't move the needle much when it comes to "mass shootings" in this country.

Agreed.

I wonder what these stats are for this year...

DAILY GUN VIOLENCE IMPACTING PEOPLE OF ALL AGES IN THE U.S.
Without seeing the numbers, it may be easier to dismiss the severity of our current gun violence epidemic. By sharing these gun violence statistics, our goal is to inform, educate, and to ignite change across the country. If these numbers anger and upset you as much as they do us, join our fight and take action against gun violence.

"Every day, 313 people are shot in the United States. Among those:

103 people are shot and killed
210 survive gunshot injuries
95 are intentionally shot by someone else
63 die from gun suicide
10 survived an attempted gun suicide
1 is killed unintentionally
90 are shot unintentionally
1 is killed by legal intervention
4 are shot by legal intervention
1 died but the intent was unknown
12 are shot but the intent was unknown"

Want to fix gun violence in America? Go local.

I would question using the Brady Campaign as a source - they're the equivalent of anti-vaxxers when it comes to the gun debate. Right off the bat, their number states 103 people are shot and killed every day. Given that further down the page, they state that 37,603 people die from "gun violence" annually (which includes suicides, police shootings, etc) and given that they break down suicides as a separate number (63) that gives us 22,995 annually from suicide (sounds about right) and 37,595 shot and killed separately from suicide (about 250% higher than the actual numbers, considering 37,603 - 22,995 = 14,608). They also have a long, long history of disinformation campaigns, heavy bias, etc. Oh, and they're pretty much solely funded by Michael Bloomberg, who's made no secret that he doesn't think anyone should have guns. It's like using InfoWars as a source.

A busy weekend in Chicago. Most killed in a Memorial Day weekend there since 2015 including a young boy. How about getting the criminals off the street. They account for the majority of our nations gun violence.

From your link:

"In New York, a city of eight million people, only 1.5% of census tracts saw two or more gun homicide incidents in 2015. Thatís a much lower percentage than St Louis, where a shocking 44% of census tracts saw multiple gun homicides in 2015.

Compared with St Louis, New York also has much broader swathes of the city that saw no gun homicides at all.

New York Cityís murder rate of about four murders per 100,000 people is neatly in line with the national average. "

Looks like NYC, Bloomberg, & Brady know something, no?
