The gunman is 28-year-old Ian David Long. He is a white man with tattoos. Long-lived in Newbury Park, California which is a 15-minute drive from Thousands Oaks, where the shooting took place at Borderline Bar and Grill close to midnight on Wednesday.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Suspect Ian David Long was a Marine veteran. Authorities had &quot;several contacts&quot; with him over years, including a disturbance call to his home earlier this year.

Long was a Marine Corps veteran. The Marine Corps released a statement saying Long served for five years, from 2008 to 2013, and that he was a machine gunner. He was accorded the Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal, and the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal.

A neighbor believes Long was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Neighbors described him as a troubled ex-Marine “who appeared to have serious mental health problems.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Before authorities said he opened fire at a Thousand Oaks bar, killing 12 people, Ian David Long was known to neighbors in his Newbury Park neighborhood as a troubled ex-Marine who appeared to have serious mental health problems. <a href="https://t.co/tj3gBnSF1C">https://t.co/tj3gBnSF1C</a> <a href="https://t.co/j4zgp0aFAY">pic.twitter.com/j4zgp0aFAY</a></p>&mdash; Los Angeles Times (@latimes) <a href="https://twitter.com/latimes/status/1060597866102734848?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 8, 2018</a></blockquote>

The attacker attended California State University, Northridge after leaving the military. He enrolled in 2013 to study athletic training. He attended until 2016, not graduating.

Long used a legally purchaed .45 caliber handgun. Dressed in black, he traveled from his home to the bar about five miles away from where he tossed smoke bombs and fired into a crowd of 150 to 200 people.

The attacker was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head. It is not clear if Deputies’ shots or his own caused his death. Authorities suspect he killed himself after carrying out the horrific mass shooting.

Now comes another outcry for gun control.

Unfortunately no one with evil intent will follow any law.

Think about it murder is illegal, but does that stop these mental cases from killing wholesale?

All guns could be banned from the law abiding people, yet we would still have criminals shooting people.

If the general populace could just use a smidgeon of commonsense we could tackle the problem, without disarming the general population. Which just gives criminals more soft targets.
