4 dead and multiple injured. Murder/suicide by a disgruntled employee.

I thought California's gun laws were supposed to stop this kind of thing......

Not to mention UPS policy, nationwide prohibiting any guns in any of their facilities. If only criminals would start obeying signs, and following the laws.

Obviously the laws are not stringent enough. All residents of California must turn in all firearms, ammunition, magazines and accessories. Please ship them to the California Firearms Disposal site in Texas. Address to follow.

Just heard a radio report; apparently he had TWO unregistered assault pistols....

California does not have a gun problem
Americans living on our west coast have a California problem.
When any govt, or church,says This you can't read, are forbidden to know, the result is tyranny and oppression. Little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked; no force can control a free man, not the rack, bombs, not anything, you can't conquer a free man, at most you can kill him.

UPS should rethink their no guns policy. This is exactly the kind of thing that can happen with that kind of policy. Defenseless employees! :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Chaplin said there was no immediate confirmation that the gunman was a UPS employee. He said police recovered two guns, including an assault pistol the killer used to take his own life.


Emphasis mine.

Well the police were prepared against an "assault pistol" because they were standing in the parking lot with " drawn" rifles.
