I guess this is news because it was at a school.
How many people were shot in Chicago in the last 24 hours?

Dont worry, this is obviously a mistake as California has tough gun laws and the schools are no gun zones.

It’s like a double blanket of protection.

For the past several weeks, everytime I go to Foxnews.com my screen freezes, goes to the start up screen and eventually unfreezes to return to the foxnews.com page. Anyone else having this problem? How to fix it?

My guess is that the shooter was NOT a legal CCW holder...

Is this in a city called Taft, California...or is it Taft High School in Woodland Hills, California?

You're right - and the gun control laws are sooooooooo powerful in California that the governor's home and official State buildings do NOT have armed security.

Government officials trust the laws to protect them ... just like they trust the laws to protect the children... /s

They’re getting sloppy......

This is the second one with inadequate brainwashing, who neglected to kill himself.

What causes mass shootings? Front page media stories that run incesstantly.

There’s a professor who’s done work to prove this.

These are copycat crimes.

All the publicity given recently to Newtown has something to do with the rash of shootings that occured right after.

The shooters get instant fame - to a demented individual it doesn’t matter that he will be dead when he gets his fame.

The wild hysterical coverage has got to stop! The perp should not be named, instead it should say “random a$$hole.” No name, no picture, no manifesto, no last words, no final note.

ABC reporting one person shot (wounded) with a shotgun. I wonder how many more times this story will change...

Not to diminish the report and whatever is happening, but one peculiarity in this report is the indication that 23ABC news was called by people hiding in a school closet. Now, if you are hiding from a school shooter in a closet, how plausible is it that you are calling ABC news?

How many laws did the shooter break in order to commit this horrendous crime?

Never go to Foxnews.com fixes it for me.

They have a staff of 900 web page designers with not enough to do, so they think of ways to load tracking, counters, cookies, analytic software and ads until you need a 10 gigabit connection to get the page to load under a minute.

I view it more as a double layer of sand in which to bury one's head... If you're one of the politicians or useful idiots who buy into it.

It is not Taft High School in the Los Angeles San Fernando Valley. It is in the town of Taft which is up in near Bakersfield on the Interstate 5.

Yep, concur

it would have fit their gun grabbing agenda more to execute a massive newtown type incident in a deeply gun friendly state with M4 types....to show that gun friendly states need to be less “gun friendly”, as their policies lead to these kind of incidents.

in Kalifornia, this does not apply

copycat.

The Brady Center gun law map shows that California has the toughest gun laws in America. This couldn’t have happened there. It must be a mistake.

It does the same thing to my browser, a solid freeze-up. I just don’t go there anymore.

Taft CA, the scene of the unfunny Robin Williams, Kurt Russell comedy “The Best of Times.”

What causes mass shootings?

One possible answer and repeating a post in hopes of gaining traction:

In addition to the drugs, video games, and all the rest, there seems to be no traction given to the idea that almost all the aggressive violence involving guns in motion pictures comes from the leftist (anti-2nd Ammendment) movie industry.

Do leftist “experts” believe that these thousands of repeated visual promptings have no effect on susceptible minds? Where’s the leftist push to limit such aggressive use of weaponry in motion pictures, now and over the years, in light of Newtown? /rhetoric

Violence in the movies and TV shows, even the ones we all enjoy, do much more to condition our thought processes than authorities, and we, are admitting. It’s not merely “entertainment”.

I was having the same problem (Win-7 Pro), but with the d/ld of 15 new Windows Updates on Wed morning, it’s *fixed itself*. Beats me...

Taft is a smaller town outside of Bakersfield, which is inland and north of Los Angeles.

Bakersfield is all about OIL and ag, and Taft is the same, only smaller.

I would say...maybe 85% of the people in Taft are either illegal aliens, or American Hispanics.

That area is weird; politically conservative, but because of the demographics the per capita crime rate is similar to Mexico.

You forgot to mention that the other 15% are meth heads.
