As the debate over gun control heats up between second amendment protectors and gun control supporters, another shooting has happened in California just days after a young girl was shot after attending Obama’s speech about gun violence in Chicago. Is there really a debate when it comes to protecting the people who live in any country? Compromises will have to be made in order to fix the growing gun violence problem which is only one of several problems the government needs to fix. Whether in favor of gun control or not, these shootings should be few to non existent with the appropriate gun measure put into place.
A woman in Tustin, California just 35 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles, was shot to death in her home Tuesday by a young man who then went on a carjacking shooting spree across Orange Country killing two more people and wounding three others before killing himself. According to Tustin Lt. Paul Garaven, many were shot out but no one was hurt. The motives of the shooter were unknown and could only be described as in his 20s. The connection between the victims and shooter are unclear at this time said Orange County sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino. The shooting happened at 4:45 a.m. when a call came in about a woman shot multiple times in a house in Ladera Ranch about 55 miles southeast of Los Angeles. Several shootings occurred over the next hour at other locations including a carjacking on interstate 5 which left the carjacking victim uninjured and left an innocent bystander shot and taken to the hospital. The gunman also fired at several other vehicles on the freeway. The gunman soon ran out of gas in the pick up truck he carjacked, so he then stopped on Route 55 and McFadden Avenue in Santa Ana and executed another victim before taking the man’s BMW. The shooter then drove to a Tustin business and carjacked a utility type pickup after wounding one person and killing another. When officers tried to stop him in the city of Orange he got out of the vehicle and killed himself. The southbound 55 McFadden Avenue off ramp was closed til further notice.
