Hard to blame the NRA this time. Took place in a gun free zone in a heavy restricted portion of California. People in the restaurant were disarmed by the property owners, as well as the severe regulations on CC.
No guns signs, show the mentally ill directly where to go.

" Last night I went to the country bar Borderline in Thousand Oaks, California with my girlfriend Ally and her two friends. I am 20 years old and have lived in Thousand Oaks my whole life. I currently go to California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks and am a sophomore.

We were having a great time, until at about 11:20 pm when shots started going off. Smoke grenades were thrown by the entrance, which limited my view of the shooter. It was a pistol I believe, and as the shots started, my girlfriend and I ducked behind the DJ booth.

…

I believe this area was a gun free zone, and although there was security, I don’t believe any were armed. I do know that one security officer was killed right when the shooting started.

If just one person was armed, there is a possibility that it could have been stopped then and there. This is why gun free zones are a danger to us all, and if someone had been there armed, those people would still be alive.

The author of this, a man named Alex Chatoff, praised the police for their quick response in taking out the killer, but he has a point. People inside the bar could have done that as well…if California law didn’t do so much to discourage people from being able to protect themselves." [bearingarms.com]

And your statement begs the question; why is the US unique among wealthier countries that anyone would even consider the need to "protect themselves" with a gun? Anyone that thinks there is such a thing as a 'gun free zone' in THIS country is fooling themselves.

Wow, timing is everything!

Doctors should focus on the 250,000 annual deaths caused by medical mistakes before they take on a cause of death that is not even in the the top ten causes. It is the doctors who have foot in mouth. [cnbc.com]

Sounds good to me if our medical professionals addressed ALL causes of death in this country that can be reduced.

Oh snap! I have to say, the NRA deserved it.
