    4 killed in California

    SANTA MARIA, Calif. - Four men were shot to death in a junk yard Tuesday near California's central coast in what police called "a case of workplace violence." A suspect was taken into custody.

    The shooting at Black Road Auto was reported about 4 p.m., and all four victims were dead by the time police and medics arrived, Police Chief Danny Macagni told the Santa Maria Times.

    The victims, whose names were not immediately released, were shot at close range, Macagni said. One victim was found outside the junk yard, and three were found inside.

    The gun used in the shooting was found at the scene.

    "This is a case of workplace violence," the chief said. "We have a lot of work to do here. We have a very large crime scene."

    Police aided by California Highway Patrol helicopters searched the area to see whether there were more victims. Macagni said police believed there was "a sole suspect that entered the premises and fired the shots."

    Santa Maria is a city of 92,000 people 150 miles northwest of Los Angeles, in northwestern Santa Barbara County.
    This is why I believe in the right to carry everywhere,you never know when somebody will turn to violence to exact revenge,it says one individual was found dead outside the property,i'm assuming he may of been trying to run,had he ben armed instead outcome may of been totally different.This happened in a State that has made it almost impossible for a normal person to get a chl and restricts some firearms

    More and more, people decide that killing is the way to take out their frustrations. You never know when trouble is going to happen. I'm fortunate to live in Fl. where we have the right to carry concealed.....it doesn't make it safer, it just makes it so that I can defend myself and my family.

    I'm fortunate to live in a county that issues permits and is within Kalifornia. but most of the populace is not. They are often victims.

    wow...this is what really annoys me that my workplace does not allow me to carry. I have a co-worker who is VERY disgruntled and honestly I fear the day may come when he would try something. I sit directly behind him.

    I don't even have my CCW yet, but even when I do I won't be able to protect myself from him if that day ever comes.

    Mellman, I assume you are with the US Postal disservice. Sorry, couldn't resist that. Otherwise, if there are no metal detectors you might consider something like Ruger's new .380. It's so small it can be hidden almost anywhere.

    The answer to this is: It depends.
    When you say 'not allowed,' are you talking about company policy?
    If so, some have decided that living is more important than a job.

    If, on the other hand, 'not allowed' means illegal according to state or local law, then I'm sure NO ONE on this board carries where not legal.

    According to the most recent stats I've been able to find, murder and killings in California total in the neighborhood of 2400 a year.

    The first definition is most certainly what I meant. Obviously I plan to obey all the laws of my state, and others.
