It appears it was a semi-automatic pistol. It appears to be relationship issues (or unrequited love). Nothing makes this appear to be the usual school shooting event.
Shooting at California's Saugus High School leaves 2 students dead, suspect in custody, officials say
Two students, a 16-year-old girl and a 14-year-old, are dead and three other teens were injured Thursday after a 16-year-old suspect -- who was transported to the hospital and is in "grave" condition -- opened fire at Saugus High School in California, officials said.
"Suspect is in custody and being treated at a local hospital," Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva had tweeted.
Six people, all students, had gunshot wounds when police arrived at the scene around 7:40 a.m., Los Angeles County Sheriff's Capt. Kent Wegener said Thursday afternoon during a news conference. It was later discovered that one of the victims was the suspect, an Asian male student at the school whose 16th birthday is today, Wegener said.
I'm sure that there's a lot that are capable. It's just that no one wants to go prison for child abuse. (I'm assuming that you're talking about parents using physical punishment).Apparently no one is capable of kicking anyone else's ass to teach them a lesson anymore. Too "old school," I guess.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky, is to blame for Thursday's school shooting at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, Calif. after he stalled federal legislation that could have prevented the tragedy, claimed Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, D-N.Y.
"What I hear from parents is they're mad as hell and they are frustrated that the people in [D.C.] aren't doing anything. And I want parents to know I hear that," Maloney told MSNBC's "Andrea Mitchell Reports."
"You’re right to point out that 100 feet that way [from where I'm standing] is the House Chamber where multiple important pieces of gun safety legislation have been passed," Maloney went on. "A couple hundred feet that way is the Senate Majority Leader's office where he has bragged about being the 'Grim Reaper' and killing all of those bills, without putting them on the floor, without coming up with his own version."
I think he's O/V talking about kids, Back in the day they (the teachers) would let you fight it out, Without going to getting trouble ; )I'm sure that there's a lot that are capable. It's just that no one wants to go prison for child abuse. (I'm assuming that you're talking about parents using physical punishment).
Link?Just read his Facebook account. Clearly he was a loaner and may have even been picked on. His Facebook cried out for help...and since it's open to the public it seems no one, not even his parents, cared. I could be wrong but that's how it looks at first glance.
Revealed: Late father of California school shooter was an avid hunter who owned several weapons, made his own bullets and was once arrested on suspicion of abusing his wife.
Progressive ogres now burning the midnight oil writing legislation banning use, access or exposure of minors under age 21 to any firearm or ammunition, specifically handling, discharge or any aspect of training with said items.'He grew up around firearms, it wasn't a mystery, he knew how to use it and understood how it worked, he was responsible. He came off as a very responsible person.'
And I'd bet a shot of bourbon he never once said, "Mom, Dad, I need to talk to you about something." Instead he goes to FB where no one cares.Just read his Facebook account.

We have raised wussies!! in the era of everybody gets a trophy, there are no losers, or don't say anything that might hurt ANYBODIES feelings I am left wondering if we brought this on ourselves. Could it be that these shootings are a direct result of never letting our kids feel the pressures of failure or general hurt feelings, I have to wonder if some of our kids are too ill equipt to handle life so they commit suicide and, because some of our kids are wussies they are too scared to commit these acts by themselves so they take their peers with them.
At risk of sounding too harsh, I wish this kid had enough balls that he might have eaten that bullet by himself and NOT taken others with him.
