    Sherlock.Am old enuf 2 remember Communism. WE HAVE NOW BECOME THE ENEMY! See how our Govt. controls "We the people", us average American citizens. Avoid S.W. American States; especially if ur female! Compare female deaths between Iraq-Afghanistan and California. Start with L.A. County, Riverside, etc. & work ur way North to Oregon State line.No longer America, land of the "Free".

    It is really sad that so many live's were taken or injured. Families were robbed of love one's. It's very sad that we can't attend an event with out having to worry about some disgrunted person is going to show up a take other people's life's in their own hands!!! My thoughts and prayers go out to these families. I am sure the shooter will get what he derserves.

    Hi Chrissy. I prefer cold milk over coffee. I never understood the big deal about coffee, but to each their own I guess.
