A group of friends who survived the Las Vegas mass shooting in 2017 lived through another tragedy at the Gilroy Garlic Festival, where a gunman killed 3 people and injured 12. Last year, other Las Vegas survivors narrowly escaped yet another shooting. It’s a sickening commentary on where we are now.
We’ve reached this part of the mass shooting news cycle: The gunman who killed at least three and injured at least a dozen others at a California food festival used a legally purchased semi-automatic weapon, local police said today. This is almost always the case, and that’s exactly the problem.
