Twelve people, including a sheriff's sergeant, were killed in a mass shooting at a crowded Southern California bar Wednesday night.

There must not have been a "No Guns Allowed" sign posted anywhere. That sure would've helped.

Why do you news people always give the name or picture of the gunman air time. Don't give those POS' the 15 seconds of post-mortem fame they want. Remember the victims and family members lost instead. You in the news media are part of this problem as well, FIX IT.

Is this fake news? California passed magazine size and other gun restrictions so that this sort of thing wouldn't be possible. Oh, wait. Criminals don't obey laws. So, passing "feel good" legislation only prevents law abiding citizens from protecting themselves. This "gun control" legislation obviously doesn't stop gun violence if a state with some of the most strict legislation has as much, or more, such crime as any other state. But, at least the politicians and naive citezenry who don't care about their own constitutional rights have some laws they can feel good about. Get serious people. If you want to reduce gun violence you need to increase mental health outreach. Don't say it's too expensive unless you're saying the lives lost to such crime are a better, cheaper alternative.

Oh yeah arnt their laws about "Magazine restrictions" "bullet button" "prohibited pistol grip"? Yes there is. But I thought criminals were supposed to obey gun restrictions? Oh hey we learned another valuable lesson today. They don't. Remember in Texas with the church shooting? A passer-by with an AR15 took down the gun man. That is a great example of how law abiding citizens can help protect the unprotected. Gun laws don't do anything. So California needs to get their act straight. My thoughts and prayers out for the family's. But come on now. Get it together California.

1:56 "It doesn't matter what community you're in. It can happen anywhere." Except that just isn't true. It rarely ever happens in Australia, Japan, or Switzerland. It can happen anywhere IN THE UNITED STATES but it can't happen nearly as often in countries that actually regulate or require firearms safety. The US has far more homicides per capita because the guns are so easy to get.

Break the law and carry a canceled gun at all times. That's how you keep the death toll down in these mass shootings. If one citizen was able to distract the shooter, more would of lived. Citizens need to put the fear in criminals if they attempt things like this. Politicians don't have a social life outside of their bubble. Their gun laws will never work. The world would be a safer place if criminals never know who's armed. It's all about the culture and what citizens are willing to do to stop things like this. Our culture is weak and as of right now these shootings won't stop until citizens grow a pair and break some basic laws.

California has some very restrictive gun laws. This should tell you more laws don't work. People will always find a way around the system. Mental illness is always tied to these people. You could outlaw guns and the criminals and the violently mentally ill will retain them.

Clearly mental health care needs a huge upgrade, as does the treatment of veterans. With a new house of representatives and many other new officials in the US taking charge, it is now time to see how they will react. We're all watching, and we're all sick and tired of thoughts and prayers. we need action and results.

To all the rethuglicans in the comments, if someone had a gun in a crowded bar, they couldn't have stopped this, there probably would have been collateral if someone did. Instead of saying we should arm people, we should actually fund our healthcare to treat people with mental illnesses and we should allow the CDC to study gun violence like the epidemic it is so we can actually have an effective solution.

This is getting old, this footage looks just like the Orlando shooting... all they continue to give the public is audio of gun shots. Saying people were "bloody" etc, but yet no one seems to be bloody or hurt... just shirtless for some reason lol. I live in South L.A and have witness many REAL shootings and sadly, a few deaths in broad daylight but for some reason they never made it on the news. The way the community reacted when just *1 person* was murdered compared to here (where many were) is completely night and day. These actors are proving they've never been in a real situation like that. Most of them are talking casually when in reality they wouldn't even be able to talk or atleast be shooken up. C'mon 100 people in that bar, and majority were college students on a *Wednesday* night?? Dancing in a bar? Not a club? 100 people but no footage?? Smh. What won't people lie about or do for money?? Attack me if you must, but you guys are only helping diminish what's left of freedom of speech, by now calling it "hate speech", etc. Look into things further, don't just take second hand information. Everyone knows the government/media lies, but yet continues to trust them? Makes no sense. They keep fear in the people to keep the people reliant on them and they fake things like this just to see how gullible we can be and to disarm the people. Smh.

I am sorry to those families and friends affected by this horrible situation. Mental health needs to come to the forefront of discussions. If you or someone you know is suffering you are not alone and don’t turn a blind eye to it. If you see a friend struggling do not turn your back on them or say it’s not that bad. Tell them they need help and you’re there for them. No matter how many laws you put into place if we don’t get mental problems under control these things will keep happening just by different means. Please if you are suffering and need help, contact me and I will do whatever I can to help you get the help you need same goes for people who need help with friends who need help. YOU ARE NOT ALONE! I promise you!

I'm a democrat but I believe in everyone owning a gun, even though I myself don't like holding or firing one. For those who have never fired one... it's very obvious that they are deadly weapons. They're loud and the kick back on even the small ones can be enough to rattle a nervous person. But the problem with getting rid of guns completely or making it harder for people to access them is not the potential for "government overthrow" or whatever conspiracy theorists love to tout as a reason to always have a gun. It's because people like this man who murdered innocent people will always find a way to procure a gun and use them in the most vile, haunting ways. It's not a popular opinion, and I know how controversial it is and please forgive me if it hurts or upsets you to see me say... that if only 1 or 2 other patrons had guns on them, there's a chance-- not a guarantee, but a chance-- that this gunman could have been taken out or neutralized and many lives could have been saved. We can't depend on the police to save us. We can't count on the fact that once guns are unavailable to everyday people that murderers will stop murdering with guns. We can't rely on people miles away to rescue us when danger is feet across the room. We need to acknowledge that we (you, you behind the computer screen) are our (your and your friends') only hope in intervening when someone wants to take your or someone else's life. Not the cop down the city block. Not the security officer of whatever establishment you're in. Do you really want to put your or your loved ones' fate in someone else's hands? Anyway, I hope those affected by this tragedy find the help they need. I wish we could all help but all we can really do is watch with heavy hearts.

Chicago has the most strict gun laws in the country and yet two weeks ago within three days (Friday through Sunday) 52 people were shot and 10 died. Calif. has strict gun laws and you can see how much that did any good. If you outlaw guns then only outlaws will have the guns. Something the left does not seem to understand. These crazy people will find a gun even if they have to go across our border to Mexico. WHAT don't they understand???
