There's been yet another mass shooting, this time in California:
Five people are dead — including the suspect — in a mass shooting at a school some 15 miles southwest of Red Bluff, where at least another 10 people have been hospitalized, some of them children.

Tehama County Undersheriff Phil Johnston confirmed two children were also shot and wounded, but said children were not among the dead.

"It's a very sad day for us in Tehama County," said a deputy, who was visibly shaken.

The gunman, who still hasn't been identified, shot both inside and outside Rancho Tehama Elementary School, Johnston said.
I can't even be horrified anymore. It's like looking out the window and noticing that it's raining. It just happens now, and there are no available means to stop it.

A Free Republic commenter notices a pattern in recent mass shootings:
I grew up 1/2 hour south of there.

Conservative counties.

Interesting patterns... shootups happening in these and against these types of folks in defenseless positions.
Yup -- a country music show in Vegas, a church in Sutherland Springs, and now this. Conservative America. (Today's shooting took place in Tehama County, which is part of California's District 1, where Trump won by nearly 20 points.)

So what is this Freeper's theory about why shootings are taking place in conservative America?
I am certain connections exist, they either haven’t been found or deep state is turning a blind eye.
Yeah, that must be it. It must be that the Deep State is ignoring problems in Conservistan. It can't possibly be because everybody in Conservistan has a freaking gun, or multiple guns, including the rageoholics, and nobody dares to try to disarm those rageoholics, because FREEDOM.

And what do you know, that appears to be the case once again:
The Rancho Tehama Reserve — a subdivision home to about 1,485 people — is described on its website as a “quiet private country community” located 12 miles west of Interstate 5 between Red Bluff and Corning. The community is a place “where people are friendly and the pace is relaxed," the website reads.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, it was 86.3 percent white in 2010 and had a poverty rate of 43 percent.

Resident Brian Flint said he got a call in the morning that his roommate was injured and that his truck had been stolen. It turned out his neighbor was the gunman, Flint said.

“The crazy thing is that the neighbor has been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large magazines,” Flint said. “We made it aware that this guy is crazy and he’s been threatening us.”

Living near the gunman was "hell," Flint said, and the man was a known felon who often harassed him and his neighbors.
Of course, no one managed to disarm this ticking time bomb, who, if he was a felon, shouldn't even have been able to own guns. I guess, under those circumstances, thoughts and prayers are just not very effective.
