Nation’s Toughest Gun Laws Fail to Protect Students ~ VIDEO

California-( California gun laws have failed to protect its citizens once again at a California high school 40 minutes outside Los Angeles.

On Thursday morning, 20 minutes before classes started, a 16-year old student entered Saugus High School in Santa Clarita on his birthday, pulled a .45 caliber handgun, and opened fire on his classmate. Sources tell AmmoLand it was a 1911, but the make is unknown. AmmoLand will not be naming the murderer in this article since studies show the seeking of fame plays at least some part in school killings.

The killer fired the pistol one time before it jammed. He was able to clear the jam and continued to fire on students hitting five of the fleeing teens. When he had a single round left in the chamber he turned the pistol on himself and attempted to commit suicide. A 14-year old boy and a 16-year old girl passed away after being rushed to the hospital

Three off duty officers who were dropping their children off at school were the first on the scene. They found six students with gunshot wounds in the quad area of the school. The first call from the school came into 911 at 7:38 AM.

Emergency first responders transported three other students to the hospital by ambulance. Police found the killer still alive in the quad, and EMS crews also rushed him to the hospital. Doctors listed the murderer as in critical condition immediately after the incident.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva wasted no time to exploit the tragedy by invoking images of Columbine, Parkland, and Sandy Hook on CNN as Anderson Cooper swooped in like a vulture.

“With a heavy heart, we’re going to move on with the investigation and figure out what went wrong,” the sheriff said. “I hate to have Saugus be added to the names of Columbine, Parkland, Sandy Hook, but it’s a reality that affects us all throughout the nation — something that we’re going to have to figure out.”

Accord to Sheriff Villanueva, the killer, posted what in hindsight was a foreboding message on his Instagram account the night before the attack, which someone has since changed.

“I also want to acknowledge a posting on the bio of what we believe to be the subject’s Instagram account,” he said. “It says underneath his pseudonym: ‘Saugus have fun at school tomorrow.’ “

There are rumors that the student issued online threats through his social media accounts. Although authorities haven’t been able to confirm the rumors, they are investigating the claims since the changing of the killer’s Instagram account shows someone else has access to his social media and could be scrubbing it clean of evidence or motives.

Law enforcement is investigating who else has access to the killer’s social media accounts and want to see why they made the edits. The FBI does not believe the killer was a part of a group or ideology. They also think that there were not any co-conspirators involved in the planning of the attack.

Democrats took to Twitter to blame the NRA for the shooting. Longshot presidential candidate, Cory Booker, who is currently polling at only 2%, attacked the gun-rights group before the situation was even under control.

“My heart goes out to the students, teachers and parents in Santa Clarita,” Booker Tweeted. “Thank you to the first responders and law enforcement who are still on the scene. We don’t have to accept our children being terrorized by guns. We demand gun safety. We need to bring a fight to the NRA.”

The two murdered students also do not appear to have any connection to the killer. The hospital listed the murderer’s condition as grave. As of yet, authorities do not have a motive for the attack.

Deplorable Bill

You can’t legislate morality. It doesn’t work, it never has and it never will. Still, there are two dead young people and four more wounded including the shooter. With all the anti gun laws in communist californiacation, how did this still happen? What would make a teen age kid think it was OK to murder his fellow students and then turn the gun on himself? Video games? Was he bullied? Was he sick in the head? How many laws did he break in getting a hand gun, going to a gun free zone, attempted murder, murder and attempted suicide? He… Read more »

“Laws are for honest and moral people” Actually honest and moral people don’t need laws because they are honest and moral. I don’t need a law to tell me not to rob rape or pillage. If there were no laws against that I wouldn’t go out and rob rape and pillage then either.


a few that I can think of: theft of a fiearm not his. Possession in public unsupervised, felony. Carry in public of a loaded handgun without a permit. Underage possession lof loaded handgun. Not sure how he got to schoo, but transport in a vehicle, leaded without Mother MayI Card, felony. Possession/transport of firearm wiht intent to use in a crime, felony times six. Murder, two felony counts, attempted murder four more. Someone else can count them up, but if he lives he will have enough felony charges to lock him up for life. No deathpenalty for minors, even if… Read more »


Blame the NRA? That’s like blaming NASCAR for all the idiots speeding and crashing on the highways. . . Hmmm

Courageous Lion - Hear Me Roar - Jus Meum Tuebor

So now I know that NASCAR is behind all those idiots speeding and crashing. I KNEW IT!!


That’s right, blame the NRA for this shooting. How about the shooter’s mental health condition… Will useless Cory Booker mention that? Let’s face it, the liberals in California and those in Congress are not about to suggest that we get to the real issues. Blame law-abiding gun owners for the crimes of the sick and those with hostile motives. They are all useless.

THE NRA DID IT? WTF? I had nothing to do with it and I am the NRA.

The other Jim

Three Off-Duty Officers were onsite dropping off their kids at school…but were they armed? Is it a “Gun Free Zone”? Off Duty Police Officers are not allowed to be armed in “Gun Free Zones”? So what saved more lives was that the shooter ran out of ammunition, not the Unarmed Off Duty Police Officers in the Gun Free School Zone?

The state of califuckedup is so much more wise than common peasantry.

Courageous Lion - Hear Me Roar - Jus Meum Tuebor

The “state” is a fiction. It is the PSYCHOS in control over there that need to have their heads handed to them on a platter.


Yup. Six and one in the staandare M1911 handgun, seven rounds, seven hits, three deaths, one including the perp if the above post is correct.

Sadly, that’s a far better “hit rate” than LE demonstrate. It would be interesting to know the kid’s previous experience. A newby would never “score” that well.


Adding more “Laws” to the books will NOT do anything to stop these after all it is hard to really get a firearm without jumping through a few hoops. Better enforcement of current laws would be better than adding more that will do nothing..


There is a way to stop this kind of murderous madness within our schools, and you do it by implementing the same kind of security that all high-end jewelry stores use: a double door entry system made of bullet proof glass, used as the school’s only entrance. Once you pass the first door, you’re locked in until someone searches you, and opens the second secure door to let you in. If armed, the perp stays locked up until the police arrive. The egress for actual fires and other emergencies are located to the rear of the school, and as metal… Read more »


do that for two thousand bratty kids every day? Are you NUTZ? They already spend far too much time on the busses getting there. What, will they also have to spend an hour or two to be admitted once they get off the bus? Besides, all that will do is to push the danger zone out toward the street. It seems to me that this happened before school actually started in the morning. What is to stop such a dirtbag from pulling the handgun out when everyone is filing off the busses, or queued up to be “processed” in the… Read more »


My state capitol facilities allow concealed carry within all areas of the capitol campus except the State Supreme Court rooms and chambers. But there, state law mandates individual security scrieening and MUST provide individual safe/secure storage for privately owned handguns. All other areas are open to concealed carry. Even the governor’s office, legislative sessions, etc.


Schools are unable to keep students safe or unwilling to keep them safe. Either way, it’s time to hold those entrusted to keep a safe environment accountable.
Every time these morons want more money they always spout off “it’s for the children”. How about spending some of that payroll cash on some real security? After all, it’s for the children.


They still don’t know how he got ahold of the gun. In commiefornia you have to be special to even mention guns. All of those gun laws work, don’t they? Only if you are the shooter.


@ Will, I heard, on fox, that his father passed away and they were assuming he took the gun from his father’s collection. You know that to assume is to make an ass out of you and me. LOL

Imagine that…”laws” don’t deter the mentally deranged. What a shocker.


Just like this one and the one in New Jersey this weekend…..all of these shootings are in GUN FREE ZONES! It’s like fishing in a stocked pond. If you have no resistance, you better believe their will be MORE shootings in schools or other Gun Free Zones. Evil takes the path of least resistance!


Very sad to hear of another shooting at a school. The loss of life is still a concern, as there were some students that lost their lives needlessly. California with its very strict gun laws didn’t prevent this shooting form occurring. A 16 year old was the shooter, he tried to kill himself after shooting the victims, and it didn’t work. I read in my newspaper today that law enforcement didn’t find any manifesto, diary, or a note belonging to the shooter with a motive for his actions. A reason why the shooter did this is unknown at this time,… Read more »

The shooter is currently roasting in hell, since 1530 hrs,yesterday, + or – !

Courageous Lion - Hear Me Roar - Jus Meum Tuebor

LOL! That’s only if he believed in hell.

Belief in water, and its being wet, has NO EFFECT on it being water, AND it being wet.
There are certain universal realities not subject to individual preference.


@wjd – Last I heard, there are big pushes for them here. For now logic has prevailed, but we are at risk and need to stay vigilant in order to block them at state level.
With trump in office, we remain at risk for federal ERPO laws – those could be tougher to block.


ERPOs would not make a damn bit of difference except to the poor citizens swatted because of them.

Old Ch.E.

And that could be any of us if a neighbor didn’t like us, or even an estranged family member.

Old Ch.E.

Come on man. Without Trump in office we would have a hell of a lot more than Red Flag to worry about. These libs never give up. To trumps credit he included “due process” in his statement. Somehow these dem governors and legislators missed that part.

Old Ch.E.

Talked to my rep last Saturday, Dr. Tom Oliverson. He said Red Flags would NEVER pass in Texas if we get out and vote. Talked guns with him a little, man has an arsenal and uses it.


Why aren’t they doing anything about bullying….gangs….drugs that are being crammed down the throats of our youth….that is truly where the problem starts!

I sure as hell wouldn’t put it past them. Like the belt fed machine gun I heard in Las Vegas videos.
