12 shot dead at a bar in California.
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Nope, not blame. Demonization.

Right now, thousands of people are trying to determine which party the shooter belonged to so that they can use his actions to smear everyone on the other side.

Or blame guns.

In practice, this means blaming the Republicans but it doesn't require the shooter to be a Republican.

Former Marine who saw some combat action. Possible mental health issues. Had some previous encounters with law enforcement.

Dean said his department had several encounters with Long, most recently in April when deputies responded to his home for a complaint of disturbing the peace. At the time, they said Long was irate and acting irrationally.

The crisis team called in to evaluate him discussed whether he might have post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, based on his military service. They concluded that he did not present enough of a danger to himself or others to be taken into custody.

A this rate the Heathers reboot will never air.

Tragedy postpones TV’s Heathers for a third time

This sort of thing got a send-up in a certain episode of Bojack Horseman. Every time there's a mass shooting, Hollywood has to postpone the release of certain movies or TV shows. In the episode that keeps happening to a movie they're trying to release.
