Scottish Socialists wrote:Thousand Oaks: Las Vegas shooting survivor among dead

A man who survived a mass shooting in Las Vegas last year was among those killed in Wednesday's attack in California, his family says.

Telemachus Orfanos, 27, died alongside 11 others when a man opened fire at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, north-west of Los Angeles.

He escaped death last year when a gunman killed 58 people in Las Vegas.
A number of survivors of that shooting, the worst in modern US history, have said they were at the bar on Wednesday.

"My son was in Las Vegas with a lot of his friends and he came home. He didn't come home last night," his mother told ABC News.

"It's particularly ironic that after surviving the worst mass shooting in modern history, he went on to be killed in his hometown," his father told the Ventura County Star.


A 27-year old who survived the Las Vegas shooting has been shot dead at the Thousand Oaks bar in California.

It’s gotten so much out of hand that a man who escaped one shooting has been shot dead in a shooting in his own hometown. There needs to be a lot done to reduce the amount of shootings.
What do you think about this incident, and what do you think should be done?

The first thread on this incident was at the top of Page 2. Would it have killed you to look beyond the first page?

You gloating at an excuse to blame all women for the Thousand Oaks shooting?

Crimes committed by Muslims will be proof of a pan-Islamic plot and Islam's inherent evil. On the other hand, crimes committed by non-Muslims will merely be the acts of mentally ill lone wolves who do not represent their professed belief system at all.
The probability of someone secretly participating in homosexual acts is directly proportional to the frequency and loudness of their publicly professed disapproval and/or disgust for homosexuality.
If Donald Trump accuses an individual of malfeasance without evidence, it is almost a certainty either he or someone associated with him has in fact committed that very same malfeasance to a greater degree.

Are you trying to blame his ex wife for this? In that case, all men should be imprisoned for Lynn Fromm's attempt.

Clearly if those stupid patients carried guns of their own they could have shot first and kept bullets out of their own bodies. /s

Aside from the sheer irony of you always sourcing tweets, a single tweet by a random physician is utterly meaningless and only serves to feed your emotion-fueled nonsense.

It's even worse than that: sourcing articles where the headline passes a tweet by a single medical examiner off as coming from multiple doctors to create the illusion that the streets are filled with a rain of bullets.

"Widespread support"

What counts as widespread? Did they poll all doctors who have Twitter accounts or did they just look at random tweets?
