On Wednesday, November 7, a shooting occurred in Southern California at a bar. Ian David Long,  a 28-year-old US marine veteran, was identified as the gunman who killed 12 people, including an officer. Long was armed with a legally purchased handgun, and reportedly visited the bar frequently with friends.
