Before everyone goes thinking this is Los Angeles or San Francisco, it's not. This is Riverside, CA. Full of rednecks and white supremacists.

I wonder whether stricter gun control law, at the federal level, could have prevented this tragedy.

What difference does it make what firearm was used? Obviously, the capabilities of different weapons yield different results. The point we should be focusing on is that people are pointing those guns, and shooting those guns at the police and the civilian population because of the anti-social tendencies of this new "Social Media Society." Cowardly people today are rewarded with "likes" "thumbs up" for inane and reprehensible comments that in days past, would have been met with disdain and social punishment. Now, the misinformed are puppets for the media, and like lemmings, are marching to the beat of our country's demise. The people using guns illegally, the people talking about the destruction of our country's identity and the anarchists proclaiming war against the US, should be "outed" and not "awakened" to some fleeting, destructive and ephemeral social cause.

Those police officers are true heroes as well as a Marine in the area. Th marine walking his dog nearby heard the shooting including hearing a mom and her two young twin sons screaming for help. He raced down to the scene ran over to the car where bullets were going into the car and grabbed them and pulled them out and put them behind the engine block of a car to save them.

POS ex-con served 10 yrs for attempted murder. According to his father he seemed depressed and was having marital problems. So just because your f**king truck was getting towed, you decide to go out in a blaze of glory and have a shootout with the cops??? Well good riddance asshole!!! Enjoy hell!! https://abc7.com/what-we-know-about-chp-riverside-shooting-suspect-aaron-luther/5463959/

What a tragic loss of a CHP officer. This open season on cops has to stop. Thanks, Obama. At least in this case the citizens won't have the expense of a trial and housing this asshole for the next twenty or thirty years. That's a horrible burden on the victims and their families.

did the officers forget to ask nicely "Please don't shoot me" (sorry, had to, just came from article about law requiring officer to plead for life before shooting, an armed psychopath)

What’s very interesting is that almost 30 officers have been killed this year and most by handguns or long guns and you don’t hear one officer with any sense screaming for more gun control laws...they just want criminals to be controlled..

Remember, do not say "gunman" in Berkeley CA. Must be genderless. "Firearm utilizer"? What if the gunman is German?
