Los Angeles authorities have confirmed that a teen who killed two students, and himself, in a mass shooting at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, Calif., on Nov. 14 was armed with a “ghost gun,” a weapon which is becoming more popular in spite of the state’s tough gun laws.

“[The Saugus High shooter’s gun] was assembled from parts, it had no serial number — it becomes what is known as a ‘ghost gun’,” Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva told ABC7 on Thursday of the .45 caliber semiautomatic handgun Nathaniel Tennosuke Berhow, 16, reportedly used in the shooting.

Authorities don’t know how Berhow was able to get the gun, as he was too young to purchase one legally.

According to experts and law enforcement officials, ghost guns are becoming a more common — and increasingly concerning — way for criminals to bypass gun laws and get their hands on firearms.

Ghost guns are self-assembled firearms that are built from unregulated kits or 3D printers. Kits sold online or by sellers, who usually don’t have a government license, contain unfinished “receivers” or “frames.”

We do not even have laws that can adequately deal with gun technology from a 100 years ago much less the new technologies that are specifically designed to bypass laws already in place. 

We are dying by the thousands and still nobody is doing anything substantive to protect us.

    There was something on the news about a case before the Supreme Court about local gun restrictions, if we lose the case,they can dismantle any local gun restrictions.

    The ‘Greatest School In America’
    A HuffPost investigation published in April revealed that Atlah World Missionary Church ― designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center ― runs a K-12 private school where kids have been psychologically abused and systematically taught to fear LGBTQ people. The story was based on interviews with 27 people connected to the church and school, many of them former students with similar stories to Kaiya who said the institution was run like “a cult.”
    “former students have continued to come forward with their own stories of what they experienced, even as Manning has worked to discredit HuffPost’s initial investigation into Atlah. Manning called the investigation a hit job from “LGBTQ mafia” that had been written by a “lesbian witch.”

    “about two dozen students shuffled through Atlah’s doors when the academic year started in September, entering a school that bills itself as one that can save children “from the homosexual demons in the public school system.” – “Over the summer, the giant letterboard sign outside the church read, “The LGBTQ mafia is posting lies, attempting a hit job on our church. They want Harlem to be white and homo.””

    Hopefully some of these ghost guns will be assembled improperly and only backfire and thus kill the gunman.
