12 Dead After Mass Shooting At Country Bar In Southern California

A devastating and horrible act of callous murder has happened. A deranged gunman, who after hurling in smoke grenades, shot 30 rounds from a pistol at a student night held in a country bar in Southern California, killing 12 people and a police officer before taking his own life. What is going on?! Only a day after the midterm election results saw Republicans win an extra four seats in the Senate from Democrats, suddenly, another mass shooting happens. What are the chances?

The shooting, which happened at Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, Southern California, at 11:20pm, has shocked the nation all over again.

The shooter, dressed in all black, let off at least 30 rounds in the shooting via extended mags, and even threw in smoke grenades to blind the crowd to make his killing more effective. Twelve people were killed in total, including a Ventura Deputy Sheriff, before the shooter turned his own gun on himself.

The shooter wore a black trench coat, glasses, a baseball cap, and a mask to cover his face, and as of now, not much is known about the gunman or his identity, apart from the fact that he killed twelve people and injured several more. Ron Helus, a Ventura County sheriff sergeant, was also among the dead. 

Ron Helus leaves behind a wife and son. He had 29 years of experience in the field, and the fact that the shooter targeted a student night at a country bar, makes one wonder what was the motivation for this despicable massacre…

An additional 10-15 victims were also severely injured in the attack, including a female cashier, a doorman, and other college students. Was it Antifa? Was it a Deep State hit? Or was it another disillusioned shooter strung up on the drugs of Big Pharma? So far, nobody is sure, but the authorities have said that the mass shooting was indeed planned.

After approaching the female cashier and shooting at her, he threw smoke grenades into the Borderline Bar and Grill before letting off rounds onto the dance floor of the country music bar, with intentions to kill as many as possible.

The first responders from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office and Highway Patrol arrived at 11.23pm, three minutes after the attack began. The shooter then got into a gunfight with police. The coward shooter then took his own life, but not before shooting the deputy sheriff who later died in Los Robles Hospital.

Minutes later, the SWAT team arrived and found 11 victims inside Borderline Bar and Grillwhilst there were an estimated 200 people inside at the time. The attack could have been much worse if it weren’t for the quick action of first responders on the scene.

One witness told ABC7 news, “I was at the front door talking to my stepdad. I heard these big pops.”

“There were three or four and I hit the ground. The security guard was dead and the man had a handgun.”

College students threw chairs onto the bar’s windows in a desperate attempt to escape the shooters attack, which goes to show just how horrifying this was, and whilst the mainstream news media will now claim that its gun control that’s needed, one must begin to be very suspicious of this latest massacre, much to the horror of everyone involved, the people of America, and to all people across the world.

One witness who was at the bar with his step-son, described the shooting unfolding, stating, “He shot the front doorman, who was just a young man. Then he shot the cashier, just a young girl. Then he started moving to the right. He wasn’t looking at us. Then he went into the office, where all the cash and stuff is. He didn’t say anything at all. He just started shooting.”

The SWAT team, the Joint Terrorism Task Force, and a bomb squad were all called to the scene after the Ventura County Police officers first arrived and dealt with the coward shooter. 

‘The Borderline’, as it’s known thorough word of mouth, has been popular with college students, and hosted many country music nights as stated on their Instagram page. The event was aimed at college students whom were into country music, which surely does make you wonder as for the motivations for this latest attack on the American people.

This Southern California shooting in Thousand Oaks is already sparking comparisons with the massacre that happened a little more than one year ago in Las Vegas, outside the Mandalay Bay, which also targeted a country music festival. Like we said before, what are the chances? 

Let’s await the news of the suspect and his background story, as well as the official mainstream media narrative of this latest suspicious attack on young Americans directly after the midterm elections.

We hope that the real story will be revealed, and may the lives lost find peace. We are deeply saddened by this latest attack, seemingly on the sovereignty of brilliant young Americans, that sought to enjoy an evening of fun, but had their lives cut short. Words cannot explain how we feel right now, as we’re writing this… and we believe the whole world must surely be feeling the same.
