Teen in California high school shooting rampage used 'ghost gun' made from parts

A 16-year-old boy who opened fire at his Southern California high school, killing two classmates and wounding three others before shooting himself in the head, used a “ghost gun” built from parts, the local sheriff said on Thursday.

Nathaniel Tennosuke Berhow pulled the .45-caliber semi-automatic pistol from his backpack on Nov. 14, his birthday, and shot students at Saugus High School in the Los Angeles suburb of Santa Clarita seemingly at random before turning the gun on himself. He died of his wounds the next day.

“When we did a search of the house, we encountered what’s called a kit gun. The weapon used in the homicide was also a kit gun,” Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva told local KABC-TV in an interview.

“It was assembled from parts, had no serial number. So it becomes what’s known as a ‘ghost gun,’” Villanueva said.

The sheriff told KABC it was not yet clear if the teenage gunman put the weapon together himself. The boy’s father, who died in 2017, was an avid hunter who once owned six guns. But those weapons had been confiscated from him and destroyed, Villanueva said.

Kit guns are sold legally at gun shows and online and are sometimes called “80% percent guns” because they are purchased roughly 80% assembled, he said.

STILL NO MOTIVE

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is an interesting read out of Reuters on this shooting, California School Shooter Dies, with motive a mystery and it mentions the following:

"The stereotype of the loser sociopath is often inaccurate, according to the psychologist who co-wrote federal guidelines for assessing school shooting threats.

Marissa Randazzo, who has interviewed five shooters, said most of those she studied were academically successful and weren’t social outcasts.

What pushes most shooters is some kind of loss or disappointment, often recent, followed by the inability to cope with a feeling of being overwhelmed, said Randazzo, a former chief research psychologist at the U.S. Secret Service who is now CEO of a threat-assessments firm."

“These are acts of suicide as much as homicide,” she said."

The kid's dad died in 2017; I have to wonder if the family had him involved with "talking therapy only", or "chemical therapy", where a class of drugs called SSRIs, Selective Serotonin Uptake Reinhibitors, were prescribed by the boy's doctor.

These drugs are known to have some horrific side-effects, such as wanting to commit suicide or homicide, and the documentation on this can be found at:

IF you have a kid in your family you love very much who has just gone through a really horrific trauma (like losing your dad when you are 17), please make sure that they get some competent, compassionate grief counseling, even if they are adamant that they don't need it. And make DAMNED sure that this teenager is not being prescribed one of these medications.

I know a little something about that kind of trauma; my dad died when I was 18, of a cerebrovascular accident (where heart and brain fail at the same time).

Luckily and fortunately, I was blessed to have my family rally around me, to be sure that I got the help and support I needed.

AKA, a zip gun, which has been around for years...

Tian Shan

Yet, the scumbag politicians, cops, et al, who have an agenda against the gun-owning populace want to romanticize this simple object into a terrifying "ghost gun".
