My thoughts on the Thousand Oaks Shooting, and Ian Long

A young #Marine with a passionate plea. More needs to be done for Veterans with PTSD.


So… I don’t really want to talk about it, but part of me feels like I need to. Ian Long was an honorably discharged Marine Corps Veteran. Ian was also responsible for the murder of 12 individuals at a bar I used to frequent in Thousand Oaks back when I was a Marine. Ian was 28 years old. He and I served during the same time frame, potentially brushing shoulders in Hawaii, even though I never met him.

This is absolutely disgusting to me. I want to say that first and foremost. If he was not dead, I would gladly line up on the firing line to put him down for what he did. What he did is NOT what Marines do. He betrayed his country, his brotherhood, his family, and most of all the families of those poor people who were in that bar.

All of that being said…
