According to the Gun Violence Archive, over 400 mass shootings in 2023 alone have occurred. The incident occurred at 19:00 local time (02:00 GMT) while the bar advertised a $8 (£6.30) spaghetti night and a rock music concert. Citing a police source, the event may have begun as a domestic dispute between the gunman and his wife.
Authorities identified the suspect as John Snowling, a retired sergeant who served for the Ventura Police Department in California until 2014. At least one weapon was seized at the site.
Katrina Foley, an Orange County supervisor, stated on X, formerly known as Twitter, that she was “heartbroken to hear of another senseless mass shooting, this time in our own backyard.”
Heartbroken to hear of another senseless mass shooting, this time in our own backyard. My office has received updates from the DA and Sheriff’s Department, I am continuing to watch this closely.https://t.co/hr7bRtNXGv

Orange County Senator Dave Min was devastated at the news. Our district is one of the safest in the country, yet we, too, are plagued by the scourge of mass shootings.
Cook’s Corner is a popular stop for bikers traveling through the Santa Ana Mountains’ foothills. Arnold Schwarzenegger, the actor and former California governor, attended a reception there in 2006 and arrived on a motorcycle.
In the United States, gun control is a contentious issue. While polls show that the majority of Americans support tougher gun legislation, many Republicans are opposed to the idea.
