Snark aside, glad there were no deaths reported. Hope they find the shooter. I lived there for a couple years in the mid 90s. It seems to be going downhill.
I agree, CA and NY have tough gun laws and shootings and mass shootings still happen.

I grew up about 30 miles east, Oakland has always been a tough town. School districts love their mega schools and complexes which are cheaper to build. It just adds to the impersonalized environment that alienates students. A 50,000 student university is different, students aren't required to attend college/university, it's completely optional.

The company I used to work for would get a commercial job in Oakland, rough scary parts are real. We would hire guys to hump materials for us that lived around there.
One time this one guy says : " Its getting pretty dark, ya'll should't be here after dark" We asked why and he said "Cuz you is white dummy!" LOL So we split.

I'll go with gangs or drugs or both, same as LA, Chicago, Baltimore and most big US cities. But the Democratic officials will blame it all on guns, not on gangs or drugs or poverty or unemployment or...
