Shooting at California Toys "R" US appears gang related

Dan Gifford writes that "This gunfight in a toy store between two men who killed each other is the sort of incident that gun banners can and will use to claim that handguns are a public safety hazard." CBS has this important aspect of the story:

The councilman says his question is: who takes a loaded gun into a toy store. And his answer is: "I doubt it was the casual holiday shopper." Authorities are still investigating but indicate the shooting may have been gang related.

Note that this attack occurred in California where the ability to get a concealed handgun permit is extremely difficult.

I'm not sure it's accurate to say that CCW is extremely difficult to get anywhere in California. It certainly is in major urban areas like LA or SF, but if memory serves, Riverside County (which includes Palm Desert) is relatively lax. Not that it matters, of course; the odds of either of these individuals having a CCW are virtually nil.
