Frustrated tech worker at a law firm had this "exit plan" for revenge over sexual and social rejection -- shooting up a women's aerobics class at the LA Fitness. There were warning signs, like a prior note, and an incident where he brought an inert grenade on a Port Authority bus. Suicide. He's sort of recognized by the Incel movement (involuntary celibates).

❌ Gun Control can't help: legally owned

❌ Assault Weapon ban can't help: he used pistol
❌ No proposed Gun Control would have helped
✅ Pay attention to warning signs
✅ Improved mental health policies
✅ Better Security (more Conceal and Carry)
