Gun-controlled California: Suspects linked to Orinda Halloween gang-related shooting were prohibited possessors

Dones and Johnson: Not worried about the safety of CA citizens/AP photos

Last Halloween a shooting took place at an Airbnb rental in Orinda, CA. Five people were shot and killed. The party had been advertised on social media. Many of the guests in attendance were rival gang members.

Just earlier in October Governor Newsom signed 15 MORE gun control laws “aimed at strengthening gun control and the gun violence restraining order program.”

According to Gov. Newsom, “California is once again leading the nation in passing meaningful gun safety reforms.”

ABC 10 reported at the time that former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, co-founder of Giffords: Courage to Fight Gun Violence said, “The legislative package Governor Newsom signed today will help make California safer for all who call it home.”

Guess two felons in possession of handguns missed the memo about keeping California safer.

SF Gate reports that two suspects associated with the Orinda shooting – Domico Dones and Frederick Johnson – were arrested and charged with felon in possession of a handgun with a laser scope and ammunition (Dones) and similar charges for Johnson (who also faced an additional charge of child endangerment).

Agents with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives linked a gun used in the shooting in Orinda to other shootings in the Bay Area. More from the SF Gate report:

“It wasn’t clear whether Dones and Johnson were at the unsanctioned Oct. 31 party at an Airbnb rental house in Orinda. Authorities said they couldn’t discuss how their arrests relate to the shooting investigation because it remains active.

Dones and Johnson were not among five people who were arrested last week in connection with the shooting. Four of them were then released after Contra Costa county prosecutors said they didn’t have enough evidence to file charges.

The East Bay Times reports the fifth suspect remain held on an unrelated probation violation.

The ATF is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to arrests or convictions in the case.

Rival gang members and people armed with guns were among the more than 100 people who were at the party that was promoted on social media as an “Airbnb mansion party,” authorities said. Investigators said they believe an altercation that started in the kitchen led to gunfire and that there were multiple shooters.”

Trump critic wants to buy his childhood home so he can tear it down

Going through life with so much butt hurt can’t be healthy. Maybe this guy should consider adding a few therapy sessions to his GoFundMe page.

From NY Post: President Trump’s childhood home in Queens is a tough sell.

After being listed for $2.9 million and floated as an Airbnb rental, it was slated for a Nov. 14 auction. But the auction has been postponed indefinitely — because no one who is interested has enough dough to make a bid.

Misha Haghani, of Paramount Realty USA, tells The Post the Jamaica Estates house where Trump spent the first four years of his life is off the auction block for now so prospective buyers — which include Trump’s critics — have time to accumulate funds via crowdsourcing sites.

“We postponed the auction to give campaigns a chance to raise money,” Haghani says.

In September, LA resident David Yates launched a GoFundMe page seeking $5 million to buy the five-bedroom Tudor home — and then destroy it. So far, his “Tear Down Donald Trump’s House” page, posted on Sept. 22, has garnered $0.

The 2,000-square-foot home last sold in 2017 for $2.14 million to a Chinese investor. Before that, in 2016, it traded for $1.4 million. Haghani handled both sales. (The median home sale in the neighborhood is just under $1 million, real estate appraisers say.)

“I want to buy it and tear it down,” Yates wrote on his GoFundMe page. “Trump grew up in the house. God forbid some Trump maniac buys the house and turns it into a shrine, or a museum.” He adds that he will hire a “professional camera crew to film the entire event.”

(Also from the GoFundMe page: “I am asking you to be an active part in DEMOLISHING Donald’s legacy.”)

Haghani says he has heard from other people who are trying to raise money to buy the home and then put it toward a good cause.

“People have talked about demolishing it, creating a museum, donating it to immigrants or veterans, creating a presidential library and other things,” Haghani says. “I’d love to see something positive happen with this very unique property, like donating it to a 9/11 first responder, either that or see President Trump buy it himself.”

The house was built by his real estate developer dad, Fred, who then moved the family to a larger house behind this one. Both are far from the gilded Trump Tower penthouse triplex that the president called his primary residence until his recent move to Florida.
