Where'd They Get Their Guns?
An Analysis of the Firearms Used in High-Profile Shootings, 1963 to 2001
Date: July 18, 1984
Location: McDonald's Restaurant, San Ysidro, California
Alleged Shooter: James Oliver Huberty
People Killed: 22 (shooter killed by police)
People Injured: 19
Firearm(s): Browning P-35 Hi-Power 9mm pistol, Winchester 1200 pump-action 12-gauge shotgun, and an Israeli Military Industries 9mm Model A Carbine (Uzi)
Huberty, a self-professed hater of "children, Mexicans and the United States," told his wife, "I'm going hunting humans," then walked into a suburban McDonald's and opened fire. He shot 40 people, killing 21, before he was killed by a police sharpshooter.
All three weapons were acquired legally, however, law enforcement officers offered no further information on the weapons' sales history.
