As more details emerge about the country bar shooting in California, one thing we've learned is that a big group of people inside the Borderline Bar and Grill was a group that also survived the Route 91 massacre last October in Las Vegas. 

 

This video from OnScene.TV has raw footage of the scene.  If you go to to time 11:30 you'll see Nicholas Champion talk about his experience at the scene and being at the Route 91 Festival along with 50-60 people in the bar that night.

 

Alleged gunman, Ian David Long, 28, killed 12 people before turning the gun on himself.  Long is a former Marine machine gunner and a veteran of the war in Afghanistan. Reports state that police were called to his home this spring after he became extremely agitated.  It is said that Long suffered from PTSD.
