Oikos has a School of Theology, Music, Nursing, and Asian medicine. It was licensed by the California Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education on May 13, 2011. It is also accredited by the state Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians. In 2011, the school applied for accreditation to teach acupuncture.
On April 2, 2012 the school was the scene of a mass shooting. Six persons were killed and 3 injured; the alleged gunman was apprehended by police several hours after the shootings occurred.

Looks like another goof with a gun . . .
. . .suspect is 43-year-old One Goh of Oakland.
The suspect used a .45-caliber handgun, spraying a classroom with gunfire and firing additional shots as he ran out, said the source, who did not wish to be identified because the investigation is ongoing.
Goh had been a nursing student at Oikos University, located at 7850 Edgewater Road in East Oakland, and there was some kind of dispute that may have resulted in him getting kicked out of at least one class, the source said.
Why not "criminal", or "murderer"? Heck, you could even throw in an "alleged".
It just sounds like: "Well that durn Bob went a killed a few more folks, what a goof!". Har har, yuk yuk.
Are those who drive over pedestrians "goofs in a car"?
It's looking more and more like One Goh was a a goof with a gun. It's being reported that he was a U.S. citizen, had not committed any violent crimes, and had purchased a gun, possibly legally. If all this is true, that makes him one of us.
Even if Goh is not charged with or is convicted of a crime, he can still be accurately categorized as A goof with a gun. For example, George Zimmerman, even though his case has not been finalized yet, is clearly a goof with a gun. Another example is Tigh Croff. He is a goof with a gun, too. There are many others.
The key is whether the GWAG seriously and adversely affects the reputation and the rights of normal law-abiding gun owners/carriers.
P.S. I think your "goof in a car" idea is kind of a good start.
Goh is not like me, not at all. He didn't do some silly thing that was "... stupid, unsafe, idiotic, needlessly dangerous or even criminal..."
He murdered people.
To say that he's "just like one of us" is to say that "we're just like him, only one step away from doing something stupid, unsafe, idiotic, or even criminal."
It's saying we're just one step away from being murderers.
Worse, you said he is one of us. *spits*

Goe was a lawful gun owner. Passed the background check.
He is a standard All-American pro-gun advocate/gun owner. Just like we all are.
Then Goh blew up and tried to use the wrong tool to fix some problems. He became, instantly, a goof with a gun. (He'll assuredly get tried and convicted, too.)
Goh's actions bring disrepute upon the rest of us All-American pro-gun advocates and gun owners.
Other examples of persons who can best be described as a goof with a gun are George Zimmerman, Yalanda Parrish, Tigh Croff , Wayne Derkotch and anty506, one of our very very own.
Pity that the rest of us have to take the heat for what those folks have done. But that's the deal. We gotta stick together, I guess. Sometimes we even try to defend these GWAGs. Why, I never can understand.
Man, how on Earth did this happen? How can guns get into "Gun Free Zones"? I'm sure it was just a mistake...maybe there weren't enough signs for him to see. Perhaps they were too small? We should make them twice as big and glow in the dark, just in case these people come at night time. THAT'LL FIX IT FOR SURE.
Support us college students who live in Defense-free zones. Please...or at least "like" Students for Concealed Carry on Facebook.
P.S. our national empty holster protest was this week. How sad is it that this happened on the first day of our protesting?
