    When it came to police calls, the unpaved rural road where Tehama County gunman Kevin Janson Neal lived was a busy place. The Tehama Sheriff’s Department was called to Neal’s remote neighborhood 21 times in the past year to deal with disputes between Neal, his wife and their neighbors, according to documents released Tuesday by the department. The incident reports, released to The Sacramento Bee in response to a Public Records Act request, depict a feud in rural Rancho Tehama Reserve that was escalating out of control. Neal and his wife, the former Barbara Anne Glisan, initiated seven calls themselves,...

Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said authorities responded to neighbors’ calls several times, but the 44-year-old Neal wouldn’t open the door, so they left. “He was...

    Despite California laws designed to keep firearms away from troubled people, this assailant still got his guns. The red flags were flying all over the place. Let’s review: crazy guy, history of wreaking violence on others, and multiple weapons at his disposal in a state with the toughest gun laws in the nation. It doesn’t quite add up. So what about that California law banning certain weapons from certain people who’ve had run-ins with authorities? It’s called APPS for short, or the Armed and Prohibited Persons System, and it’s designed to allow California law-enforcement officials to automatically track firearm owners...
