An eyewitness of the YouTube shooting on Tuesday said he didn’t have a gun at the time, but wished he did.

“What’s going through your mind?” a reporter asked the man.

“Well, Leslie was on my mind,” the eyewitness said, nodding to a woman nearby.

“But at the same time I knew I had to be smart. You gotta be smart. You gotta be fast.”

“I didn’t have a gun on me, but I wish I did,” he added.

It’s worth noting that California has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country in place.
