Quote
A gunman turned a Las Vegas concert into a killing field Sunday night, murdering at least 50 people and injuring more than 200 others in the deadliest mass shooting in modern United States history.


The gunman, who fired down on the concert from a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, was killed by police.


ldean was performing his last song of the night. Initially, those in attendance said they thought the sound was firecrackers. But as the shots continued, Aldean stopped singing and some concertgoers could be heard yelling to each other to get down.

One witness told KSVN that he heard “hundreds of shots.” The gunfire was rapid and reportedly confused with firecrackers.
"It sounded like a machine gun," one vendor told Fox News. "It sounded like more than one machine gun."

Authorities said law enforcement swarmed the hotel and killed the gunman in a room on the 32nd floor. Responding  officers used an explosive device to force the door open into the room to shoot Paddock dead, law enforcement officials told Fox News.


Is it still not the time to worry about how saturated with guns America is? At what point will we finally say, "Enough mass shootings are enough. We have to take SOME action."?

Why wouldn't I be alive?

Kimmy used to live in Las Vegas, I don't know if she is still there, but I am worried about her. This one looks really, really bad.

Hello love. Not seen Kimmy in a long time. I don't think she was a country music fan though, that's all I got. Be nice to see you more often. We have a couple new members that could use a good slap from time to time.

Most Americans don't own guns. Most American gun owners own one gun. My cousins average 15 each.

Hey. No, she wasn't a country music fan. But it is festival season...who knows. It's fucking horrible. I hope he died in extreme agony. I mean guys, we are in deep deep shit; like you can't imagine kind of shit. Yet noone has opened fire in a concert just because they can. oh sorry, I know, he is 'mentally ill'. Though I am expecting good old American democracy raining down in a few years. :)

And the old ones don't? Everyone will instantly become saints, if I do any slapping. So it doesn't count, not worth it. :p

Hey, Mike. Hope you are fine.
As fine as I can be with Trump 'running' (ruining) things.  Was concerned about you since you seem to under the thumb of your own Trump.

I want to get cynical, but it won't do much good. I definitely think twice before going to any large gatherings of people. It's not just feeling paranoid. I really don't like crowded places safe or not.
