    So when are we going to say enough is enough and pass some sensible laws?

    Ummm...just a thought. Why don't we wait and see what kind of gun the guy used, where he bought it from, what his motive was, etc. BEFORE making dumb posts?

    For example, if he had an automatic weapon, they are already illegal.

    You hope Las Vegas was a false flag attack. Like...what does that even mean? Are you implying that it might be fake?

    By and large, proponents of "gun control" are the same people who are for abortion: let that sink in a few seconds.
    Do you really think abortion-lovers want all guns confiscated because they really care about innocent lives? And do you doubt anyone that unscrupulous would be devious enough to stage fake shootings to further their agenda? Watch the video, bro. He's smiling calmly and happily until he starts trying to work-up a look of "grief". No tears either. I would be a blubbering mess if one of my kids had just been shot to death, and most other people would too.

    Would YOU rather it was real? I wouldn't.

    I agree. We should make murder illegal. We should make shooting into a crowd illegal! That would have stopped it.

    Of all the thoughts I've had today on this event, considering whether or not it did in fact happen was never one of them.

    Not even in the ballpark with A1 speed. The A2 with the heavy bolt carrier and heavy buffer modification is still way faster than bump fire/slideefire.

    Already have pass multiply gun laws, and those who plan to do evil with them will always find ways to get them!
    Should we outlaw/restrict all autos, because some drunk drivers use them to kill others?

    Awful, awful, took a nap and was jolted awake by a nightmare (napmare?).
    Bad bad day for America. It wasn't like these folks were gambling away, this was a Country Western concert.

    Children were there!? What kind of psychopath was this!!?
    IMO this is possibly from demonic influence.

    i agree that more laws won't do a thing.

    How many laws did this crazed individual already break in this execution of this mass murder?
    What? 6 more, 60, 600? Won't matter

    Taking away guns from lawful citizens is not sensible. You try to confiscate some guns and you will truly see a bloodbath.

    Hi guys, this is obviously a very tough day for the country, and as Christians, we have to be lights to the world. I'm a YouTuber trying to spread greater humanization and love, which we really need especially now. I just did a video on this tragedy, and would appreciate the views and generally spreading around the work I'm trying to do through this channel.



    Thank you so much. Keep up the prayers and please be loving toward each other and everyone (1 Thessalonians 5:15).

    With the wealth that this guy apparently had (multiple homes and planes), he could have bought a pile of legal NFA machine guns. $15,000 and up for a legal, full auto M16 might be enough to keep the average person out of the market, but not him.

    I was thinking bumpfire stock or one of those hand crank mechanisms, too, but those differing rates of fire could be the result of multiple arms and multiple brands of ammo.

    A collectors license would most likely cover those weapons.

    IRRC, a curio and relics license doesn't cover NFA items e.g. fully automatic firearms. NFA firearms require their own licenses.
