Re: Shooting in Las Vegas

Yes, I wake up in the morning and look at my phone to see if anything has kicked off in the world. Sadly it has again today.

Was watching a bit of CNN earlier, but so far 50 and could be more. (Gone off of Sky News).

You just don't understand some people, they blew down the door of his hotel room to get in. They weren't saying whether they shot him or he did himself. If it wasn't him that person deserves a medal IMO.

Re: Shooting in Las Vegas

If they insist on guns in the US then fine but incidents like this where the death toll is so high could be avoided if they banned automatic guns and limited the types of guns available.

Why would anyone want a AK47 or similar type of gun unless you were involved in a war ?

True, but if people have fairly easy access to guns more will get killed.

Re: Shooting in Las Vegas

I remember when I was younger in Florida (must have been around 1999).

Went to Walmart and walking around found they had a guns and weapon section, and I remember thinking Shocked

Well that's not something you expect to see in a big UK Tesco's is it?

Re: Shooting in Las Vegas

At least 58 people have been killed and hundreds injured in a mass shooting at a Las Vegas concert.

A gunman, named as 64-year-old Nevada resident Stephen Paddock, opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel towards an open-air music festival attended by 22,000.

He killed himself as police stormed the room where 10 guns were found.

Interesting link, interesting comments. 

 

I particularly like the part where he says that he always thought having more guns was the answer until he was in the situation when he realised that they were useless.
