I like the fact that I live in a country (Canada) where I don’t have to worry as much about any of those gun related things.
Been working that wheel a long time, and it got rigged when La Pierre and his benefactors took over the organization. The million dollar a year “lobby boy”.
Interesting symbolism. I’ve been thinking that with Paddock just firing automatically and not aiming at distinct individual targets, that the people out there at the festival ran an equal chance of being shot whether they were hiding behind safety barriers or walking upright. I am sure a mathematician could tell me I am wrong but I feel like running or not running could still have gotten one shot – or not. Even zig-zagging would likely not have changed the odds significantly. That really makes the situation frightening.
It’s amazing to me that the morons running the NRA did not see that this was bound to happen. They have given an intelligent guy, who obviously had a very low opinion of his fellow man, the tools to inflict carnage on his fellow man. In my opinion the reason he picked the site he did was that it enabled him to inflict maximum damage on his fellow man. No other reason. Just the personification of pure evil and the gun makers and gun lobbyists and the Republicans in congress are complicit.
What is TRULY frightening is that the price on those “Bump Stocks” has skyrocketed since the shooting. People are thinking they will be banned, as even the NRA has finally admitted they need to be regulated, so some gun whackos are paying OUTRAGEOUS prices for them before they are unable to buy them any longer. “I gotta git mine before them durn libruls try to take away mah beloved guns!”
Paddocks girlfriend has told the police that he would lie in bed “moaning and screaming”. I said from the beginning that he was ill, not “sick” in the way most people have used the term lately. When a person feels awful, from an illness or perhaps an undiagnosed brain tumor, they act irrationally. Think Henry VIII, or George III. A good autopsy may give us a clue – and believe me, Mr. Paddock’s autopsy will be thorough .
Actually the top of the list needs to be suicide.
Good thing the GOP made it easier for crazy people to buy guns.
Change the croupier to Trump and the role of the dice to the third nuclear world war that he is going to involve us in as soon as he can.
He won’t have to…next, the NRA will lobby to allow nuclear warheads to be shot out of cannons and be available at gun shows…
They don’t have a slot for people killed by their 2-year-old kids who manage to get hold of mommy’s or daddy’s gun. It’s usually mommy or daddy who gets killed (fortunately?). There have been multiple such killings in Missouri.
Best bet: a tumor on the amygdala. But that only increases aggression; it doesn’t direct it. THAT has to be learned – by copying all the other shooters.
