A gunman fired upon thousands of people attending a music festival on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday night, in a brutal attack that is blamed for at least 58 deaths, police say. In the mass shooting and panic that ensued, 515 people were injured. At least one of the dead is an off-duty police officer who was attending the concert.

Editorializing: Interesting how media always emphasize ISLAMIC terrorists, but downplay domestic terrorism as psychologically disturbed individual lone-wolfs.

    It's up to Congress. Call your Senators and Congressmen. Tell them to pass the Sportsmen Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act. The SHARE Act. Very important to protect the hearing of our shooters. Some fine people are NEEDLESSLY losing their hearing, because of complicated & unnecessary regulations. @SteveScalise is a big, big supporter! 🇺🇸
