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.
Obviously, there are many guns in the United States and many vulnerable gatherings of thousands of people. Even if police are attending to every large gathering, festival, protest, procession, nightclub, etc., offense is easier than defense.
The weapons available to the "lone wolf" are increasing. Total gun control is just unlikely to happen but even if it does people will have fair warning to stockpile, and will have 3D printer/CNC mill options available to them. Attackers will also have an easier time at adopting biological and chemical weapons as technology continues to advance.
Use the plain Internet while it lasts. It's about time to decentralize or STFU.
