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.

    If guns were forbidden, anyone who found out he had guns could report him to the police. When guns are outlawed, someone who has a gun is an outlaw.

    No argument with you there, but people who live where the police response is slow may need them the defend themselves from humans and other animals.
