And again we are confronted with another slaughter:
A lone gunman released a rapid-fire barrage of bullets on an outdoor country music festival in Las Vegas Sunday night, killing at least 50 people and injuring more than 400 others, police said, in the worst mass shooting in modern American history.
[Editor’s note: As of 08:42 a.m., Pacific, 58 people are dead and 515 wounded.]
There’s so much to be said about this, the uniquely American aspect of our sociopaths going hunting on their fellow citizens, and they way that everyone tsk-tsks and says that now is not the time to talk about gun control. Now is never the time to talk about anything.
Gun control is a legitimate issue, but for the Dems already raising it after Las Vegas massacre, could we just have a day before plunging in

And for fck’s sake, don’t tell me that if only everyone had been armed to the teeth… this madman was
raining death using his Second Amendment rights from 32 floors above with a machine gun (amongst other automatic weapons) upon people attending a country music concert two blocks away. Who was gonna take him out? Room service?
Each hollow thoughts and prayers tweet from equally hollow politicians should be followed by whatever the blood money that the NRA donated to said politician.

[Editor’s Note: the always excellent @igorvolsky on Twitter reports after every single mass gun shooting how much NRA blood money each thoughts-and-prayers politician has taken.]
My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting. God bless you!

The NRA is a terrorist organization. It needs to be treated as such. Politicians who take the NRA blood money need to go on a watch list. They are literally enemies of the people.
I’ve seen suggestions that all outdoor venues should be cancelled because no one is safe, but that seems like admitting that the gun-toting fiends and murderers have more rights than music lovers. We would bend our culture to protect gun fetishists? That’s nuts.
No, we need some gun restrictions and regulations.
I’m not King of the Forest, but if I were I would ban all guns and all bullets. No Hunting, no sportsman shooting, nothing. I’ve had it. I don’t care what anyone has to say on the topic.
Go fck yourselves, Ammosexuals, and Gundamentalists: I hope for you everything that you hope for me.
