Why US Gov does nothing about Mass Shootings in USA such as Las Vegas?

There has been another mass shooting in USA, this time in Vegas where an astonishing 59 Americans were Killed and 500+ injured! And there are such mass shootings in USA one after another, such as Sandy Hook massacre 27 Americans Killed, Orlando 49 Killed, etc., but US Government and Politicians do nothing to stop these massacres! Why is that? As a father, husband, and a Christian I find this lack of action by US Government to stop these massacre of American People to be astounding! On that note, here in UK we had a Mass shooting more than 20 Years ago, Dunblane March 1996 where a gunman killed 18. Right after we passed strict Gun laws, as a result there have been almost no mass shootings in UK since, why cant USA Government (People) do same? Answer is of course NRA that spend $30-Mill for Trump election. So will US Government (Politicians) do nothing again? Or will they brand NRA a Terrorist Organization and confiscate its assets as they (rightly) do so when a Muslim sounding Organization supports killing of American People.

I think they don't care about it. The government wants to receive more taxes from weapon selling.

Xman, I agree. By now it should be obvious US Government does not give a Flying SQUAT about American People. Unless of course that American is Killed by a guy with a Muslim name. Then Goooolly, Republicans Democrats and Big Media will go Hog wild foaming out of their Mouth calling for action and that US Government must put an end to these "Terrorists". Resulting on our Lives further wasted on War after War, however when Americans are slaughtered domestically as in Vegas, they do NOTHING.

sarah, I totally agree with you. Also with MMer that this Republi-CONS and Demo-RATS and the Wall Street Media Machinery that controls these right-wing lying Machines, only care about: "POWER or MONEY" and certainly not the American People. And as you noted the only time they care about American People is if a Mooslem or North Korean Kills an American, then they will go all GONG Ho calling for Government action. Another example of which is the state of Healthcare in USA. Where 50-Million+

Americans either have NO Healthcare or affordable Healthcare, unlike other developed Nations in the World whom all have Universal Socialized Healthcare, all so that Wall Street can make an EXTRA $1-Trillion per Year off of Healthcare in USA, damn be how many Millions of Americans this will Kill and Bankrupt per Year.

Here is a sampling of nightmare Wall Street based Healthcare is:

As long as Donald Trump and the GOP are in power, don't expect anything to change anytime soon.

Hopefully, the Democrats will take back control of Congress in next year's midterm congressional election. If the GOP retains control, we are going to be in even worse shape, I'm afraid.

So it has been almost 2 Weeks since 59 Americans were Murdered in Vegas as if their lives meant less than a Cock Roach, and 500+ were badly injured, many handicapped for life, and Republicans say do NOTHING and Democrats have done nothing and our so called Media ranging from Fox said: "Can we not politicize this tragic event now" to ABC, CNN & MSNBC not even ONCE telling American People: "look they passed strict Gun control in UK, Australia 20 Years ago and have had ZERO mass shootings in 20 Years", so this is what we must do to stop this daily massacre of American People. No NONE of them said these facts. Instead what has our Psychopath President Trump done since this massacre of 59 Americans in Vegas?
1- By executive order has made the un-affordable ACA even worst, hence will KILL 10s of 1000s of Americans due to no healthcare
2- Threatened NK with Nuclear Genocide
3- Decertified Iran deal which will make the World much dangerous place
etc. NOTHING or EVIL.

When will American People rise against this EVIL? How many more Americans must be slaughtered like in Vegas, Orlando, etc. or die due to lack of healthcare, for American People to rise up and say Enough is Enough!

Well I would not hold my breath that our Government will do anything to reduce Mass shooting of American People. I mean for goodness sake they did not do a thing after Sandy Hook shooting where 20 of those murdered were Children. So it should be obvious to all Americans by now that our Gov, that is GOP and Dems, do not give a squat about us. Except if an American is killed by a Muslim, then Trump, GOP, Democrats & War Machinery goes into hyper drive calling for immediate "politicizing". Sick :(

Sarah,

You will probably notice that the talk about gun control legislation, which became quite prevalent right after the Las Vegas shooting, has now degenerated into a whisper. The same thing happened after Sandy Hook.

It seems that legislators are only interested in gun control legislation right after a tragedy. It would make so much more sense if they actually enacted some type of gun control legislation as a preventative measure.

All we have heard since this horrible massacre was on taking the guns away from the citizens. The Second Amendment was put in place to protect the citizens of this great nation and gift that God gave us, the United States of America.
We cannot blame the guns or the government for what the violent people who can only answer somebody through violence. We must look at ourselves, the adults, who do not control our tempers, attitudes, and positive beliefs in front children. When children act out as we had done then some adults, parents, family members will laugh and say they are just children. Violent behavior, disrespect, and rudeness must be curtailed at a young age and never excused no matter the occasion.
Above all we the adults must set the standards and footsteps that the children are sure to follow. For if we do not then we could end up like many communistic countries that control the people.

What has the right-wing Psycho Media such as Fox has done to you People!

1st, the question is how can we stop these Mass Shootings in USA? Answer is do what UK, Australia, etc. did, which is pass strict Gun controls, as a result of which they have not had a Mass Shooting in almost 20 YEARS!
What part of ZERO Mass shootings in UK, Australia, etc. over 20 YEARS dont you get or like?

2nd, are you calling UK, Australia, etc. which have strict Gun controls to be "communistic countries"?

Shooting in almost 20 YEARS, then that would have of course been the right thing todo. But we have NOT. Which is again a proof of what a right-wing lying brain washing Media entire Wall Street based Media are.

So why is it and how is it, that People like you, and our so called leaders such as Trump, Republicans & Democrats are NOT actually stating these facts that if we had passed strict Gun controls as they have in Uber Democracies of UK, Australia, etc. these Mass Shootings will STOP. That

these 58 who were KILLED in Vegas, Sandy Hook massacre 27 Americans Killed, Orlando 49 Killed, etc. along with 30,000+ Americans who are killed per Year due to our insane Gun laws would be alive. Because our Government, that is Trump/Obama Republicans & Democrats do not give a SQUAT about US. Oh they only care about US, if an American is Killed by a MoosLem, then Trump/Obama Republicans & Democrats call for immediate Government action, aka multi Trillion Wars.

imtee,

It's time that we took a second look at the Second Amendment, and realize that it is probably obsolescent by now and needs to be revisited. I will even propose that we redraft the Second Amendment so that it is more relevant to today.

The provisions of the Second Amendment may have been appropriate back in the 1700s, when the US Constitution was drafted, but for today's society I think the entire subject about guns needs to be revisited and the Second Amendment be amended to fit 2017.

Wheeler, the issue is not just the "Second Amendment", which is the SCAM that Republicans, aka right-wing Cabal that controls US, been playing on US. The main issue is the lives of 10s of 1000s of Americans that we would be saving per year, by having sensible Gun laws as they have in UK, Australia, etc.. So it is really astonishing that you have Republicans and Democrats who say: "I am for 2nd Amendment", which means I am for KILLING the 59 in Vegas, 49 in Orlando, etc. 30,000+ Americans

KILLED per Year due to insane Gun laws we have. Now if you want to play the game that lets talk only about "Second Amendment" and not the 10s of 1000s of Americans that are being Killed per Year due to resulting insane Gun laws. Then lets state that "Second Amendment" says "right of People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed", this was written when People bear Arms means having a Musket. So people buying Guns now should be limited to buying a Musket. Which means shooter in Vegas

could have at best killed 2 people. Now, if Republicans come and say No, "bear Arms" means Arms of Today's World and not Arms of 1791, then why cant someone today bear: Machine Guns, Bazookas, Grenade Launchers, Shoulder fired anti aircraft missiles, etc..

So anyway that you logically look at this issue, like any other issues from Healthcare to this, Republicans, aka right-wing Medias, position, does not hold water. And only by saying non-sense can they defend the current Gun laws we have.

Reporter,

Thank you for your clarification. You have a better handle on the situation than I do.

I agree with you that the Second Amendment is probably not the problem although it could be better written to be more suitable to 2017.

The problem is the way the Second Amendment has been twisted and perverted to suit the needs of the right-wing gunslingers and pro-gun lobbyists. The Second Amendment has been abused, just like much of our Constitution, to brainwash citizens into believing lies.

Reporter, this is the best answer I have read to the rubbish by Republicans/Trump/Right-wing Media in regard to their:

"I am for Second Amendment"

So yes, you are damn right about this. That is either what about the 59 Americans killed in Vegas as 30,000 Americans killed per Year due to the insane Gun laws we have, which is due to them being blocking sensible Gun laws because they are for "Second Amendment", or as you noted if " Second Amendment" gives us rights to own any Arms we want, then

2000 years ago, GOD sent us a very competent messenger with a revolutionary philosophy. His name was JESUS
AND HIS REVOLUTIONARY PHILOSOPHY WAS: " Love your neighbor as you love yourself." The vast majority of JEWS, AND GENTILES, REJECTED HIS PHILOSOPHY AS "TOTALLY UNWORKABLE".
As a consequence, we have many WORLD LEADERS, AND PRESIDENTS, TALKING ABOUT THE FORTHCOMING THIRD WORLD WAR, AND THE OBLITERATION OF BILLIONS OF INNOCENT MEN, WOMEN, CHILDREN, AND BABIES.

It would be real nice if you fundamentalist Christians would stop thumping on the Bible for a few minutes and joined the real world. What happened 2000 years ago is irrelevant to today's society, despite the fact that you Christians cling to the Bible and use it for an answer to every problem that comes up.

Believe it or not, most people actually live in 2017 and not in some type of apocalyptic nightmare like many Christians, or people who pretend to be Christians.

Maybe those of you who do not understand the American ways and how the citizens refuse to be the government's puppet need to go to Cuba or China. There they tell their people what they can and cannot do. Here we the people have freedoms are able to do most of what we wish, such as elect those who will protect this nation and its citizens.

I had a good friend who used to live in Cuba until her death. She always told me that the healthcare in Cuba was far superior to anything in the United States. Cuba has always exported doctors and other medical professionals to other countries as a display of their goodwill towards others.

Sometimes, I wish I could go to Cuba. Down there, I doubt if I would have to be prey for the HMOs and big Pharma, as I am here. Also, as a socialist, I would probably have more in common down there.

"you who do not understand the American ways",
"Why do all of you blame the God fearing people who obey the U.S.A. laws", etc.

And of course the same goes for the state of Healthcare in USA, and all other that is wrong with USA. Answer to which is a bunch of Wall Street Billionaires, a bunch of True Enemy within, whom have funded and are funding the US Media being the right-wing lying Machine that it is, so that American People are not told the Truth in regard to any issues of importance, resulting in USA having one mass shooting after another, worst Healthcare in the World, engaged in War after War.

You ask: "Why US Gov does nothing about Mass Shootings in USA such as Las Vegas". Because US Gov, which means Republicans, Democrats and Wall Street Media/Money, do not give a SQUAT about American People. You can see that from state of healthcare in USA to one Mass shooting after another, where of course they know that Gun control works as per case of Australia where they enacted it 20 YEARS AGO and have had ZERO Mass shootings since. Astonishingly, this Video from about 10 Years ago lays these facts bare.

Reporter,

As long as the Trump administration is in place, as well as the GOP and Democratic Party control of the legislative branch, we can expect absolutely nothing. Change will only happen when the American people come together to change things for the better.

As long as we embrace the capitalist" anything for a buck" system, lobbyists from the NRA and other groups will continue to be the "shadow government" of the United States.

Wheeler61, very True. It is high time We the People Wake UP to SCAM that these Republicans, Democrats and above all Wall Street Billionaire Cabal/Media that controls these 2 Parties have been playing on US. As a result of which USA is not a Nation anymore, but an AbomiNation, as per:
1- State of Healthcare in this country, where all developed Nations have Universal Socialized Healthcare but US,
2- State of Guns in thus country,
etc.

Wheeler. That is nice words. But how are We the people to change anything when those who don't want things changed for better, who are profiting from misery of American people, that is the Wall Street Billionares and MIC, have access to Trillions of Dollars, hence they control the entire Media from ABC to Cnn to MSNBC to psychos on Fox to Hollywood to Google, etc. resulting in Obama being bigger War monger than Bush to Trump the Fake president. How?

Wheeler, Barista is right on. The problem with USA, as a result of which "We the People" ARE NOT bringing any changes about, is that US Media is a right-wing lying Machine. The absolute proof of which is MSNBC, so called Liberal Media, which in fact is a KEY part of the right-wing lying War-Mongering Wall Street Media machine: from Healthcare in US to War after War after War that US is engaged in, etc.

For mountain of proof:

Reporter,

I agree with both of you 100%, but as long as our so-called "leaders" continue pandering to the military-industrial complex, nothing is going to change until we people start voting smarter and electing suitable people to office. If we did so, we would not let half of the idiots we currently elect. We really need to start being smarter when we vote and not be fooled by trivial bullshit that actually means nothing, or says anything about who the candidate really is and what they represe

Wheeler61 & Reporter, you guys are right. US Media is a right-wing lying Machine, proof of which are:

1- State of Healthcare in US, where all developed Nations have Universal Socialized Healthcare, but USA. And Trump is making the un-affordable garbage that was ACA even worse with TrumpCare

2- State of Gun killing of American People, where strict Gun laws as they have in UK, Australia, etc. would stop the Death of 30,000 Americans per Year, but they are doing nothing about it

etc.

So yes: "nothing is going to change until we the people start voting smarter and electing suitable people to office"

but the problem is that with the exception of the People who are getting their information from this non-Wall Street based Anoox, 99.99% of Americans are getting their information, aka Fake News, from the Wall Street based right-wing Media, which means are hopelessly brain washed to bring about real change. I am so sad about what has happened to US and see no way out :(

Sarah,

I am also sad about this and I agree that you have a good handle on the situation. However, I prefer to think that those of us who do not read these right-wing propaganda machines that you mentioned, will be able to get through to enough people that it will make a difference. If we can change a few minds, it will be a good start.

Republicans have made a blood pact with the NRA, and that has prevented us from making any progress. Individual Americans are going to have to awaken to the reality that our gun hoarding has become a hysteria and we are actually safer as a country with fewer weapons, rather than with more of them. Let's hope hundreds more don't have to die before we finally do.

Very True. But lets not forget Democrats are also part of problem. Just think of how many Mass Shootings there where during Obama era and they enacted NO Gun control either. So it is safe to say both Republicans and Democrats are under the control of Big Gun makers, just as they are under the control of Big Pharma and insurance and that is why we do not even have something as basic as Government universal healthcare that 100% of all Developed Nations have including Israel BELOVED of rightwing

You are right about needing to declare NRA a terrorist organization. After all ISIS has killed 3 Americans and for that they were rightly so declared a Terrorist group. NRA just killed 59 Americans in Vegas, killed 49 in Orlando, etc. so they and their supporters should all be declared as Terror groups and all good people of the US and the World should work to destroy this Terror group and its supporters.

Barista, well said. How in GODs name is ISIS a Terrorist group for Killing 3 Americans, and NRA and GOP are not who are directly responsible for insane Gun laws in USA that just KILLED 59 Americans in Las Vegas, as are Killing 30,000+ Americans per Year due to these insane Gun laws. Also, one can apply same Crimes against American People to Obama Democrats. Great related about this on BBC:

I agree with you both. Only way forward is to declare NRA and its supporters to be Terrorist. Which should be easy to do, since they are responsible for killing more Americans per typical Week, such as the 59 beautiful lives taken away in Las Vegas, since obviously if US has sensible Gun laws this crazy guy would not have been able to Kill 59 people from his Hotel room. By the way this is also going to hurt the Vegas economy alot, which means countless loosing their Job and more suffering :(

rather than suggesting such draconian actions as "declare NRA and its supporters to be Terrorist", which of course not going to happen since Republicans are 100% for NRA which would mean declaring them "Terrorist" too, and major Media such as Fox are 100% for NRA which would mean declaring them "Terrorist" too, which of course not gonna happen. Cant we just all come together and instead suggest real actions to make sure tragedies such as this Las Vegas massacre will not happen again.

GoldCoast,

I agree with you! The NRA, GOP, or any other organization is going to be declared a terrorist organization. However, I do believe the NRA is an out-of-control lobby group for the gun industry.

Believe it or not, back years ago, the NRA actually was an organization that advocated for gun safety for the average person. Over the years, they have become the lobby group for Smith & Wesson, Winchester, Ruger, and other gun manufacturers.

Gun control legislation has become more necessary.

Wheeler61, you meant to say that "NRA, GOP, or any other organization is NOT going to be declared a terrorist organization", since if they are, as they should be since they are 1000 times more threat to Americans than ISIS, then that would be great news for US. Actually to say they are 1000 times more threat than ISIS to US is an understatement, since ISIS has Killed 3 Americans in Total and GOP/NRA are killing about 100,000 Americans per Year due to state of Healthcare and Guns in this country

World_Traveler,

Thank you very much for correcting me. I didn't mean to say NOT.

Unfortunately, the American Society seems to adhere to the "cowboy mentality" that I referred to in another post.

Collecting campaign contributions means more to the politicians who control this country than they do about the quality of life of its citizens. They have clearly displayed this on a number of occasions. Their negligence to the well-being of the American people is criminal.
