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.

You had your answer to this question at further display when Trump appeared at the NRA meeting in Dallas the other day, and Championed the insane state of Gun laws in USA, rather than having been impeached by now for not having done anything to Stop the slaughter of American People due to these insane Gun laws, from 59 Americans massacred in Vegas to 17 students massacred in Parkland. And he did it with one lie after another, such as referring to mass shooting in France, 2 Years ago, when France has 0.1% of Murders, repeat France has 0.1% of Murders, by Guns compared to USA with insane Gun laws. Enjoy these True Enemies within:

Yes, it is really astonishing demonstration of how Trump and the Wall Street right-wing Cabal that make this sociopath possible, do not give a SQUAT about American People. I mean he mentioned one of the 2 mass shootings in France which they have had in 20 Years, as an argument against sensible Gun controls, but the slime bag did not mention the average of mass shooting per Month that we have in USA from Colombine, to Sandy Hook, to Aurora, to Vegas to Park land, or that more Americans were

dead in Chicago alone over the last year than were shot dead in entire France over the last 5 Years, including those shot is the mass shooting that he referred to. Really in any other Country people such as Trump/Pence/NRA that support one mass shooting of American people after another, would be prosecuted for Treason, in this Upside down country we have thanks to ultra right-wing Media, these f***s call themselves "Patriots"!

Faxonly,

This country has needed some type of sensible gun control for many years. People of this country need to get over our "cowboy" attitude, and realize that this country is not the old West.

We all need to start behaving like civilized people instead of bloodthirsty animals.

Donald Trump, and his minions, allow themselves to be at the beck and call of the National Rifle Association (NRA). Most politicians in this country have sold out to the gun lobby.

If we simply applied the existing law only the law-abiding would own guns. The left-wing radicals and their media vilify the good guy and protect the criminals.
It is against federal law to make a false statement on a form for a gun purchase. If bleeding heart liberals would stop weakening the law most of the mass shootings would never have happened.

Thom,

The shootings happened because right-wingers and the NRA have allowed assault weapons to be sold, in the first place.

The NRA has been fighting against background checks for years. If you don't have anything to hide, then why fight background checks?

Existing gun laws haven't done a damn thing, and you know it.

Wheeler ANY semi-automatic rifle available to the civilian population, of the U.S., FOR OVER A CENTURY has the same rate of fire as the AR-15 or AK-47 - NO DIFFERENCE.
NO assault weapons are sold to ANY individual, without a special license and exhaustive background check, in the U.S.
Making a false statement on the purchase documentation for a firearm is a felony and prison is the prescribed punishment. Liberal activist judges and lawyers keep the bad guys on the streets.

Conservatives are America's "law and order" advocates. WE WANT THESE PEOPLE TO BE IN PRISON, FOR THE FALSE APPLICATION, BEFORE THEY MAKE THE PURCHASE.
It is the bleeding heart liberals from the corrupt and criminal, corporate left-wing who constantly impede the process. Please, try to keep up, on his issue.
IT ISN'T GUNS OR THE NRA!

Wheeler, did I again use big words or type too fast for you?
WE DO NOT NEED ANY FURTHER GUN CONTROL LAWS.
The NRA is a Second Amendment group that knows and understands this.
If every person, who falsely applied to purchase a gun was prosecuted for that felony, they would end up in prison and as a felon NEVER BE ABLE TO TOUCH A GUN AGAIN.
It is the courts who are causing the problem. As I said, try to keep up.

If you are one of the morons, who vote Democrat, your corrupt party wants ALL felons to get back their right to vote AND own a gun.
The Democrats will do anything to get votes, including re-arm convicted felons. You left-wingers complain about the Republicans, while you vote against them, to INCREASE MURDER RATES AND GET MORE CHILDREN SHOT.

It's amazing the way you always get things the opposite of what they actually are. The Democrats want background checks, which would prevent any convicted felon from illegally possessing a firearm.

It's hard to believe that you even believe your own b***.

Nopower, maybe you should do something about the murder rate in London before sticking your nose in our business. Even without guns, the murder rate, the home invasion rate, etc in YOUR backyard is HORRIBLE. Clean up YOUR own city first BEFORE complaining about our our problems.

I think the FIRST place you should start is by banning KNIVES of ALL types since they seem to be the weapon of choice in London.

Democide is murder of any person or people by their government, including genocide, politicide and mass murder". Government-sponsored large-scale killings for racial or political during the 20th century is estimated at 262 million.

Nazi gun laws of 1938 specifically banned Jewish persons from obtaining a license to manufacture firearms or ammunition. Approximately eight months after enacting the 1938 Nazi gun laws, Hitler imposed regulations prohibiting Jewish persons from possessing any dangerous weapons, including firearms.

Hitler had it in for the Jews, so he first disarmed them before carrying out his murderous campaign them. And unable to resist, millions died.

The founders of our country understood the potential dangers of any government, and crafted the 2nd Amendment to permit individual citizens to protect themselves from their government. What tool would you prefer to have at your disposal to defend your family against our government, perhaps a pocket knife. ]

Thank you for proving YET again what UTTER lunatics so many American People have become in USA thanks to the crap that pours of Wall Street based right-wing Media by saying such crap. After all you F***G Moron, strict Gun laws/bans have been put into place by the Conservative parties in UK, Australia, etc. as a result of which they have had ZERO Mass shooting in 20 Years.

So are you calling the Conservative parties in UK, Australia, etc. to be Nazi Hitler?

You pinheads have no "poin", Flacidly. Once again you have made yourself the poster child of the corrupt left-wing. Your combination of ignorance and false knowledge leaves you uniquely unprepared to comment on any subject, but most especially medical health, gun rights, conservatism and mass shootings.
Why not apply your "talents" to something you can actually handle, like comic book reviews or Sasquatch population estimates?

The first thing you Nazis, Klansmen, Democrats or communists do is shift any blame onto the good guys, of which I am one. I have lived my life as a pro-Constitutional, pro-American conservative.

Very telling that this Republican lunatic, did NOT answer the question:

For they have all supported and enacted their strict Gun bans in UK, Australia,

So you see the fact that Republicans and right-wing Media in USA, cannot answer this question, the fact that their answer to everything is Nazi Hitler Nazi Hitler, is just damning proof of what lunatics Trump Republicans are and how Fox, etc. have made them so.

Flacidly, you didn't ask me any question, you imbecile. You were responding to S.E. Since you have trouble figuring these things out, I will answer.
NO what is known as a conservative in Europe is what we call a liberal here, which amounts to a left-wing mix of both communist and Nazi ideas.
The NHS, for instance, was a Nazi scheme to deprive Jews and others of health care at the beginning of Hitler's "final solution". True to form, Jews are still the objects of scorn all over...

As usual, you do the usual conservative thing and attempt to distract people from your real agenda, which is, to turn the United States into some kind of fascist state where everyone is allowed to be a gunslinger.

You always identify me as something that I'm not. I'm a progressive member of the Green party who supports Sen. Bernie Sanders. You would also think that I am an anti-capitalist and socialist. Get it right, jack-off!

As usual, you have got it backwards. Big surprise!

Conservative business owners only do not discriminate because it is against the law to discriminate. If conservatives had their way, these antidiscrimination laws would not exist because conservatives, like yourself, always fight against any type of regulation, blaming it on "the nanny state".

Liberal business owners, on the other hand, already know that discrimination against anyone is wrong.

Over the past several months, I have come to realize that Thom doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground. He is just another propaganda machine, regurgitating whatever he sees on Breitbart or Fox news.

He, like most right-wingers, have no real brains of their own. In some ways, I suppose we should all feel sorry for them because they are nothing more than robots.

Since skinheads are usually white supremacist, you are much better suited to attend one of their meetings that I am. Remember, you're the right wing racist in the group. Please don't forget your place.

Being a member of the Green party who supports Bernie Sanders is certainly not an un-American admission no matter how much you stretch your already twisted mind.

The major point I do have is that right-wing racist like you should not be allowed here.

Wheeler, as a former anti-segregation protester in the South, under Eisenhower and probably the only one of that era still alive, I know racists very well and you fit the mold exactly.
If I had any problem, with race, I wouldn't have lived in Jamaica for over a decade or be in a mixed race marriage for just under 49 years.
You left-wing racists don't have any place freely walking the streets of America. Moreover that you vote communist-lite isn't exactly patrioic or anything to brag about.

You would be surprised (or appalled) how many right-wingers like Thom do this. They actually try to seal the argument that Adolf Hitler was a lefty. They do the same thing about Mussolini.

Personally, I wrote off Thom as being psychotic, not to mention sociopathic, a long time ago. Sometimes, it's best to just leave crazy people alone, especially those with Internet access.

Both were totalitarian, thus left-wing philosophies. You keep forgetting that the universally accepted political puts total control by the government at the extreme left, anarchy at the extreme right and republicanism at the center.
Walker, why are you and the others, having such difficulty admitting your extremist views?

Thom,

For a minute, I actually thought you were going to give me a credible source. I don't consider a website that touts Ayn Rand and her philosophy of "objectivism" as a credible source.

The article you sent was under a section called, Ayn Rand, and her philosophy of objectivism.

If you actually believe this type of b***, that really explains a lot about how you come to some of the off-base conclusions you espouse like they were the gospel.

Thom,

The whole website was primarily centered around the teachings of Ayn Rand and her philosophy of objectivism. There is no way that you can call the credible website, because it doesn't even try to be neutral.

No matter, because you're wrong about the political spectrum. Nazis and fascists are considered to be far right, not left-wing as you claim.

Wheeler, at least admit that your ignorance is self-imposed. The first site is for a definition only the second is Dinesh d'Souza for an explanation.
The left-wing took over the Democrat Party totally by 1971, but for years before, they tried to legitimize themselves by shifting the blame of racism and segregation to the Republican opposition. As they slid further left they tried to make it look as if the Republicans instead moved to the right. It doesn't take a lofty intellect to understand...

...that any party that defends a country's constitution is and can only be centrist. But apparently, you are blind to the obvious.
You read Hitler explain what his party was, while Mussolini made government a religion and d'Souza explained both very well.
I don't take you for a moron, so just admit that you don't care that the left spawned all of the worst sociopolitical scourges that ever hit the planet. Just stop with the lies about the Republicans, the only honorable political party we have.

Thom,

I will not admit to anything that isn't true. Most Republicans, who were opponents of Barack Obama were racist, although they hid it very well.

A few moderate Republicans, who are at sometimes willing to be bipartisan, have some sense of honor, but most Republicans would not even define the word honor if you held a gun to their heads.

If they had any honor, they wouldn't try so hard to cut social programs that help poor people as much as they do. Honorable people don't try to starve us.

Mmerlinn,

Perhaps I would, if there were more employment opportunities for 62-year-old disabled man, in a wheelchair, and on a ventilator. My SMA (spinal muscle atrophy) has always made it difficult me and others like me to work.

If your definition of "pigging out" is living off of $1148 per month, I guess I fit that definition. However, in the real world (something which you are not part of), $1148 per month doesn't go very far.

$1148 does not go far at all, but I live on LESS than that. Of course, though I am much older than you, I can still outwork most twenty-somethings, so have opportunities to work that do not exist for anyone with disabilities.

That said, there must be things you can do to earn more money. Like writing? You write here. Why not find a way to sell that service to someone?

Wheeler, you ALWAYS "miss" the point. Republicans did not vote against 0bama on the basis of race. Republicans have always had black politicians (who actually faced racist attacks from Democrats).
0bama didn't get the Republican vote because he had no experience, espoused leftist, anti-American, racist views, had long-term relationships with domestic terrorists and hid his shady past.
Republicans will seldom be bipartisan when the other side wants to break the law or undermine the Constitution.

Because Trump Republican lunatics, aka Israeli agents, brain washed by right-wing Media such as Fox, CNBC, Wall Street Journal, etc. do not give a squat about American People. And you have had further reminders of this with Massacres of American People in Texas, Parkland Fl, etc.. So the real questions are:

1- How is it that the US Military does not defend the American People from these Enemies within, since they are sworn to "Defend US from Foreign and Domestic Enemies.." and far more American People from Vegas to Parkland Fl are being killed by insane policies of Trump Republican lunatics than ISIS has killed and ISIS is considered a great enemy!

2- Why arent American People in the street by 10s of Millions bringing these enemies within to justice?

Well there has been another mass shooting in USA, this time in a Texas Church.
And yet US Gov, as defined by Repubs Dems and Big Wall Street Media/Money, has done nothing about the Vegas shooting as they will do nothing about this Texas mass shooting, instead they have the buffoon Trump in Asia, providing 10s of Billions of Dollars of Free Military to the richer Asian countries such as Japan, S Korea, etc. talking about multi Trillion Dollar War on North Korea that has done nothing to American People while we are having one mass shooting massacre of American People in USA after another. Really sick :(

Yes, very sad and True :(
So we have yet another Mass shooting in USA, almost a Weekly affair now, and all Republicans and right-wing Media such as the psychos on Fox say is:
"Our prayers are with the victims"
"The hero cops and 1st respondents deserve lots of praise"
etc.

rather than take the steps that other Democracies such as Uk taken when such horrific acts occurred as a result, which is ban assault weapons and hand guns, as result of which UK has not had mass shooting in 20 years.

Mass shootings are horrible events that most often are ended by a GOOD GUY, with a gun.
In France over 80 people were run down and crushed by a TRUCK, because no private citizens were armed and able to stop the bloodshed.
When there are only seconds to act, the police are still minutes away.
Require that the head of every household submit to drug and sanity testing, take a gun safety course and be certified by the NRA in safety and marksmanship. Issue them a gun on a concealed carry basis...

...charging them with its maintenance. Wipe out all gun-free zones.
Not every head of a household will follow along, but of those who do, more will take a stand against the common criminals, gang bangers and terrorists trying to destroy our society. The law of the land will once again reign supreme.

Switzerland has the highest gun ownership in the world (even higher than the U.S.) largely due to government laws. If guns cause gun shootings, WHY don't we see mass shootings EVERY DAY there?

Fardoush,

Back to your original question, the reason why Trump has done something about gun control is simply that he belongs to the NRA, like most politicians in Washington. If you remember correctly, he not only ran on an extremely pro-gun platform, but also received large campaign contributions from the NRA.

Expecting Trump to give a damn about a few poor people, gunned down in a church in Texas, is expecting way too much. It simply doesn't give a damn.

Switzerland has had ZERO mass shootings because they have many Socialized services such as universal socialized Healthcare so that there virtually no uninsured residents in Switzerland, so someone with Mental health

issues, which of course is the case with someone who goes Mental and hence they kill a mass of People, can get the Mental healthcare they need, but here in USA we do not have universal socialized Healthcare, thanks to Democrats, Republicans and Wall Street based Media, so someone with Mental healthcare can not get the care they need and when you combine that with easy access to Guns we have, results in USA having one mass shooting after another.

And on top of universal socialized Healthcare,

Switzerland has many other Socialized services, such as Free College education, Free for Taxes their people pay, as a result of which their People do not feel trapped and desperate as is the case with so many in USA, and again when you combine that with insane Guns we have, results in USA having one mass shooting after another.

Reporter, thanks for bitch slapping that mmerlinn Repuke with facts. But what is amazing is how can these people allude to Switzerland as an argument for Gun policies they support, without asking the question: WHY is it that Switzerland has not had a mass shooting in 50 Years, while USA has one mass shooting on average per Month? WHY cannot these Mother FUKERS ask this question and answer it!!!

Well the answers are, as you noted Switzerland like all other European Nations has Universal

socialized healthcare so a person with mental illness, which is of course the case with someone who goes on mass killing, can get the mental and other healthcare they need. But there are other answers too, such as the fact that Switzerland has not waged War on another Country for more than 100 Years, contrast that with USA which is engaged in War after War, which Wars of course require US Media to hate-monger and fear-monger about other People up the wazooo which of course blows back on us.

If you dolts would listen to the more intelligent posters, like mmerlinn, you would not be in a constant state of denial. You complain about guns, but overlook 50 years of jailhouse interviews which show that over 90% of violent crimes and homicides are committed by people, who self-identify as liberals and/or Democrats. Those numbers more than suggest that members of America's left-wing are a much greater danger to their fellow man than anyone else.

Getting rid of the TOOLS that criminals use will NEVER solve the crime problem. Look at the UK for example, basically no guns, but daylight home invasions are out of sight simply because home owners have NO LETHAL force to prevent home invasions, AND THE CRIMINALS KNOW THAT.

MM, 1st where did you get the fact that in "UK for example, basically no guns, but daylight home invasions are out of sight"? Or do you Republican lunatics have no use for facts and just feel you can rant without being fact checked?

2nd, UK has had ZERO mass shootings in 20 Years since they passed strict Gun laws. And UK has Gun death rates that are 0.1% of USA. And you are such nut job to ignore all these facts and instead spew the lie you have! Amazing, but this sort of sh&t pours our of Fox.

UK has had ZERO mass shootings in 20 Years since they passed strict Gun laws. And Trump Republicans know these facts, OF COURSE, yet they do nothing about this for American People. And instead they pass a Huge Tax cut for the Rich, as result of which Wall Street hitting Record HIGHs for their tool Trump

As long as the U.S. has liberals, Democrats and progressives we will have homicides, even mass shootings.
The only way to rid ourselves of these thugs is through honest education, as opposed to the corrupt left-wing run public school system that now indoctrinates our children and the corporate left-wing media brainwashing the otherwise ill informed populace.
You folks are the pitiful products of a system purposely undermined and corrupted by the anti-American left.

From answers of the Republican Trump fans here, one can conclude that Republicans do not give a squat about American People, unless of course for Americans Killed by Muslims to then wage more Wars on Muslims Countries. That is why they do NOTHING to stop the Mass Shootings in USA such as Las Vegas, as the Conservative parties in Uk, Australia, etc. did by passing strict Gun controls 20 Years ago as result of which they have had ZERO mass shootings in 20 Years.
Really Republicans are the Enemy :(

"Squat" is what you and your ilk give for the American people, Fardouche. Every year over 2,000,000 crimes are PREVENTED by gun owners without firing a shot. If they did not have their guns, you could add over 2,000,000 more to your list of crime victims. It appears that you want criminals in charge of America. Well, tough luck, she lost the presidency.

The "good guy with a gun" has become the standard argument of you right wingers who are so paranoid about sensible gun legislation.

Here is a great example of what I'm talking about:

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/11/6/16612014/sutherland-springs-shooting-good-guy-gun

This guy was an idiot and he could have killed numerous people with a stray shot or ricochet.

You ask: "Why US Gov does nothing about Mass Shootings in USA such as Las Vegas". Because the shooters were not Muslims or North Koreans. If they were Muslim or North Koreans, then Trump/Republicans/Democrats and the right-wing Media, aka FAKE News, will be falling over each other calling for multiple Multi Trillion Wars.
As was the case with 9/11. Any other questions.

Unfortunately, we were never told the real truth about 9/11. There was much more going on there that we were never told, or ever probably will be.

People of this country are being spoonfed false information about Muslims and North Koreans every day. This is part of the prewar brainwashing that usually always takes place, usually before a country attacks another country. Our government is trying to condition us for when we start seeing dead bodies on the news.

Which is proven from Mass shootings after mass shootings that they do nothing about, to state of Healthcare in USA which is an unfavorable nightmare compared to rest of the developed World whom all have universal socialized Healthcare, to etc. etc.
When?

I hate to be such a cynic, but I have my doubts that the American people will ever wake up and stop electing idiots to office.

As long as brilliant and committed people like Bernie Sanders are passed over for people like Hilary Clinton, a well-known Wall Street player, we're always going to be stuck in the same place. As long as people of this country are afraid to take a gamble and start wising up, we are stuck.

Why aren't American People out on the Street by the 10s of Millions demanding universal socialized Healthcare, what the rest of developed World marched for and Decades ago and got it as a result.

Why aren't American People out on the Street by the 10s of Millions demanding END to Wars after War, as we did during Vietnam War???

Sarah,

There are two reasons for this as I see it; people are too self-absorbed, and they are largely ignorant about what happened in the 60s, especially the antiwar movement.

People nowadays have been hypnotized by social media delivered to them by their smart phones, which they cannot take their hands off for a few minutes. Thanks to our failing education system, many young people don't even know anything about the Vietnam War. They could not find Vietnam on the map if life depended on it.

Speak for yourself. Or speak for the White Trash Trump/Republican supporters. The Liberal/Educated People I know and am, can find just about any Country on the Map, set aside "U.S. on a map". So lets get back to the real issue of this Question which has been further highlighted by the Killings in NYC. That is whereas Republicans and Fox said after Vegas shooting:
"Lets not Politicize this" AND did nothing about that Killing of 59 Americans

in NYC shooting they Politicizing it to War War end.

Since you brought up the killings in New York city, I guess that means you also advocate for the banning of TRUCKS. On same note you must also be for the banning of AIRPLANES because the largest mass killing in America was caused by them.

You are the one who usually mutilates you own questions, mostly because you have a mutilated right-wing point of view. By the way, you would not know the truth if it bit you on the backside.

WOW you are so insane that you are now saying:
"left leaning Fox news"
This means you are calling the Ultra right-wing Fox News, the supreme Fake News, to be "left leaning news"! My good man you have lost total credibility on any claim on Truth by making such a total insane comment.

There is an old saying that he who laughs last laughs best. Eventually, if I live long enough, I will laugh last. And remember when that happens that "i told you so."

I won't hold my breath waiting for you to agree, because you won't and can't. Just as an alcoholic seldom recovers until he hits rock bottom, you won't be able to agree until things get so bad that you hit rock bottom.

In the meantime, enjoy the ride down. It does not hurt until you hit bottom.

And no way is Fox a right wing media concern - at best it is centrist, but that is stretching it. Of course, even a centrist is right wing to a leftie.

mmerlinn, you are absolutely brain dead hopeless if you think the Ultra Right-Wing Fox is "at best it is centrist". After all these Mother FAKERS:

1- Oppose Universal Healthcare that Media in all European Nations, Canada, Australia, Israel, etc. 100% support

2- Oppose sensible strict Gun controls that all Conservative parties in European Nations, Canada, Australia, etc. 100% support

3- They support and War after War after War

etc. etc.

The liberal elitist and corrupt corporate left-wing media is in control of the news, while the extremist liberal and progressive politicians do their bidding.
Sometimes you must fight fire with fire. Let the government arm, train, test and NRA certify every head of household and issue them a concealed carry permit.
Soon crime, on every level, will start to decrease.

If the liberals would have had control of anything, we would have had gun control years ago. Since when did the liberals ever pander to the whims of the NRA?

I am seriously beginning to think that you are deranged. Speaking in opposites, usually some sign of a serious psychiatric condition. See a shrink, already!

If the liberals would have had control of everything, the whole U.S. would be like Detroit, Chicago, et alia. The liberals have had control in those places for DECADES, NOTHING has improved, and things keep getting worse and worse. Since you are so enamored about how good it is where liberals are in control why don't you do us all a favor and move to South Chicago, like south of Garfield.

Wheeler, you once again prove the left to be derangement central and you are one of its products.
If you really want to stop these crimes, issue the head of every household a handgun and a concealed carry permit, after a complete background check, required NRA safety and marksmanship training.
The householder is then required to always be armed. Massacres, like in Texas, will end overnight. Snipers and bombers will be the only kind of criminal attacks this will not stop.

You right-wing pro-gun nuts always have the same answer for every time one of these horrible incidents occurs, which is arm everyone to the teeth.

Many people have said that they refuse to carry firearms, such as teachers after Sandy Hook, when you right wingers all proposed arming teachers. What are you going to do? Force people to carry guns whether they want to or not?

Unleashing the "cowboy mentality "is the last thing we need to solve the problem of gun violence.

The NHS is failing, worldwide, and gun control is merely a way for the left to institute their police state, without opposition. Vote Democrats out of every level of government, break up their criminal organization and bring peace to the U.S.

Thom,

You seem to be of the belief, like most right-wingers, that if you tell the same lie enough times, people will eventually believe it. Your philosophy closely resembles the philosophy of Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's propaganda minister.

Just because you say the same thing over and over again, doesn't make it any more valid or true. What you are saying is nothing but lies, and I have a good feeling that you know that already.

Your way of thinking is the textbook definition of insanity.

You keep pushing all the things that the Nazis did and suggest that SOMEONE ELSE resembles Goebbels!!! Wasn't he youth Hitler Youth idol?

Because US Government is lead by an absolute lying Sociopath in person of Trump, and Republicans and right-wing Media that make this psychopath possible. So not has Trump and Republicans in general have not done an iota to address the causes of this Mass Shooting, Trump in further proving what Sociopath he is, Today Tweeted:
"Just out report: 'United Kingdom crime rises 13% annually amid spread of Radical Islamic terror.' Not good, we must keep America safe!"
When less than 1000 were Killed in UK last year vs 16,000+ in USA.
And to which psychotic non-sense all Political parties in UK have spoken about, such as this by a Conservative MP: "It is appalling that we have reached the point where inflammatory and ignorant statements from the President of the United States are now seen as normal."

You are absolutely right. It is really astonishing and telling about the state of affairs in USA and our Fake President Trump that rather than observing and stating the fact that UK passed strict Gun laws 20 Years ago as a result of which UK has had almost ZERO mass shootings in 20 Years, vs on average 1 mass shooting per month in USA, Trump the Fake psycho president is fear mongering about a fake report that "crime rises 13% in UK due to Radical Islamic terror".

But somehow by some straight face he is fear mongering about the crime rate in UK, which is a tiny fraction of that in US, due to "Islamic Terror". Really

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.

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.

1- Obama Waged more Wars than Bush
2- Obama did not pass any real Gun controls
3- Obama passed a Healthcare plan proposed by the Ultra Right-Wing of Republican party (aka Heritage Foundation), a water down version of RomneyCare! Here: http://www.realnewspost.org/sa.php?a=64892
etc. etc.

Of course Trump is making Obama/Democrat look good by saying one psychotic non-sense after another.

Reporter,

Unfortunately, I have to agree with you. The Democrats haven't really done much about the issues you mentioned either. They currently have a great division within the Democratic Party. One faction, represented by Hillary Clinton for example, wants to pander to Wall Street and big business while pretending to represent the working class. In other words, they want to play on both sides of the fence; something which is impossible.

The other faction wants to reform the Democratic Party.

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.

You are the definition of insanity; keep doing the same thing over and over again and hoping for different results, which don't happen.

Like I said before, your imitation of Joseph Goebbels is getting tiring. He used to say that if you hold the same line repeatedly people would eventually believe it was true.

You need to try a different strategy because the current one of imitating him isn't working for you.

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"?

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.

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.

"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

why can we bear "Machine Guns, Bazookas, Grenade Launchers, Shoulder fired anti aircraft missiles, etc.."

Really amazing and telling as to how right-wing entire Wall Street based Media from ABC to CNN to MSNBC are that they never ask these Republicans/Trump about these facts! So yes you are right: USA is really under attack by a True Enemy within, resulting in the 59 Americans killed in Vegas and our so called Government doing NOTHING about it as it!

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.

Come on man, join the REAL World! Only President and World Leader that is talking about Nuclear War (aka THIRD WORLD WAR), is Trump the psychopath, the product of the Fake News, aka right-wing Wall Street based Media. And it is the same Trump the psychopath, the product of right-wing Wall Street based Media, and Republicans and Fraud Democrats who are also against passing sensible Gun laws, as you passed in Australia passed 20 Years ago as a result of which you have had ZERO mass shootings.

prophet,

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.

The answer to which are that the Ultra right-wing Media from Fox to Psychos on TalkRadio, are backed by some very EVIL Wall Street Billionaires such as the Mercers, to have brain washed you, brain FAWKED you to think that slaughter of American due to our insane Gun laws is the "American way.

And countries that have strict Gun laws and hence ZERO Mass shootings in 20 Years are the Uber democracies of UK, Australia, etc. and not Cuba or China.

OMG, Reporter man, you have completely destroyed one of the Key talking points of Republicans, Fox and rest of the right-wing Media, that is our current Gun laws, are: "American way". And if you try to take our Guns away, you are taking our "rights away" and it will lead to tyranny, etc. non-sense. Man you have really destroyed these talking points so beautifully!

My question is why don they interview you on MSNBC or Fox? Based on your eloquent answers you will destroy their right-wing lies.

imtee,

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.

Why do all of you blame the God fearing people who obey the U.S.A. laws and would never do what took place in Las Vegas. it is up to each of us to take responsibility for our actions, not blame hose who try their best to be law abiding citizens. What do we the adults set up for the children to follow, a negative or positive attitude and a way of life?

No one is "blaming the God fearing people who obey the U.S.A. laws", but what we are stating is the FACT that if you pass Strict Gun Laws then the Crazy lunatics such as the guy in Las Vegas Mass Shooting, the guy in Orlando Mass Shooting, the guy in X Mass Shootings, would not have had the Guns that Killed these People in such a fast and cowardly way. And these Americans will be LIVING.

of American People on issue after issue, such as Healthcare. To be exact these Republicans, Democrats and Wall Street right-wing Media fully know that Government run Universal Socialized Single payer Healthcare (NHS) is the only way to run the Healthcare of a Country, given the facts that:

1- Their beloved Israel has NHS.
2- All Conservative parties in Europe, Canada, Australia, including Margaret Thatchers Conservative party in UK, 100% support their NHS

TD, Exactly & Exactly. So the question we need to ask ourselves, is how is that so many American People have been so brain washed, so brain screwed up, that they equate the sensible Gun laws which would have SAVED the lives of 59 Americans slaughtered in Vegas, SAVED the lives of 49 Americans slaughtered in Orlando, etc. etc. to:
"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.

The same document that gives me the right to own a gun is the same document that gives the politicians the right to govern.
When my right to own a gun no longer exist neither does their right to govern.

And the 30,000 Americans that are KILLED per Year due to insane Gun laws in this Country? How is your/mine so called right to own Guns, set aside Assault rifles, above their rights to LIVE?

1- State of Healthcare in this country, where all developed Nations have Universal Socialized Healthcare but US,
2- State of Guns in thus country,

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

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 also sad about this and I agree that you have a good handle on the situation.

If we can change a few minds, it will be a good start.

Actually, Planned Parenthood does a lot more for lower income women than providing abortions. They do a lot more healthcare screening, mammograms, Pap smears, and lots more preventive medicine than most lower income women have access to.

It's an easy statistic to find, so I would suggest that you go find it and stop talking right wing bullshit, for a change.

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.

The US government does nothing about mass shootings because most of them, including the Democrats, are in the pockets of the gun lobby (a.k.a. the National Rifle Association). The NRA has been throwing big money around Washington DC and the state capitals to derail any attempts at sensible gun control. They have been given sabotaging potentially good legislation like background checks, straw purchasers, and various other pieces of legislation that have the potential of controlling firearms, and not threatening the Second Amendment in any way.

Yes very True. On every major issue Big Wall Street based corporations are putting their Profits and Share prices ahead of the well being of the American People. That is from Healthcare, where USA is the only country among so called Developed Nations that does not have something as basic as Government run Universal Socialized Healthcare (NHS), what 100% of all Developed Nations have had for Decades, including Israel beloved Nation of Republicans, Democrats & right-wing Media; to having insane Gun laws,

all these horrible facts exists with life in USA because Wall Street based Big Health insurance, Big Pharma, Big Gun Makers via their whore NRA, etc. wants to make 100s of Billions of Dollars in profits and share price sales, DAMN be the American People! So the ONLY real question is how is it that American People are not in the street by 10s of Millions demanding real change in these areas!

You know the root cause of all USA's misery is the ultra right-wing Media, such as and specially Fox. Because these bastards every day, spew out the exact opposite of Truth and spin every data to make sure nothing right and good is done for American People, another example of which is this mass shooting in Vegas by a Rich White Dude, as a result of which Fox reporters actually say:
"How can you hate a Guy like this" and other non-sense.

You people must live in an alternate universe. Here on Earth the corrupt, corporate left-wing media is its own liberal/progressive anti-democracy party and puts its lies and subversive efforts behind the Democrats.

Thomat de Moran, only in mind of you Republican lunatics, made lunatic by the psychosis that pours out of ultra right-wing Media, such as and specially Fox, do we have "left-wing media". For if US Media was not right-wing Media, then we would have:

1- Strict control on Guns as they have in UK, Australia, etc.

2- Certainly not a Gun policy where one can buy Assault Weapons, which is used in all these Mass shootings in US such as this in Vegas

3- Not engaged in War after War after War
etc.

Numbnuts TD, In France a terrorist killed 83 people. That is 24 more than died in Las Vegas. Oh, that's right the murder weapon wasn't a gun; it was a truck.
Then there was the attack in Manchester that killed 22 young people. Oh, I forgot, they weren't shot, that was a bomb.
Bombs are totally illegal, what happened? Are the French going to ban trucks? I am sure that Soggy would agree with a truck ban, before it spread to England from France. (cont.)

Thom,

So what is your point, if you even have one other than to show yourself to be a shill of the NRA?

Since the United States has more guns and is the most heavily on country on earth, gun control is way overdue here. Unfortunately, it may be too late for gun control to be effective since the situation has been allowed to deteriorate this far, mostly thanks to people who think as you do.

Ironically, one single firearm, in the hands of one single Frenchman could have saved 83 lives. But Europe is too progressive and liberal to think that way.
Europeans will continue to die, from axes, knives, trucks, cars, poison or any other way their enemies choose, without firing a single shot in their own defence.
Fools like you want that for America.

Wheeler, we have gun control, but we also have liberals, in high places, who are stupid enough to blame the gun and let the murderer off.
The NRA and all other intelligent citizens want our gun laws followed and lawbreakers punished.
Unfortunately, we also have the easily led, like you, TD and the other minions, who can't round up enough brain cells to understand the issue.

Thom,

Unfortunately, conservatives like you have always been in charge for quite a while. That's one reason why we have no gun control, because you gun nuts have derailed any attempt at sensible gun control.

Since when have liberals been to blame for letting off deranged murders, like this guy actually was? It would be nice if some of you right wingers owned your own shit and stop blaming liberals for every evil thing that happens in this country.

This Thomat is great example of what domestic Terror group NRA and GOP are. After all you moron more Americans are killed in Chicago per Year, that is just one US city, due to our insane Gun laws, than in all of France, including those killed in France by ISis, and you are worried about French! French would jail NRA and its supporters if they were ever to step into France given 30,000 Americans killed per Year due to our insane Gun laws that NRA supports vs less than 300 French killed per Year

of ill informed socialist ideology opens him to immediate criticism by the left who pretend NOT to be leftists. The circular reasoning employed by ALL their arguments reveals a severe lack of general knowledge or personal research. The gun control, universal health care, anti-military propaganda they parrot is sufficient proof that they lack objectivity essential to ANY rational debate.

You right-wingers are all alike. Whenever someone makes more sense and presents a better argument, you always resort to name-calling and faux indignation.

Maybe those of us on the left are more compassionate than you right-wingers. However, this doesn't make us any less committed or less informed. You right-wingers always act self-righteous as though you have all the answers to everything. Guess what! You don't!

TRUTH of GOD is an exact opposite of self-righteous. God ALONE is good, any good in me is HIS, not mine! Trusting His Word indeed makes me right - as are all who likewise accept and trust God's Word, NOT by self-righteousness - but because we know the TRUTH. Once the TRUTH has been established by a personal encounter, NO opposing argument can EVER cause doubt. We know what we KNOW. It is your right to accept or ignore it. But you can NEVER change it.

You right-wing Christians are a sanctimonious and self-righteous brunch, aren't you?

You always insist on obscuring any argument with a bunch of religious dogma, that no one really believes, except perhaps you. In some cases, I doubt even that you believe your own bullshit.

Wheeler, you said, "Whenever someone makes more sense and presents a better argument"

When someone makes more sense and presents a better argument, WHY DON'T YOU ACCEPT THAT BETTER ARGUMENT instead of CONSTANTLY arguing against that better argument? Are you trying to play the devil's advocate? If so, you are doing a HORRIBLE job of representing the Devil. Either ACCEPT the better argument OR LEARN how to denigrate it.

I am not trying to play the devils advocate, so don't even imply that. I say what I say because I refuse to recognize that you have the better argument, because you do not. Whether you like it or not, my arguments are heartfelt and well thought out. So, don't be so condescending in your remarks.

The answer is quite obvious that US Government does not care about American People. The only time they care about American People, is when a Muslim sounding person kills an American, which killing then they label "Terrorism" and will use as excuse to wage Multi Trillion Dollar Wars on Islamic Countries. So it is really telling, well astonishing, that when there is one of these ever too often massacre of American People by Christian sounding names, in USA, the answer by Republicans and right-wing Media such as Fox is:
"This is not the time to Politicize this tragedy" and their only response and action is "Our Heart and Prayers are with the victims and their families"
But when a Muslim person kills an American or a European, then Republicans and right-wing Media and Democrats call for "Maximum Politicizing that tragedy" aka Military action and War by US Government, such resulting in Wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, etc..

1st off, Kimmel has become an uniformed puppet of the left. The reason the government hasnโ€™t โ€˜done anythingโ€™ is because it CANNOT legislate the free will actions by individual lunatics. Las Vegas is the worst mass shooting ever, but the weapons used were ALREADY designated ILLEGAL from prior legislation! Historically, everywhere gun regulations get stricter โ€“ law-breakers continue to ignore them โ€“ and senseless killings persist. Statistically, the overwhelming majority of gun crimes are committed by people who did not use lawful weapons. Outlaws always find a way to get guns, regardless of gun regulation laws! The L.V. shooter had no criminal record and would have passed all background checks that would have prohibited his LEGAL right to purchase guns, reinforcing the old adage = โ€œGuns donโ€™t kill people, people do! How can the government prevent ANY idiot from deciding to commit murder? It CANโ€T!!! 2nd Amendment rights are more important.

There is no better proof of the emptiness of your argument, than shooting the messenger, that is Jimmy Kimmel n this Video, rather than dealing with the facts of his message that is shared by entire developed World, which is the insane Gun laws in USA are OBVIOUSLY responsible for USA having Murder by Guns that are 10,000% and higher than other developed Nations. And as already pointed out, for example after UK adopted strict Gun laws, they have barely had a mass shooting in 20 Years! Same goes

for Australia. That is Australia too about 20 Years ago had a terrible mass shooting, nothing like this in Vegas or 49 Shot dead in Orlando, but anyway after their mass shooting in 1996 they adopted strict Gun laws and after that they have had ZERO Mass shootings. Here:

https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2017/10/australia-gun-control/541710/

What part of these facts, dont you People get?
Or are you People true Enemy within and want countless more Americans Killed per Year!

The question is why in GODs name is anyone allowed to buy Assault Style weapons such as AR15? And according to this NRA lunatic I was watching on a UK Talk show, his answer actually was:
"AR15 is one of the least powerful Assault Style weapons ... so what is the point of banning it..."
The answer to which is well the problem is then much worse, and calls for immediate and total banning of all Assault Style weapons, as other civilized Nations have done so.

Gurd, an "Assault Style" has nothing about it that would make it a particularly useful combat weapon. It LOOKS like a combat weapon, but is only a semi-automatic and one round is fired by one pull of the trigger.
I carried an M-16 in Vietnam, while they may look identical my M-16 was a fully-functioning machine gun or could be fired one shot at a time - my choice.

RP, Gurd will soon see his/her country overrun by savages and will wish the population was armed for self-defense, as is the U.S.
Gurd and Germanistan will be dragged backwards, into the dark ages.
We will never be like Australia. We understand that we have a people problem that cannot be cured by disarming the law-abiding. No NRA members murdered anyone last year and probably won't this year either. If you don't like guns, don't buy one. If that isn't good enough for you, move to Australia.

Oz is already being overrun by the Chinese, "legally" of course, especially in northwestern Western Oz. Once the Ozmonians realize what is happening and begin to clamp down on the Chinese, the Chinese will become illegal immigrants with NOTHING to stop them! And you can bet that they WILL bring their guns with them to prevent their deportations. 25 million Ozmonians without guns won't be able to stop 1.4 BILLION Chinese, even if the Chinese do not bring guns.

RP - Quote taken directly from the website you referred โ€“ โ€œAmerica has more people, more guns per capita, and, perhaps most importantly, a constitutional right to bear arms.โ€ The article goes on to cite the legislation passed in Australia to ban automatic rifles & impose a 28 day waiting period for registration โ€“ both of which US law ALREADY does. The L.V. shooter accumulated his arsenal over a 20 year period โ€“ so he got around the law, as could ANY idiot.

That proves legislation only keeps honest people restricted โ€“ NOT insane murderers. The REAL agenda behind gun-control lobbyists is to change the US Constitution โ€“ NOT resolve mass shootings! The same supporters of gun control also are behind ANTIFA, BLM, & โ€˜progressive globalismโ€™ (socialism in disguise). Every state that has adopted concealed weapons permits has seen a dramatic drop in crime, NOT an escalation!

Get your facts straight and concentrate on the criminals (who will ALWAYS have guns). Stop expecting the government to solve all your problems โ€“ health care, gun control, war. Like I said before, the L.V. shooter used ILLEGAL weapons. The guns were ALREADY restricted by law. His modifications from semi-automatic were also ILLEGAL. More restrictive legislation would NOT have prevented his crime. When the revolution escalates to mob violence as seen in recent protests, don't expect gun control

lobbyists to protect you from anarchists threatening your safety. Strip us of our respect for police, take away our guns, denigrate our president, praise Marxist dictators, kill the unborn, pretend that the evil is good, spread that propaganda. But God still reigns, & those who truly revere Him shall stand through it all. That is the hope behind "God bless America". The money you use to support your lifestyle, whatever it may be, still bears that claim. THAT is America worth defending.

"The L.V. shooter had no criminal record and would have passed all background checks that would have prohibited his LEGAL right to purchase guns, ... How can the government prevent ANY idiot"

Obviously Guns Kill People since if we had laws against buying Assault Weapons, which NO one has any right to buy and own, then this "Idiot" would not have been able to shoot 59 people from 32 floors up.

SBO, Does your pen misspell words? Does your car cause accidents? Does your kitchen make you fat? The obvious answer is no, to all the above, as it is to "Do guns kill people?
People with guns, or many other objects, kill people.
Gun deaths per 100,000 people were 3.5 homicides (divided almost equally between self-defense and murder) and 7 were suicides. The vast majority of all those 10.5 homicides per 100,000 people occur in Democrat-controlled population centers, with strict gun laws.

Thomat, in countries that have Strict Control on Guns, such as UK the symbol of conservative ideas as per Reagan, etc. Republicans in USA, they have 0.001% of the Death by Guns that USA has. To be exact last year 33,000 Americans were Killed by Guns vs something like 25 in UK that has strict Gun controls.
So only a True ENEMY of American People, would look at these numbers and state the crap that you have stated, which is pretty much what pours out of Fox and psychos on Talkradio.

To be exact, as horrible the Mass shooting was in Las Vegas, it pales in comparison to number of Americans Killed per Year by Guns by either People or Police. Contrast this to Countries with strict Gun controls, such as UK, and 30,000+ American citizens lives could be saved per Year. Here:
