Quote:Every time some act of gun violence or some terrible mass shooting happens, we either get the media or some political pundits who start to call for stricter gun laws, or who are going to start bashing the NRA, etc. I'm wondering how long this will take. So far, luckily, it seems that people have been focusing on mourning the victims and praising the police. I hope that this remains the case. But I'm sure that it's just a matter of time before this starts.
Quote:Also, in regards to this case, how did he manage to keep 23 (Was it 23?) guns in a hotel room? Did he never leave the room? Doesn't housekeeping check everything? It sounds kind of strange that he would be able to stockpile in a hotel room, especially in Vegas? Do they not check your stuff? I'm sure that things will change after this.
How did he manage to keep 23 guns in a hotel room? I think part of the reason for that is because we live in a society were purchasing high powered guns is pretty much viewed as a noncommittal practice; because we live in a time where merely suggesting that we keep these types of firearms from civilian purchase is erroneously viewed as a political agenda instead of a step towards preventing mass shootings. This happened because we've reached a point where we can't even have a proper discussion about it.
