      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.

    While I think we need to be extremely cautious about gun sales I am not myself per se against them. As for terrorist acts...you build bombs with fertilizer and house hold chemicals. I don't think we can stop all such violence...until we do a mental change/shift culturally and educationally. The answer is not as simple as...don't let anyone buy any guns, prohibition does not work in this country.

      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.

    He could have left a do not disturb sign out and walked it in piecemeal.

    I am more curious how owning that many guns on record I assume. How did that not set off any "watchdog" alarms.


They were bought from a few different shops and records are not allowed to be stored by the FBI. If you pass a background check they do not store your information anymore than that.

If you are clean than you could potentially buy however many guns you could without any red flags. Other than maybe the guy selling them to you questioning it. Just pick a few shops and mix in buying online. It is hypothetically incredibly easy.
