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.
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.
Virtually all other first world countries don't have the mass shooting problem or general gun death rate in the United States so either the United States has too many guns (it has far more per capita than most first world countries) or its citizens are too violent. If it's the former, we should drastically reduce availability of guns. If it's the latter, we should drastically reduce availability of guns.
Otherwise, all you're saying is it's more important to you to have a gun than for other people to live since there are over 30,000 gun deaths in the U.S. every year.
