You're about an hour behind, just been watching so didn't post. Fucking Dan Blizerian posting whilst running away saying he's off to get his gun. No, you're off to hide under your bed behind security you soft prick. People dying and he's succesfully made it all about him.

I'm always a bit "meh" when this happens in America due to their reluctance to have a stronger stance against gun laws over there. 

Horrible for the people involved and the families of the deceased but I'm sure this won't be the catalyst for any change in law in the US. 

Understandable but don't forget the majority of the people there are in favour of gun control.

Will never understand the gun culture in America. I don't know why they wouldn't want gun control when appalling events like this happen time and time again. 

RIP to those unfortunate people. So very sad.

Don't, I had a debate with an American over here and it was literally like debating with a rock. His biggest fear was the government and not the endless lunatics that carry out mass shootings and the abundance of guns available to street gangs.

R.IP.

Also why do most videos in this kind of tragedies are of very low quality?, where the fuck are the people with the good phones?!

very sad to hear about what's happened in Vegas and hope the death toll stays as low as is possible. RIP to any victims. 

Kinda agree with what Berserker is saying though! not that it's the most important thing of course. i guess in the frenzy of it all people just want to be quick to film or capture anything so in the rush of it all they're not that bothered with the quality of footage/photos.

Social media as usual was going crazy about who they thought it was and demonised the wrong person. Geary Danley wasn't the attacker, this is why you wait for more information but social media is unfortunately full of mongs.

Attacker has been named as Stephen Paddock. Apparently a registered sex offender that was shooting from a nearby hotel but motive not known yet.

I'm sure the NRA will come out and say more guns are needed to balance things out...

I saw the screenshot on social media of a guy named Stephen Paddock's criminal record as a registered sex offender and it says his date of birth was 1968... so that can't be him, the shooter is 64 years old.

There's 2 pictures circulating, the one with the actual woman they were looking to question is more likely the correct Stephen Paddock. Or maybe not... Don't know if the sex offender information about the attacker is actually verified or it's from a random person's detective work on the internet who doesn't know people can have the same name.

Either it is an old picture or a classic she is asian so he must be the killer :8_laughing: There's about a 40 year difference between the woman in the photo with the alleged Stephen Paddock and the picture of the woman who has been detained from her facebook account :8_laughing:

what they call that ???  2nd Amendment ??   Same here, i too had a discussion with an american patient, i told him that that Amendment is only valid during the Civil War, in which an ordinary person can protect himself against the government, but not in this day and age.   I enumerated the victims of drive-by shootings and that korean fellow who went on a rampage and many more examples,  but yeah, he never did cared to listen.

Gun control wouldn't change much at all. There are millions and millions of illegal and unregistered guns. It would only punish the lawabiders that already follow the laws to the T. People like this fellow don't give two fucks about your gun control laws and it wouldn't take him much time to gather an arsenal of illegal weaponry.

There needs to be a huge seizure of illegal weaponry before gun control laws mean anything. It was possible in Australia with the centralised population, minor gangs, minor organised crime, and smaller gun ownership. I'd like to see the powers that be waltz into Engelwood and seize the thousands od weapons held by gang bangers.

The idea is that the people can sufficiently create an armed militia to defend against a tyrannical government. Which is possible as many governments of old have become tyrannical (very unlikely but still possible), however the 1776ers aren't the people to be scared of really. Most people that perpetrate these massacres aren't gun nuts or conspiracy nuts.

Can't forget dearming the citizens is the first step in a totalitarian government O.o

They'd also have to secure the land border with Mexico. Anyone got any ideas? :ph34r:

Heh, I think I had a discussion with Gonzo about that. Turns out all the illegal Mexican guns comijg into the states are from the states to begin with! xD Literally shooting yourself in the foot

Also puts a dent in the "good guy with a gun" theory.

Although I guess if the concert-goers had been armed with some LMGs and maybe some over-shoulder rocket launchers or recoilless rifles they could have put up a fight.

Very rarely have I seen or heard of any yank using 'put up a fight' as a pro-gun stance. The only advocat I can think of is Jesse Ventura. The more common stance is arms detterence. Which to a degree may be true. It could be coincidental but the areas of Chicagoland that have banned guns altogether have higher rates of burglary. A perp is more likely to burglarise a place when they know they owner can't blow them away with their military grade shotgun xD
