In wake of Las Vegas massacre, devices to mask gunshot sound debated

In wake of Las Vegas massacre, devices to mask gunshot sound debated

The founding fathers also knew that fully automatic weapons would be a possibility. He killed himself before police entered the hotel room. We are still learning new details about the shooter and possible motivations.

Demonstrators rally against the National Rifle Association and call for tougher gun laws in Federal Plaza in the wake of the mass shooting in Las Vegas. Already we have seen reactions across multiple platforms of social media, which is a handsome sight to see. Robbers and beatings? If you are ever in a life-threatening situation like that, statistics overwhelmingly say you are far better off running than fighting. "What we're getting from NRA members is grief and fear, the same way other Americans are grieving".

Another gun massacre. Isn't it about time we did something to kill the romance of the gun?

We must close this loophole so that we can ensure that we have a safeguard against those who should not possess risky weapons. Enshrined in our founding documents and numbering over 300 million in the U.S., guns are here to stay. But, eventually, things will change over time.

The statement came from NRA leaders Wayne LaPierre and Chris Cox. "We must take action". While the usual suspects have made emotional appeals for gun control and crowned a late night comedian the "conscience of America" (both right out of the gun-control playbook for these incidents), there has been a significant amount of clue dispensed about the efforts to preserve and expand our innate right to armed self-defense. Besides, Slide Fire's ads say, they're fun!

I have seen a lot of anger on social media about people "politicizing" a tragedy and how we should never actually talk about solutions to the tragedy, we should only continue to be saddened by it.

I totally agree with the comment in Saturday's paper. And I hope that Americans will step up and say, 'Enough is enough. The pesky Second Amendment words gun activists so often overlook are these: "well regulated".

Perhaps it would help if the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were allowed to study gun violence in the first place. I think it's too easy for people to obtain weapons in this country. The Las Vegas attack exposed a gaping hole in the existing and widely supported automatic-weapons ban - and Republicans can easily close it without infringing on constitutional rights.

It is also important to look at these shootings case by case. We should make the same decision about assault rifles and other automatic weapons that have no legitimate sporting goal. The same logic can and should apply to gun shootings like this one. It is likely that we will always be at higher risk for gun violence than other countries are, simply because of how many weapons are available here. Was mass slaughter in Las Vegas necessary so these shooters can enjoy their patriotic thrill? That includes looking at gun control laws as well as mental health issues.
