    Damn I'm listening to the Howard Stern replay. He had the Sirius guy who was hosting the show last night on. So scary and sad to hear his account. I know there will be so many more in the coming days. Stories of good people that lost their lives because we won't do anything about guns.

    We were in Las Vegas this past weekend. Thursday through Sunday morning. Thank god we left when we did. We stayed at Mandalay Bay, our friends were on the 32nd floor.

    I went to bed hearing 2 and woke up to 50+. My heart my so heavy. We saw so many of these fans around the different casinos at night. We floated the lazy river with them during the day. I honestly feel heartbroken.

    I hope something with change. I'm not over optimistic about it, but there's hope. This world is just insane. I told my kids this morning and my 6 year old daughter said, "if you had died where would we live". It broke my heart to hear that because no 6 yr old should think that.

    EDIT: I fucking HATE that Sara Sanders is saying this isn't the "right time" to talk about gun control. When is the right fucking time? There's a mass shooting every other day. It's political because our politicians care more about their NRA scores than they do about actual Americans.

    Wait, they make silencers for MACHINE GUNS??? In what Universe is this needed for a civilian?

    I can’t begin to wrap my brain around this. Live music is my life and to think of so many people cut down doing something as simple as seeing a damn concert, it just isn’t fair.

    Fuck that guy. What a cruel, cowardly act.

    I keep arguing with a Russian bot on twitter, who keeps providing "proof" (random hoaxes, etc...) that the shooter is a liberal converted muslim. I just reply, Keep Blowing Putin!

    Reading authorities have located at least 34 guns. THIRTY-FOUR.

    And that's the trick of it. You have so many mass shootings in the US that it's never the "right time" to talk about it because there are always bodies cooling somewhere.

    I'm so over hearing about this shit, because NOTHING will be done. I'm so disgusted with the gun violence in the US. It's sickening, and no one will do a damn thing. We'll all be horrified, talk this to death and the NRA still owns our politicians. Nothing will be done.

    I've been keeping up with this all day. So sad, I can't imagine. And at a Jason Aldeen concert? No where is safe. I'm so sick of hearing of things like this. It's truly heartbreaking and the images are horrifying and you can't unsee. My heart and T&P's goes out to all affected as well s the first responders.

    Unfortunately, this is so true. I still can't believe a classroom full of 6 year olds wasn't enough.

    I read that he modified a semi-auto rifle into a full auto rifle. As I know next to nothing about guns I read that it's illegal to purchase an automatic rifle. So, as a work around people have created kits to change them. You can buy the kits legally, it's just illegal to actually modify the guns.

    In my opinion, NO ONE needs a semi-automatic rifle. NO ONE. You aren't using that for hunting. The only use for that type of gun is for killing a lot of people in a short amount of time. The 2nd amendment was meant to allow a militia back in the fucking 1700's. Not to arm every angry white male that feels he has been wronged. I'm appalled that those kids died and nothing happened. I'm disgusted with each and every law maker who supported the NRA over people.

    The reporter in this interview with Paddock's brother makes me so angry. To me, it's like she's holding him accountable by proxy. Asks him 'what messages he has for the victims'. Poor guy's as blindsided as the rest of us. I really hate these vultures in the media. They should leave the family alone unless the family comes to them, or unless they are actually shown to be involved in some way.
