    Las Vegas Music Festival Shooting

    How many more times will something like this have to happen before the powers that be recognize and take action regarding the deplorable state of mental health in this country?

    Thoughts and prayers out for all those affected by this horrible thing.

    Nevada could have prevented or mitigated this terrorist act if it had responsible, adult gun regulation.

    Gun regulation in Nevada is, essentially, "Whatever".

    While I agree with your comment about gun regulation, it is only one aspect of the problem.

    My concern is how the Republicans/NRA are going to distance themselves from him, and somehow blame liberals.

    You're right that the modern-era NRA will try to color this as a mental health issue -- that's SOP. They do what they do. But the rest of us can focus on the victims of this and past events, and try to protect the rest of us from becoming victims in the future.

    And, no matter what Wayne L's gang says, the rest of us know that:
    A. bringing automatic weapons
    B. with multiple high-capacity magazines
    C. to a specifically reserved hotel room with vantage over an outdoor concert venue
    is premeditated terrorism.

    I am not a liberal, modern era or an NRA supporter.
    However, this IS a mental health issue.
    If you people think that mentally healthy people are committing crimes like this, I really have to wonder about your definition of mental health.
    Do you really think that people who commit premeditated terrorism are mentally healthy?

    Re: Las Vegas Music Festival Shooting

    It's not just that, it's the tendency conservatives have when they deflect blame from them and somehow associate them with liberals. Of the previous shootings I've heard......
    "Transgendered bank robber"
    "Worked for Progressive Insurance"
    "Bernie Sanders/Jill Stein Voter"
    "Independent"
    "Parents are registered Democrats"
    Etc. Etc. Etc.

    In turn, Democrats are the ones pushing for gun control, so how do these Conservatives explain why Democrats are disarming their own kind?
