59 people died, 4 are Canadian, because of Stephen Paddock, with motive unknown right now, decided to go on a shooting rampage. I want us to think about the fallen for a second, and ask ourselves what would honour their memories. Every time something like this happens, leftists call for more gun control, but criminals don’t necessarily follow the law. While gun control to prevent people with visibly erratic behaviour would probably help, not everybody who is ready to do this kind of stuff would be noticed by individuals within the system. It’s time to get answers about what happened, not virtue signal about gun control.
With the Stephen leaving so many dead and wounded, the discourse has become another ‘let’s have more gun control’ to prevent people from dying in these kinds of mass shootings. The authorities would have found it hard to identify psychopaths because they meld into society, and have great self-control. I think there was very little we could have done until just before the event, to prevent Stephen from getting the weapons and opening fire. If lawmakers take guns off the table, then Stephen may have chosen a different weapon to get his ‘revenge’ or decide to break the law and get guns anyways. Pyschopathic people have complete control of themselves. He’d go through the background checks, and people would see nothing, and interviews would have shown nothing, so there would have been nothing to withhold him buying any guns he wanted. The only ‘common-sense’ gun control laws would be, well, let’s put high powered rifles like the ones he used on an illegal list because he caused too much damage.
Gun control is not the answer, and the only solution I could think of is, improved security in places that are going to hold major events. If people who have criminal intent can’t get guns through legal means, as Stephen did, they will get them illegally. Enabling gun control would mean the shooter has an unfair advantage over everybody else.
Stephen came in with ten suitcases filled with guns and equipment. He was prepared to wreak havoc on a bunch of strangers at that country music festival. The only answer the police has on motive is maybe he had a life-changing event that just occurred.
Lombardo said he is “absolutely” confident authorities will find out what set off Paddock, a 64-year-old high-stakes gambler and retired accountant who killed himself before police stormed his 32nd-floor room. . .
As for what may have set Paddock off, retired FBI profiler Jim Clemente speculated that there was “some sort of major trigger in his life — a great loss, a breakup, or maybe he just found out he has a terminal disease.”
That would be an interesting thing, what triggered him to do what he decided to do? Everybody wants and needs to know what made him do this, and then things will probably make sense. Maybe he was going to die, and he decided to take some people with him? Maybe he did hate Trump Supporters and opened fire on people who would be ‘Republicans’? We’ll figure it out soon, and I hope for the US sake, it is not – let’s kill a bunch of Republicans who support Trump, that would lead to civil war.
During my travel down the rabbit hole, the leftists have come out of the woodwork, claiming some of the most outrageous things. Including that 273 mass shootings have happened this year. I wanted to find where this stat is coming from, and I finally found it, Gun Violence Archive.org, which seems to be a very leftist propaganda tool. As they define it, any attack that injures or kills four people can be a ‘mass shooting’. Some of these ‘incidences’ could be used to show the narrative that black and black crime and Islamic Crime is a problem in the United States, just saying. According to a more reliable source, CNN says, Since 1966-2012, there have been about 90 mass shootings in America.
The debate is whether this is because of strict gun laws, or loose gun laws is an interesting discussion going on the Internet. When you think about it, nobody bats an eye when Islamic warriors drive ‘trucks of peace’ and kill dozens. We don’t start demanding better ‘van control’ laws because most people behind the wheel are not out to hurt people, cars are tools that allow us to travel great distances in a short amount of time.
Let me break this argument down. If we do not talk about ‘Van and Truck control’ after a major terrorist attack using a Van or Truck to kill people, we shouldn’t talk about gun control after some murderous person wants to kill people with guns instead of trucks and vans.
Now, you could say that guns are intended to be weapons, and trucks are not. People who only plan on defending themselves will never kill someone out of rage. They will only kill people who are threatening them physically. How many people have been saved because someone had a firearm and was trained on how to use it.
Guns do not kill people unless the person behind the weapon has murderous intent. I think America needs to learn the riddle of steel. That is a reference from Conan the Barbarian. When Conan was before Thulsa Doom, Thulsa Doom taught Conan the riddle of steel. Steel (any weapon) is weak, and is only as strong as the flesh wielding it. Guns are just like long ranged swords. Guns are nothing, without any purpose, but the purpose of the person who is using it.
In other words, guns can only do what the people who are wielding them want them to do. Many just want something to protect themselves, and a small minority go out to attack people, and others go out to kill themselves with guns (if you take guns away from them, they’re just find something else like knives and overdoses). If you take guns away from ‘mass murders’ they will switch over to trucks and cars, and that could be even more dangerous for people. If someone has murderous intent, they can use the ‘van of peace’ example to run over and kills lots of people, and then explode the car in a fiery explosion to kill even more.
It’s time to have a more mature dialogue. Violent Crime is never going to change. Violent criminals will find different ways to kill people and engage in mass murder if you take their ability to acquire guns away. Anybody can go on the Internet and find recipes that will allow them to make explosives from household ingredients, so you cannot stop someone who intends on killing people. And the only thing that could prevent more human life being lost is if someone shot and killed the driver who is intent on killing people.
When you hear about Gun violence, the places that have the most murders are the places where there are the most strict gun control laws, like Chicago. People don’t pull guns out on people in places where others may have a gun themselves.
