I can’t. I just can’t write anything about the prompt. My mind is too shocked by the horrific events in Las Vegas last night.
Fifty people are dead this morning, and over 400 are wounded. Fifty people DIED.
How can people think it is ever okay to shoot an automatic weapon into a crowd? HOW? What makes a person think this is a good thing to do? What kind of hatred must they feel for humanity in order to pull that trigger?
64 year-old men just do not wake up one day and think “Oh gee, Maybe I should go shoot an automatic weapon into a crowd of 20K and see how many drop”
DO THEY? Is this something that men do? And why?
Why isn’t law enforcement or the media calling this an act of terrorism? I am terrified and I am not even near Las Vegas.
Anyone picking up an AUTOMATIC weapon and pointing it at human beings is a terrorist! The ONLY exception to that particular rule of humanity is if that person is wearing a uniform and fighting a war.
You don’t stand at a hotel window, break out the glass and open fire on music lovers.
I no longer understand humans.
How many times must this sort of horror occur before Americans wake up and say no more?
How many innocents must die because a soulless, hate-filled person can buy a semi-auto at a gun show or local Walmart?
We need to decide what is more important to our country…this sort of heinous act or the ability to buy a weapon and thousands of rounds of ammo?
We need rational gun control now.
No more whining about the Second Amendment. At the time that amendment was written, there was no such thing as an automatic weapon. It was written when black powder single shot guns were the best and most modern one could buy. Times have changed and not for the better. The laws need to change as well.
