    Videos showed muzzle flashes. If you have to, shoot at the muzzle flashes. The side of the Mandalay bay resort is lit anyway, a good sniper could have taken him out. You don't think cops are trained in sniping at night?

    You only fire at the window thats broken that has muzzle flashes coming out of it. I could see which windows were broken with the naked eye, much less with a high power scope.

    Some stupid liberals were asking "what happened to the CC holders, why didn't they shoot back? They are supposed to be heros but were running like pussies".

    1. Guns were not allowed at this concert. So CC holders who were actually following the law (yes there are a few of them left) wouldn't have had a gun to shoot back.

    2. The shooter was over 400 yards away, CC means a handgun, they are useless at 400 yards.

    Again ----- same question originally posted ---------- WHERE does it say "Democrat"?

    Do you just not understand what the term "Democrat" means? Does the OP not get that either?
    Are y'all stupid?

    Yes that is all. Not much at all. I could easily and legally go buy any gun right now.

    Again we can close roads. Can use barriers and spike strips. But you want every option available to killers.

    With all the chaos going on you think he would have quickly found and shot him. Sure.

    So rather than gun control which works we need more snipers. Funny.

    Yep, I myself keep a can of gasoline handy in case something I'm cooking catches fire. So I can douse it.

    We live in a bifurcated world, in which most people who give a flying rat's patoot about politics identify with one of the major parties. No,I don't have concrete evidence that this guy belongs to one party or the other, but the majority of American "journalists" identify with the democrats. This guy is clearly left leaning, and the odds are that he is a democrat. I was being tongue in cheek by sarcastically suggesting that he was a Republican. Obviously, he is not. I would posit, though, that his sympathies would lie on the democrat side of the fence.

    We need to ban GAMBLING. Clearly, it leads to Mass Murder.

    And while we're at it, let's ban drinking, dancing, and pre-marital sex. Woke SJWs are the New Puritans of America!

    I know you were, but it's the same idiocy as the original idiocy to pretend that the world exists as some idiotic dichotomy like that. I for one belong to the largest political party faction in these United States, which is "NONE".

    Aside from that obvious point, while condeding the one ass-umption you've injected several more, to wit: "this guy is clearly left leaning" and "the odds are that he is a democrat [sic]". Bullshit. What you have here is an "Everybody Knows X, therefore X is true" fallacy. Nothing more.

    The bottom line still is, if you make an assertion you'd better be ready to back it up. With something a bit more tangible than "it seems likely" or "everybody knows" --- and then submit as your evidence a Wiki page that never mentions it at all.
