This subject is fading faster than Newtown 1st grade,
so a word about healing before its gone.

The direct and distant victims may all feel a kind of ; if only, if I coulda, woulda, shoulda, I might have. These are shock thoughts, the sooner you ban them from your mind the better. If you can just talk you will feel better. Some have the luxury of free non judgmental friends who will listen quietly but most of us will have to pay professionals. Do it. Instead of spending on your home spend for your mind.

Jesus is just the first name of the security guard that was shot 6 minutes before the crowd shooting began. I heard the recording of the security guard's warning that was relayed by the police. Somehow that message got lost once the serious shooting began.

The police is trying to evade this embarrassing fact.

Old dude, good point about the tracers that were out of stock where Pollard try to buy them. Lugging a 50 cal. into hotel room sounds heavy. Pollard probably imagined the crowd turning away from the resulting jet fuel inferno and turning back toward him.

I think Jet fuel is about as volatile as Kerosene which is much less than propane.

So...before there was any shooting from the windows into the crowd,
Jesus knocked on the shooters door. Then..

he was hit by bullets through the door while on a private camera.
OR
he was chased down the hall and shot in the leg while trying to hide.
he called on his own phone to Hotel Authorities or on a hallway phone, or both. We still do not know.

The Shooter then began his carnage and crowd shooting six minutes later and stoop shooting 10 to 12 minutes later. There were thousands of rounds of ammunition left over. He could have kept shooting but didn't? Was he afraid of cops coming in and capturing him? Did he shot himself then? The cops did not arrive or even discover a wounded Jesus in the hallway for at least 45 minutes. Then they blew the door open and discovered the guns and ammo alongside the body of Poddard.

Do go on but I interrupt to trace the TIMELINE of the shooter in Vegas.

Pollard moved into his Mandalay hotel room over two days then on the night of ... THEN

Note that the first person shot is the Security Guard.
He is always called The Security Guard. Why?
Because his name is Jesus. Honest to GOD.

Jesus came to the door and Poddard shot the shit out of him through the door with automatic gunfire.

What did Jesus do?

He said he called his boss, police changed the words to authorities.
Here are all the versions   different stories

Did the police cover their ass?
Did Jesus rapture Pollard?
How is Jesus now?

"Problem with that stu is now you put in the hands of whatever elected people incredible power like passing a law to limit your free speech or press."

Except in practice it doesn't work like that, not here in the UK at least. For example, we argue about the bias of our broadcast media and each side thinks it's biased against them, which means in practice it's probably relatively balanced. It's because the public are so vociferous about broadcast media bias that any bias is called out immediately: a positive for social media.

An unwritten constitution means society operates under a broad consensus unencumbered by the dogma of a document written by people long dead who could not have imagined the world we live in today. This consensus isn't perfect and a glance below the line here on Mudcat shows how UK folk discuss, debate and argue (sometimes very robustly, sometimes poorly) constantly but that is in a way a microcosm of the way our society works.

interesting. i suppose my first reaction is to say 'why would an idiot like me who finds restringing a rickenbacker a logistical nightmare have the answer to such a complicated question?'

the second reaction though is to think...well in England we have hundreds of anachronistic laws we've never bothered repealing - driving ducks actoss westmister bridge, every yeoman having to practice archery, every gentleman having to carry a sword. we'd be a nation of sword carrying, duck driving loonies - always asking for a day off work to practice archery.

in fact , I suspect in America as well - we just let our common sense prevail and quietly forget the daft stuff.

is it really the demands of the written constitution, or is it the armament companies acting like irresponsible idiots who have caused this present situation where 20 odd thousand people are killed every year quite needlessly?

The handful of nations without a constitution are just as vulnerable to Corporate take overs as nations that have a Constitution like the US.

I have been ever opposed to Corporatism because I believe them desirous of introducing, into our government, authorities hereditary or otherwise independent of the national will. They always consume the public contributions and oppress the people with labour & poverty.
Corporations like the NRA have held Congress hostage and the will of the people ignored.

Stu's point is as academic as it gets here. It is a valid debate. Hell even slavery is not a finalized debate these days.

A written constitution doesn't move with the times as the gun laws amply demonstrate. You end up with anachronisms like the right to bear arms that are either interpreted differently by different people (people being people) or used in a way it was never meant to, to justify horrors and legitimise the agendas of groups and individuals that are not interested in the common good.

Also, it's roundly ignored. First amendment? Not if you're black and taking the knee, then you're insulting the flag. The VP can piss away hundreds of thousands of dollars of taxpayers money simply to make the point of a foul liar of a man who sent him on a mission to subvert that very amendment.

The flexibility of an unwritten constitution is preferable, allowing a society to adapt to changes in the wider world as well as things like technology and a million other factors. Societies must move with the times.

Despite my loathing of guns and gun-nuts, I do understand that there are reasons why **some** civilians might **need** a gun - protection against dangerous wild-life, vermin-control, yadda yadda. Different countries, different circumstances.

But, in general, I stand by what I said - the vast majority of gun-owners don't actually need a gun, except in their paranoid imaginations.

Imagine someone has purchased 35 guns pistols weapons etc.
Imagine now the imagination of the mind who bought multiple weapons.
There are dreams, scenarios, secret ambitions , private motivating thoughts, Disgusting things you would want to know.
Maybe he see himself a hero a vengeful anti hero, a villain, in a war, winning a war, Shooting the FBI, shooting the president of the government, who knows?

All of those mental images are personal motivating thoughts or he wouldn't keep buying more guns, hoping he'll get that special feeling again. Sound like an addiction? They do not often end well.

"The US has a rich history of adding and abolishing amendments."

Really Donuel? Here is a brief summary of that "rich history" from 1789 to 2014:

11,539 proposed amendments have been introduced of which only 33 got anywhere. Of those 33 proposed amendments 27 have been ratified by the requisite number of states (But as two of these cancel one another out that only makes 25 amendments that are in force), 4 proposed amendments are technically open and still pending, one is closed and has failed by its own terms, and one is closed and has failed by the terms of the resolution proposing it. So in 225 years out of 11,539 amendments you've managed to pass 25 of them, or 0.23% of all those proposed - A rich history indeed - One of almost complete and utter inaction.

That is the next DC debate.

He did not have tracers. The Gun Store was out of stock.

The Vegas hotels are used to allowing people to bring dozens of guns and ammo into their lobbies and rooms. Vegas is famous for having gun shows that sell guns privately without any regulations about 2 to 3 times a month. Vegas gun shows are considered entertainment and are as common as dirt. There are 2 major gun shows that are continuous and some minor ones outside the strip.

Hotels are happy to oblige.

Of course you can try to start somewhere and the measures mentioned in passing by olddude would be a good start - how that goes about changing the perceived notion that one has to be capable of defending oneself against your own government and the mistrust and belief that your own government is going to attack you is going to be a "North face of the Eiger" type climb in a country riven by schisms, some of whom date back to it's conception.

So while you may make a start, realise the scale and magnitude of the problem (And that is only taking registered firearms into account) and resign yourselves to the fact that this sort of atrocity will be repeated in the future time and time again as if ever there was one - this is most definitely a case of shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted.

I had actually been wondering:

How many of the dead were shot, rather than died because there was a shooting going on (shrapnel, trampling, etc)?

How many of the injured were shot, rather than injured by shrapnel or from themselves or others trying to get away from the shooter?

I had a talk with an EMT gun enthusiast friend of mine, and he said you can't aim with a bumper stock, so we thought maybe of the injured (500ish) 150 shot 50 shrapnel 300 other injuries, and of the dead, higher proportion shot, maybe 45. Total guess. What do other gun or EMT experts say?

Why is there a perceived need for the type of guns that olddude objects to? Two reasons, the wording of your second amendment and the rather mystifying truth that it would appear that Americans just simply do not trust their Government (If the Army and National Guard units have automatic or semi-automatic weapons, then I too must have those types of weapons to allow me to defend myself).

Make it harder to buy and own a gun? - Impossible in a country that already has more "licenced/registered" guns than people (112.2 guns for every 100 people in the country). The number of unlicenced and unregistered firearms will be staggering and among those you will have all the "war souvenirs" dating back to WWI.

But companies like Red Jacket made military style semi autos to appeal to the pockets of 'regular guys' who wanted the latest and best TV endorsed status symbol guns to show off to their drinking buddies,
and make as much recreational mayhem as possible blasting melons and water buckets etc
out in the back yards and woods....

Loud fast assault rifles to shoot up the cardboard cut outs of bin laden with a truck full of 6 pack beers...

Fun.. but stupidly socially irresponsible, and potentially deadly in the wrong hands

Like getting the loudest Marshall amp and Les Paul to rock out the neighbourhood from your garage...

or a mad customised harley, or muscle car..

Big brash toys for macho knucleheads.... ??
