    Worst massacre in USA History.

    Las Vegas shooting: 50 people killed in Mandalay Bay attack - BBC News

    Absolutely unbelievable what this man has done , 50 dead ?
    Will they ever find out why, what made him flip and start gunning down complete strangers.

    We have friends out in Vegas at the moment just hope there were not involved?
    The way things are going we will not be safe to travel anywhere ....Taffy

    Our friends too have been back for a couple of weeks and always go to these country festivals, The mind boggles as to what the gunman was thinking. I have seen some footage on FB and it looks terrifying, My prayers and thoughts to all the victims and their loved ones. Jan.

      It is so shocking to hear about. My goddaughter was at that same festival a few years ago and had had a great time. There must be so many families going out of their minds with worry about loved ones. We are so heartbroken for them ! Unfortunately my fellow countrymen will not give up,their weapons readily. I can't understand why assault rifles and automatic weapons are available to buy by anyone and everyone. Unfortunately the NRA will keep droning on its mantra of 'guns don't kill people, people kill people ' and absolutely nothing will change in terms of gun control in America.

      Take care, Helen

        Just watching SKY news and one young lady saying that a Hispanic couple were escorted out of the concert after telling people "you are going to die" that was 45 minutes before the shooting?
        The gun shots sound like an automatic machine gun type , quite rapid fire , just the thing you need to protect yourself.
        They can buy some series gun's in America...Taffy

          More guns than cars, more gun crime than anywhere else, and still the penny hasn't dropped.

            Don't want to insult or belittle all those who were killed or injured but 99% of Americans will not give up the 2nd amendment or even change it, all you have to do is listen to them it's their God given right to bare arms. And I can guarantee that this latest outrage will change nothing mores the pity. As someone has said the NRA and money will make sure nothing will change, look what happened to Obama when he tried so we will just forget it until the next one in about 6/8 months time and all the same questions are asked again.

              Oh it has dropped but too many people are making too much money from guns?

                Latest poll showed a 52% for the importance of protecting the right to own guns against 42% in favour for more gun control.

                  This is does not surprise me in the least. These are also the people who voted for Trump. Need I say more? I despair for my country!

                    It's all so senseless. So far only a couple of congressmen have spoken up against the NRA , or at least, on the news they only showed two.

                    Such a terrible tragedy again . There are no words ...

                      I suppose this is the problem of having a democratic system a idiot can get in and have his finger on the button look what we have an another idiot in waiting to be PM and a PM who changes her mind from one day to the next.

                        Hi Helen.
                        Even if by some miracle the gun control laws are changed and become far more stringent, it'll be closing the stable door after the horse has bolted won't it?

                        Cheers OSD

                          The share price of the gun manufacturers rose today.

                            I'm sure it has Annie. These same manufacturers will then pay their lobbyists to bully congress to keep the status quo. Even if this particular barn door could be closed there is that much ordinance out there that another nutter somewhere could inflict even worse carnage at a school, hospital, concert or any other place.

                              Same as after the school shooting, the gun manufacturers sell more as they buy more guns in case there are any new restrictions
