There has Been a Mass Shooting in Las Vegas by The Elephant's Child

Two confirmed dead, many seriously wounded by a shooter on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Hotel, where there was a country music concert across the street from the hotel. The shooter had a fully automatic weapon with which he sprayed the crowd. You can’t buy those at your neighborhood gun store.

The shooter is dead, unidentified, but local. More than 100 are wounded, many seriously. Prompt police attention, careful statements. Too soon to know very much. More will become clear as the day rolls on. Evil people seem to like large concerts.

UPDATE: 59 dead. 527 to Hospital. Shooter killed himself, is local from Mesquite, high stakes gambler, 64 years old, no known connection to terrorism, although ISIS tried to claim credit. Worst mass shooting in U.S. history. Naturally all the left emerged to demand gun control, oblivious to the fact that it was the people operating the weapon who did the killing.

A gun is an inanimate object. Most of Europe has total gun control, and lots of mass shootings. For those who can’t get their hands on guns, knives are becoming popular to the extent that Britain is considering knife control laws. Will chefs then have to be licensed?  In Switzerland, I believe, every able-bodied young man has to be trained in the militia, including weapons training, and are expected to keep their weapons at home. Many hunt, as well.

Chicago, has some of the toughest gun laws in the country, and a lot of good that does them. They usually top the list of most killings any weekend.

Another monster, another Democrat:

Geary Danley, reportedly the murderer of at least 20 concertgoers in Las Vegas, from initial accounts was a far left loon. Per a review of his Facebook account he was a fan of Rachel Maddow, People’s Action, Democrats, MoveOn.org, etc…

So, will Democrats be telling their loon followers to calm down?

Footage of Vegas Attacker Stephen Paddock at an Anti-Trump Protest

If this turns out to be accurate, then the CBS lawyer who just got fired for her grotesque remarks pretty much nailed the motive.

For the Left, some outrageous comment gives permission for the next slightly more outrageous comment and so it escalates. Kathy Griffin gave permission for most anything. I understand how it works, I just can’t understand the animus. I thought Obama was a very bad president who made speeches promising good things, but I didn’t hate him and/or wish him dead. Ordinary Democrats keep threatening and wishing Trump dead. I just can’t remember this amount of animus ever before.

Report: “Bump Stocks” Found In Vegas Shooter’s Hotel Room

https://hotair.com/archives/2017/10/02/report-bump-stocks-found-vegas-shooters-hotel-room/

This is how a semi-auto (e.g. AR 15) is converted to a full automatic by replacing the stock of the rifle. It’s basically a work around to the full auto mechanism. Given the current restrictions on full auto weapons since 1930’s and 80’s, it’s hard to conceive this after market modification will be allowed to remain a legal loophole. Actually, I’m rather surprised it is legal since it is already illegal to modify a gun to become full auto.

Jimmy Kimmel Rant

http://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2017/10/03/jimmy-kimmel-vegas-republicans-praying-god-forgive/

Watching the morning news today I noticed that one station did a montage of late show hosts all following the same line of attack. This makes me think that Journolist is fully in operation coordinating responses for the liberal narrative.

I noticed that Republicans are the fodder for their grandstanding ire. One thing I have observed over the years is when liberals start beating the drums on one of their issues, it is because they are trying desperately to distract the public from sometime truly embarrassing for their cause. In this case, IF it is true that Stephen Paddock is a liberal as presumed by his participation at a women’s march, then they HAVE to scream as loud as possible to cover up this inconvenient fact.

If you will also notice, all the hate filled rhetoric has been coming from liberals of all stripes (celebs, pols and tv hosts) directed at Republicans. Is it any wonder that some of the borderline loon followers have acted on this hatred? Virtually all of the recent shootings have been by liberal mental loons other than Dillan Roof, a non liberal mental loon. Why is it that the vast majority of mentally ill loon shooters are liberal?

Watch the narrative:

NBC Reporter Falsely Claims We May Never Know What Motivated Scalise Shooter

http://americanlookout.com/nbc-reporter-falsely-claims-we-may-never-know-what-motivated-scalise-shooter-video/#ixzz4uTmgCTrA

Williams was discussing Sunday’s shooting in Las Vegas, and how the gunman’s motivation for the attack may never be completely known. Williams then tried to tie the Las Vegas shooting investigation to the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise (R., La.).
“It would not be unheard of if at the end of all this it remains a puzzle,” Williams said. “For example, just the recent shooting at the congressional baseball game here outside Washington, D.C. that wounded Steve Scalise and you know, was a devastating attack on that institution; the authorities can never say for sure what drove the gunman in that case.”

We know it was liberal Democrat in the Scalise shooting. So the dissembling has begun, as I suspected, the MSM insiders know Paddock’s political affiliation…

Yes of course, they follow the narrative, or talking points. I keep wondering if they just don’t bother to actually be informed about anything, because once they have their talking points, they can wallow in all the expressions for all the others on their side, and all their friends, of course, and it’s more comfortable to have everything you said repeated, and it feels so good to be on the right side and you don’t have to read a lot of unpleasant things that disagree.

The thing is that the narrative is established at once, and Republicans just sign on to their vocabulary because they haven’t thought of other words to disagree in. For example “Dreamers” “Through no fault of their own” “undocumented immigrants” –though ABC screwed up and called them “undocumented citizens” which went too far for the GOP establishment. But the GOPs seem not to realize that they are losing by using the language. I don’t know that the majority of Loons are liberal, though it does seem so, but perhaps Conservative loons are just naturally more responsible and trot off to the Psychiatrist before the go on a shooting rampage?

Also note that the claim Australia’s gun confiscation program brought positive results, is false, there continues to be mass shootings in that country.
