Thoughts & Prayers

Nothing to do with scrapping today. I just have to pass on my thoughts & prayers to all of the victims and families of the horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas. How does something like this happen? How does someone get to the point in their life that they would do something like this, especially to innocent people?

I do not like guns and although I do not live in the US I have always thought that their gun laws were not tough enough. You don't hear about mass shootings like this in Canada. It seems that anyone can get a gun these days in the US. I believe it was Michael Moore who wrote about how in one town in the US a bank was offering a free gun for opening up an account at their bank. Seriously?

The 64 yr old man responsible for this shooting apparently brought 10 suitcases with 23 guns. These weren't just hand guns, these were powerful automatic weapons that are designed to continuously fire ammunition with just one pull of the trigger. The victims of this shooting were like pigs waiting for slaughter as they were all fenced in for this open air concert when the man opened fire from his room at the Mandalay Bay hotel which was located diagonally across the street!

Yes so I know that in the US everyone has the right to bear arms for their personal protection. Having a hand gun for your protection is one thing but no one needs a AK47 for personal protection! The gun laws in the US need to change and it needs to be done now!

Please check out Jimmy Kimmel's remarks on this horrific shooting.
