Only on this site would they try to put part of the blame on the venue for not allowing guns in the venue itself, simply unbelievable, in the UK we would actually believe this was a satirical joke, on here however it is actually a serious news article

Gun control is not a gun ban. Just like the travel ban wasn’t a Muslim ban. We need gun CONTROL. That’s not to say it should be illegal to carry… The arguments take us nowhere. Are we screwed? ðŸ˜¥

 Imagine hundreds or thousands of people in the audience had been carrying firearms. When the shooting starts and due to loud music and flashing light shows nobody really knows where it is coming from what are the chances people draw their weapons and start shooting each other instead of helping each other.

 Yes i’m sure the Constitution said carry 24 machine guns and kill people at concerts,schools and churches. No one is taking your guns away. Will you justify having a nuclear bomb as well?

 How were they going to protect themselves….shoot up into the motel….while someone nutcase was spraying 60 rounds a min down on a crowd…More would have ended up dead from cross fire

These people were sitting ducks, unfortunately. ..I’m all for carrying firearms, but a handgun would have made no difference in this situation…trying to shoot a sniper from that range with a handgun would have been more likely hitting neighboring hotel rooms with innocent people…the main issue was no cover, trying to exit among panic and chaos and someone flipped on the concert lights so the gunman had an even better view of his victims. No one was prepared for this, but there were many things done wrong
