42 guns. It’s been said that the Las Vegas mass shooter owned 42 guns. Man, that sounds like a lot of guns doesn’t it? I get the second amendment arguments (I think). I just can’t help but ask…… why so many guns? As a Canadian growing up Toronto perhaps I’ll never understand.
42 guns. The second amendment speaks to a citizens right to keep and to bear arms. But, 42 guns? Just kinda seems like a lot of guns to me. Now you are talking to someone who has never hunted, never be in active duty, and never even been to a shooting range. I would like to try the shooting range at some point. Having said all that, 42 guns?
Like with most shootings, there are many perspectives including mental health, access to automatic weapons, the state of culture, and lastly the appetite of law makers to actually make changes given the heavy gun lobby influence. This blog wont’ answer all those questions.
I only ask the question, 42 guns? Sure seems like a lot of guns to me. Almost terroristic. Almost insurgent. Almost. Good thing he acted alone, one more person and he would be a terrorist huh?
Section 802 of the USA Patriot Act states:
I would say we are intimidated now wouldn’t you? The now empty Las Vegas strip can probably attest to that.
