Things I Learned After Vegas

Looks like everybody is a firearms, ethics, law enforcement, and mass shooting expert today. One day after a twisted savage murdered nearly 60 people and wounded more than 500 more, I’ve learned some fascinating things in my conversations with lib-progs. I’m not making light of the tragedy that occurred Sunday, I promise. But I do think it’s appropriate to highlight the crazy in leftist thinking, as they work to politicize the hell out of the massacre to relieve us of our rights.

Did you know, for instance, that only police should have these “assault” weapons meant to kill large numbers of people, and it’s not at all contradictory to participate in mass protests against police brutality and support ungrateful, spoiled NFL millionaires in their degrading virtue signaling?

I also found out today that if you support Americans’ Second Amendment rights, you support criminals and psychos committing massacres. What? You didn’t get the memo?

Also, apparently killing a fetus in utero is a matter of “privacy rights,” but violating doctor/patient privilege and providing mental health information to random government agencies is not. Also, we apparently must implement more gun control “for the children,” but keep the option of killing as many of them as possible through abortion “free” and widely-available.

Did you know that liberals are the kind and tolerant ones? No, really. Only if you are a liberal, a socialist, a Marxist, a communist, or any other kind of statist. Everyone else… yeah, screw you. Hope you die.

Did you know that ONLY government agents need guns? Because Waco, Wounded Knee, My Lai, the Holocaust, Screbrenica, and stuff never happened.

We also need MOAR background checks, because the Vegas shooter passed all background checks.

I also learned that if you believe that owning firearms is a right, but forcing someone to give away their labor and efforts to provide “free” health care is unethical, you’re a NAZI!

And flash suppressors should be illegal because it made it harder to find the shooter. It took police all of 17 minutes to find him and get up to the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel. During a packed concert. In all the confusion and panic.

So should sound suppressors, by the way, because taking sound down from around 170 decibels to around 130 decibels will make the shot magically inaudible to human ears and only detectable by dogs.

I also learned that the Bill of Rights apparently doesn’t apply when there’s a tragedy in which someone abuses those rights. So everyone must be deprived of their rights to ensure that criminals obey the law… or something.

I also learned that if I vet my sources well enough and don’t believe all the craptastic piles of “false flag” bovine excrement peddled by the likes of Alex Jones, I’m apparently just not “woke” enough.

And finally, I learned that if your first thought after this tragedy is about the shooter’s religion (he’s probably a Muslim), you’re not even a human being, let alone a decent one. But if you immediately call for gun control and politicize the issue, you’re a caring human being.

Oh, and anyone who disagrees with the left on gun control is a racist.

    I think it took them a lot longer to respond, overall. This massacre went on for over an hour. It did take them less than 20 minutes to find which room he was in – which they found because the smoke sensor went off. But they certainly didn’t take care of things within 20 minutes of the first shots.

  • Nicki says:


    At approximately 10:08 p.m. PDT on October 1, 2017, an assailant began firing from an elevated floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel into the crowd attending the festival, 390 yards (360 meters) across South Las Vegas Boulevard. The gunfire continued intermittently for around ten minutes.

    By around 10:25 pm, a group of officers had reached the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel, and locked down the floor.

    • GWB says:

      Timelines are finally starting to appear. Yes, it looks like the actual massacre was only 20 minutes or so.

      I stand corrected.

      (The 72 minutes appears to include a lengthy period after he shot himself, while they tried to gain entrance, and eventually secure the room.)

  • Drew458 says:

    And yet, plenty of news sites and newspapers, even several right leaning ones, were reporting yesterday it took 72 minutes from the first 911 call to securing the hotel room. Less than 20 minutes to find the guy once the cops got to the hotel, because of the smoke alarm going off.

    I don’t know what to believe anymore, and that’s really bothersome.

    • Drew458 says:

      And eventually the whole story comes together … Mandalay security guy Jesus Campos located the shooter’s room quickly, got shot in the leg through the door. Wounded, he called hotel security dispatch, who got other cops there in minutes. They got shot at too. They pulled back and waited for SWAT, which took an hour, but the shooter killed himself right after the earlier cops got there. So 12-ish minutes is correct, the time to locate the room and get the shooter to stop shooting (aka suicide). And 72 minutes is correct, that’s how long from 1st 911 call to SWAT breaching the door and securing the room. It takes a few days to get all the facts out, and lined up. Patience required.

  • The likes of “I am Cassie” are one reason I turned from gun control supporter to reluctant 2nd Amendment supporter.

    And she clearly wants me to vote for Trump in 2020 😉

      Welcome to the side of Constitutional supporters. You will find us a much happier and contented lot, and much easier to understand, as this side does not regularly engage in the mental gymnastics required to reconcile contradictory positions on multiple topics. Also, I think you will find us much more tolerant of varying viewpoints on given issues, and much more open to facts.
      Once again, Welcome!
