Steven Singer says nothing will change after the slaughter in Las Vegas. The National Rifle Association owns enough Congressmen to loosen gun regulations, to tighten them. Trump loves the NRA. He was the first president to address them.

What if everyone in the crowd were carrying their own AK-47? How would that have stopped the slaughter?

Steven writes:

“Wake up, America.

“We are not the land of the brave or the home of the free.

“We are the land of the gun and the home of the free market.

“Stephen Paddock’s killing spree last night in Las Vegas will not change anything – except the bottom line for numerous gun manufacturers.

“Ca-ching, people!

“Scores of American companies are going to clean up over this!

“That’s what happens every time we get a high profile mass shooting.

“Not new gun regulation. Not additional services for the mentally ill. Not stricter guidelines against fake news on social media.

“Just tons of money pouring into gun manufacturers pockets as firearm aficionados rush to buy as many additional pieces as they can in the fear that tomorrow the government will come for their guns.

“You think this has anything to do with the Second Amendment or the right to bear arms?


“It’s about putting business over humanity. It’s about our culture of death overtaking everything else.

“Look at the facts.

“A 64-year-old retiree used a cache of almost 20 guns to spray bullets on a crowd of concertgoers. He killed at least 58 people [59 at last count] and wounded more than 500 others.

“To do so, police say he had at least one fully-automatic rifle, an AR-15-style and AK-47-style rifle, more than a dozen additional firearms, and a ton of ammunition.

“Any sane society that values human life would do something to stop things like this from happening again.

“It is almost impossible to inflict this kind of death toll in such a short time without these types of firearms.

“It’s the guns, stupid!”
