It seriously is a ****** up joint over there in America. They need to get their own house in order before telling the rest of the world what to do.

Just terrible and so damn sad and senseless:'(

I'm sure the NRA is ready to play the 'if only we didn't make it so hard for good guys to carry guns' card.

Some of those shot (but not killed) were armed off-duty policemen. I'd say it might be a bit harder than normal as a result but I'm sure it won't be, given their complete lack of respect for human life.

If they didn't change their gun laws after a pre-school was shot up and kids were killed then I suspect they never will. The debate ended for me after that.

What about the significant percentage that insist that that never happened and it was just a conspiracy to get at their guns? Disgusting.

It is madness but it is completely and utterly entrenched within their society and culture.

Not to worry Trump has tweeted his, and I quote, "warmest condolences" to the victims. All g.

Shooter was a white guy. Will be put down to mental illness, not terrorism. Probably suffering economic anxiety or something.

They certainly honed in on the guy quickly and which room he was in......seems there was an Aussie in the next room. A few Gold Coasters thereabouts too.

You missed the bit that he'll also be a card carrying Democrat, because every mass shooting in the USA has been carried out by signed up Democrat (supposedly).

Yeah, that was bloody grim. That was when it was normalised sadly. Would take some insane event to get enough people in both houses of congress & presidency to take meaningful action now. Impossible to even get enough states to slightly amend the 2nd amendment.

If 50+ killed and 400+ people injured doesn't count as an insane event, I don't know what does.

Currently listening to a news reporter and the reporter mentioned that the 400+ injured are those who were transported by ambulances and emergency services vehicles. It does not include people transported to hospitals in private vehicles.

You're right. Should be insane, but it's been so bloody normalised now :(

Just heartbreaking stuff since it's so entirely avoidable. Going to be even worse when we wake up. Good grief.

Apparently there is a bill being passed at the moment which will make it far easier for people to buy silencers.

According to my understanding isn't Terrorism designed to further a religious, political or ideological cause? They haven't found any yet.

Going on the information we have now it is a little distracting this whole focus on terrorism. The focus should be on the fact that the only thing stopping someone from potentially murdering hundreds in 5 or 10 minutes is the individual. If someone wants to kill as many as they can it is open to them to do that.

If a loophole is found in any other area of society as it relates to public health, safety and wellbeing it is closed quickly. In the context of firearms they are good Ng in the opposite direction. I find it completely and utterly insane.
