Over a thousand shots so hardly surprising.

Won't make the gun lobby budge though. What would they say? Everybody just needed a gun.

Ye Gods - over 50 killed and 400 shot.

And the cowardly piece of crap killed himself before he could be captured.

IS are apparently "claiming" it though the apparent shooter was a white man in his 60s. Authorities say it's not being treated as "terrorism" so presumably no known far-right motive either.

I dont know how it could have been prevented.

So far, investigators believe the firearms were purchased legally.

FMD!!! Shocked

I guess a drum magazine machine gun will do that.

Fark the USA. Trump and his sick ilk deserve what they get.

All the lefties agree.

Surrey cricketers Jade Dernbach and Stuart Meaker were in Vegas for their joint stag do, along with team mate Tom Curran - staying in the same hotel where the nutter was shooting from.

59 dead and 527 injured, yet we still don't have a motive.


Predictably the comment is that it is mental illness, not guns which are to blame. Surely without the guns the mental illness suffered by one man doesn't have to end in massacre.

Dreadful. POTARSE did not mention guns.

Maybe the bloke did not like C&W.

Expect there's be a host of C&W merchants already composing memorial tunes.

Mass shooting tracker. The scary part is that the most of the shooters are unknown.

I guess when you consider that Texas has the laxest gun laws (i.e. basically none) in the US, it's hardly surprising that some nut gets hold of a semi-automatic. Rolling Eyes

Fifty years ago Kinky Friedman wrote, "the ballad of Charles Whitman" which describes a mass shooting. If interested the song can be uploaded.

i'd gone to Austin a while ago for some work at the Uni. Saw the place where Whitman murdered all those folks. It was quite disconcerting looking at that pleasant academic environment, and then imagining people being shot to pieces all around you.

Seems the shooter was a weird loner with a grudge against the church.

Sounds like exactly the right sort of person who should have an assault rifle.

Aye, the background checks confirmed that.

Watched a bit of the coverage. Every polly and most hack journos made a point they were praying for victims and their families. Fat lot of good that does. Religion and xenophobia remain a pretext for violence in most parts of the planet. The failure of the Seppos to address gun control and religioids will remain ongoing.
