A year after the Las Vegas shooting -- one of the single largest mass shooter incidents in American history -- authorities are still digging, trying to find out why a gunman opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest Festival, killing 58 people and wounding more than 850.

Motive was simple. Create panic. Destroy America. End freedom to own a gun. Total control of the state over everything.
Now they want to take our guns away . That would be just fine. Take em away from the criminals first . Ill gladly give u mine. "Charlie Daniels"

That's your opinion. There's no manifesto or any other sort of evidence that points to this.

No, but there sure is a series of patterns that points to such a possibility. But most people lack the ability to recognize patterns.

My condolences to the Families & Friends who lost loved ones in this senseless tragedy.
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Just amazes me that people blindly believe stuff like this. Just far too "perfect" of a delusional characterization of what a lefty thinks is a "right wing extremist".

Bowers' full motive is still unknown. The social media site Gab.com said the alleged shooter had a profile on its website, which is popular with far-right extremists. The company said the account was verified after the shooting and matched the name of the gunman.

A man with the same name posted on Gab before the shooting that "HIAS likes to bring invaders in that kill our people. I can't sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I'm going in."

HIAS is a non-profit group that helps refugees around the world find safety and freedom. The organization says it is guided by Jewish values and history.

Bowers also recently posted a photo of a collection of three semi-automatic handguns he titled "my glock family," a reference to the firearms manufacturer. He also posted photos of bullet holes in person-sized targets at a firing range, touting the "amazing trigger" on a handgun he was offering for sale.


Of course, gotta push some gun control!

The shooting also immediately reignited the longstanding national debate about guns: President Donald Trump said the outcome might have been different if the synagogue "had some kind of protection" from an armed guard, while Pennsylvania's Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf noted that once again "dangerous weapons are putting our citizens in harm's way."


Hitting every exaggerated, *bleep* preconception people on the left side of the political spectrum would have for those on the right. Just seems far, far too convenient of a narrative just before the mid terms. I just have such an overwhelming sense that this is total *bleep*, but I guess I'm just uneducated and nuts. Some sorta ic, ist, or phobe I guess.

Yeah, the fact a right wing extremist had access to an AR 15 style rifle isn't the reason this happened, that would be too simple. Must be the Democrats fault. :up:

Actually yes, it is too simple. Because an "AR-15 style rifle" is just like any old semi automatic ( one pull one bang ) rifle, just looks scarier. So guess you gotta ban guns all together because you can't really get any less than semi automatic unless you go back to flintlocks and muskets. Only problem is that isn't gonna stop anyone that wants a gun badly enough, because there will always be a black market.


We should ban high quality kitchen knives with composite handles because they look sleek and intimidating and someone might use one to hurt people.


I will say though, that if this guy had a record of being mentally unstable then yeah maybe he shouldn't have had access to fire arms.

Any other dialogue options for me to choose from that aren't just a generic liberal talking point? Non player characters suck.

Make way for more insecure pussies obsessed with their guns. Cowards who live their lives in fear, fear of their neighbours, fear of the government, fear of everything, but most of all fear that they’ll lose their fear-busting one button ranged murder machine penis extenders.

Armed resistance against the criminals/wannabe criminals and those that lobby on their behalf for a disarmed populace and safer working conditions for miscreants. For all those that fear meeting someone with a firearm as they climb thru a window, or kick in a door, etc, around the witching hour, the Liberal Socialist Party has your back.

Just a bunch of cowards. Guns have two purposes:
1) Murder/Killing
2) compensating for insecurity, brought on either by paranoia or small penises.

For people like Robert Bower who bragged about his “glock family” online before running into a synagogue shouting “All Jews must die” murdering 10 people at a baby naming ceremony it was the former. With likely a fair amount of the 2nd gun reason thrown in as well.

For the gun nuts on these forums I sincerely hope it is only the second gun reason.
