Posted September 13, 2018 04:15:25 It’s hard to believe that the Las, Vegas shooting only happened in the last week of the summer.
Yet that is exactly what happened.
Las Vegas had just undergone a massive and successful gun control measure known as the Mandalay Bay, which banned the sale of guns and allowed visitors to be checked into hotels without being fingerprinted.
On Wednesday, the city began to implement its own restrictions, requiring residents to submit to fingerprinting and providing a photo ID.
There’s little doubt that the massacre would have made national headlines, had it not been for a national gun debate that started just as the city was under lockdown.
As of Wednesday, there were at least five mass shootings across the country, including one in Texas that left five dead.
There have been a handful of public protests around the country over the issue.
But for the majority of Americans, the question is whether a mass shooting should be allowed to occur.
The answer, it turns out, is a resounding no.
As many as a third of Americans think that a mass shooter should not be allowed into the country.
And when we look at the data, it is clear that people want a gun debate to be about public safety.
People want to hear about the threat posed by violent criminals.
And they want to know if the people who own guns in their homes are protecting themselves and their families from an imminent threat.
People do not want to see gun violence stop, even if it means the loss of lives.
But the National Rifle Association and the National Sheriffs Association, both of which have been fighting for gun control measures in recent years, have a different agenda.
They want to prevent mass shootings from occurring in the first place.
They think that mass shootings are the greatest danger to the country because they are so easily preventable, and they believe that a large number of Americans should have guns in the home to prevent future tragedies.
They are correct.
But, as with the mass shootings, we don’t have to go back to the days of the Columbine shooting in 1999 to see how dangerous these measures can be.
The Columbine case has been a wakeup call to the NRA and the NRA’s allies.
The public should be more concerned about mass shootings than they are about mass gun control.
The first mass shooting that the NRA did in the U.S. was in the 1980s, when a man walked into a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, and opened fire.
The gunman killed 12 people and injured 58 others.
The NRA was quick to denounce the Aurora shooting and blamed lax gun control laws for the failure of the government to stop the shooter.
But there was another tragedy in the American gun-owning community during the same time period.
In 1998, the Aurora, Colo., Police Department began a program to check gun owners for illegal weapons.
This program was expanded to include other localities and states throughout the U, including Illinois, California, New York, Texas, and Arizona.
As the gun-control debate moved to national politics, the NRA began a campaign to convince people to accept its position on gun control that it had never once had.
The argument was simple: The government has a responsibility to protect people from potential threats.
The more guns, the better.
And gun control, they argued, made it easier for terrorists to get guns.
It made it harder for criminals to get weapons.
And it made it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves.
And that is what led to the Columbines, the Sandy Hooks, the Virginia Techs, and the countless other mass shootings that have plagued our country since.
When a mass murder occurs, we often wonder how we can prevent a similar tragedy.
We wonder whether we can stop the next mass shooting, or the next shooter, or even the next shooting in the future.
But we don, because mass shootings occur almost daily in the United States, and because we know that mass shooting incidents are almost always preventable.
A survey released this week by the Pew Research Center found that only 18 percent of Americans support universal background checks, compared to 70 percent of Republicans and 81 percent of Democrats.
And even among Republicans, nearly half of Republicans, 49 percent, support universal checks.
Even among Democrats, nearly two-thirds, 65 percent, back universal background check laws.
And these numbers only represent the opinions of Americans who are either Republicans or Democrats.
The vast majority of people around the world are also in favor of universal background checking, with majorities in almost every country surveyed by Pew finding that people should be able to check a gun if they feel like doing so.
Yet, when it comes to gun control in the states, most Americans have no idea that they have the ability to do so.
They just assume that the law must be on their side.
For example, in a recent poll, almost 60 percent of Californians said that it is important to prevent people from owning guns
