    What laws were broken by the guy in Las Vegas who killed 58 people at an outdoor music show? What laws should have been enforced that would have stopped this carnage? This idea that existing laws are enough and just need to be enforced is a tired dodge of responsibility. The article (nor my understanding) tells of no law that was broken by this perpetrator in Las Vegas.
    We need a law that bans the bump stock modification that makes a machine gun out of an otherwise constitutional semi automatic weapon. Not that we need semi automatic weapons on the street, but others have mis-interpreted the 2nd amendment to allow that, but I digress . . .
    No citizen needs a machine gun on the street, only soldiers on the battle field need that. We need to shut down the shop in Texas that makes these so called bump stock mods.

    Gun laws are paper thin if you can get through loopholes in a neighboring state. We need consistency across the US.

    We have to teach kids and adults not to hate and how to deal with their anger. Also, make affordable mental health services available to everyone that needs them.
