"President Trump is visiting Las Vegas on Wednesday, he spoke this morning, said hes praying for those who lost their lives. You know in February, he also signed a bill that made it easier for people with severe mental illness to buy guns legally," Kimmel said in his monologue. "Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, a number of other lawmakers who wont do anything about this because the NRA has their balls in a money clip, also sent their thoughts and their prayers today, which is good. They should be praying. They should be praying for God to forgive them for letting the gun lobby run this country, because it's so crazy."

I said to my wife this morning about the Vegas shootings ,that the liberal's and liberal biased media will find some way to blame this on Trump and the republican party. Suprising, huh?

If you are saying that many Democrats are responsible as well, I would agree with you. That doesn't change the fact that Trump "signed a bill that made it easier for people with severe mental illness to buy guns legally." He needs to be called out for that. Thank You, Jimmy.

No one has done anything. But when you're in charge, like a head coach, you get the blame. And no one is expecting the Republicans-led House to do anything. Conservative media host and all around creep Bill O'Reilly has already claimed that getting mowed down at a concert is "the cost of freedom". Padded room escapee Alex Jones was quick to say, like Sandy Hook, the whole thing was scripted. So the knuckleheads who sleep with automatic weapons of mass slaughter under their pillow and care more about an embryo than a grown human standing in a crowd will make sure nothing happens in response to this tragedy.

But you go right on ahead and make Trump the victim here. I think we're all used to that.

Did not say that, I just knew it was coming. It was expected. I am surprised he has not been blamed for the Hurricanes as of late.

Did not make him a victim, don't assume things, we know what that leads to. I could careless either way if people beat him up in the media .Just knew it was coming, kind of par for the course.

So you pivoting a tragedy to Trump receiving blame isn't making him a victim (of false blame)? Because that's exactly what you said, I didn't have to assume anything.

Nothing worse than when you're walking down the street and some nut job sprays the crowd with rounds of smokes and beers. Good point!

But you're right, there is no way to amend the Constitution or interpret it in response to a repeated cycle of slaughter. Especially when other countries manage to retain gun ownership with restrictions yet without repeated deaths of innocent citizens. Let's just file this incident away until the next one so people can legally own military weapons. **** happens, you know?

I would love for Rydethewind to stick around and answer some questions but something tells me he doesn't have enough wits to back up his thoughts. My question for the anti-gun control crowd - if he is a "sick idiot maniac" and "not a normal person", as Rydethewind states, then why let these types buy a gun? Shouldn't a "sick idiot maniac" be forced to take on greater risks to carry out his evil, like research and buy bomb-making materials so the FBI might get to him first, or buy guns on the black market and risk getting robbed? Why should a "sick idiot maniac" simply fill out a form and be handed a gun? I just picture our small towns or row home communities where everyone knows one another, and the local gun shop worker seeing his deranged bipolar neighbor coming in to buy a gun - "Dag gummit, this sick idiot maniac is not worthy of operating a firearm, but here you go!"

Boyton.. do you or anyone you know walk around with a sign hanging around your neck saying you are a sicko idiot? many people live law abiding lives then one day a crisis or illness makes them snap or loose their sanity how can any law stop that from happening? if they don't have guns they use trucks, or fertilizer bombs or whatever... that was my point and yet still no one says anything about 1200 lives each day lost to tobacco now that is insanity!

Boy talk about a disconnected....those who die from tobacco choose to smoke it and there is more information available to tell them not to....

I do believe less people in the US smoke now then when I was a kid....most likely from being educated about its hazards...but the hazards of another who takes lives doesn't bother you....1.3 killed in wars 1.5 killed by gun violence it not one incident

PS no one wants your hunting rifle....but not one person needs a military grade weapon other than a soldier in our military

Filling your own lungs with smoke is a choice, unlike getting shot to death by someone else at a concert. Kind of insane you're comparing the two.

It's true that every time you leave your house there is a chance that someone else can take your life, intentionally or accidentally. We have many regulations on dangerous items and substances to keep us and our neighbors safe. That's why automatic guns are rare and rarely used in crimes - they are strictly regulated. Heavily regulating and controlling semi-automatic weapons would likely have the same effect.

Out police forces conduct psychological exams as the last part of the recruitment process to determine if they are fit to be a cop and handle a weapon. Why do they do that? We can't prevent mass shootings but we CAN decrease the frequency of them and the number of fatalities in each.

A truck couldn't get to that crowd, nor would it have killed 58 and injure 200 even if it could. Can you please address this aspect? It's about making it as difficult as possible for them to execute their evil - it shouldn't be so easy and risk-free. And you might want to use a different analogy to make your point, instead of an illegal WMD like fertilizer bombs. That doesn't help your cause.

You never heard any anti-smoking campaigns? Really?

Look, the bottom line is that I have a deep respect for a firearm. I love guns and I'm grateful that I live in a country where I can own one to protect my family. I respect them so much, that I think only the best Americans deserve the privilege of owning one (and yes, I think it should be a privilege, not a right). Only our nation's best law-abiding, responsible, sane, good people deserve one. The local idiot who doesn't know how to shoot, can't reload, doesn't understand the safety clip, leaves it unlocked, etc......DOESN'T DESERVE ONE. Anyone who wants to own should first prove their responsibility, safety, criminal history, and mental stability. If you can't prove those 4 things, then why are we giving one to them? Because some are afraid they won't be able to prove it, so we give them to everyone so nobody feels bad and has to step up. And these same people are against participation trophies for kids sports.

Jimmy could do his show from Chicago to raise the issue about out of control gun recklessness day after day until some results are shown. This is as big if not bigger issue than a lone wolf shooter. It would also highlight the issue that most criminals dont care about gun laws.

Funny how gun lovers like to talk about Chicago, pointing out strict gun laws and lots of gun violence. The problem is that Chicago used to have strict gun laws, but they don't anymore. Chicago used to ban handguns, which is why they got the reputation for strict gun laws. But the Supreme Court overturned that law several years ago. In addition, Illinois was the last state to allow concealed carry just a couple years ago. I'll give you one guess as to when the spike in gun violence started.

The people that say, "you will never be able to prevent someone who snapped from hurting people," are exactly right. HOWEVER, why then do we leave the most common and simple way of doing that on a large scale so easily accessible?

Almost anybody can figure out how to point a gun and squeeze the trigger (it's just like a video game). Not that many (in a fit of mental insanity, especially) can go through all the steps of building a successful bomb on a truck.

But, if someone flips out and they already own multiple machine guns, it is pretty easy to go out and hurt a lot of people.

We have had bombings, but we do not have an epidemic of bombings. We have had car attacks, but we do not have an epidemic of car attacks. It is hard to hurt 600 people in an acid attack. It is hard to hurt 600 people in a knife attack. It would be hard to hurt 600 people by throwing hammers out of a 32nd story window before the cops can kill you. There a very few ways to do this much damage while you are committing suicide without machine guns.

Reasonable gun policy is not the "beginning of confiscating all guns" anymore than security checks at airports is the end of airplanes. It is simply doing something to address a deadly problem, INSTEAD OF DOING NOTHING.

There is a constitutional right to "bear arms" and we can continue to debate what was meant by that, but suggesting that James Madison was talking about machine guns is pretty flimsy.

Giving up something that you enjoy for the betterment of society is called civilization...
