Prayers and thoughts for victims and family members of the vegas shooting

Postby stricken » Mon Oct 02, 2017 6:31 am

Really wish this would stop happening however I'm afraid there is many more people standing on the edge of sanity than can be helped and that's sad.

Sending vibes for healing to everyone. Human beings are horrible creatures at times. :(

Horrible...just horrible...not that other tragedies of 1 or 2 deaths & fewer injured should be downplayed as every life is precisous, but 50 dead & 200 injured...wtf...

and yet...like post 911 thoughts of not going out of the house, etc....we must continue to live...to do & go see live music, sporting events...or whatever else takes us to our happy place...we must...

This Los Lobos song rings in my head today:

A quiet voice is singing something to me
An age old song 'bout the home of the brave in this land here of the free
One time one night in America

A lady dressed in white with the man she loves
Standing along the side of their pick up truck
A shot rang out in the night
Just when everything seemed right
Another headline written down in America

The guy that lived next door in three o five
Took the kids to the park and disappeared 'bout half past nine
Who will ever know how much she loved them so
That dark night alone in America

A quiet voice is singing something to me
An age old song 'bout the brave in this land here of the free
One time one night in America

May God somehow bring peace and healing.

A post from Caleb Keeter, a guitar player with the Josh Abbott Band, who was performing last night in Vegas. Once in a while you get shown the light...


"I’ve been a proponent of the 2nd amendment my entire life.

Until the events of last night. I cannot express how wrong I was. We actually have members of our crew with CHL licenses, and legal firearms on the bus.

They were useless.

We couldn’t touch them for fear police might think that we were part of the massacre and shoot us. A small group (or one man) laid waste to a city with dedicated, fearless police officers desperately trying to help, because of accss to an insane amount of fire power.

Enough is enough.

Writing my parents and the love of my life a goodbye last night and a living will because I felt like I wasn’t going to live through the night was enough for me to realize that this is completely and totally out of hand. These rounds were powerful enough that my crew guys just standing in close proximity of a victim shot by this fucking coward received shrapnel wounds.

We need gun control RIGHT. NOW.

My biggest regret is that I stubbornly didn’t realize it until my brothers on the road and myself were threatened by it.

We are unbelievably fortunate to not be among the number of victims killed or seriously wounded by this maniac."

What most people don't get is with a gun it is manufactured just like drugs so making something against the law only stops honest people from obtaining what they want.
The problem is or was inside the mind of the shooter and the only way you can stop this madness is when people are comfortable enough to say I got a problem and need help.
It would be just as easy to kill as many people with truck or even a car. So if you support taking away a weapon it can't stop with guns.
I am sure there are many who have been scared into this type of thought process and that was the shooters motivation.
