    Not just Nevada, plenty of gun ranges in Florida

    Unfortunately gun fire is so common in Vegas that eye witnesses tell of how many diners in a nearby bar just kept on eating !!

    I am truly sorry to those and their families who have lost loved ones, but as a country I have little sympathy. No amount of immigration checks and flight bans will stop the home grown fanatic who is able to feed his madness with a means to kill freely.
    This sort of thing will forever be repeated as they will never stop the populous from holding firearms, and they will never catch, or want to catch, all the home grown fanatics.
    Forever trying.

    Alarm bells should have rang when he was amassing so much ammo.
    Why does anyone need a machine gun?

    very sad day but nothing will change.

    Nothing changed after the shooting of school children so can't see it changing now.

    I think it is too late for anything to change, or at least for a change to make a difference. Guns were easily available for so long, even if they would never sell another gun in the USA there would be problems for hundreds of years to come.

    Sadly they seem oblivious to the obvious dangers the current gun laws pose and seem to ignore these mass killings after the usual media gorge of the facts with little secondary thoughts for the victims and their families left to try and repair their lives. The killings keep coming but no one seems capable of putting legislation in the way to stop it happening. Will only be a matter of time before the next one sadly.

    Just been on the BBC, 4 X as many people have died this year in America through guns as US coalition soldiers have died in the last 16 years.

    There is no waiting period mandated for firearm purchases and private gun sales are OK.

    Essentially anything goes in Nevada.
    As FD has suggested, the guy had enough firepower to start a small war however did absolutely nothing illegal until he started shooting at people.
    There's your answer; nobody knew how much ammo he was amassing because there are no checks in Nevada. I think we make it harder to buy paracetamol in the UK than it is to buy guns and ammunition in Nevada.
