Las Vegas

The Daily Point – A WORLD OF HEROES

Video Posted on

We’ve had a week of tragedy and heroism. Millions still recovering in Puerto Rico as donations pour in and local first responders head to the area. A massacre in Las Vegas where a gunman killed 58 innocent concert goers and injured more than 500. While politicians debate policy the stories of individual heroism emerge. From a local man saving people by helping them over the barricade to the man who got his pregnant future wife out of harm’s way. Then there’s the wounded man in a Vegas hospital who insisted on standing to greet the First Lady and the President. Americans stand and act in the face of evil and disasters. This week showed our resilience, strength and unity as a nation.

The Daily Point – QUICK TO BLAME

As we continue to wrap our heads around the horrific massacre perpetrated on innocent concert goers in Las Vegas, some opportunists wasted no time to use the tragedy for their own political agenda.  Lead by former Secretary of State and failed Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, some local pols took to twitter to assign blame only hours after the gunfire stopped.


Early Monday morning as the death toll was still listed at 20, Jay Lassiter tweeted about America’s “Gun fetish”

Then Senator Ray Lesniak got into the mix, saying that perhaps the killings would have been prevented if only Nevada had New Jersey style gun laws.

It’s the height of arrogance in the face of an absolute tragedy to position for your own political agenda.  It’s utter ignorance to suggest that this event was simply avoidable for want of one new law banning a certain type of weapon.  I guess all three took the advice of former White House Chief of Staff and current Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel who famously said, “you never want a serious crisis to go to waste”. 

 As far as the debate following the Las Vegas massacre.  Does anyone actually believe that one law, one ban or a complete eradication of the Second Amendment will make you safer?  Either way, the debate will ensure, but can we at least give time for grieving families to bury their loved ones?  It’s about respect and real solutions.  As far as preventing the next one, there are a lot of questions, and no one has all the answers.  For now, please tune out the ignorant statements coming from some of our Democratic friends in Trenton and the person that clearly still can’t believe she’s become politically irrelevant.
