And it’s absurd, in a mad way, because the premise of the killings was one that no other civilized country would have tolerated for a moment. Paddock bought fifty-five guns, mostly rifles, in the space of a year—most of them the kind of lethal weapons properly called assault rifles or military-style weapons, several augmented with an accessory known as a bump stock, which allowed for even more rapid firing. There is no reason on earth why any citizen of a democracy would ever need even one of these weapons, let alone fifty-five. Not to mention that the simple act of buying that many weapons of murder might be a sign that murder was being planned—an alert missed.

"There is no reason on earth why any citizen of a democracy would ever need even one of these (AR-15s)."

It isn't called "The Bill of Needs," it's called "THE BILL OF RIGHTS."
I'd also note were are NOT a democracy, we are a REPRESENTATIVE REPUBLIC.

Paddock may have been a psychotic nut, but as the Latin phrase "abusum non tollit usum" ("bad use doesn't negate good use") states, such evil is not a good reason to diminish or trash the rights of everyone who did not commit a shooting spree.

"properly called assault rifles"


Automatic disqualifier (pun intended)

AR-15s and the like are NOT assault rifles, and no matter how many times these idiots are told so, they go "meh" and disregard it.

Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Nations and peoples who forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms. — Robert Heinlein
