I am going to say something I know many people are thinking right now but refuse to verbalize because what happened in Las Vegas was so awful. It is not the time to make political statements, but I’m gonna make one anyway.
Everyone who knows the shooter is shocked that this seemingly law-abiding citizen could do something so awful. I heard one person say that the crowd of 22,000 were probably full of President Donald Trump supporters, since it was a country-music concert. The shooter could have been thinking that this country was going to hell in a handbasket because of the Trump administration.
He could have been thinking about all of the Bible-thumping Christian conservatives who will follow Trump all the way to hell, from the looks of it.
He can cheat people out of their hard-earned money, sexually assault women, praise white supremacists, show obvious racism towards people of color here and abroad, and they keep supporting him — no matter how much he’s hurting our country. He may have seen no hope of things changing for the better, so he decided to end his life and take as many Trump supporters as he could with him.
Never miss a local story.
