    My heart felt sympathy goes to all members and families involved...

    This kind of violence always makes me ask "why" first and foremost.

    Deepest sympathies to those affected and heartfelt thanks to those that rushed in under heavy fire to save lives. I understand there were more than a few combat vets that rushed in and took charge, saving lives by tending to the wounded as well as directing others to safety.

    God Bless all that are affected by this senseless act.

    All I can do is echo what you all have expressed so far. I will say though it does seem odd to me the story that's being painted so far.

    Either way I hope this trend declines and everyone can get to a point where they don't need to worry about going out and having a good time in public.

    Woke up this morning to a cellphone loaded with news alerts about this. I immediately thought of the girl I know that lives in Vegas who just last night was posting photos of her and her friends at that festival. I jumped out to her Facebook page and read the posts...this one in particular...

    "Made it to boyfriends house finally. I'm completely numb and horrified. Some girl who was standing right next to me during the concert was shot and fell to the ground. All I can think about is if that bullet were a couple feet to my side. My 10 yo daughter would be without a mother."

    I only wish they could have gotten the shooter alive to get answers as to why. So senseless!
    No excuses!

    Hit pretty close to me. A doctor I know and who has treated me was there with her husband, he died saving her.

    Just a terrible thing.

    No words for such a senseless act. Thanks to those who have shared about your personal connections to the event. Those stories definitely make it more real and make me stop, think, reflect, and pray. Such a sad situation.

    Such a senseless tragedy. I pray for the families that have experienced loss, and I pray investigators will be able to find something to evidence his mindset and/or motivation, other than just being plain evil.

    Keep in mind this guy was a pilot and owned 2 planes, and as crazy is this guy was don't doubt he contemplated using one of them instead.

    Europe has very strict laws. Chicago has strict laws.

    Black market also goes deep, just ask Australia.

    That's all I have to say.
