Staggering look at the Vegas Massacre by the numbers

October 8, 2017

Vegas shooting


It's been a week since the worst shooting in recent American history.


It's hard to find the words to address the sadness and horror at the carnage, the frustation at the inaction of our government officials who seem to only find "thoughts and prayers". Frankly, discusted at perversion of the second amendment by some who conveniently forget the "well regulated milia" part. Straight up, Unless they plan on shooting some Tories with bayonets ... bye felicia.

So since we truly can't find the words, let's talk Vegas and gun facts by the numbers.

Vegas shooting by the numbers:
59 dead
527 injured
Two off-duty officers killed
200-300 number of bullets heard, according to witnesses
10-15 minutes of gunfire, according to witnesses
9 rounds of gunfire per second by Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock
19 rifles (at least) found in gunman’s room
Forty-seven guns were found in the suspected Las Vegas shooter's hotel suite and two homes
Paddock purchased 33 guns in the last year — and it didn’t raise any red flags

Let that sync in ...
59 dead
527 injured

Let's see how that fits in military terms:
A Squad is approximately made up of 8 to 24 soldiers
A Platoon (Troop) is approximately made up of 16 to 50 soldiers
A Company is approximately made up of 100 to 250 soldiers
A Battalion is approximately made up of 400 to 1000 soldiers

Soooo in the theater of war, Paddock would have taken out an entire damn battalion.

If not now, when can we talk about some sensible gun control? There have 273 mass shootings in 2017 as of Oct. 2. So it's hard to know when it won't be too close to one ... As Hillary Clinton brilliantly summed up the subject - "I’m not here to take away your guns, I just don’t want you to be shot by someone who shouldn’t have a gun in the first place."
