At one point, the Las Vegas gunman fired 90 bullets in 10 seconds. The types of firearms that can do this are legally available in most parts of the US.

  1. Why we must not destroy history and statues.. They are now telling us vegas was amerikas worst mass shooting….297 shot dead at Wounded Knee.- Ameirca’s Largest Mass shooting. Not Las Vegas.
    And you didnt even call these brainwashers out

  2. That’s a 1911 series 70 not a “model 70” been around since… 1911.
    Oh the nice “scary” music too with the scary guns.
    Last time the British tried to lecture us about guns was 1776.

  3. We are stupid. Every time another one of these mass gun murders happens, some people say “pray”. After years and dozens of mass murders it is apparent that He is not listening so save your prayers for somethng that might make a difference. Or maybe to quote JFK, “here on earth God’s work must truly be our own”.

  4. Kinder eggs ,illegal in America,but in certain states you can not only buy,but open carry, semi/automatic weapons,maybe Chris Rock was right “Let people have guns,but charge $1000 dollars per bullet, then there would be no innocent bystanders ”
    The ONLY people who should have weapons such as these,are the military,simple as that,there is absolutely NO need whatsoever for members of the public to be owning weapons such as these “But it’s in the constitution ” that doesn’t make it right,what a backward nation

  5. Actually any automatic weapons are next to impossible to purchase legally. The stamp required is several hundred per firearm and the background check is extensive and takes months. You can’t have ever been in trouble. All that if you can afford how outrageously expensive a fully automatic gun is

  6. Two world wars (a third is coming to the continent of Europe) and Islamic terrorism is on your footsteps. Why? Your governments have disarmed you and left you unprotected
    Good luck with that
    🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  7. It’s pointless to tell a more savage barbaric people like Americans to evolve. It will take them a couple of hundred years before they are where the rest of the 1st world western nations are today.

  8. You really cannot help these idiots. When absolute swathes of such a massive country, including many relatives of the victims, still insist they do not want their ‘basic right to bear arms’ taken away, you realise they cannot be helped 😂

  9. This is a big problem. Americans are 27th in education and first in confidence. The very last thing you need is a stupid confident person with a gun. I just wish they would stop saying they need guns for protection when they don’t. If someone is breaking in to your house they are after your electrical goods not to kill you. Get the second amendment gone I say.

  10. Sorry BBC. These weapons are illegal in all the US. There is a modification kit that was also illegal until it was legalized under the Obama administration with special regulations for sales and ownership. The majority of fully automatic weapons in the US are illegal and not registered as the law requires. Like I said before, the Government can make laws all day long. Until the real issue if violence is addressed then the laws mean nothing. Even the UK has violence, you had a member of Parliament shot, knife and acid attacks on the rise. Its a social breakdown in our society as a whole. Its a much larger issue then just making laws.

  11. And the the media trolling continues…..like they think all Americans are mentally handicapped………..the media continues to pander us as fools what a shame that this kind of propaganda is even allowed …… no different than the nazis disarming their population through propaganda and false flag attacks to secure power in germany in the 1930s

  12. Not correct. Even so, how do you avoid possession of any sort of firearm from criminals or deranged people? The Las Vegas attack was carefully planned and orchestrated. Gun prohibitions are only effective in totalitarian states wherein the violator is swiftly executed with no further explanation. Go look at history. A multi-millionaire can buy anything that he wants…except in a totalitarian state.

  13. The dishonest BBC showing automatic weapons that are not legal for the average gun owner. A semi-automatic hunting rifle can be modified in the same way as an “assault rifle” and even an old Lee Enfield bolt-action can get off 50 rounds a minute in experienced hands. Leftist disinformation in the guise of news. The question is not why should citizens be allowed to own them but it is why should the government have the power to ban them? Guns are hard to get in Europe but when adjusted for population gun crime is worse on the Continent than in America. There was another vehicle attack in London yesterday, when will the the government ban modern fast cars? Why does someone need one? An ancient, slow Austin Seven would get one from point A to point B. Who needs a sharp knife, industrial acids, or garden fertilizer? All have been used in mass killings yet it is only guns that left goes after because politicians fear an armed citizenry.

  14. Here in the U.S.
    Dont let liberals and the Democrat Party try to take away your right …

    There are 30,000 gun related deaths per year by firearms, and this number is not disputed. The U.S. population is 324,059,091 as of June 22, 2016. Do the math: 0.0000925% of the population dies from gun related actions each year. Statistically speaking, this is insignificant! What is never told, however, is a breakdown of those 30,000 deaths, to put them in perspective as compared to other causes of death:
    • 65% of those deaths are by suicide, which would never be prevented by gun laws.
    • 15% are by law enforcement in the line of duty and justified.
    • 17% are through criminal activity, gang and drug related or mentally ill persons – better known as gun violence.
    • 3% are accidental discharge deaths.
    So technically, “gun violence” is not 30,000 annually, but drops to 5,100. Still too many? Now lets look at how those deaths spanned across the nation.
    • 480 homicides (9.4%) were in Chicago
    • 344 homicides (6.7%) were in Baltimore
    • 333 homicides (6.5%) were in Detroit
    • 119 homicides (2.3%) were in Washington D.C. (a 54% increase over prior years)
    So basically, 25% of all gun crime happens in just 4 cities. All 4 of those cities have strict gun laws, so it is not the lack of law that is the root cause.
    This basically leaves 3,825 for the entire rest of the nation, or about 75 deaths per state. That is an average because some States have much higher rates than others. For example, California had 1,169 and Alabama had 1.
    Now, who has the strictest gun laws by far? California, of course, but understand, it is not guns causing this. It is a crime rate spawned by the number of criminal persons residing in those cities and states. So if all cities and states are not created equal, then there must be something other than the tool causing the gun deaths.
    Are 5,100 deaths per year horrific? How about in comparison to other deaths? All death is sad and especially so when it is in the commission of a crime but that is the nature of crime. Robbery, death, rape, assault are all done by criminals. It is ludicrous to think that criminals will obey laws. That is why they are called criminals.
    But what about other deaths each year?
    • 40,000+ die from a drug overdose–THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THAT!
    • 36,000 people die per year from the flu, far exceeding the criminal gun deaths.
    • 34,000 people die per year in traffic fatalities(exceeding gun deaths even if you include suicide).
    Now it gets good:
    • 200,000+ people die each year (and growing) from preventable medical errors. You are safer walking in the worst areas of Chicago than you are when you are in a hospital!
    • 710,000 people die per year from heart disease. It’s time to stop the double cheeseburgers! So what is the point? If the liberal loons and the anti-gun movement focused their attention on heart disease, even a 10% decrease in cardiac deaths would save twice the number of lives annually of all gun-related deaths (including suicide, law enforcement, etc.). A 10% reduction in medical errors would be 66% of the total number of gun deaths or 4 times the number of criminal homicides ……………. Simple, easily preventable 10% reductions! So you have to ask yourself, in the grand scheme of things, why the focus on guns? It’s pretty simple:
    Taking away guns gives control to governments. The founders of this nation knew that regardless of the form of government, those in power may become corrupt and seek to rule as the British did by trying to disarm the populace of the colonies. It is not difficult to understand that a disarmed populace is a controlled populace.
    Thus, the second amendment was proudly and boldly included in the U.S. Constitution. It must be preserved at all costs. So the next time someone tries to tell you that gun control is about saving lives, look at these facts and remember these words from Noah Webster: “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed.”

    Edited for some people threw a little fit about not listing my source, comes from Ted Nugent and you’re more than welcome to look up the fax I did…

  15. Interesting that some pro gun supporters here just delete your comments if you post on their threads. Like when I asked how many people can be killed with knives from a 32nd floor in reply to them saying knives are just as dangerous as guns. The fact they delete my comments just proves that they have no argument. Sure knives and gun CAN kill but that is not the sole purpose for that object to be created. The one objective of a gun is to kill or maim. It really is that simple.

  16. Look at all the gun Americans getting their panties in a bunch.

    They can’t even make a coherent argument against mass shootings CAUSED by availability of heavy armaments.

    “terrorist front of your doorstep!” “Last time the British blah blah 1776″… largely false and does not present any validation.

  17. Gun laws don’t stop hate-filled people from carrying out their evil. A backpack filled with nails and explosives at the end of a concert. Someone driving a refrigerated truck into scores of people.
