That is the question on my mind today. I may be late to the party but as soon as I found out what had happened in Las Vegas it broke my heart. I am a country music fan. I’ve been to country music concerts multiple times over. I never in a million years expected something like this to happen. I don’t say that to be insensitive to the natural disaster victims either because they need our help now more than ever as well. They need fresh water and food to survive.
I just can’t even put into words what I think. I don’t understand how you could do this. What are you so angry about that you could just kill innocent lives. Is your life that bad that you kill complete strangers?
For those of you that have the audacity to call Jason Aldean a coward. I never in a million years wish any of you had to be in the position he was in last night. To be a performer seeing your fans going from happy to being shot in front of your eyes. Do you think that he is feeling good today. He is probably feeling terrible. He probably didn’t even really know what was going on. All he knew was his security team yelling in his ear to get off stage. He had his very pregnant wife there with him so his mind of course went where any right persons mind went to his family.
My other thought is why was there no security at the surrounding buildings. How did he get that much ammunition and weapons into a hotel. It’s terrible to say but maybe they need to now have security at the surrounding buildings of outdoor venues. Not just at the venue itself. They do it in NYC so why wouldn’t they do it in Vegas. He shot people from another hotel building! If they had snippers positioned on roofs he would have been down way before it got as worse as it did.
You can agree to disagree but there is a serious problem in this country and in the world when it comes to gun violence.
