Nah. Not the same order of magnitude. It’s like the Pulse Nightclub massacre… but the victims are country music fans instead of gay people, so there is that.
It’s really a sad commentary that I’m comparing this to something that happened last year. This should never happen, end of story, but the truth is, there is at least one mass shooting every day in the US, and the vast majority of them are not considered sexy enough to make the news. If it’s gang or drug related, it doesn’t usually get covered. If it’s a family annihilation, it doesn’t make the news either. Soon, maybe shootings like these with dozens of deaths will be considered equally unsexy. 'Murkah.
But I don’t think this will be Trump’s 9/11 because the shooter was:
64-year-old Stephen Paddock
Which means, of course, say it with me:
“Right now, we believe it’s a sole actor, a lone-wolf-type actor,” the sheriff said.
