    I visit Vegas regularly. I'm in LA, SF, and Sacramento on a regular basis. The chances of anything happening to my family are slim to none. We're more in danger of getting killed in a car accident visiting these places than being victims of a shooting. I refuse to live in fear of absolutely random acts of violence.

    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    There are many reasons to feel less safe in Times Square or anywhere in NYC. Are you fucking kidding me with that? You want to know a big part of why the average person is less safe in NYC? How about ridiculous gun restrictions that only allow criminals to have guns? Blow that smoke somewhere else, dude.

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    Looks like just a lovers spat gone bad... but I guess Daisy was trying to be clever with a gun thread.

    Easily done, but would have zero impact.

    Now that you mention it, that is probably what will happen. Congress and the President will put some legislation into place in which everybody can get their kumbaya moment on the Hill, that will not have any impact on mass shootings.

    You can make a bump stock in your garage. If you are even slightly mechanical you can buy a semi-automatic weapon and make it automatic. Which is a felony to do so, but as we all know, someone who is willing to commit mass murder knowing that they are going to be killed for it isn't too concerned about which felonies they are committing in their garage.

    Does nothing. A simple piece of wood like a 2 x 4 with a round dowel out the side can operate as a slide fire. Iíve seen guys do it with nothing but changing how they hold the rifle. Even a moderately experienced eye would never notice the change in grip. An untrained eye would swear itís full auto.

    At one point here in DC there was a guy running around with a sniper rifle. Could happen again today. I'm not going to worry about it.

    Unless you figure out what someone is planning to do through intel beforehand, if someone wants to kill a large number of people without consideration of the consequences to themselves, they can do it.

    It's too easy to go to Home Depot or Target and make high powered explosives, or get firearms in a nation with close to 300,000,000 weapons for us to think we can eliminate this.

    When I was in high school, we still had a gun club...people were bringing their RIFLES to HIGH SCHOOL on the SCHOOL BUS.

    The laws and practices of the nation have gotten much stricter on guns, and yet these types of events continue to happen. It isn't guns or the laws, it's the simple fact that in a nation of 300M people, we have a higher percentage of crazy than many parts of the world.

    Maybe we should look at that instead of passing some worthless law on bump stocks.

    Just a thought.
