Cold-blooded, premeditated mass murder in a public place. No one deserves that. A tragedy.

Apart from people being taken to hospital with bullet wounds?

Seriously thats the equivalent of telling someone happy birthday and then someone getting upset that you didn't mention everyone else who may have a birthday on the same day. Stay safe vegas gaf does not equal I hope only gaf stays safe.

I mean it's dark and even if bullets hit people they might be able to keep moving for a bit with their adrenaline pumping.

Unless it's verified by the authorities, it's unverified and speculative and should not be posted.

As always, it's best to wait for the authorities to release information.

I'm not going to click on the picture linked above, but it pains me to know that the family members of the victims shown, don't even know they've been killed yet...

It really seems like these pictures should not be going around right now.

By Friday it will probably be the safest its been in a while considering the inevitable lock down thats going to occur. Still, never a bad idea to take some extra precautions.

The whole photo stream is rather horrific - how it, from one picture to the next - changes from concert pictures to the aftermath of a mass shooting.

horrific.

I mean, one can assume that Vegas is going to be the safest it's been in a long time after an event like this. Not like there's usually an "aftershock" to something like this.
But i do understand what you mean.

I stayed at the Luxor in August. A while ago but still odd timing to me. There isn't any security, I could see how someone could sneak weapons into a room and shoot from above. Disgusting.

Hotel security is going to be forever different in Las Vegas.
