The media’s response in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting has been almost predictable. Calls for tighter gun-control have followed the shooting, which has claimed fifty nine lives and left nearly five hundred injured.
Media reports portray the gunman, 62-year-old Stephen Paddock, as something of a gun nut and a “one-man militia” although his motive still remains a mystery. Twenty-three firearms were found in his room at the Mandalay Bay hotel. While another 19 weapons were reportedly found at his home in Mesquite, Nevada, along with bomb making material.
All of which has helped fuel calls for tighter gun control legislation.
On cue a host of “celebrities” like JK Rowling and Jimmy Kimmel have added their voices to calls for a reconsideration of U.S. gun legislation.
Unwittingly perhaps, by helping to disarm the public they are also working to further the New World Order’s agenda. For the rise of almost every totalitarian regime in the 20th century was preceded by the imposition of toughter gun controllaws.
Moreover, as with earlier shootings what’s significant is what the media omits to say. In this case a crucial omission has been eyewitness accounts, backed by videos and police reports, of a second gunman firing from the fourth floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel.
In the wake of the shooting President Trump has hinted that tighter gun control laws could soon be considered. If indeed such legislation is passed it won’t be without precedent. The 1996 shootings in Dunblane, Scotland, also prompted a rewrite of gun laws in Britain.
Was this the real objective behind the Las Vegas shootings?

En route to Puerto Rico Tuesday morning, President Trump lashed out at Las Vegas gunman, identified by authorities as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock.
‘He’s a sick man, a demented man, a lot of problems I guess and we’re looking into him very, very seriously, but we’re dealing with a very sick individual,’ the president said.
Trump also promised reporters ‘we’ll be talking about gun laws as time goes by,’ in the aftermath of Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas.
However, when asked about a particular piece of legislation, which would make it easier for gun owners to purchase silencers, he wasn’t ready to delve into specifics.
‘Well talk about that later,’ Trump told the journalists gathered on the South Lawn of the White House.
Meanwhile, there is a renewed drive for gun legislation in the States:
