The obvious question in the Las Vegas shooting is how was it possible for the murderer to bring an arsenal into a hotel without being noticed?

The answer, I’m afraid, has more to do with the gun culture of that state than anything else.

The way we as individuals can protect ourselves from this kind of peril is not through politics or logic, but the same way countries do: by wielding our economic power.

We can all just refuse to spend any of our money in states that will not reasonably control assault weapons. We can also refuse to patronize businesses that put our lives in peril by allowing this to happen.

Carol Nelson-Selby, San Luis Obispo
