The Las Vegas massacre and its aftermath are pure Americana.Mass violence is deeply rooted in American culture. America is, in short, a country with a past history and current stark reality of racism, ethnic chauvinism and resort to mass violence.The Las Vegas shootings make clear once more the need to ban assault weapons. When America had such a ban, from September 1994 to September 2004, it helped to limit mass shootings; yet Congress failed to renew the ban, owing to intense lobbying from gun enthusiasts. America's gun lovers reject such evidence, and mass shootings like the one in Las Vegas serve only to reinforce their belief that firearms are their only true protection in a dangerous world.In Texas or Las Vegas, freedom is the comfort of carrying your trusty firearms anywhere you like.It's time to let red states and blue states go their own way. Until that happens, more U.S. states should be encouraged to choose gun sanity for themselves.
