Conspiracy theories regarding the Las Vegas scandal have raised attention of many in hopes of uncovering the motive behind the attack. Without reason, Stephen Paddock fired into a crowd of 22,000 country music fans, killing 58 and injuring over 500. As the investigation moves forward, lots of theories behind the deadliest mass murder in US history have surfaced and raised lots of questions. Some are more practical and more likely than others, but all weigh heavily on the tragedy. Police investigations and research gathered by concerned citizens have convoluted and incomplete finds, all claiming different conclusions from the FBI performing an elaborate “routine” cover up, to a security guard accomplice, to the Illuminati striking again.
A report by the National Public Radio reveals that the number of guns in America has increased from around three million in 1986 to over ten million in 2013, while the population of our nation has grown from 240.13 million people to 316.20 million people in the same time span, according to the S&P 500 PE Ratio. This means that gunmen have not always been on the loose. With fewer guns and fewer people, there were very few chances for a person to plan and act on a heinous atrocity.

Over the last decade or so, the United States of America has been shaken by an epidemic of terrifying mass shootings, devastating slayings of unexpecting victims, and unnerving annihilations of the innocent. There is no specific target, no explicitly sought-out group, nor definite individual. From a classroom of first-graders, to a crowded movie theatre, to a U.S. Naval yard, the location seems at most, random, other than that it is almost always a public place. The perpetrators responsible for these horrific murders also vary, and often surprise those who thought they knew them. However, while the occurrences of mass shootings are unpredictable and always shocking, most have one thing in

New details from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department on Monday have now turned the focus to the six minutes before Paddock fired his first shot on the festival crowd. Jesus Campos, a security guard, happened to be on the 32nd floor shortly before 10 p.m. He was investigating an alarm indicating that a door to a room - not Paddock’s -

In America, average citizens are subjected to mass shootings that are becoming more frequent and deadlier. A major underlying cause of these fatal mass shootings is the corruption in America’s mental health system. The government has provided stricter gun reforms and “stricter” gun control laws as a possible solution to this problem. Despite the government's efforts to eradicate this problem, mass shootings are still a major threat to society because guns are easily accessible to people who will use them in the wrong way. The government needs to take action such as making more gun laws focusing on mental health, more health educational campaigns, making more resources available that focus on coping skills for anger and conflict resolution
