Revering Life After Las Vegas

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

We have free will to choose between good and evil. On the evening of October 1, a particularly evil human being again chose evil, and now he will repose forever in hell. That explains the atrocity. Yet it does not help us to prevent further atrocities whether by lone murderers or jihadists, or dictators hell bent on world war. Evil will always be out there, and mankind is free to choose it over the good until the end of time.

The Dead Soul of Stephen Paddock

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Paddock murdered 59 people he did not know and against whom he had no grievance. How did he come to be a man who treated fellow humans as vermin? And does this say something about our civilization? We are going to see more such men, for we no longer have a convincing answer to that oldest of questions, “Why not?”

The Inevitable Bias Avalanche in Las Vegas

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Everyone in America mourns these mass shootings. Everyone. But liberals think only they have the compassion and "common sense" to end it. Liberals are furious about this because it demonstrates all their liberal media bias and all their liberal celebrity "consciousness raising" accomplishes nothing.

United In Tragedy—But For How Long?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

We Americans may celebrate our multiracial, multiethnic, multilingual, multicultural diversity as our greatest attribute. But the acrimony and the divisions among us seem greater than ever before in our lifetimes. A massacre of Americans like that in Las Vegas may bring us together briefly. But what holds us together when issues of race, religion, ethnicity, culture, history and politics—our cherished diversity itself—appear to be pulling us ever further apart?

The President is Right

William Murchison, The American Spectator

So the media and the politicians and the sociologists explain the Vegas massacre as a result of lax gun control? We can try it that way — passing law after law, awaiting the consequences of believing that lack of government constraint explains Las Vegas; and the Pulse nightclub, Orlando; and Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church; and Sandy Hook Elementary School. Alternatively, we might give an ear to Donald J. Trump’s jarring advice, and “pray for the day when evil is banished and the innocent are safe from hatred and from fear.”

The Las Vegas lesson about guns

Editors, Washington Examiner

There is generally no distinction between the types of guns criminals use to kill people and the types of guns law-abiding people own for lawful and valid purposes. They're the same guns. Republican lawmakers and gun-rights activists haven't fought to overturn the strict federal rules regulating automatic weapons. The lesson of Las Vegas is that even the strictest firearms laws consistent with constitutional rights cannot prevent murder.

Dems Sifting The Air To Tie Vegas Shooting To Trump

When Democrats and the establishment media blame “gun nuts” and “white men w/ guns” for the acts of psychopaths, we conservatives should not take the bait and be bullied into buying the Left’s “blame the gun” narrative.

Donald Trump's Best Debate of the 2016 Presidential Campaign

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Last night Trump was the winner on points. However, Trump failed to lay out a clear understanding of the two world views that are on the ballot this election. Hillary Clinton and her Democratic allies’ radical agenda for America mostly went undiscussed.
