That’s how Stephen Paddock was found with 23 firearms inside of his hotel room, where the shooting came from.
School shootings are starting to become a norm in today 's world. This is something we can only take precautions for but, we cannot completely stop school shootings from happening. Banning guns is not the option because the shooters are still going to find a way to get their guns. We should not punish everybody for the stupidity of some people 's actions.

However, back in 1994, Congress passed a federal assault-weapons ban that lasted 10 years. The 1994 law included a ban on 18 specific models of assault weapons, as well as a ban on any
By this time, Edmund was already 6’4” (1.93m) but he still got bullied at school. He didn’t get on with his grandma. So he shot her. He said he had done it to find out what it felt like. When his grandfather returned he shot him too saying that he wanted to spare him the sight of his dead wife.
He killed two people and seriously wounded another at Carthage jail where he was killed himself. There were perhaps 45 women married to him.
