Jimmy Kimmel delivered an emotional monologue on the Las Vegas shooting

US wants to question Filipina over Las Vegas massacre

US wants to question Filipina over Las Vegas massacre

"If we are facing pure evil, then by all means offer thoughts and prayers".

Jimmy Kimmel was reduced to tears as he relived the horror of the Las Vegas shooting on Sunday night (10.01.17). "I just want to laugh about things every night, but it seems to be increasingly hard lately".

Kimmel then said that he disagrees intensely when people say that there's nothing we can do about gun violence and events like this.

In the past, gun rights supporters and organisations such as the National Rifle Association have warned of future regulatory efforts Democratic administrations may try to impose using a mass shooting as justification.

The shooter, originally reported to have been killed by officers, may have shot himself before they entered his hotel room, police said.

"They should be praying - they should be praying for God to forgive them for letting the gun lobby run this country because it's so insane", he said, also calling them "lawmakers who won't do anything about this because the NRA has their balls in a money clip". In fact, the House will vote this week on a law to legalize silencers, he said.

No matter where one stands on the debate over the Second Amendment, which seems more and more outmoded with each passing massacre, nobody likes being told what to do, especially not by those who have no skin in the game, after a deeply painful and wounding incident like the Las Vegas shooting.

"I am sick of it". And this was especially true for USA talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, who himself even grew up in Las Vegas.

On Conan, Conan O'Brien called what happened "the reality that's staring us in the face" and expressed incredulity over how times he's had to discuss mass shootings. When he got to work Monday, his head writer handed him his remarks from the last couple of big mass shootings.

Of course, other late-night hosts spoke about the tragedy. When did this become a ritual? Kimmel asked of the Las Vegas shooting. "Something needs to change, it really does". Comedy Central's Trevor Noah was even more blunt.

"And what I'm talking about tonight isn't about gun control - it's about common sense". "If you say after a mass shooting is never the time, then you'll never have the conversation in America because there's a mass shooting nearly every single day".

Noah added that "when a plane crashes, we talk about plane safety immediately". It is hard for me to disagree with all the people who have said that if 20 dead children in CT didn't prick at the souls of elected officials enough for them to take action, nothing will. Is it mentally ill people? "Our forefathers wanted us to have AK-47s is the argument, I assume".

The comic said "we've talked about gun violence on this show before" but "history repeats itself" every time a new attack takes place because Congress does not reform the law. After the 2016 election of Donald Trump, who has espoused less-strict gun control policies than those of his Democratic predecessor, gun stocks sank. It took courage for people at the concert last night to help each other as bullets flew. When there's a shooting, we just pray for a miracle? To pursue additional gun control legislation would be, in the eyes of SCOPE members, going after the wrong people. They know how to do this now, just as cable news anchors know how to pack a go-bag and be ready to jump on a plane so they can report from the latest site of tragedy and horror.
