#SanFrancisco #Leftists blame Nevada citizens, #SecondAmendment for #LasVegas massacre

Guns are as baked into Nevada culture as rattlesnakes, sagebrush and slot machines.

It’s a wide-open, Western place where kids grow up learning to shoot early on and weapons laws are among the most relaxed in the country. Murders happen here, sure, but that hasn’t changed attitudes much when it comes to the right to carry a rifle or pistol anywhere and any way you want.

The question now is whether that may change.

In the wake of Sunday’s mass slaughter of 59 people here at the hands of a man who perched himself in a hotel suite above a country music concert with a high-powered arsenal — and apparently one that was fully legal — many Nevadans are loath to link the bloodshed to a gun-friendly culture.
