Las Vegas Shooting: Former Pussycat Doll Kaya Jones

From my notes:  “Former NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw predictably claims, “Well, I think this is time for a national dialogue that we can have in a calm and reasoned way in which the country can figure out how come we have so many mass shootings in this country.””

Former Pussycat Dolls member Kaya Jones performed at the music festival in Vegas earlier Sunday evening. Then she became one of those taking cover, wishing she had the means to fight back as she sought safety in a nearby bar.

She’s now speaking out: “All of us in that moment wished we’d had a gun, because in our head was ‘someone could come through that door and we only have seven rounds in that gun. That’s the truth.

“It’s horrible to hear people politicize something that is a travesty. There are innocent people that are dead. Let’s make it about them now. What can we do to prevent this again? Make it about this crazy lunatic that’s followed an ideology, that’s crept its way into our planet, that’s sympathized from the left all the time, to a point where it’s nonsense and foolishness now.

Less guns don’t equal less terrorists. And I’m going to keep saying that until everyone understands: We can take away guns. If you have a madman, he’ll use a car as we’ve seen, or a knife as we’ve seen, or a bomb as we’ve seen. This is what terror is. It doesn’t come in the form of a gun. Guns don’t kill people. People kill people.

Mandalay Bay was sold out. This was really, really well-planned. This is premeditated. Sold out weeks in advance – he knew which room he wanted, he knew what angle, all of the above, because there’s no way he just got that room last-minute. He methodically thought this out.

For every entertainer, it was just gut-wrenching because the whole point in what we do is to unite people, to bring people together, to get them away from their pain at home. Every single performer feels responsibility in some way for the tragedy.

We need to unify. We need to always unify. This is the United States. We need to be united, not divided. We need to not allow — whether it’s foreign or domestic terrorism – the right to think that they can smile over us and say, ‘We got ’em.’ You don’t. You’re not going to break the United States.”
