The issue on lenient regulations on gun possession in the United States has been revived as another mass shooting incident took place in Las Vegas, killing 59 people and injuring hundreds more. Now, a Filipina’s name is being dragged to the incident, initially saying she is one of the persons of interest in the heartless violent attack.
Considered one of the worst mass shooting incidents in the United States, the suspect opened fire in a concert where thousands of people gathered. He had a huge arsenal of at least 42 guns, explosives, and thousand rounds of ammunition.
The lone gunman, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, unleashed a barrage of bullets from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel, injuring more than 500 people.
The victims were all spectators in a country music festival below.
Assitant Clark County Sheriff Todd Fasulo said:
“It was the worst mass shooting in modern American history, and Stephen Craig Paddock was solely responsible for this heinous act.”
Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, has been initially tagged in the violent attack. However, it was reported that she was already in the Philippines days before the attack.
Based on immigration records, Danley, a Filipina and an Australian citizen, had flown from Manila on September 22 for a four-day-trip to Hong Kong.
She has now been cleared as a person of interest by the police. Danley moved to the United States 20 years ago and was reportedly sharing a house with Paddock.
The police said that Paddock, a multimillionaire, used automatic weapons to rain down gunfire on a crowd of about 22,000.
He was found dead inside the room where he opened fire. Based on reports, he had no criminal records. However, his background check revealed that his father, Benjamin Paddock lived the life of a criminal. He robbed banks and was included in the Most Wanted list.
They were attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival.
Horrifying footages emerged depicting the tragic fate of all those who attended the supposedly joyous event.
Here are some video clips taken during the shooting attack:
Saudi Official Gets Fired After Textbook Error Shows Yoda with King Faisal at UN Signing
He must be teaching them the ways of the Force!
When the United Nations was founded in 1945, it was intended as a replacement for the ineffective League of Nations. The organization was created after Word War II and it was founded by 51 member states expressing their desires to avoid such conflicts.
As anyone can imagine, it was a historic moment attended by many political leaders from across the globe. Now that same event has been recently brought to the spotlight after a textbook from Saudi Arabia apparently contained one glaring error – Jedi master Yoda can be seen in one of the pictures, sitting besides King Faisal.

Donald Trump’s Border Wall Construction Starts And It’s Already Facing Massive Protests
The building process is said to last for about 30 days.
The federal government led by President Donald Trump announced recently that the development of eight prototypes of the proposed border wall in Mexico has already started. This isn’t a surprising move though, since Trump has been very vocal about building such wall during the presidential campaign.
Apparently, the construction in San Diego started three months behind schedule. This was due to the protests conducted by those who didn’t win the contracts.
