They were all U.S. citizens. That's why Senator Ryan took an entourage down there to look into allegations of misconduct.

Didn't say they were not, said it did not happen in the United States.

I get that BUT....the topic is: Las Vegas was not the worst mass killing in U.S. History. U.S. History? On U.S. soil?? At least that's what I assumed.
The first time I saw the phrase (online) it was: "Worst shooting" in U.S. history, which is what I thought Skews was referring to.

Any way you slice it it's horrific.

And BTW, most of the news reports I read did not omit the word "modern" if they made the largest massacre claim at all.
Hispanic isn't a race.

If you think THAT'S fattening. A very popular treat when we were in Ireland a couple years ago was deep fried Snickers bars dipped in chocolate.

Omigod.

Heaven on earth.

People lined up at the carts to get them.
Thanks from Hollywood

My mistake. Thanks for the correction. I guess I was relying on the old "viva la raza" rallying cry from back in the day. I'm the first to criticize others for believing chants rather than facts. But I see that I have fallen into the same trap.
