Another Billionaire Thinks Gun-Free Zones Are Magically Safe

One of the most insightful bits of advice that I ever heard said to be careful to only trust a person’s advice in his area of expertise. The person who said that was a business consultant named Dan Kennedy, and it’s good advice in both your business life and your personal life.

With this thinking, there would be many areas in which you would not want to take my advice because I don’t have any experience to speak of. Areas including golfing, fantasy football, making a great pie, and running hotels.

Steve Wynn is obviously great at running hotels (he is the billionaire owner of Wynn Resorts, after all). What Wynn is apparently not an expert in is gun safety. Why do I say that? I’ll let John Crump fill you in:

Mr. Wynn believes that the attack that Stephen Paddock launched killing nearly 60 people would never have been able to happen at any of his properties. He thinks that the fact that his hotels and properties are gun-free zones would have stopped the massacre that occurred in Las Vegas.

Somehow a crazed madman who committed the crime of murder nearly 60 times and committed over 500 other crimes would have obeyed a sign forbidding guns according to Steve Wynn.

Now, if that isn’t the most bizarre, illogical thing that I’ve ever seen, I couldn’t tell you what is. Wynn said that only his employees are allowed to carry guns on their property. With all due respect to Mr. Wynn, I doubt that guns were allowed on the property of the hotel from which the Vegas shooter was firing. How, exactly, would (another) gun ban have stopped this person from carrying out this kind of crazy action?

(Answer: it wouldn’t.)

While I doubt he’ll ever see it, here is a news flash for Mr. Wynn: People who shoot people for any reason other than self-defense (or pure accident) are doing so illegally. Violating a gun free zone is simply another (much more minor) legal violation.

These gun grabbers need to get their heads out of the sand and face the reality of the world: banning guns doesn’t make anyone safer except the criminals.

  1. I have asked many times for non-gun owners to put up a sign in their front windows or business’s stating these buildings or it structures have no guns on these properties, or its employee’s.
    But have yet to see even one abide by this request?.

    Or maybe crooks or bad peoples are allowed to carry weapons of choice on these properties.

    Or employees may carry large amountys cash on persons or in registers.

    • Guns, ammunition carried in luggage. People walk in and out of hotels carrying luggage all the time. Bell boy may even have taken the guns to his room on a luggage trolley – in his bags. Has any hotel ever demanded to check what’s in your suitcase? Andhe was a familiar figure at that hotel. Maybe the shooter didn’t see the “Gun Free” signs.

    • I believe you are correct. Videos exist of a helicopter firing on the crowd from above, Also, reports of “other” gunmen firing from the ground.

      An Attempted Las Vegas Assassination of King Salman and a Coup d’Etat in Saudi Arabia!

      I received the following from a friend in France. This just keeps getting more interesting by the moment . . .

      Here you go : This is from one of the groups I’m in.

      Re: Las Vegas Shootings …
      Makes total sense …
      “Last night, I was on radio discussing the Las Vegas shooting and the connection to what is happening in Saudi Arabia. They are connected.

      I’ll start at the beginning.

      There was a King Fasal who had a son, Prince Al Waleed bin Talal.
      King Faisal took ill and named his brother Salman as king in his place.
      King Salman has named his son an heir to the throne, instead of his brother’s son Prince Al Waleed.
      Al Waleed is a Wahhabi. Salman is Suni. Wahhabi is extreme Islam.

      Salman wanted a more modern, non extreme Islam for Saudi.That’s why he named his own son as heir.
      In Las Vegas, Prince Al Waleed owned the upper floors of the Mandalay Bay resort, including the 32nd floor.that was one of the points of shooting at the strip.
      I say one of the places, because the witnesses were all correct. There were other locations too.
      The Mandalay Bay has a heli-pad on the roofd. That is important, because that was the escape route after the carnage.
      Paddock was a pilot. He was also a gun runner between the Phillipines and the US.
      He was running guns for Prince Al Waleed. He didn’t win at the casino. Those millions came from smuggling.

      On the night of the attack, I found out that King Salman was in Las Vegas. (I didn’t know that part until after the show and I received a missing piece of info.)

      Salman was at the Tropicana.
      The FBI knew Paddock was running guns. They were tipped off, but they didn’t know there was going to be an assassination attempt on Salman by Al Waleed just down the strip.

      Paddock brought the guns as he usually did. Instead of getting paid this time, he was killed.
      He was victim one.
      The guns were used to shoot at the country music venue.
      That was to create chaos and distract from the real target over at the Tropicana.
      Al Waleed’s assassins shot from Mandalay bay, but they also were at the Tropicana trying to kill Salman.
      That explains why there were shooters on the ground as well as in the air.
      Remember the vids of the helicopter fly over.
      I asked why a helicopter would be there when there was a shooter high up, and it wasn’t a news helicopter or or cops. It was the assassins who ran up the stairs to the roof from the 32nd floor.
      Remember they sealed the door to the stairwell?
      Paddock had access to the service elevator, because the boss said he could use the elevator.
      Nobody questioned him.

      Meanwhile the assassination attempt on Salman failed. Now we are seeing the result of the failed attempt.
      It was not only an assassination attempt and a terror attack, but an attempted coup in Saudi.
      This is why everyone shut up in Las Vegas.

      The response is still ongoing and we are watching it play out.

      Las Vegas was definitely a terror attack.
      Paddock was the gun runner.
      Al Waleed, the owner of the suite was who is behind all of it.
      All the witnesses citing multiple shooters all told the truth.
      There were shootouts along the strip and in Mandalay Bay & Tropicana hotels.
      The reason nobody is talking is it’s not over yet.”

  3. Too many loose end in this case. The only witness ,who said that he was shot? has left the country. If he was shot and hit with 5.56 round, I don’t think he would be walking around with out a limp. I don’t think he would be walking around PERIOD.

    • The 5.56 round in its most often sen configuration is a full metal jacketed bullet. Unless it hits a vital organ (heart, brain, etc) or dense bone, it will pass completely through a person with minimal trauma. In combat, it usually takes 3-5 rounds just to bring a man down, mush less kill him. With a simple through-and-through wound, the security guy could easily be walking around in only hours after treatment.

    • True, he probably would not be walking around, but the 5.56 round was not adopted by the military to kill people with. It is a 22 cal bullet and the military adapted it to cause more injuries to the enemy in war and not death. In their way of thinking the 5.56 wounds more people than it kills and they wanted the enemy to be dealing with more wound soldiers because they do not have to deal with the dead. They think the enemy would have to use more of their soldiers rescuing and mending the wounded taking them from the front lines not battling against us to be treating their own. The dead do not need to be thought about as the wound do. So in short the 5.56 was for wounding more of the enemy, not killing them. If they wanted to kill them they’d stay with a 30 cal round, not a 22 cal.

  4. I’m willing to bet that the Wynn facilities have plenty of guns on the premises. No way they handle all that casino money without armed guards everywhere. As usual the gun control argument is about disarming the people who can’t hire their own armed guard and must defend themselves. As we have seen “Bad People” on the news repeatedly cause mayhem and murder until a “Good Person” arrives with a gun. The evidence has been in for a very long time: “More guns equals less crime.” Why? Because most criminals, terrorists, etc aren’t fools, they go where they can wreak havoc for a time unopposed. Their problem, where the average person can carry open or concealed, doing their thing could get them shot right off. Gun control makes everyone a potential victim. Giving every citizen that can pass a Federal background check a permit to carry open or concealed, will greatly reduce crime because the time from commission of a crime to the arrival of a good person with a gun shrinks astronomically. Also, the criminal must take a risk that their potential victim is unarmed as are any passerby.

  5. Let’s do a check here on a gun-free zone.
    Chicago, 600+ homicide they still have too much to go. A gun-free zone with more murders than any other town in the world.
    Hmmmm,,,,, sounds like Mr. Wyann isn’t doing his homework huh.
    This statement was by Chicago mayor his self.
    Now I ask you, does that look like it’s doing anyones safety any good ?
    Just the criminals as I see it. Makes it’s safe for them I doubt that even 1/3 of these criminals have been caught.gun laws are taking our safety and our rights to self defence away. There stupid laws made up by stupid people to o.

  6. I believe the statistics show that approx. 98% of mass shootings occur in gun free zones, AKA shooting galleries. Even depraved sociopathic idiots have a will to survive, they will not go into a place where they may not be able to do what they want; kill as many people as possible. The anti-gun loons simply cannot wrap their head around logic, it is difficult to create murder and mayhem while dodging bullets, even if those shooting back are not hitting there target.

  7. Interesting comments here. I too have yet to see a left winger put up a sign around their properties declaring them gun free. I don’t see how someone who made billions can come to the conclusion this one did over gun free zones. Most all mass killings have occurred in “gun free,” zones. The doctor is right about the 5.56 round IF the wound is a “pass through,” wound. Often times with some ammunition with the bullets muzzle velocity and being so light the bullet can tumble which makes it lethal. I haven’t heard of this of late, but the bullet did have that reputation.

  8. Fact#1 take your head out from up your rectumus??? A gun free zone is an invitation to slaughter. The term gun free states that we are un armed and vulnerable. Fact #2 its better to have a gun and not need it than to need one and not have it. A gun in hand is worth ten cops on the phone FACT#3. WHY ARE THE DUMOCRATS TRYING TO CONFISCATE ALL OF OUR FIRE ARMS.WHY DID IT TAKE THE California SHERIFFS DEPT. 45 MINUTES TO RESPOND THE LATEST SHOOTING CALL???It only goes to prove what I was saying all along(when you have only seconds to live the cops are only minutes away) in this case it was 45 minutes away.The dumocrats want us to give up our fire arms(GET REAL)JUST MY OPINION.

  9. I don’t think Wynn is or ever was a veteran, or a cop who has seen any type of combat or action of any type. If anyone wants to do any sort of harm to anyone, they will accomplish it, one way or another. I think after Sandy Hook, I had told my wife that anyone wanting to harm children didn’t NEED a GUN!!!!! I think in the next NEXT school attack or second, someone actually USED a knife, like I predicted. These GUN GRABBERS are just WANTING to disarm LAW ABIDING CITIZENS, NOT the true CRIMINALS!!!!!!!! I fought for my beloved country and almost died for it and my family!!!!! NOW I have people like Bloomberg and Feinstein TELLING ME I can’t PROTECT MY family from criminals!!!!!!!! I get so angry that THEY can have protection as well as the president and HIS family???!!!! What makes them SO SPECIAL above MY FAMILY????!!!!!! They go to the bathroom just the same as WE DO!!!!! We’re not as wealthy as they are, BUT we just as rich in AMERICAN traditions and LOYALTY, maybe MORE SO!!!!!! OBOOOBOO DID NOT SERVE our country, and he certainly DID NOT RESPECT IT or VALUE our TRADITIONS or OUR GOD!!!!!!!

  10. These people with money want to be the only people who have guns so can CONTROL every situation they are in. Rich people tend to be absolute control freaks and they are only interested in one thing THEMSELVES

  11. The 5.56 x 45 round is interchangeable with a .223 x 45, and about the same size, in diameter, of a standard .22 round. The 5.56 x 45 round is normally between 50 – 7 grains. To aid in penetration, the round is FMJ (Full Metal Jacket) to assist in keeping the round from breaking apart on contact. Because this round will, eventually disintegrate, the wounds produced can be massive, resulting in nerve damage and blood loss. The military uses this round to injure, because it takes four men to assist one wounded man. The round is good for varmints, and small game; because, in game this size, the round can result in a clean kill. It is forbidden to be used on larger game, such as deer.
    The round The .22, normally, is a supersonic, short range, round nose, lead projectile that explodes on contact with resistance. The projectile is normally about 40 grains. It is good for barking squirrels and target shooting.
    The effective range of either round is about .5 – .75 miles.
    The mass shooter, in Las Vegas, was not going for accuracy. He was just spraying rounds, which is why he should have been using the incendiaries. One incendiary and the 5 rounds of regular ammunition, to see if the rounds were accurately placed. He was just trying to cause terror.
    Incendiary rounds are supposed to be unlawful for civilians. Shooting from an elevated hotel room is supposed to be unlawful. Killing is supposed to be unlawful. With all of the things being unlawful, and the shooter causing his rampage, what the hell good is another law???

  12. Uh, also Mr. Wynn can’t stop people from carrying a concealed firearm when they are properly licensed.
