For the city of Los Vegas in the county government is most likely charge you capture step forward. Where they've lost some of their fellow colleagues who were attending the concert. And then you've got the governor and then you've also got the president and what you've got major logistical issues going on right now peril well. You've got the hospitals are overwhelmed. With patience. You brought the families of the victims waiting to see what the outcome of Hitler loved ones. Waiting I'm sure for tragic news we've got to deal with the logistics of what to do with the families where did they meet.

You've got Homeland Security now getting involved which you did just say terrorist activity. Are they call the victim I mean the shooter apparently a 64 year old white mail. Which is kind of unique because they're usually the profile of but he loan gunman. It's kind of interesting too is I think about this stop. 64 years old that is. A little bit older than me but the Vietnam error page should for available at that point in time. Are a poorly there's a connection. That's bad. A million year old shooter popcorn time. Will probably gonna see new drug debates at this point time and that whole world about concerts were going to be held. In future days. Are they going to be canceled.

Here is something this may be the next wave of the type of a security that unity and you're gonna need new measures for our other hotel. All of this is what you know when I was on President Bush's Homeland Security we always do for amateurs so better where you drew the parameters. A security checks someone could go outside their prayer certain and sadly the day of prayer border management LBB hotels. Highrise buildings. But there's always a new parameter. You know at first it was airports. There was government buildings. Now it may become hotels or other types of events yet but I'm just saying as a leader. There's always have their checkpoint and someone who called traffic immediately outside that checkpoint you stadiums and so forth that. This is what's sad commentary of we're very vulnerable in a free society so to. Violence and would there be a lone nut case or someone whose planned. Any. Let terrorists attacked it'll be I'm sure they're doing the valuations right now on who this. 64 year old man was was she associated with anyone else where that you get picked and each.
