You couldn’t make this up

When Stephen Paddock massacred 58 people at an outdoor concert in October 2017, he left behind him 50 guns and 40 firearm components, including scopes and rifle cases, worth altogether about $60,000.

A court appointed special administrator has now suggested that the weapons might be flogged off to raise money to donate to the relatives of those killed by Paddock.

Meanwhile, the 485-page report into the Parkland, Florida school massacre in February last year has concluded that the way to avoid similar happening elsewhere is by arming teachers, spending more on school security and mental health, and training police to be more aggressive when responding to school shootings.
