Why the Massacre in Las Vegas? Part II

    I think one reason for the massacre is because of the lack of fear of eternal punishment (see "Why the Massacre in Las Vegas?  Part I).
    I would contend that the second reason is because of a culture of death.  We live in an age where death is rampant.  Exhibit A is the abortion industry.  A woman becomes pregnant and the solution is to kill the unborn.  That is called infanticide.  Getting too old and can't take care of yourself?  Senicide takes care of that problem.
    Life has become cheap.  Whether it is shooter games, or violent movies.  I love James Bond films, but in The Spy Who Loved Me, he kills 31 people, and another 116  people are killed.  In the Quantum of Solace, he kills another 16.  Legolas kills 57 people in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.  And Chicago saw in 2016: "762 murders, 3,550 shooting incidents, and 4,331 shooting victims."  http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/01/us/chicago-murders-2016/index.html
