1. Wow!!!

I'm surprised she isn't suing the LVPD and the Clark County Sheriffs Department, too!

3. I'm surprised she didn't sue Jason Aldean as well

 

Well both Jason Aldean and the Route 91 Harvest country music festival.

2. Considering Paddock shot a hotel worker several minutes prior, a case could be won.

4. That was quick

Why not sue the NRA and the gun stores? If the hotel is culpable then so will be owners of every big building a mass shooter can get a rifle nest in. Could it be because MGM et al have deep pockets?

5. Lawsuits are over money

 

As most lawsuits are about money, of course MGM got sued because they are the deep pockets here. Also, they likely have some sort of insurance and often insurance pays out quickly to avoid being sued by their insured for "bad faith".

I predict a quick sealed out of court settlement from MGM.

True, there are lawsuits to make a point and those would have been against the NRA and a gun store.

6. They should sue the source...the NRA and gun stores.

They are filthy rich and can afford it even more than MGM, or better yet sue all of them. They are all guilty to a degree. Haven't people sued the NRA before? Every single victim should sue for as much as possible! Too bad they can't sue the GOP and any rep who has supported the NRA.

7. MGM has 50x the money the NRA has

 

A quick google search shows the NRA with revenue of 163 million while MGM has revenue of 9.8 billion making MGM the deep pocket by a factor of over 50 so I dispute your assertion that the NRA can afford it more than MGM.

If someone were to sue the GOP, the NRA an any rep who supported the NRA, what cause of action would you allege?

Do you really want to open up the can of worms where a legislator can be sued by someone affected by their votes? Wouldn't that mean lawmakers on both sides of the isle would always be getting sued by someone regardless which way they voted? Who would want to be a lawmaker if that was allowed?

10. The case against MGM might have some merit- not calling the cops immediately after multiple...

...reports of gunfire inside the hotel from employees, *before* he started firing on the crowd?

8. So is the ACLU

All those privacy laws prevented the police from knowing when he was loading the guns into his car.

14. Does that include Dems who supported the NRA?

 

What about Bernie Sanders? And what makes you think gun stores are "filthy rich"?
