At least 58 people are killed and 515 injured in a shooting in Las Vegas

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 3 ottobre 2017

las vegasLas Vagas FOR the past four years, country-music fans have gathered on a 15-acre lot across from the Mandalay Bay Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip for the Route 91 music festival. On October 1st Jason Aldean, a honey-voiced singer from central Georgia, was closing out the festival when a shooter opened fire on the crowd from the 32nd storey of the hotel. Social-media videos showed revellers ducking, hiding and running from bursts of automatic-weapon fire.
The horrific event lasted just a couple of hours: Las Vegas police received their first report of gunfire at 10.08pm; shortly before midnight police announced that their sole suspect was dead; he is believed to have committed suicide. The suspect was Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old resident of Mesquite, Nevada, a small town about 80 miles north-east of Las Vegas, on the Nevada-Arizona border.
Joe Lombardo, sheriff of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, said the shooting was the act of “a solo actor…a lone wolf”. Police found a number of guns in Mr Paddock’s hotel room. He appears to have killed at least 58 people and wounded at least 515, making this the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.
American politicians routinely warn against “politicising” mass shootings. Although they take to the airwaves to discuss airline safety in the wake of a plane crash or security measures after a terrorist attack, discussing gun laws after a lunatic shoots scores of people to death—asking whether, perhaps, the ease of obtaining weapons in America might have something to do with the frequency with which mass murderers kill people with firearms—is understood to somehow be in bad taste. So let’s not mention the massacres at Port Arthur and Dunblane, which prompted Australia and Britain to pass more restrictive gun laws that dramatically reduced the risk of dying by gunshot in both countries.This week the House of Representatives could pass the “Hearing Protection Act”, which rolls back restrictions on gun silencers. It was supposed to be taken up in June, but was postponed after a gunman opened fire on a congressional softball game. Separate legislation in the House would allow holders of concealed-carry permits to carry their weapons in other states with more restrictive licensing—effectively gutting state-level concealment restrictions. As Barack Obama said after a married couple slaughtered 14 people in San Bernardino, California with legally bought guns, “We’ve become numb to this…This is a political choice we make to allow this to happen every few months in America.” (By The Economist)

Las Vegas: sgomenti per l’efferatezza della strage

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 2 ottobre 2017

las vegas“L’insensata sparatoria di Las Vegas ci lascia sgomenti per l’efferatezza con cui è stata compiuta e la gravità per il numero di vittime. Si è parlato in un primo momento di 50 morti e 400 feriti che sono diventati nelle successive ore rispettivamente 58 e 500 e pare che sia possibile, da quanto ci dicono fonti ufficiose, un ulteriore aumento. È assurdo come la follia di un solo uomo possa falcidiare vite innocenti. Alle famiglie delle vittime e agli Stati Uniti va il nostro più sentito cordoglio”. A dirlo è Paolo Alli, Presidente dell’Assemblea Parlamentare Nato e deputato di Alternativa Popolare in Commissione Affari Esteri. E aggiunge: “È chiaro che è necessario far luce sull’episodio per capirne la matrice. Sempre più spesso i concerti e i luoghi di raccolta dei giovani diventano teatro di stragi. La comunità internazionale deve fare fronte comune per mettere in campo tutte le strategie possibili per potenziare la prevenzione: una strada è una sempre maggiore condivisione delle informazioni di intelligence”.

CORRECTING and REPLACING Grant to MainStreet de Las Vegas to be Used for Historic Preservation

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 6 settembre 2017

MainStreet de Las VegasLas Vegas, New Mexico, was making history seven decades before Las Vegas, Nevada, even twinkled in the eyes of developers. Preserving the New Mexico town’s history is the shared job of public and private organizations, including the nonprofit MainStreet de Las Vegas (MSLV).Today, MSLV was awarded $8,500 in Partnership Grant Program (PGP) funds from Southwest Capital Bank and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas). MSLV will use the grant in part to pay for permit fees and support renovation of the Castaneda Hotel, which dates to 1898, and is part of the historic Harvey House chain of hotels and restaurants.It marks the nonprofit’s second PGP grant in five years. In 2012, MSLV was awarded a $40,000 grant from Southwest Capital Bank and other financial institutions.“As Las Vegas’ leading financial institution, we recognize the importance of making continued investments throughout our community through donations to organizations such as MainStreet de Las Vegas, in addition to our lending activities,” said Mike Melton, regional president at Southwest Capital Bank. “We are proud to partner with this fine organization, and we appreciate the generosity of FHLB Dallas, one of our own financial partners.” PGP grants are offered via a lottery system once a year through FHLB Dallas members. In 2017, FHLB Dallas awarded $300,000 in PGP funds through 31 member institutions to assist 30 CBOs. Combined with the $104,550 contributed by FHLB Dallas members, a total of $404,550 was awarded to the organizations.“Our work in the community is ongoing with 900 historic buildings in Las Vegas,” said Cindy Collins, executive director at MSLV. “The restoration of the Castaneda Hotel and the Rawlins Building are part of a renaissance on a really blighted area of Railroad Avenue. We appreciate the support of Southwest Capital Bank and FHLB Dallas in these important endeavors.”The Rawlins Building, located at 525 Railroad Avenue, also dates to 1898 and features a unique pressed-tin façade. Restoration is underway through the efforts of building owners Tom and Tina Clayton, Southwest Capital Bank, MSLV and the city of Las Vegas, New Mexico.“The PGP is designed to provide community-based organizations with the flexibility of using the grant in ways that most benefit them,” said Greg Hettrick, first vice president and director of Community Investment at FHLB Dallas. “Often, grant funds come with significant restrictions that limit their use for certain expenses, like paying contractual fees, conducting feasibility research, and the like. FHLB Dallas supports Southwest Capital Bank’s commitment to MSLV and thank them for helping the nonprofit restore history.” (photo: MainStreet de Las Vegas)
