Oc­to­ber 1, 2017 will go down as one of the sad­dest days in mod­ern US his­tory, af­ter a 64-year-old gun­man by the name of Stephen Pad­dock opened fire on a large crowd of fes­ti­val go­ers on the Las Ve­gas Strip from his suite on the 32nd floor of a nearby ho­tel, leav­ing 58 peo­ple dead and in­jur­ing a whop­ping 489, in what is deemed to be the dead­li­est mass-shoot­ing ever com­mit­ted by an in­di­vid­ual in the coun­try. The shooter was found dead shortly af­ter due to a self-in­flicted gun­shot wound but his mo­tive re­mains un­clear to date. World lead­ers and celebri­ties tweeted their sup­port for the vic­tims and their fam­i­lies in the wake of the tragedy, which left the on­line com­mu­nity in shock and rekin­dled the de­bate over gun laws in the US.
