Jimmy Kimmel on Mass Shooting in Las Vegas


HERE WE ARE AGAIN IN THE AFTERMATH OF ANOTHER TERRIBLE, INEXPLICABLE, SHOCKING AND PAINFUL TRAGEDY, THIS TIME IN LAS VEGAS. WHICH HAPPENS TO BE MY HOME TOWN AND CLETO’S HOMETOWN AND CLETO SR.’S HOMETOWN. AS YOU KNOW, 59 PEOPLE ARE DEAD. HUNDREDS ARE WOUNDED IN WHAT THEY SAY WAS THE DEADLIEST MASS SHOOTING IN MODERN AMERICAN HISTORY COMING ABOUT 1 1/2 YEARS AFTER THE PREVIOUS DEADLIEST MASS SHOOTING IN MODERN AMERICAN HISTORY, IN ORLANDO, WHERE 49 PEOPLE LOST THEIR LIVES. OF COURSE, WE PRAY FOR THE VICTIMS AND FOR THEIR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS, AND WE WONDER WHY, EVEN THOUGH THERE’S PROBABLY NO WAY TO EVER KNOW WHY A HUMAN BEING WOULD DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS TO OTHER HUMAN BEINGS WHO ARE AT A CONCERT HAVING FUN AND LISTENING TO MUSIC. JASON ALDEAN WAS ON STAGE, LUKE COMBS, WHO IS HERE WITH US TONIGHT, HE PLAYED THE SHOW, TOO. OBVIOUSLY NO ONE COULD HAVE EVER EXPECTED THAT SOMETHING TERRIBLE WOULD HAPPEN, BUT IT DID. A VERY SICK PERSON SMUGGLED 17 GUNS INTO HIS HOTEL ROOM AND SMASHED OUT THE WINDOWS, STARTED FIRING INDISCRIMINATELY FROM THE 32nd FLOOR INTO A CROWD OF 22,000 PEOPLE ACROSS THE STREET. AND AS A RESULT OF THAT, THIS MORNING WE HAVE CHILDREN WITHOUT PARENTS AND FATHERS WITHOUT SONS IS, MOTHERS WITHOUT DAUGHTERS. WE LOST TWO POLICE OFFICERS. WE LOST A NURSE FROM TENNESSEE, A SPECIAL ED TEACHER FROM A LOCAL SCHOOL HERE IN MANHATTAN BEACH. AND IT’S THE KIND OF THING THAT IT MAKES YOU WANT TO THROW UP OR GIVE UP. IT’S TOO MUCH TO EVEN PROCESS, ALL THESE DEVASTATED FAMILIES WHO HAVE TO LIVE WITH THIS PAIN FOREVER BECAUSE ONE PERSON WITH VIOLENT AND INSANE VOICE IN HIS HEAD MANAGED TO STOCKPILE A COLLECTION OF HIGH-POWERED RIFLES AND USED THEM TO SHOOT PEOPLE. THE GUY WAS AN ACCOUNTANT. HE HAD NO CRIMINAL RECORD. HIS BROTHER WHO LIVES IN FLORIDA SEEMS TOTALLY SHOCKED, GENUINELY DUMBFOUNDED. HE SAID HE SAW NO SIGN OF ANY OF THIS. THE OWNER OF THE STORE THAT SOLD THE KILLER SOME OF THE RIFLES THAT HE PASSED THE GOVERNMENT MANDATED BACKGROUND CHECK WHEN HE WAS IN THE STORE AND HE WASN’T ON ANY WATCHLIST. DIDN’T SEEM TO BE A RELIGIOUS OR POLITICAL EXTREMIST. CAME OUT OF NOWHERE. BECAUSE OF THAT, BECAUSE THERE WEREN’T ANY OF THE USUAL SIGNS, YOU KNOW, I’VE BEEN READING COMMENTS FROM PEOPLE WHO SAY THIS IS TERRIBLE, BUT THERE’S NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT. BUT I DISAGREE WITH THAT INTENSELY BECAUSE, OF COURSE, THERE’S SOMETHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT. THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS WE CAN DO ABOUT IT. BUT WE DON’T, WHICH IS INTERESTING BECAUSE WHEN SOMEONE WITH A BEARD ATTACKS US, WE TAP PHONES, WE INVOKE TRAVEL BANS, WE BUILD WALLS TO TAKE EVERY POSSIBLE PRECAUTION TO MAKE SURE IT DOESN’T HAPPEN AGAIN BUT WHEN AN AMERICAN BUYS A GUN AND KILL OTHER AMERICANS, THEN THERE’S NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT. THE SECOND AMENDMENT, I GUESS, OUR FOREFATHERS WANTED US TO HAVE AK-47s IS THE ARGUMENT, I ASSUME. ORLANDO, NEWTOWN, AURORA, SAN BERNARDINO, EVERY ONE OF THESE SHOOTINGS THE MURDERER USED AUTOMATIC OR SEMIAUTOMATIC RIFLES WHICH ARE NOT WEAPONS YOU USE FOR SELF-DEFENSE. THEY’RE WEAPONS DESIGNED TO KILL LARGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE IN THE SHORTEST POSSIBLE ALT OF MOUNT O TIME. THIS GUY APPARENTLY HAD TEN OF THEM IN HIS ROOM. AT LEAST LEGALLY. AT LEAST SOME WERE THERE ILLEGALLY. WHY WAS THIS ALLOWED? I DON’T KNOW WHY OUR LEADERS CONTINUE THIS TO HAPPEN. FIVE PEOPLE SHOT SHOT IN LAWRENCE, KANSAS, LAST NIGHT, THREE OF THEM DIED. IT DIDN’T MAKE A BLIP BECAUSE THIS IS A REGULAR PART OF OUR LIVES NOW. YOU KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN? WE’LL PRAY FOR LAS VEGAS. SOME OF US WILL GET MOTIVATED. SOME OF US WON’T GET MOTIVATED. THE BILLS WILL BE WRITTEN, THE NRA WILL SMOTHER IT WITH MONEY AND WE’LL GET DISTRACTED AND MOVE ON TO THE NEXT THING AND IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN AND AGAIN. AND LAST NIGHT, THE WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY SARA SANDERSON SAID THIS MORNING IT WAS NOT THE TIME FOR POLITICAL DEBATE. I DON’T KNOW. WE HAVE 59 INNOCENT PEOPLE DEAD. IT WASN’T THEIR TIME EITHER. SO I THINK NOW IS THE TIME FOR POLITICAL DEBATE. PRESIDENT TRUMP IS VISITING LAS VEGAS ON WEDNESDAY. HE SPOKE THIS MORNING, SAID HE’S PRAYING FOR THOSE WHO LOST THEIR LIVES. YOU KNOW, IN FEBRUARY HE ALSO SIGNED A BILL THAT WOULD MAKE IT EASIER FOR PEOPLE WITH SEVERE MENTAL ILLNESS TO BUY GUNS LEGALLY. MITCH McCONNELL, SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, PAUL RYAN, A NUMBER OF OTHER LAWMAKERS WHO WON’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT THIS BECAUSE THE NRA HAS THEIR BALLS IN A MONEY CLIP ALSO SENT THEIR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS TODAY. WHICH IS GOOD. THEY SHOULD BE PRAYING FOR GOD TO FORGIVE THEM FOR LETTING THE GUN LOBBY RUN THIS COUNTRY BECAUSE IT IS SO CRAZY. RIGHT NOW THERE ARE LOOPHOLES IN THE LAW THAT LET PEOPLE AVOID BACKGROUND CHECKS IF THEY BUY A GUN PRIVATELY FROM ANOTHER PARTY, THEY BUY IT ONLINE OR AT A GUNSHOW. SO I WANT TO SHOW YOU SOMETHING. THESE ARE THE FACES OF THE SENATORS WHO DAYS AFTER THE SHOOTING IN ORLANDO VOTED AGAINST THE BILL THAT WOULD HAVE CLOSED THOSE LOOPHOLES. THESE ARE THE 56 SENATORS WHO DIDN’T WANT TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT THAT. 90% OF DEMOCRATS — I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT POLITICIANS HERE — I’M TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE. AND 77% OF REPUBLICANS SUPPORT BACKGROUND CHECKS AT GUN SHOWS. 89% OF REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS ARE IF FAVOR OF RESTRICTING GUN OWNERSHIP FOR THE MENTALLY ILL. BUT NOT THIS GANG. THEY VOTED AGAINST BOTH OF THOSE THINGS. SO WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, YOUR THOUGHTS AND YOUR PRAYERS ARE INSUFFICIENT. AND BY THE WAY, THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES WILL BE VOTING ON A PIECE OF LEGISLATION THIS WEEK. IT’S A BILL TO LEGALIZE THE SALE OF SILENCERS FOR GUNS. THIS IS WHAT THEY’RE WORKING ON. WE HAVE A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH GUN VIOLENCE IN THIS COUNTRY. AND I GUESS THEY DON’T CARE. IF I’M WRONG ON THAT, FINE, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. BECAUSE I’M SICK OF IT. AND YOU KNOW, I WANT THIS TO BE A COMEDY SHOW. I HATE TALKING ABOUT STUFF LIKE THIS. I JUST WANT TO LAUGH ABOUT THINGS EVERY NIGHT, BUT THAT — IT SEEMS TO BECOMING INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT LATELY. IT FEELS LIKE SOMEONE HAS OPENED A WINDOW INTO HELL. AND WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT TONIGHT ISN’T ABOUT GUN CONTROL. IT’S ABOUT COMMON SENSE. COMMON SENSE SAYS NO GOOD WILL EVER COME FROM ALLOWING A PERSON TO HAVE WEAPONS THAT CAN TAKE DOWN 527 AMERICANS AT A CONCERT. COMMON SENSE SAYS YOU DON’T LET THOSE WHO SUFFER FROM MENTAL ILLNESS BUY GUNS. YOU KNOW, IN JUNE OF LAST YEAR THE NRA FOUGHT TO MAKE SURE PEOPLE ON THE NO-FLY LIST CAN BUY GUNS. THEY ARE ALLOWED TO GET ON A PLANE, THEY’RE ALLOWED TO OWN A VERY DANGEROUS GUN. WHO THINKS THAT MAKES SENSE? THEM, I GUESS. THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED WITH THE NRA. MAYBE I’M NUTS, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO THINK WE COULD PUT POLITICS ASIDE, NO AMERICAN CITIZEN NEEDS AN M-16 OR TEN OF THEM. AND MAYBE THAT WAY WE DON’T DO THIS AGAIN. I MEAN, THAT SEEMS VERY REASONABLE TO ME. [ APPLAUSE ] YOU KNOW, IN 1980, WE HAD A BIG FIRE AT MGM, THE HOTEL IN LAS VEGAS. IT WAS HORRIBLE, RIGHT? I MEAN, 85 PEOPLE DIED. YOU COULD SEE THE FIRE. I WAS 13 YEARS OLD. I’LL NEVER FORGET. A MAN JUMPED OUT THE WINDOW. IT WAS A TERRIBLE THING TO SEE. AND THEN A FEW MONTHS LATER THERE WAS ANOTHER FIRE AT THE HILTON AND FIVE PEOPLE DIED. SO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY DID? THEY CHANGED THE LAWS. THEY MADE MAJOR CHANGES TO THE FIRE SAFETY CODES, AND IT HASN’T HAPPENED AGAIN. WHY WOULD WE APPROACH THIS DIFFERENTLY? IT’S A PUBLIC SAFETY ISSUE. AND SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE ALREADY. SO TELL YOUR CONGRESSPEOPLE TO DO SOMETHING. I MEAN, IT’S NOT ENOUGH TO SEND YOUR LOVE AND PRAYER. WE DO. WE SEND OUR LOVE AND SUPPORT AND WHATEVER ELSE IS NEEDED TO LAS VEGAS AND FAMILIES FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY AND CANADA WHO HAD THE WORST NIGHT OF THEIR LIVES LAST NIGHT. YOU KNOW, VEGAS IS A FUNNY TOWN. IT’S EASY TO FORGET PEOPLE LIVE THERE. BUT THEY DO. I MEAN, LOTS OF GOOD PEOPLE. THESE PEOPLE SHOWED UP IN DROVES TODAY TO DONATE BLOOD BECAUSE IT’S THE ONLY THING THEY COULD DO. AND SO THEY DID IT. BUT THERE IS MORE THAT WE CAN DO, AND WE NEED TO DO IT. AND THANK GOD FOR THE POLICE IN LAS VEGAS WHO RISKED THEIR LIVES TRYING TO LOCATE THE MAN WITH THE GUN. THANK GOD FOR THE DOCTORS AND NURSES AND FIREFIGHTERS AND PARAMEDICS WHO ROSE TO THE OCCASION AS THEY ALWAYS SEEM TO DO WHEN WE NEED THEM TO. AND FOR THE CONCERT GOERS THEMSELVES WHO HELPED EACH OTHER, WHO THREW THEIR BODIES ON TOP OF EACH OTHER, WHO DROVE THEIR PRIVATE CARS FULL OF PEOPLE WHO WERE BLEEDING TO THE HOSPITAL. YOU KNOW, DON’T FORGET THEM. AND DON’T FORGET WHAT’S GOING ON IN PUERTO RICO EITHER BECAUSE JUST BECAUSE THEY’RE NOT THE LEAD STORY TODAY, THEY STILL NEED HELP. AND IF YOU WANT TO HELP EITHER ONE OF THOSE CITIES, PUERTO RICO’S NOT A CITY, OBVIOUSLY, VEGAS OR PUERTO RICO, A GOOD WAY TO DO THAT IS TO GIVE TO THE AMERICAN RED CROSS. THERE’S THE INFORMATION RIGHT THERE ON THE SCREEN. AND WE SEND ALL OUR LOVE TO OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS IN LAS VEGAS AND TO EVERYONE AFFECTED BY THIS TERRIBLE EVENT. I’M SORRY FOR GETTING EMOTIONAL. I’M NOT GREAT WITH THIS KIND OF THING, BUT I JUST — IT’S IMPORTANT, YOU KNOW. [ APPLAUSE ]

  • Jon Stewart has done amazing job standing up for the 9/11 hero’s!

    Please Jimmy Kimmel, make Gun Control your issue!

  • Americans; we should arm teachers.

    Just wait one day for a student or a teacher have a real bad day…

    Never knew why Americans are even against strong background checks..

  • AR-15 IS NOT a assault rifle AR-15 stands for Armalite. Assault Rifle are fully automatic meaning when you pull that trigger the firearm is going to keep firing until you release that trigger. ALL! Ar-15 rifles are semi automatic meaning when you pull that trigger only one round will come out of that barrel and in order fire again you need to release the trigger and pull again . And M16 rifles are select fire auto rifles not available for civilian use. The ignorance on firearms is so unbelievable it makes me want to pull my hair. PLEASE EDUCATE YOURSELF ON FIREARMS!

  • “ thoughts and prayers “ won’t do shyt neither your imaginary “ god “ Even if there is some noob called “ god “ I am sure it doesn’t give shyt

  • Lol, Jimmy. M16s have been banned for a long time. And semi-autos are used almost exclusively for self defence. This liberal is a clown. Just like all liberals.

  • Just came here from an old h3h3 video to see if YouTube seriously left ads on this video still to this day. I have the luxury of youtube premium so i had to log onto this account(my second account) to see if there are ads. Doesn’t seem to be any ads anymore, interesting. Regardless RIP to all the victims of this tragedy. Never forget. God bless.

  • Saudi Prince Alwaleed owned top floors of Mandalay Bay and Alwaleed supported ISIS big time for Pete's sake!!

  • So this was all done by a lone millionaire who brought 23 guns and thousands of rounds of ammo up to his room to spray the crowd and commit suicide…and had nothing to do with Saudi ISIS funder Prince Alwaleed that owned the top floors of Mandalay Bay right?

  • yes lets legalize silencers so its even harder to find out where the next mental shooter is located. clap clap fucktards

  • This was a sad horrible day in our history there was alot of people killed and injured alot of unnecessary loss of life but it doesn't even start to compare to what happens in Chicago and that state has the toughest laws on the books when are liberals going to realize stronger laws more things taking away from law abiding citizens vwill not change this kind of horrible things from happening if law enforcement would have treaded that outside event like they do for presidents and cleared the top floors not allowing them from being used the sicko would not had a place to set up to do this. Sick people will always do sick things and unlawful people will always do unlawful things no laws no bands no rights taken away will ever change these facts but if adapt to them and change your own mind set you can have a better chance of not being involved in these situations increase law enforcement fund them allow them to do their job

  • You only take guns away from Americans who could use them to defend themselves.

    The shooter had acquired his higher-powered weaponry ILLEGALLY because those guns are ALREADY BANNED FOR CITIZEN USE IN THE US.

    Not sorry, Jimmy. Your tears are not logic, they are just tears.

  • Stop milking this for your political agenda. Lovely acting with your fake crying by the way. One floor with your fake crying is when you start talking about your agenda.

  • India and china has shitload of population and low crime and death rate because they dont allow citizens to have guns.

  • One solution for gun crime 1. NO BAIL for anyone accused of a gun crime 2. NO PAROLE for anyone convicted of a gun crime. Gun criminals cannot commit more gun crimes f they are behind bars.

  • That is sad,lost of live is sad like war.War like bombimg of Serbia in 1999 killing thousand of inocente people,bombing with depleted uranium and effecting on hundreds of thousands of people.Think about that.

  • Did he just say semi-automatic firearms aren't for self defense? All pistols you can name are semi-automatic, Jimmy… I'm assuming you can't name a revolver or muzzle-loader, or single fire…

  • Ok since trump has been in office there has been 4 mass shootings but when Obama was in office there where over 24 mass shootings and way more killed so whos fault was that was that also trumps fault or Republicans fault

  • And once again…here we are. Two shootings in a single weekend. More innocent lives lost. And yet Congress does nothing!

  • He's so right. And I can't understand why there are still people who don't like him. And if the president doesn't stop spreading hate and the weapons law isn't changed, it won't stop.

  • Im so glad Jimmy actually responds to this. He doesn’t act like nothing happened. Even if it doesn’t affect him, like the other shootings he responds to.

  • Instead of complaining and vouching for gun control, why doesn't Jimbo here actually attempt to influence real, feasible, and effective change in this country?

  • How this guy plus Colbert plus Fallon plus Conan plus Leno and letterman In there eras could be called joking guys aka comedians is kinda dumb. They’re solid men. Kümmel is agonizing and holding back tears. Jon Stewart has been kicking butt fighting for $$ for myc fire and police.

  • To anyone who wants to keep their guns can you tell me another way to reduce the amount of shootings in the United States without using gun control?

  • THIS IS NOT THE GD GUNS!
    THIS IS A CASE BY CASE!
    THIS IS MENTALLY UNSTABLE MINDS!
    DEAL WITH THE REAL THING…SICK UNSTABLE MINDS.
    IT IS NOT THE GUNS FOR GODSAKE!!!
    WE SUPPORT THE NRA!
    🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  • I'm all for the empathy for the lost, but the lies he spews about gun stats and gun laws is atrocious. Even what he says automatic and semi automatic weapons is completely false.
    — I don't own a gun and don't think I would, but even I know more about guns and gun laws than this clown.
    — The only people who would spew this nonsense is someone who knows Absolutely nothing about guns and our gun laws. Literally nothing.

  • This is a worldwide issue and not just Americans. Were all affected by these mass shootings that happen in US. WHY IS IT SO HARD TO CHANGE AND REALIZE IT?!

  • Such a tragic event prayers to all victims families. What's more of a crime is jimmy Kimmel is just making a political act .

  • It's a very awful thing that happened but he's an idiot for knowing nothing about guns and then trying to say semi automatic weapons aren't used for self defense

  • Wanna stop mass shootings then stop making them Hollywood news Jimmy! you and the rest of tv need to stop and do your part.

  • Wow Jimmy always making ppl laughing…this was tragic n bad 2 ppl i knew were in that the nurse from tn is the husband of the woman i knew jimmy mentioned.

  • After watching this segment, I went to look up the senators who voted against the background checks Bill here, and I found out that both of my state senators Joni Ernst and Chuck Grassley voted against it. I'm absolutely disgusted that those two people are "representing" me, I absolutely believe we need background checks so really they're not representing what I stand for

  • “No one should own m16s or ten of them” guess what jimmy, YOU CANT. Do your research an m16 is very different from an ar15 don’t put them in the same group because they look similar
