Or, more accurately, several.
I don't think America feels unsafe in those places just yet.

I could see casinos now...and colleges

I can't envision regular hotels, restaurants, movie theaters screeming everyone...that seems impractical.

For now.

But wait until a restaurant gets shot up.

It was impractical to have them at casinos/hotels until Sunday.

Zero.

But we still have them because it makes people feel safe.

My point was leading to who will take on the costs of buying the machines and hiring people to be at them at all times. It's a steep cost for a lot of businesses and it will cost taxpayers a lot if handled by the government.

If there is a similar festival like this one... the festival producers can order metal detectors for their own entrances but how could they control that every high rise building near them also has metal detectors? Force other business owners to pay for them? It's just not realistic unless you turn the whole city into a police state.

Yeah the Gov would pull an Australia and just ban guns before decking out the whole country in metal detectors

It is Trump though...

That whole anonymous post...if that is real we should see pretty soon, like within the next 6 months or so. If casinos start implementing metal detector systems.

If not that should let people know that a shit load of predictions get tossed around the internet so not too surprising if one gets a location right.

There's around 3-4 million cameras in the UK.

It may not be as far off as you think.

Not to mention, that's a fair compromise between gun loves and gun haters.

I'm curious myself. The post was nearly three weeks before the Vegas shooting.

Forgot what the stock was called, but I did see its been on the rise for the past few weeks.

The prediction was posted on 9-10 and predicted for 9-11

So it isn't hard to believe that people throw out a lot 'terror' predictions on the net for Sept-11, and then one just happens to get close.



It is an extremely specific post though...with a very specific plot even involving specific companies. So we will see I guess.

ha...I was debating earlier whether or not I could invest in this stuff...

morals come into play

If you invest in these companies and get rich...that basically makes you a villan

you're profiting off these murders...



I honestly don't think I can do it and feel okay about it
