Many Americans have enjoyed the luxurious accommodations provided by Steve Wynn at one of his many resorts, hotels, and casinos. Sadly, 2nd Amendment supporting Americans may want to take their business elsewhere when they learn that Wynn wants to disarm them all.
Wynn was recently asked if the Las Vegas shooting, which unfolded from the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, could have taken place in one of his resorts. Wynn responded with the practiced ignorance of many anti-gun leftists, by arguing that it couldn’t have happened in one of his establishments because people aren’t allowed to have guns on his properties!
After making some comments about long sessions with a “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door, Wynn explained that at his hotels… guns are verboten.
“We don’t allow guns in this building unless they’re being carried by our employees and there’s a lot of them. But if anybody’s got a gun and we find them continually, we eject them from the hotel,” Wynn told Fox News’ Chris Wallace.
To be clear, Mandalay Bay doesn’t allow guns either.
Wynn went on to explain that his facilities have been surreptitiously checking everyone for guns for the last few years, and that as always, guns are not allowed at any Wynn property.
It’s not just Steve Wynn who’s looking for new ways to disarm law abiding Americans. His wife is hard at work on this as well, teaming with nanny state leader Michael Bloomberg in his never-ending quest to undermine our God-given rights.
Elaine Wynn, the co-founder of Wynn Resorts and former wife of Steve Wynn, has joined the effort to expand gun background checks in Nevada…
“Keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, domestic abusers, and the dangerously mentally ill isn’t a political issue; it’s common sense,” Wynn said in a statement. “Nevadans for Background Checks is ready to turn our state’s broad public support for stronger, smarter gun laws into life-saving action.”
The Nevada initiative, like a measure that passed in November in Washington state, has backing from Everytown for Gun Safety, a gun control group founded and funded by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Again, just to be clear, Nevada already has extensive background checks for everyone purchasing a gun from a gun store or a gun show, and there is even a 3-day delay in receiving the gun so this check can be done.
Ironically, both Steve and Elaine Wynn, travel with heavily armed security and enjoy a life of safety and ease thanks to the money that the family has amassed. Sadly, unlike the Wynns, most Americans don’t have untold wealth with which to pay armed men to protect them 24-hours a day 7-days a week. So, we purchase firearms to protect ourselves, protect our families, and to protect our homes.
It would be nice if the leftist elites would stop trying to force us little people to live in a way that they would never allow themselves to live. They’d never leave their own families defenseless, but they want the government to force us to live disarmed and in constant danger of being victimized.
Over at Reason.com the writers explain why stripping us of our 2nd Amendment rights will only cause liberals more problems…
It’s always been true, as gun restrictionists have repeatedly promised, that “nobody’s going to take your guns away.” But few gun owners have ever believed that was from lack of intent; it was always from the absence of any practical way of implementing such a taking. That’s become increasingly clear in the wake of the truly horrific Mandalay Bay massacre as open calls for repealing the Second Amendment’s protection for self-defense, and even for banning privately owned guns, get louder.
And still, the increasingly open prohibitionists haven’t come up with a proposal to make their plans stick.
Perhaps most prominent is Bret Stephens, a conservative columnist at the New York Times. He pointed to Stephen Paddock’s rampage in Las Vegas, as well as some alleged correlations between firearms ownership and homicide (contradicted by other research), dismissed most gun control efforts as “feckless,” and called on America to “Repeal the Second Amendment” or else “Expansive interpretations of the right to bear arms will be the law of the land—until the ‘right’ itself ceases to be.”
