Las Vegas: Men Who Gamble More Likely Act Violently, with Most Addicted Most Prone Serious Violence

Over 50 Americans were killed in Las Vegas. What caused the gunman to kill so many people is up to debate and investigation.

Las Vegas, of course, is a gambling town and Nevada is, of course, a cowboy state, meaning Republican. And being a Republican state, Nevada has one of the most relaxed gun laws in America (Las Vegas shooting: Nevada has some of the most relaxed gun laws in America).

The following is a study published in Science Daily (source):

Men who gamble are more likely to act violently towards others, with the most addicted gamblers the most prone to serious violence. A new study found that gambling in any capacity — pathological, problem, or so-called casual gambling — related to significantly increased risk of violence, including domestic abuse.

With this fact, should Nevada security be better and should not the gun law be more restricted?
