The mother of a three-year-old child, in her custody, has been charged with driving her car through a crowd of pedestrians in Las Vegas.

One pedestrian was killed and approximately 36 more hospitalized.

She then reportedly drove to a hotel and told a car valet to call the police.

If the weapon of choice had been a rifle with a high capacity magazine the news would be an all-day coverage affair with worldwide attention, augmented with calls for gun control.

Will we ban autos?

Of course not. Nothing is as simple as it seems, evil is always present.

Pray for the injured.
