Regarding Last Night’s Tragedy…

We come to work with heavy hearts today, and last night’s senseless acts will undoubtedly touch each of us at here at the “Pawn Stars” family. So far it appears our staff and their families are OK, the Pawn Shop is open and downtown Las Vegas is business as usual, as far as appearances go. However all of us are still taking in the full magnitude of last night’s events and there is a very real sense of apprehension each time the phone rings or a new social media post comes through.

Our hearts and prayers go out to all those who were at the concert last night and especially the victims, their families and friends. To allay the immediate needs of our community, I have offered the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop staff paid time off for anyone wishing to donate blood and I urge everyone who is able in Southern Nevada to participate.

These things should not happen in our country and I want to encourage everyone in our Las Vegas hometown and all over the USA to do all they can to help those impacted and our leaders to do what they can to prevent future incidents like these.

    We here in the UK share the shock and grief felt by you all. Too many times people out enjoying themselves have been caught in a act of senseless violence both in the UK and US. We stand together in another time of sadness.

    Shock at what unfolded there in Vegas, no doubt survivors will suddenly realize they hit the jackpot by not leaving Vegas rich, but alive. Had to check here to make sure no one I knew had been involved as the people on your show and American Restoration are about the only people I know from Las Vegas. Your show has a lot of characters who sus-out the goods so I hope they’re all right as well. As for your show, my wife and I love it! We use the catch-up TV feature to watch the weeks worth in 1 hit and make a night of the reality tv shows. Your old man is a legend IMO, a real character.

    Might have to buy something online for her from your shop for Christmas, maybe something you (ie Chumlee) paid big $$$ for but was a $1 fake.

    As time passes its hared to understand his motivation. People should be able to attend a concert. Rick I agree, our leaders need to do more to prevent something like this from happening again.

    We should all pray for the victims families, and hope the injured can recover quickly. Prayers for Las Vegas.

    The Entwistle bass guitar (the body was sort of shaped like a lyre and blue) i am pretty sure it was in the movie tommy i think it appears in the scene when they are in a church with eric clapton on guitar, so check out the movie and if possible and it is featured in tommy its probably worth mega bucks. p.s. love the show.
