    Witness in the area reporting on CNN that the police are now rushing to the Bellagio due to a possible additional shooter there. My speculation, but this could obviously be a coordinated attack...or one helluva coincidence, if it happens to be true.
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    We are getting reports of it here as well.
    The flight was uneventful, which is what one wants when one is transporting an Elephant.

    "Las Vegas: Mass casualties in Mandalay Bay shooting......."

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-41466116

    "At least two people have been killed and 24 others wounded in a mass shooting at a Las Vegas concert.
    A gunman opened fire at an open-air country music festival at the Mandalay Bay Hotel on the city's strip."

    Full auto. They think the shots came from one of the Mandalay Bay Hotel towers.

    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.
  • Big ChiefBig Chief Senior Member Posts: 32,995 Senior Member
    They are saying he had a camera set up outside his room so he could see the police responding, he had two firing tables set up. Not clear if SWAT shot him or he committed suicide.

    Chief of police says it's not terrorism... I guess he misplaced his dictionary? :bang:

    Not as in Islamic Terror from what we have been told so far, but his female friend who was found in another country said he was using her credentials, she is or was an employee there. I dunno if she was his GF, had a room he used or what. She also had some connection to Dubai or something as in living or working there in her past I read.

    He was an accountant, sued another hotel in Vegas before, had a pilots lic# and she lived with him in Mesquite NV for a few years.

    That info was on a clip in that story someplace.

    Just saw a video clip on the news, if its not full auto, it's a bump fire stock. No way that was a semi auto with the sustained and even rate of fire

    Felonia McPantsuit did not even wait for the bodies to all be recovered before issuing a statement blaming the NRA.

    All the usual suspects are lining up to dance in the blood of the victims. Heartless cretins.

    I am trying to reason why a 64 year old white man would fire on 22,000 country music fans and only one thing comes to mind, anti-Trump.

    Prayers for the victims and their families, just wow.

    If those reports are true, I'm guessing the woman influenced him. ISIS usually doesn't claim any responsibility unless they really were involved.............all this NOT confirmed yet.

    Why do they pull Tom Brokaw out of the old folks home every time there is a shooting. Some of the BS be spews is incredible.

    They are amazed someone could get weapons and ammo into a hotel. They every heard of SHOT show?. I've been to matches in places i've had to stay in hotels and brought 3 rifles in bags, 3 pistols in hard cases and a couple ammo cans right through the lobby and up the elevator on their cart. Never had anyone say a thing.

    NSSF has a big shooting event there in a couple weeks, I wonder how that will go.

    Which is why there is ZERO point in mentioning, well, any details. The "if it bleeds it leads" crowd (ALL news outlets, Fox included ) are going to throw any and everything out there and see what sticks. It's best to wait a week or three to begin to understand what really happened.

    True, but Robert's doesn't report rumors, there is something to it they are investigating. He is in the WH everyday for their daily press briefings and asking questions. So at least there is a reason they are are digging deeper into any Islamic connection. They have to be sure.

    Sadly, it would "Make More Sense" if it turns out to be true for someone to commit that act of evil.

    Again, ISIS (usually believe it or not) only claims responsibility if they were involved or influenced someone online to convert and do evil things.

    If they (ISIS) didn't have any involvement, they are probably besides themselves with joy over it.

    If his GF is a Muslim (as it has been reported from Indonesia)............well DUH................I'd be looking very close at her and see if there were any dots to connect.

    Prayer for the victims of this mess. :angel2:

    Still too early for the Sheriff to make any real statement regarding motive. Too big a crime scene and gathering evidence is going to be a really long process. Give them time to sort it all out. The guy had several properties that are being searched. Maybe the anus chapeau left something in writing or otherwise that will explain why he did it. Seems he finally took the coward's way out and offed himself rather than shoot it out with the police or surrender. That may make it impossible to ever know why.

    If what I saw and heard from reportedly the scene was correct, he was using an automatic weapon. Firing was definitely quick.

    Maybe one or more rifles equipped with bump fire stocks? That would be much simpler than getting true full auto weapons. From the long range and overhead vantage point he had, it looks like it was a "spray and pray" event, not aimed fire.

    Just saw a video clip on the news, if its not full auto, it's a bump fire stock. No way that was a semi auto with the sustained and even rate of fire

    So sad...saw the news in the morning (Local pinko media is blaming Trump and the NRA already, while calling for more local gun owning restrictions like there were none) and from the burst sound showed on the videos it seemed to me that not precisely real automatic fire, but rather like using one of those trigger cranking devices or a bump-fire stock; only investigations will reveal the truth.

    For propaganda issues ISIS might claim responsibility on almost any situation like this...quite odd considering the perpetrator's background.

    Not being "minority related" MSM might "only" use this to attack the POTUS, his administration, the NRA, the 2nd. Amendment and gun owners in that order of priorities.

    I think this jeopardizes next year's SHOT show....will see.
