I was just reading about that.  Do they say it is full-auto or can you tell by the videos?  I have not watched the videos yet.

Prayers to the victims and families.

  The firing is full auto , but it could be a crank fire or maybe a bump fire or its a converted to full auto . To me the sound almost sounded like a crank fire , where there is a hand crank of the trigger guard , but hard to tell until they inspect the firearm . Definitely more then a 30 rd. mag. & he had multiple fireArms in the room , may have not had to reload mags , because there were pauses in firing like he changed Mags or picked up another firearm .

  The POS had a set up with platforms for shooting from the 32 nd fl. room . Now its 50+ dead & over 400 wounded . Shooting down into the concert crowd , nowhere to hide from an elevated shooting position . Some say he took himself out when the LE entered the room, only a rumor though .

Apparently had a camera set up so he knew when police arrived.  Shooting into a country music festival?

I watched a video and it is definitely something to make it rapid-fire like you said.  One article I read said he "was known to local authorities," whatever that means.  It was not elaborated on.

There are human beings and then there are people out there with this view.

From another site, the guy had a Facebook page laced with anti-Trump rants. Facebook took it down ASAP. Hmmmm. Imagine that. It's going to take some digging, but I bet it will probably come out this POS is another left-wing ideologue.

Let's not assume anything until we know. That just adds fuel to the fire. It's bad enough as it is. Paddock's story, whatever it is, will b e coming to light soon.

Problem there is if the story we are given is the real story. Im always suspicious when the bacground is sanitized.  Hopefully screen shots were taken.

A friend moved to Vegas two years ago and works event security. He was fortunate that he was working an event on the other side of town last night. Like he said, this type of situation is always in the back of their minds. He also said that Las Vegas has a top notch group of First Responders from the police, to paramedics, to emergency services, and he heard from associates that the job they did last night on the scene was amazing. Death toll would have been far worse without their efforts.

Maybe, but making assumptions  right now will just throw fuel on the fire. Got enough hatred in this country to last a long while as it is.

ISIS is claiming responsibility.

CAIRO, Oct 2 (Reuters) - Islamic State has claimed responsibility for a shooting that killed at least 50 people and wounded over 400 in Las Vegas early on Monday, and said the attacker had converted to Islam a few months ago.

"The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried it out in response to calls to target states of the coalition," the group's news agency Amaq said in reference to the U.S.-led coalition fighting the group in the Middle East.

"The Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago," Amaq added. (Reporting by Ali Abdelaty; Writing by Arwa Gaballa; Editing by Ahmed Aboulenein)

Fingers crossed we didn't lose a member of our staff there. No one knows if he was going, but he's a huge fan of Vegas and of country music. So far he hasn't shown up today and there has been no contact. 

Praying it's just a coincidence.

He's good. They finally got ahold of the guy-bad morning for him to oversleep his alarm. 

 

Two minutes before we heard he wasn't here another guy had mentioned he was surprised Brian hadn't been at the concert. In walks one of the managers wanting to know if anyone had heard from him. 

I am curious to hear the details behind this story as they come out. I don't care what side the guy was from-it's a nutjob either way.

Whether isis had anything to do with it or not we should hit them hard just for talking about, find the people running this "amaq" and smoke'em, but then no press release, just do it and move on.

So far so good but I'm not going to hold my breath, the anti 2A's are building a box around him right now.

Hard lesson on situational awareness. Prayers for the deceased and the injured, and a shout out to the LEOS and first responders who kept it from being worse.

Take out the CIAs pet army? Doubtful.  

 

The company I work for in vegas usually does the armed security for Mandalay events but house security was running this one. I just got a txt  requesting we be on standby to help for any that could make it up there. Vegas is gonna be a shitshow for the next week at least.

Fuck all the people jumping on anti guns fuck all the people bashing trump and hoping only trump supports dried fuck the media for all their assumptions.

 

praise to all those who ran towards the gun fire and those hospital workers working around the clock, praise to all the people lined up this morning to give blood this morning. 

 

 

Talked to one of my good friends this morning he was 3-4 floors below the shooter. He's a mess, safe but he's a mess........

I used Google maps to estimate the range.

Approx. 400 yards from the hotel to the middle of the arena. Plus elevation of 320ish feet (assuming 10 feet per floor).

The communists will use any excuse to try to disarm the opposition.  My wife and I are heading to Las Vegas Thursday with reservations at the Luxor, essentially next door.  Ought to be an interesting trip.

I'm more worried about a serious re-visit of the "Assault Weapons Ban."

So... I purchased 2 insurance policies this morning. 1 FAR-15 lower and 1 FAR-308 lower. Trying to beat the price increase and scarcity that will follow.
