Tony R, as much as I like Mark Steyn, and I don’t dismiss the expertise of his acquaintance, I think that was another case of chattering to fill the air. There are still too many ‘official’ facts with holes you could drive a tractor trailer through that don’t align with reality. I’ll wait.
@Tony R – Paddock’s casing of other large gatherings of people of a different demographic from the C&W fans he ended up murdering does serious damage to the Brit’s “analysis.” (I use the quotation marks because it is in reality conjecture that is itself begging for an analysis not offered.)
The other major flaw in the “analysis” is the assumption that Paddock left no note or manifesto explaining his mass murder. That govt agents say he didn’t is not persuasive.
@Tony R linking to Mark Steyn is the most logical theory I’ve heard to date. In my heart I know this guy was a leftist. What better way to advance your anti gun agenda than to pull off a massacre that forces lawmakers to rush toward the issue? That the targets were likely republican gun owners is a win-win for this guy.
I’m in no way convinced of anything about this tragedy. The chain of events leading up to it don’t jive, unless you want to consider conspiracy, which is probably more accurate than you think.
Arkancide? Those fucktards have been raking in a lot of money, nothing says more than a few million to kill some people. Hildabeast tweets about suppressors in her sympathy response? Liberals losing everywhere? A total nobody, a chain of events don’t support what’s reported. DJT, the demon with no actual proof he’s a demon, so they shut down everyone who opposes them.
We should have coveted her book, the failed coronation ignited the fire, so many people would still be alive today.
Why are there no bloody empties? Why is his leg under the gun with the bi pod on it?
Tommy a Bump Stock is a device that activates the trigger on recoil. I’ve never shot one. They are far to dangerous for some one who lives in California.
I have my problems with this entire thing but social media hit insanity yesterday. I’ll wait for the official cover up.
It’s not just body count. It’s about advancing an agenda.
I stayed at a hotel overlooking a Major League Baseball park. If I was just looking to set the records for kills, this place would have much easier.
Maybe with the half truths LE released and half truths on social media, we’ll eventually come to a conclusion.
Laura Loomer produced a receipt from The Mandalay showing check in 9/25 thru 10/2. Technically he “checked out” on 10/1.
I don’t buy the him casing other locations talk, he would have had to drive to Boston or Chicago. Las Vegas was an hour from his base by car. I think he was just practicing in his mind looking out the window.
I keep seeing more and more indictments of this sucker. First he had a dozen weapons, then 2 dozen, then fertilizer explosives somewhere, now 4 dozen weapons just in the room alone. I’m expecting to start seeing reports that he had a suitcase nuke, then nerve agents, then a dozen ICBMs, and finally a death star.
My two cents.
This guy was a Narcissist.
He could make tons of money several different ways – and did.
He wanted a new challenge.
He wanted to be famous.
So he commits the most heinous mass murder in history.
GF club card was in the room (not sure if the room was in her name.)
When SWAT made entry, they didn’t even know Paddock’s name.
This is what I heard on the scanner… we have a black club card on the table, (cop spelled GF name & addr 1372 Babbling Brook Ct, Mesquite, NV) then said, “this may be a roommate or girlfriend”.
Didn’t take but 2 minutes search of prop tax records before everyone knew Stephen C Paddock.
I do think it’s odd if he was such a high roller that he had her club card.
