It's terrible that things like this are becoming common... it seems like there is a new mass shooting every month these days :(

Im curious to find out his motives. It is being played off by both sides of the political aisle for points right now. I read an article where he referred to himself as a "professional" gambler to people. This might just be a case of him losing all his cash in Vegas and going berserk.

According to all the news I have seen, this guy had no reason at all to do this. He was a millionaire, owned lots of rental properties, had tons of friends and great family members etc.

The only possible reason I can think of would be if he lost all his money gambling somehow, since he was a self-described "professional high-stakes gambler"... but even then he had houses and rental properties he could have sold to get some money back. His brother said the family could have easily paid off any debt he might have had for him too.

If he lost all his money gambling, I would think he would have shot up the casino he lost it at too, not some random concert filled with strangers that had no relation to gambling.

None of this makes any sense.

Agree with Capt. Norrington, It doesn't make any sense. I fill like there is something that either is not being given out or has been discoveried. I been watching my new feeds on my phone. Only thing that come to light is that his father was a bank robber and was on the FBI most wanted list.

Even that radically group is taking responsiblity which I doubt they were involved. (I will not use their name cause it defiles my favorite Egyptian Gods name)

.... A rational person cant comprehend a crazy person.
aye, this is the God's honest truth although the PC term is mentally disabled. my ex has bi-polar disorder and it took me 10 years to finally understand his thought process.

as for the las vegas incident, who travels with multiple guns unless you are planning something? (unless he brought them along for protection.) it's not like he carried guns to go hunting in vegas. i'm waiting to hear what they learn from his girlfriend. she's probably one of the only people who might be able to give some insight to this senseless violence.

If they were for protection I could understand bringing one or two... but he had 23... that's far beyond just protection, and even beyond the armories of some private security companies. It's also possible that he might have bought them there instead of bringing them from home. Las Vegas is one of the easiest places in the country to get whatever type, and however many guns you want with no record of buying them as long as you have the money. There is a huge black market for weapons of all types in that area.

Two shooters not just one.. I am not one for "conspiracy's" either... but check the video.. (no victims)

At the :03 marks close shots ring out and echoes for those shots are heard
about 30 seconds go by and nothing, no additional echos, no additional shots
at the :45 mark distant shots ring out and then close by shots follow them (lady was recording at the Mandalay Bay)

The two "sniper nests" in the hotel were approximately 50 feet apart. Close enough to where no huge difference in sound would have applied..

anyone have a real logical reason for this other than a second shooter?

and please don't just say "echo".. as echos do not go away for roughly 30-35 seconds and then return at the same volume they were initially heard at...

Yea, it could be a 2nd shooter or it could just be a second weapon. I'm assuming the police and officials have vetted this angle. They aren't stupid and many are ex-professionals or military. Combined they have a lot more experience than any conspiracy theorist.

Second weapon? I dunno, those shots sound like they are a good 600-700 yards away easy.. maybe even like a thousand out based on just volume alone. Even a suppressor would not have made that kind of difference...

Thank you. My thoughts as well. I have many thoughts but they all border on conspiracy theories. I will shut now, before I sound like this :tinhat:.

I would guess the 1st shots was the window, but heard on one "news" report he used a hammer. This will probably end up like Kennedy assassination, more questions than answers. At least in 50 years we might know the truth behind Kennedy assassination. (Won't say more just drawing the similarities in two cases.)

It's just as bad that you mentioned it here without a link to an article.

As for the video, multiple things can cause the sounds to change. They change when angles change when calibers change and it even changes in the vid as the car moves around. It could have even been added post production by conspiracy theorists.
