it's just awful! 
Difficult to understand what would make a person do such a thing. 
Obviously a lot of questions need to be asked. Just hope they ask the right ones!

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

this is truely sad on so many levels , there is no forgiveness in store for that criminal , the talking heads have been analizing it every which way , there was only one hope to stop it - someone needed to question everything he brought in , it was excessive even for rich las vegas types , someone saw more than nbormal here and failed to call it out/question it , 

why can these types of people not just be happy eliminating themselves instead of involving so many innocents ?

I'm wondering if it isn't a case of "imitation"?
Little over a month ago, I'm flickin thru TV channels. Landed on a "cop-type" show. It was about some sniper dude taking a hotel room on the 20 something floor - cuts out the window, & opens fire on a concert, below.
Sounds familiar? Its like Hollywood comes up with these plots, & people do it!!

One thing is for sure we haven't heard the whole story yet.
Some very odd things regarding tge GF & her trip overseas are bubbling to the top & then there are a bunch of very high ticket cash deals, some of which were sent overseas to the GF.

Now it seems she had multiple SS numbers & names & multiple husbands as well!
The press has released some images of the room in the aftermath they're claiming there's a note (contents unrevealed) also.
Multiple rifles (Ar-15 type mostly) with piles of 100-round magazines & Slide fire's "Bumpfire" stocks. He'd done a lot more planning than was thought too.
Multiple suites in different buildings.
TV cameras at & outside the door so he could observe remotely all connected to a laptop.

This one is going to get really strange I think as more info comes to light.

One thing consistent with all other mass shootings: The politicians are screaming for gun control. They're calling for bans on semi-auto's, automatics, high-cap mags, large ammo purchases.Some are demanding complete gun bans. I heard one on TV last night suggesting "Australian type gun control."

A lot of questions need to be answered on this one.
1. The brother in Florida sets off my BS alarm.
2. The girlfriend just HAPPENED to be out of the country ?
3. How did he get so many firearms from the vehicle to the room?
4. How did the guns escape the notice of the housekeeping staff?

Who, what, where, why, when, and how?

No wonder they wanted her so intently...
There was a report earlier that said friends / acquaintances say he berated her severly in public often.

It will be interesting to see what comes out of the investigation. The TV coverage here should some footage from the concert crowd's video/smartphone recordings. At one point It sounded like there were more than one automatic firearm on the go. However it could have been echo maybe. 
Did anyone slip away before the SWAT team turned up?
And how do you get that many weapons into a hotel without anyone seeing anything? 
Meanwhile the families of the victim's need to come to terms with their loss; our thoughts should also be with them!
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

AFAIK
Buckeye 55
She was "sent away" by him. He bought a ticket & gave it to her.
He had booked multiple suites & had a few days to smuggle them in, he's quote as having "more than 10 suitcases" you can get a lot in 10 suitcases over 3 or 4 days.
"Do Not Disturb" tags on the doors? (just guessing).

Zed
He had several guns in different calibers & was reloading by swapping magazines maybe he was swapping guns so it sounds different.
The timeline for this is complex, almost a 60 minute break between him ceasing firing & SWAT breaching the door.
I'm guessing he packed them into all those suitcases?

Thursday, September 28

Gunman Stephen Paddock checks into the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas.

He uses the ID of his Australian girlfriend Marilou Danley.

Over a four-day period he smuggles 23 weapons into the hotel room in at least 10 suitcases.

Sunday, October 1

9:40pm

Singer Jason Aldean is performing in front of a 22,000-strong crowd for the final show at the Route 91 Harvest festival.

10:08pm

There are reports that "multiple shots" are being fired towards the concert.

Later, police reveal shooter Stephen Paddock smashed through the glass of his 32nd floor room before firing towards concert-goers.

Jason Aldean flees the stage.

10:14pm

Fox News reports that audio from an officer states: "I'm inside the Mandalay Bay on the 31st floor, I can hear the automatic fire coming from one floor ahead, one floor above us."

10:19pm

Newsweek reports that four officers head towards the 32nd floor of the hotel.

10:24pm

An officer on the 32nd floor says the room is 135.

Within minutes a security guard is reportedly shot in the leg.

"He shot down the hallway and hit a security guard," audio of police states saying there's a "four-man" team on the floor with "another element coming to us".

They ask for the 29th floor to be cleared saying they believe there are at least two shooters with fully automatic weapons.

It's almost one hour before police enter Paddock's room

10:38pm

Police ask people to stay away from the area.

11:00pm

Parts of Las Vegas Boulevard are shut down by police.

11:20pm

A SWAT team breaches the room occupied by shooter Stephen Paddock, who has killed himself.

Police find 23 firearms in the hotel room, including AK47s, a Colt AR-15 and three FN-15 rifles.

The death toll stands at 20, with more than 100 injured.

Police confirm more than 50 people have died, and more than 200 are injured.

5:33am

Police identify the suspect as 64-year-old apartment manager Stephen Paddock and say there are now more than 400 people injured.

8:44am

The death toll reaches 58 with 515 injured.

Tuesday, October 3

2:00pm

Police reveal Paddock had set up three cameras ahead of the attack, allegedly so that he could see if anyone was coming to take him into custody.

Two cameras were placed outside of the hotel suite, including one on a service cart in the hallway.

Another camera was placed inside of the hotel room door's peephole.

Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley is named as a person of interest.

8:30pm

Breaking now:

"Stephen Paddock, who killed at least 58 people and wounded hundreds more in Las Vegas on Sunday with high-powered rifles, was prescribed an anti-anxiety drug in June that can lead to aggressive behavior, the Las Vegas Review-Journal has learned.

Records from the Nevada Prescription Monitoring Program obtained Tuesday show Paddock was prescribed 50 10-milligram diazepam tablets by Henderson physician Dr. Steven Winkler on June 21.

A woman who answered the phone at Winkler’s office would not make him available to answer questions and would neither confirm nor deny that Paddock was ever a patient.

Paddock purchased the drug — its brand name is Valium — without insurance at a Walgreens store in Reno on the same day it was prescribed. He was supposed to take one pill a day.

Diazepam is a sedative-hypnotic drug in the class of drugs known as benzodiazepines, which studies have shown can trigger aggressive behavior. Chronic use or abuse of sedatives such as diazepam can also trigger psychotic experiences, according to drugabuse.com."

You would think that a single person moving in to a hotel for a few day's with 10 suitcases would appear odd to hotel staff. 
It's a very odd situation. 
Unfortunately the millions of sane gun owner's will probably end up loosing some of their liberty due to this nutter!
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Every time we have one of these events the politicians want to take away the guns of everyone who WASN"T involved in the shooting.

They need to take a serious look at the criminal justice system and the way we deal with mental health issues.
