He had help, and I bet 100:1 his girl friend is 100% involved. She admitted she helped him load his magazines!

Unless there is someone else they are looking for, I don't understand why any of this would remain secret.

The killier is dead he won't be prosecuted. There are two reasons the government operates in secrecy.

Information is power. Once it's shared the value is lost.

There is money at stake. Mandelay Bay has deep pockets, People screwed up and the more information that gets out the more vulnerable they are. Vegas and the feds takes care of the big guys and not the losers that have the suits

FBI says gunman spent a lot of time doing things to cover his tracks. Him or someone else?

His sniper roost was booked under his name. He was going to be the prime suspect if he survived. Same if he died. If he acted alone, he had nothing to gain by thwarting an after action investigation.


Excellent point.

If the girlfriend didn't know anything, how come, four hours after it happened, but an hour before they released her boyfriend's name, she deleted her facebook account?

I'm not sure what this link is worth. It seems only to be speculation. I have zero confidence in the LVPD.

Congressman says terrorist link to shooting.

Not sure about website bias. Congressman gives no evidence.

L.V. wants their income stream to stay stable.

When a repeat of what happened at M.B. occurs, how many are going there....?

The horror will be repeated at L.V. and somewhere else, like where you are...

Arm yourself if haven't already.

The next one will not be as bad since bump stocks will be eliminated from the equation. Nothing to worry about.

That eases my mind. Because nothing is scarier than a gun that works like a shake weight.

Interesting how they know and have focused on this.

Friday’s report said Stephen Paddock bought nearly double the number of firearms in the year leading up to the attack that he'd bought in the 24 years after his first gun purchase in 1982.

“From 1982 through September of 2016, Paddock purchased 29 firearms. These purchases consisted of handguns, shotguns and one rifle,” it read. “From October 2016 through September 2017, Paddock purchased over 55 firearms."

It continued: "Most of the firearms purchased from 2016 through 2017 were rifles in various calibers along with over 100 firearm related items through numerous retailers. The firearm-related items included scopes, cases, bump stocks and ammunition."

Maybe they put it there. It's the only way to be sure.
