Bangkok Billy, do you have a link to the information about the sane Mr. Paddock?

Separately, NPR commenters have thus far nothing negative to say about President Trump's brief speech.

#27 Raw Story reports Mr. Paddock is basically retired, spending his time gambling and going to shows. Also, there were 22,000 attending the Country & Western festival.

Most of the commenters at the link assume the shooter is a rightwing NPR type, and they are nasty about it.

Charles,
Any link to Venezuela or Cuba today, any link to pre WWII Nazi Germany under Hitler, or to orders from King George of England during the American Revolution demanding un armed citizens in the colonies will show you what happens to entire populations that are unarmed.

The Vegas massacre was a gun free zone. Even hotel security was to have no weapons. The crazies do thier homework.

#70 The Media haven't mentioned if the kiler was a Democrat and hated Trump supporters and one would assume that he thought that people who attended the Country Music concert which was his target would also ne likely Trump Supporters.

And an analysis of other wacko mass muderers have tended to be Democrats. The last one who shot up the Congressman at a baseball game was a Bernie supporter. Remember? There have been numerous others...Democrats with guns.

But the Media doesn't even ask those questions. The Media is incompetent AND stupid.

#71 Based on the number of rounds per burst he was emptying 30 round clips at each burst. 600 casualties indicated he fired off probably at least a dozen clips, probably more.

#74 The range here was over 400 meters. With nearly automatic fire, the 5.56 rounds would be just random, and 7.62 would be only accurate on the first shot of a burst. To injure 600 people would require at least 3000 rounds. Probably twice that much.

I dont't know about you, but I have not fired more than a couple hundred rounds at the range per trip to the range, which took about an hour.

He was not shooting anything that could be legal in any jurisdiction.

It is a damn shame that crazy people violate our gun laws and shoot people.
