Terrorist attack in Las Vegas

Post by sanfordandson » Mon Oct 02, 2017 9:51 am

Sad images coming out of Vegas today. As of now 50 dead and 400 or more injured. Police are saying the guy shot from the 32 floor and had 10 rifles.

"They" (all of "them") won't call it terrorism. It's absolutely terrorism. It might not be Islamic Terrorism but it's terrorism. At this time I don't know what could have been done to prevent this, or even stop it sooner. I predict the snowflakes will make this be political. "An old white guy with a gun" or something like that.
I used to be a people person, but people ruined it.

No matter who it is, anybody willing to do that has severe mental problems.

His father at one time was on the FBI most wanted list.

I just came from the Bullet's thread about this and it is way long.

So just what are the, "Cliff-Notes", if we have them now over here?

Police found the room because smoke from all the shooting set off the smoke detector in the room:

I hope they are able to get the serial numbers off the guns used as well as the ammunition so that it can be traced back to others.

Bump-stock AK-47's and SKS's, or what was used?

Imagine what would be the reaction if "rocket man" had taken credit for this carnage.

About the same as when ISIS tried to claim it this morning.

I'm curious, how many exits are there from those rooms?
Yeah so very very sad and horrible. But this is nothing if the North Korean's come here and our Marxist socialist communist demo c rats take your means of protection away.

His buddy took 3 shots to the chest from automatic fire from over 400 yards away from an assault rifle in the dark.

But he's gonna be OK.
Someone else died in his arm but there's no blood.
Did he go home, get washed and changed then come back?


What's the chances of that happening?

Is this another case of prescription drugs setting someone off?

Not something this well planned. The guy had been in the hotel for a few days and methodically snuck in over 20 guns. He had another 20 guns at home. All planned around a large festival. He knew what the lines of sight needed to be. This was not random or on a whim.

Which makes it so strange they have not found anything about the plan or motive...at least not that they are admitting too yet. Normally when people are trying to make a statement and are willing to kill and die for it they tell you what that statement is???? Weird.
