    the same holds true for the TD's resident gun nuts....slick has just one or two posts commenting on the types of guns used....but you can bet that soon enough he'll be back to posting this....

    This looks like the kind of room the shooter would have used.



    Pic looks dead on.

    I want to know what's going on. If it is upsetting then don't watch.

    The most gruesome of all the videos was actually the first one posted on the thread.

    IMO ---- Americans need machine guns for hunting? Time to stop selling people machine guns I think.

    ...and here is a surprising statistic I was not aware of.

    Las Vegas mass shooting is 273rd of 2017

    Gun Violence Archive, a website that tracks incidents and crimes involving guns across the United States, said Sunday night's attack was the 273rd mass shooting in the country this year.

    It defines a "mass shooting" as four or more people being shot at the same time or location.

    The sound of the gunfire makes me think that it's 7.62 mm calibre ammo

    Eery.

    These smaller mass shooting have become the norm then (assuming this is accurate).

    ^ Will let you research the figures to see how accurate it is.

    ...and did you really type "smaller mass shootings"? Is that how common they have become in America?

    I did not check the facts on that BBC page. Is it wrong? I do not trust BBC at all but no, I did not check the figures.

    As for "smaller mass shootings" you know what I meant: shooting with 4-6 victims for example. It just a way of describing quantity. Perhaps a one-timeshooting of 4-6-8 people is not "mass" but "multiple."

    Semantics.

    Point taken, I meant no disrespect. R.I.P to all those who lost their lives today.

    Only in America could some fucking nutter check into a hotel with TEN rifles and no-one thinks it's even slightly abnormal.

    And apparently he wasn't an "avid gun guy"....



    Though Stephen brought at least 10 weapons into a Las Vegas hotel room for his shooting spree, Eric said his brother was typically no fan of such weaponry.
    “Not an avid gun guy at all,” Eric Paddock told CBS News outside his home in Waterford Lakes, Fla. “He has no military background or anything like that.

    It is highly likely that he didnt display the guns when entering the hotel , probably put them in a bag or something

    He stayed in the hotel for a few days before his rampage.

    He entered and left the hotel several times to clandestinely bring in that amount of weaponry.

    Hypocritical bastard.
    If there's anything good coming out of this tragedy, it's that Trump is in an invidious position. Calls for gun control will surely be loud, but that goes against his base.
    Sadly, I think his team will crunch the numbers and reach the conclusion that those calling for gun control already hate him and will hardly stop despising him even if he makes a decisive move to get rid of assault weapons, so better to keep his base happy.

    59 dead and 527 injured are the latest numbers. It was revealed that the shooter had ammonium nitrate in his car. It is very odd that there is so little information about this guy. No social media presence, no known political leanings. Nothing. Very odd.
