Police in Las Vegas are responding to reports of an active shooter near the Mandalay Bay Hotel.

At least one gunman is reported to have opened fire at a country music festival being held on the Las Vegas strip.

Videos on social media show hundreds of people fleeing from the scene. The sound of what appears to be automatic gunfire can be heard in some clips.

Las Vegas police have advised people to avoid the area. There are unconfirmed reports of multiple casualties.

Officials at the University Medical Center in Las Vegas told ABC News that it had at least 20 victims with gunshot wounds right now, with the expected to grow. The hospital did not provide information on the victims' conditions.

Over 50 dead. 200 plus wounded.
People sleep peacefully at night because there are a few tough men prepared to do violence on their behalf.

8am and over the radio, nobody knows if it was one shooter, two shooters, a shooter and accomplice, one location or several locations...
One person suggested 8 remote controlled guns... full-auto weapons, 50 caliber, 223, 308... who knows? 

Even the media spin machine was caught off-guard without a prewritten script.   Las Vegas though...?

Just snapped...?   sounds pretty well planned "snap".  Scoping out the site, finding the location to shoot from, planning the time of the event, moving guns, thousands of rounds of ammunition, and he just "snapped"...????  Several days of planning & preparation then setting up to implement - sure.   I heard the same thing on the radio, "Come on, man!!!"

With all the freaks and crazies in the world, I'm surprised we don't see more shit like this. Hell, look at the left, they wear pussy hats for christ sake, murder babies, claim we're overpopulating and destroying the world, they're always trying to kill off productive societies.
No, I really am surprised this doesn't happen weekly all in the name of Gaia.

The upside is the bastard is dead.

looks like the conclusion is that he is most likely a leftist based om the political preferences of his girlfriend/wife.

Lets watch the media spin this.h
Why am I not surprised? As my wife left this morning, she said "watch him turn out to be ANTIFA".

Some weird triangle going on here.

Geary Danley is married to Marilou Danley. Police questioned the suspect’s girlfriend Marilou Danley, 62

That's not nearly as close as it sounds on the radio.



200-300 yards maybe?

Police said Paddock had no criminal history, save a minor citation. He appears to have worked as an accountant or auditor and was a licensed hunter and private pilot.

Licensed hunter...???   What's with that?  A Nevada thing?

A distance of 300-400 yards doesn't make a lot of sense.  There's a whole cluster of buildings below, only about 100 yards.  That seems like where someone would do this from.  The layout as pictured would be totally random "raining down" of rounds, really without a target.  Maybe that makes sense if you know several thousand are bunched up elbow to elbow, but still not really.   A sniper taking one shot ? Maybe.  But not this kind of mass shooting.  You'd be just dropping thousands of rounds down on a very non-specific area, in a big arc.  Doesn't make sense.  This kind of shooting would come from the streets or buildings in the rectangle surrounding the concert.

I can't see somebody shooting at something a quarter mile away, for this kind of purpose.  That sounds more like 'plinking' than a mass shooting.

Nah, it's a Western BLM thing, where the Fed owns the majority of land in the West and dictates laws to the Governing State.
This brings us full circle to the Bundy Ranch issue.
