    Post At leaste 50 people killed in Las Vegas 400 injured, possible ISIS attack

    Wow how crazy 50 people were killed , another 400 injured last night, at a concert in Las Vegas, as 64 year old Paddock opened fire. Nobody knows what triggered this event, some are speculating he converted to Islam and joined the Islamic State. Others, are saying that it has nothing to do with ISIS and he acted on his own. A few interesting things, normally shooters are male, white and young he is in his mid 60s. What makes me sick to my stomach is about three months ago, I was at a Ramstein concert at the T Mobile arena so that could have easily been me. LVMPD mentioned that he had nine high powered automatic rifles, the type that Rambo would use. That is why he was able to take out so many people. parts of Las Vegas blvd on the strip are still closed. RIP to the victims and their families, condolences. Here are some interesting facts we know about the guy from his brother.
    1-He has no military background
    2-He has no history of being an avid shooter or gun person
    3-No signs of radicalization or ISIS although that is what they will claim.


    RIP to the victims and their families, condolences. This hits home because I think maybe one friend, a very nice Persian Russian girl in San Diego could have been killed. I do not know what is going on or have any news. https://www.yahoo.com/gma/active-sho...opstories.html

    That aint no right, dat aint no ISIS attack!
    Stephen Paddock did it. The 64 year-old man was not previously known to police, police admit!
    Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said investigators found "in excess of 10 rifles" in the hotel room that Paddock checked into on 28 September.
    The FBI said its agents had established no connection between Paddock and any overseas terrorist group, despite a claim from so-called Islamic State.

    I tell you this homy, uncle hombre trump will ban all "64-years old fellas" from entering US from today on!


    Poor, poor souls out there fell victim for a fucking lunatic!
    GOD BLESS and RIP!

    I haven't stayed at any of the suites at Mandalay Bay because I have a house here but I visited the casino. This is such a tragedy and nobody saw it coming. From early reports this guy had no formal military or weapons training and was not pro ISIS or anything like that. LVMPD did a wonderful job responding, 58 people were killed biggest massive shooting in modern US history but more people could have died. Quick update, thank God my friend is ok, she is recovering at the hospital, that is all I know. I told her that she is welcomed over and if there is anything I could do. This is the world in which we live in, what is scary is three months ago I was at a Ramstein concert at the T Mobile arena. This easily could have happened to me, RIP to those who lost their lives, condolences to their families. It makes more of an impact when something like this happens in not only your country but your city.

    Babr jan well LV Blvd is open and sdo are the freeways, at least the POS did us a favor and took himself out. You should be fine which hotel are you staying on I am assuming you will be on the strip. Enjoy your time it is actually very pleasant weather so you are coming at the right time.

    Such a terrible tragedy .....they should have banned guns specially automatic rifles years ago ,they should have never been allowed ,why would a civilian need a M-16 or a AK47 or similar such weapons of war ?! how would you stop morons or sick in the head people who have so easy access to weapons of war ?

    @Ogah jan apparently he was able to get his hands on nine full auto's. It is not illegal to get semi auto's like AR10s, AR15s but it is illegal to get M16's and AK47s. CA has one of the strictest gun control laws, Nevada is more on the liberal side, at least for now. In Nevada you do not need a CCW but if you should. Time will tell what will happen with the gun control laws in Nevada after this tragic incident. Open carry is permitted, Nevada is a shall issue state. Open carry is generally permitted throughout the state. For open carry in a vehicle, the firearm may be anywhere except concealed upon the person without a concealed firearm permit. As for concealed carry, for long guns no for short guns yes.

    The old argument is citizens being able to form a militia against the ruling class or government. It still has merit, but if we want to stay true to its purpose, citizens must be allowed to own heavy weapons like RPGs and machinery such as tanks.

    I'm actually in favor of ordinary citizens having access to such things instead of only a select few organizations with special interests.

    It's actually surprising these mass shootings are such a rare occurrence. Scientifically and based on the percentage of humans with mental/personality disorders, there should be many more mass shootings everywhere.

    One day in the distant future, all newborns will have a chip in their body that will detect homicidal and suicidal thoughts and render the person crippled until authorities arrive. A "crime-vaccine"

    @BT you are right and this is is part of the 2nd amendment. A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. I too am surprised that there are not more mass shootings and I was discussing this with friends. I am surprised this was the first mass shooting in Las Vegas and it did not happen before. Also, your prediction about the future could very well be possible one day. @Real Madrid, I did not know you were in town last week, there will definitely be more security at resorts and sporting events. The Raiders are scheduled to come either 2019 or 2020 so when they build the new stadium, I am sure they will have security and enforce rules like no tailgating, what a shame.

    I am not sure what you are saying here ,why would lethal weapons be so easily accessible , how many of those who shot and kill someone out of anger regret it later for the rest of their life ? wishing they didn't have a gun and in that moment of anger resorted to kicks and punches .

    I don't know but is it like that in Canada too ?

    where is the merit in it ? apart from the arm industry cashing in ?

    The argument about background checks doesn't work any more either. They say good guys should have guns. Well the Vegas shooter was a good guy. He fit the profile of a decent law-abiding American, no past criminal record, nothing. Then bang.
