Not saying it was antifa, but I call bullshit right out of the gate. Police have a hunch he had an accomplice. They said it last night at the press conference. Makes it hard for me to trust anything else factcheck has to say after that.

DID PADDOCK ACT ALONE?

Las Vegas police said they don’t believe Paddock acted alone in orchestrating America’s deadliest mass shooting.

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of Clark County is leading the investigation into Sunday’s attack and said the sheer volume of weapons, careful planning and discovery of explosives pointed to the fact that “he had to have some help”.

“You look at the weapon obtaining, the different amounts of Tannerite (explosives) available, do you think this was all accomplished on his own?” Sheriff Lombardo said.

“On face value, you’ve got to make the assumption he had to have some help at some point, and we want to ensure that that’s the answer.”

I know of a fella that bought the vault out of a closed bank and built it into the side of his house. He has a large weapons collection. You can walk into any farm and home store and buy tannerite, I don't see any reason he couldn't have acted alone.

I'm only showing the difference between factcheck.org and what the police said. Not sure how much fact checking they really do.

I'm not sure. What bothered me about that statement was that right before he said it he mildly scolded the press for assuming facts. Then he goes on to tell the press how he has this feeling. That's the same as an assumption! It's all very ****ed up.

Re-reading that, it is a very scary choice of words coming from a government enforcement officer. Nice work Limey.

Btw, I was never aware of bumps stocks. I by no means intend to diminish this tragedy, but I find that invention genius.

I can say with no doubt, I could have pulled it off with no help. Following all the laws, not drawing attention, no question I could have done it, with no assistance. I do not have any knowledge or training that isn’t readily available on the internet. The scenario isn’t crazy either. He was engaging an area target the size of a football field, with a sub-10lb rifle. It’s not only “possible”, but easy.

the only difference between me and him is motivation, that is what they need to find

Out of all the possible scenarios the only one that makes any sense is the undercover FBI dude?
How many guns did he have in his motel room? I read it was like 23?
You might think it's a lot quicker just to pick up another weapon instead of reloading but really it's not that much of a advantage.
Me I would of had 2 auto's one sniper and a hand gun or 2 that's it not 23 guns it really doesn't make much sense.

It doesn’t make sense. If I was going to shoot cyclic with a rifle not designed to sustain that rate, I would want atleast 5-7 rifles. I would keep 4 in rotation at my firing position, so they have time to cool. They only come with a 30rd mag to keep carried weight down, and to keep them from over heating. Look at the rifles in the pic, see how chalky the barrels are? He got them nice and toasty. I would keep 1-2 rifles at my overwtch position on the breach point to the room. That also brings up another point. This guy thought this out well enough to bring a 3lb hammer to bust windows, but he didn’t take 30min to cram every piece of movable furniture in front of the entry. That tells me he had no intention of dying in that room. He wasn’t barricaded inside, he was planning on walking out.

it is just strange indeed

The guy likes his casino comps, if he can get someone else to pay for something he will. I say he wanted to shoot some folks up (went bust, got angry?)and cons Isis into thinking they radicalized him. They funnel some cash his way, giving him the thrill of building his arsenal on somebody else's dime.
