    It appears more than a random act of evil. Too well planned to be someone who just snapped. I hate how long it takes to hear the facts.

    I pray I never have to experience that personally!

    If we ever hear the facts, they said he had 10 guns in the rooms, and I think now the toll is over 50 deaths heard 58 at noon and over 500 wounded. I think it would have taken over 1000 rounds of ammo, maybe closer to 1500. He would have had to had all the magazines loaded so it would take 30-50 of them.

    ISIS claims responsibly, maybe they were set up in the room adjacent to his killed him and opened fire :thumb:

    How ever it happened it is a damned shame

    Because lobotomies and shock therapy were deemed cruel and inhumane.

    Very sad. It scares me to think what the world will be like as my Sons and my Grandsons get older.

    It has been reported he had ANTIFA literature in his room.

    (An ANTIFA guy targeting a bunch of "country music" fans?)

    Well, I sure hope that's not true.

    If it is true, it'd be a great step toward igniting the long-burning fuse of race war.

    A good friend was on property when this happened, he is fine, but the texts from him yesterday were nutso.

    The shooter apparently was a known gambler with recent big losses, alleged overall good guy who likely flipped after losing his life savings to the tables. I doubt this has any relation to the nuts overseas. Whatever happened, its fugging sad as hell.

    My GF had a couple of her good friends trapped on a bus on their honeymoon. They were heading back to the hotel and got surrounded by police and eventually evacuated onto the grass nearby.
