What is shocking is the reports that he bought 33 weapons over the last year and there was no way of tracing that information. Wake your ideas up, 'Murica.

Yea, me too. I feel bad thinking in such a way knowing that it could have been a festival or show I went to as opposed to a country music festival.

That is tracked. A former friend of mine was contacted by the FBI for purchasing too many guns in a short period. They talked. Nothing happened. He was then "watched."

I'm not sure. I never asked too many questions. Guns aren't my thing.

I was under the impression that the forms were kept at the point of purchase so unless there were multiple purchases from one outlet it couldn't be tracked.

Would it be politicizing the issue to mention that the tax plan would have given Paddock a huge tax break?

That sounds right to me. Supposedly the FBI/ ATF are prevented from generating a registry. In practice, the intelligence agencies probably have a defacto record.

A 64 year old white guy with a gun interest isn't that uncommon. In fact, its often claimed that the large increase in gun ownership is largely due to a relatively small number of collectors with a lot of guns.

Its probably abnormal to have a large number of AR/ AK rifles at the exclusion of a large number of handguns, but how would that be a risk indicator? Isn't this basically the 2nd shooting of this type outside of the Texas clocktower?

Most mass shooters use a rifle and handguns or just multiple handguns.

Have there been other mass shooters with 7 figure net worths? Ever? This is a weird one.

Mandalay Bay security guard vanished after visiting clinic


Yahoo News · 3 hours ago

Jesus Campos, who disappeared last week just before he was scheduled to break his silence in TV interviews, has reportedly not been heard from since.
So, how long until the crazies start saying that he was in on it?

Georgia politician holds bump stock giveaway

NBC News on MSN.com · 7 hours ago

A GOP senator running for governor in Georgia is giving away a bump stock, the modification apparently used by the Las Vegas shooter.


Well that's not tone deaf at all.

I'm leaning more towards some local yokel trying his hand at the divisive Trump approach. But you could totally be right, the guy could just be a garden-variety idiot.

This one's got the conspiracy theorists riled up.

The Vegas shooter's weird ass brother arrested on child porn charges. Big shock there.
