    Yes but the reports are he is NOT a military vet so that rules that out unless they're wrong.

    I seriously doubt any political motivation is the root source here. I think it's probably a mentally ill guy.

    Regardless of his motivation, dude was crazy. No sane person does this sort of thing.

    Good grief man. That's just sad. It seems like the man went to war at this point.

    Re: Mass shooting in Las Vegas

    USAToday has an article that goes something like "Celebs React to Las Vegas Shooting" and it really irritated me and has soured my mood. I don't give a flying flip what Lady Gaga or Usher tweeted out. I want to hear from our leaders and law enforcement - I don't take my cues from social trash on how I should respond to these kinds of situations and printing their dumb-butt tweets frames it like they are the band leaders of grief. It just struck me like in a time of grief we don't know what else to do than to look to our pop-stars and celebs to tell us how we should feel and how we should be reacting. Too much credit is given to them. I don't know - it just really irritated me somehow. Back on topic.

    I read that the family of the shooter is shocked by his actions. I find this extremely difficult to believe. Something like this, they had to know something was off. No one just wakes up one day and decides to do this.

    seems like with a large number of these instances, the family has a "but he was a good boy and wasn't capable of this" moment

    No religion, no vet, why target a country music concert.

    Reports are that he had been at the hotel for 3 days. He had set up 2 platforms in the room to have a better vantage point to fire down from. Whatever the "reason", it seems he planned this and certainly was not an impulse thing.

    I'm not a gun expert, but I wouldn't be surprised if multiple weapons were used based on the sounds I'm hearing.

    The amount of human suffering here is shocking. I fear the number dead will rise.

    Not to deflect, but that was same BS we heard with Michael Brown in the Ferguson police shooting. But as the old saying goes "denial is not a river in Egypt."

    The reports I have read stated that there were as many as 8 firearms recovered from the scene.

    If you have deep secrets that you don't share with everyone it's not that hard to understand how a family wouldn't know that something like this is possible. In some cases it would be easy to know that something is off as in cases such as one of my wife's family members, and in others you would never know until it was too late.

    I have had personal experience with a close friend of the family being fun and jovial the majority of the time to the outside world right up until he did a murder/suicide involving his kids.
