    Just laying this out there for speculation.
    The Redneck Obliterator! When is a full auto Gatling gun is not a machine gun, and can be had for less than 4 grand, no license, no registration, non traceable, and perfectly legal.
    One would need to set it up, and it would take a lot of space in front of a window, perhaps two of them and two windows, could be used to be more effective. It would explain the change in speed of the rapid firing, and how a bad shooter could keep the rounds together at such a long range also.

      If this was used, then the gun grabbers will have a field day, all semi autos will be on the chopping block. For the simple fact that any semi auto can be configured this way, and many are, with kits available on line. It would be the end of the 2nd Amendment if this is the case.

      A full auto Gatling gun would be a Gatling gun (a semi-auto firearm) with a motor attached rather than a handle which the gunner would turn manually. Attaching a motor to a Gatling gun purchased as a semi-auto weapon is illegal and will get you 20 years.

      Maybe. Depends on how much. Doesn’t really add up, IMO. Sounds like Deep State spin.

      If I was the Vegas LEOs, or honest non-McCabe faction FBI, I’d make sure I got a handle on when and how it got into his car, and how much.

      If it’s just traces of fertilizer off his boots, I would quickly figure out which of the people is trying to frame this to look like right-wing extremists and fire them, or at least get them far away from the case.

      On the other hand, if it’s a lot of NH4NO3, and looking like pure crystalline stuff, I’d try to figure out when and how it got into his car, and if it’s also in the house. If it tells a real story, great. That could be anything from some dabbling with explosives to “where did he put the massive bomb”.

      But if it looks like political reframing by corrupt Obama-era LE – particularly like it was added to the crime scene after the perp left his place, I would immediately open up a secondary investigation into who is trying to spin this thing.

        I am suspicious too. The enemedia has been talking about this non stop with, of course, the wrong information. No more Puerto Rico disaster. They found a new disaster to chew. The damage the media does is paramount. None of them know anything about guns, but they speculate whether is automatic or not and they misinform the public how to convert the gun. They are truly enemies of the Republic. As the socialist/communist that they are, the first thing is gun control again. In South America, for instance, the population is banned from having guns, only the cartel has them. So, what do they use to kill people? Machetes and knives. Do we have to ban those too? I’m surprised it is not Trump’s fault yet. Maybe I have to wait a few more hours for that one.

      Ammonium Nitrate and Fuel Oil, (aka ANFO) is an extremely common explosive. ANFO’s low detonation velocity coeefecient and low pressure rate exponent limit its destructiveness when detonated without containment. However; ANFO functions quite well as an explosive when detonated with containment such as bore holes in rock. Packing ANFO into heavy wall steel pipe for containment to boost the detonation velocity can make it extremely destructive. Becomes even more effective when set up with conical ends to generate a shaped charge effect.

    Repost from below.

    Lots of comments made about thousands of rounds of ammo, couldn’t stage without notice, etc.

    2,000 (not an insane amount, for a gun guy, of which his brother was ignorant or lying) rounds of 5.56 mm, loose packed, could fit in two large shoe boxes. 180 rounds in loaded mags could fit without issue in a large purse or small backpack.

    Other comments made about distance to accurately hit that many people are also misplaced. It would take no great skill to hit a large crowd at an effective distance of 300-400 yards. Typical “accurate” groups are in the range of 3-4 inches at such distances. 5.56 mm combat effective range is 600+ meters, IIRC. Murderer needs only land them in a crowded football field to be lethal.

    Point is that the reported scenario is completely plausible, without extraordinary skill, or any conspiracy. It took planning, which goes to motive, which also remains to be shown by credible evidence.

      Thank you! This is much-needed! No magic, no second shooter on the rooftop, etc., none of that. Everything makes extraordinary sense as a 1-person operation, unless acoustics prove a simultaneous second shooter from the second sniper position in Mandalay Bay.

      The entire thing was infinitely doable by a single person who knew what they were doing.. No magic here. The more I’ve analyzed this, the more I think the guy was simply very, very prepared to do what he did.

          I can see WHY people think it’s two guns, but based on the rhythm, and the interplay of sounds, it is clearly the sound of 1 gun changing and then changing back. It’s not echoes, either, which can be heard clearly in the long taxi-driver video.

          My guess is that the sound change is a reflection phenomenon, although it could be something happening at the source of the sound, like a curtain blowing. But the “second gun” would appear to be the first gun changing sound, and when the “second gun” sound finishes, it turns back into the first.

          I can definitely hear the “bump-fire” stock on this. It’s all making sense now. There is definite bump-fire sound on many of the bursts, so he either managed to keep a single weapon firing, or he had bump-fire on multiple weapons.

          This is nasty stuff, but it’s all coming together. My thinking now is that they knew the whistle had been blown around 9/11, but decided that it could not be definitively linked back to them, so continue to let it all proceed.

          One interesting angle would be if there was a concert around 9/11 that got cancelled, or if there was something in the shooter’s life that changed and prevented a 9/11 attack. I had been predicting a 9/11 event to precede Hillary’s official book launch on 9/12, and now this looks perfect for it. So I think there is some reason it didn’t happen then, and that reset it to this concert.

      Listen to the recording. It was a much shorter time and it was a security officer from the hotel who was hit which alerted them, apart from the next door apartment fellow complaining about the gunfire to the authorities. Initially they thought there was a gunman in the arena, plus a gunman in another hotel, so police were assigned to check that.

      I actually think that those police got there in an amazingly short time but they couldn’t go straight in. They had to clear floors below in case there was a bomb. The lifts had been stopped, they were waiting for special squad and they checked with police on the ground if they had heard any more shots (which they hadn’t).

      I don’t know what you expect…. police to throw their own lives away? Is that what you expect from police? Because I do not. They are not there as punching bags, from what I heard they did their dangerous job in a very professional manner.

      Under that plausible scenario, Paddock was not the suicidal sniper seeking to do maximum damage before killing himself. If he was intelligent enough to plan this spree, he was capable of understanding he could not continue firing without getting caught.

      I get the read that with all the hate being engendered towards Trump and patriots by Hollywood and the MSM, and boosted by all the NFL kneeling, SP fancied he would be a hero for doing the job these mass communicators had been pushing for deaths of American patriots. When he saw that a Country Western concert was being scheduled in his hometown, he went for it. He sent money out to the Philipines for his girlfriend’s escape and safety since she booked the room and is now a collaborator. The money to the middle east is for illegal guns. There’s no evidence that he modified the guns so I’m not going with that scenario.

      Like the rest of the mass killers, he wanted infamy and to be a hero to his leftist crowd. Wasn’t there photo evidence that he attended some lefty protests?

    I am finding out this morning that there were numerous shooting victims from Southern California. One of the deceased was a young woman who graduated from a local high school in Riverside, CA in 2015. So very sad. Another of the deceased was a local businessman — a building contractor. His father is so bereaved he could not speak to the press.

    liveleak has picture of the end of Paddock’s life. I will not post the photo here, due to the fact that not everyone is prepared to see blood/dead bodies etc. Essentially, he bled-out from his mouth/head on a bed.
