Everyone has seen the videos of concert goers being wounded or killed by Stephen Paddock. The whole event was surreal and the aftermath has just begun. 59 people died and 527 were injured in some manner or form in just a few minutes of one-way automatic rifle fire.

Everyone in tune with this tragic 10 minutes is wondering: WHY? What was this guy's motivation to set up an eagle's nest and shoot at people he didn't know, who had done nothing to him, who were just out enjoying the evening music with family and friends.

Unless there's is a writing or something that addresses the killer's perspective or ideology, we will never know.

This criminal has snuffed out 59 lives, and physically wounded hundreds more with his gun fire. Thousands of concert goes have to be in shock and IMO will have mental scars for a very long time. Lives have been altered by this man's killing rampage.

Which is crazy considering how rapid the shots are in the video. I didn't think the trigger bump modifications would deliver that rate. If you look at the photos of the room, there's mags against the wall stacked evenly, guessing not used yet. I have a feeling we're going to find out he didn't even burn through half his supplies.

"automatic rifle fire."

No reference to "automatic weapon" used in my post, CB.

Machine gun fire--one pull, rounds fired until belt or mag ammo out or release of trigger.

Semi-auto fire--individual pull per round fired.

Videos of shooting is not semi-auto fire based on my military experience.

But there was no automatic rifle present.
Cort-that rate of fire was SLOW. No fully auto rifle sounds like that recording.It also explains why the death toll was so low.

After several days of investigation, law enforcement authorities still have no substantial evidence to indicate the shooter's motivation.

Perhaps, his reasoning was purely selfish in that he wanted to become the #1 mass shooter in American history.

Authorities are also speculating that based on the number of weapons and ammo plus video camera equipment found in his hotel room, that he must have had an accomplice. An accomplice is a person who knowingly, voluntarily, and with common intent with the principal offender(s) unifies in the commission of a crime. Is it conceivable that he simply hired a nitwit to take bags to his room who had no clue on what he/she was moving? Maybe. And then again, it's possible that the shooter moved all the things himself. It's really become a maybe this or maybe that situation.

BTW, the number of fatalities seems to be 58, with an uncertain number of people who were wounded and or injured during or escaping from the gun fire. It seems close to 500 or so. All very, very tragic--a horrific nightmare for so many people.
