My granddaughter was there two weeks ago and my son and daughter in law last week. I just can't imagine what some families are going thru. What makes people feel they have to resort to this?

Not sure but more investment in mental health is a good start.

RIP to all those who tragically lost their lives.

People are crazy.

Not sure if the shooter was in the north wing or southeast wing, but I was in an east facing north wing room on the 32nd floor last August, and I remember seeing those stands and stage across the intersection.

RIP

Overview from what I have heard.

Normal guy just snapped. They interviewed his family and friends and they were in disbelief that he would do it.

He had ten rifles and thousands of rounds of ammo . He had been staying in the room since sept. 21st

400 injured and 50 dead.

I was there last week. One of my coworkers daughter was at the concert. He finally got in touch with her early this morning. She is fine, but they had a sleepless night.

BTW, if anybody wants an automatic sear for their AR-15 platform, you can simply google it. There are dozens of sites on line that offer them (for only around $150). A drum magazine is only about $126.

Prayers for the survivors and families of the lost.

Something is really weird with the story, and it keeps getting stranger with every news item:

Had friends out there this week. They're all fine. Scary. They said it wasn't terrorism on a report I read, but it doesn't have to be religious to be terrorism. This was pretty much the definition of terrorism. It's a scary world we live in.

Prayers to the the dead, the injured, their families and the entire city of Las Vegas. I had a fantastic week and weekend and was disconnected for the most part -- I got up to catch up on the news this morning with my coffee and read this. I immediately cried. Just horrendous. Unthinkable. Terrible.

Sad. Prayers up to all involved including the dead, wounded, families, and the city. I'm in Vegas a lot for work. Have been in both those locations. Surreal to see it on the news and all the carnage.

The textbook definition of terrorism technically requires a political aim/gain. So far, we don't have that.

That's really just semantics. I'm sure it was based on some worldview inside his mind.

Further, terrorism typically has a demand associated with it. (also a politcal aim)

It only seems like semantics because people have mis-defined terrorism over time.
