    It's basically impossible to stop a "lone wolf" type scenario (considering availability of guns in the US). As far as I can tell, this guy had no criminal record, was born in the US. So what do you do to stop someone like that?

    Did you really just call him a "rent a cop"? I know I should roll and scroll but you're calling the man who said this to another victim "I'll take a bullet before you do, that's for damn sure" that. Wow, I hope you don't ever need protection.

    I wonder if that's why he was already known to US officials? Maybe confusion in reporting.

    The senior law enforcement source reports that Mateen became a person of interest in 2013 and again in 2014. The Federal Bureau of Investigation at one point opened an investigation on Mateen but subsequently closed the case when it produced nothing that appeared to warrant further investigation.
    “He’s a known quantity,” the source said. “He’s been on the radar before."

    So if they are in a crowd delivering the perfect heart shot or head shot becomes much easier? Or hitting them multiple times to cause lethal exsanguination?

    It becomes MORE difficult because you can't see what you are hitting when firing into a mass of bodies. Shot placement is everything. If it were easy cops wouldn't fire off a dozen rounds at a time when they have to take down a single person.

    (But I get it, people think bullets are magic, I won't keep trying to explain the reality).

    That is just absolutely terrifying.

    Former FBI agent-turned lawyer Stuart Kaplan says the threat is especially alarming, because the people on this list are civilians who don't have the security necessary to protect themselves. "It's going to create some hysteria," he said.

    Kaplan believes civilians from our community are on the list. "I would suspect a head of a hospital or, perhaps, a local community leader. Those are the individuals that may appear on the list--or just a local banker or local school teacher--someone who, for some reason, was in the public eye."

    People can die from multiple gun shot wounds anywhere on the body. Gut shot, arms, legs, neck...all have major arteries. Massive blood loss can lead to a quick death.

    He had "devices." Let them inspect the building now that the bodies have been removed. This is far from over.

    I wonder what warranted the interest and why both times it produced nothing?
