    Yeah....ok no problem. But it was tough times for the employees that lost their jobs to managerial/investment negligence. To which, I've heard about too often.

    LE said yesterday they had a lot of security video to review. They're probably starting to come across some new information.

    I'm guessing he had other business dealings and associates his gf wasn't aware of.

    I think I will go with the idea that she is a victim who knows that lying to the government is a quick shot to jail or deportation if she is not a citizen. (I am sure her counsel has advised she be truthful as well.)

    His brother also (in his rambling interview) mentioned he would do things like send money or spend money without reservation and generously. I think the guy who knew him indicated the same. In my opinion, his brother is also a victim. I watched the whole interview and thought he needed a good lawyer to help him sort out what to share and what not to share.

    I can't imagine having someone I loved be a monster like this. So I am just going to follow the lead of the government, which seems to be that these are victims as well. As always, JMHO

    Where I live we have the Mental Health Act. The police take you to the hospital for an assessment. As a result you may have all your firearms seized. I don't know the process in Nevada. However if the girlfriend had noticed that his mental health was deteriorating and made a call and the police attended at the very least he would have been on the radar and maybe that would have prevented him from acquiring so many weapons. I am not sure how somebody hoards so many firearms and nobody thinks it's a red flag.

    In days to come, we'll probably see more examples of how he "compartmentalized" his life, hiding things away from family, etc. Probably because he was an authoritarian obsessed with privacy, but also because he was protecting them from knowing about his other activities and business dealings.

    A lot of people own, collect, or deal guns. When does it become a red flag? Who do you call, and what do you say, I know it's legal but my boyfriend owns a lot of guns?

    I think you’re taking my comment far too personally. All of AC is suffering. Bad.

    My comment made no reference to the workers. How many companies have gone down bc of managerial and investment negligence? Many.

    Revel closed in 2014. I was there the last night. It was depressing but IMO all of the employees remaining knew it was coming. AC is a disaster.

    ETA it’s design surely had a huge impact on the issues leading to closing. Have you been there? Those awkward escalators?? The whole place was laid out terribly. Non smoking?? Come on.

    Huh. There was an earlier post about how he was verbally abusive to her. Was that debunked?

    I didn't realize he bought one of his rifles as recently as 9/28, the day he checked into the Mandalay.

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/las-vegas-shooting-stephen-paddock-gun-shop-manager-bump-fire-stocks/

    On CNN in the past hour they had an ex-FBI person on saying there is a database that logs all the inquiries that are done when people buy weapons. So there would be a record of him attempting to buy the 33 guns in the past year. HOWEVER.... law enforcement is not allowed to access this database and look for patterns. He did not mention why they don't have this access, though.

    Also noted was that high-stakes gamblers with lots of cash are normal in Las Vegas, so this guy would not attract any attention due to that. And gun collectors also very common, so buying and owning lots of guns would not raise any suspicions based on that aspect alone.

    Mister Happy!!! Is that true ‘Big Lots’?! That’s hilarious, needed a good chuckle. My initial thoughts were either a custom Liberace style coffin purchased for himself or a jacked up jacuzzi. I’m serious on both.

    (Our room at Palms Place was tastefully done in a nice simple Swedish/mid-mod kinda feeling. Definitely the nicest place my poor self has stayed. Even had a dishwasher ooh la la lol).

    I'm very curious to hear more details in the coming days and weeks.

    Ugh and while tragedies do often bring out the best in people, they also highlight the worst... I should have avoided reading various YouTube and other comments sections.

    I totally thought it was a tacky free-standing Jacuzzi, too, until someone mentioned club chairs shoved together.

    What makes people think she isn't a citizen? She was married to a US citizen for many, many years. More than enough time for her to become a citizen.

    This one hit me hard . I went to the 1st one ever so when I heard the news I could picture in my head what the people were going through as I knew the layout. What is getting me right now is all the BS about more shooters on the 4th floor . Where is the broken window ? Which by the way has all been proven false by snopes . Also this so called woman telling someone what was going to happen. Sounds like and attention grabber to me . Why haven't they spoke to the LVPD and given them a description.
    But my hat is off to the 1st responders the LVPD and to the concert goers who put their lives on the line that horrible night.
