    Stephen Paddock bought a Ruger rifle hours before arriving in Vegas. $600 weapon not among those found in hotel room.

    I've been thinking about this trying to figure it out. I discarded the parachute scenario which was my first thought, lol.

    Maybe they found the makings of a disguise in his room? Was else could it be?

    Oh, that's right. Still. No one saw him. I think if he'd snuck out of there he could have gotten away, especially if he made it outside where there was chaos and terror. No one knew to be looking for him.

    Maybe his changing his appearance was intentional - getting sloppier and such - hoping no one would recognize him.

    He changed his mind? It took longer than he expected to get set up and start shooting? He was enjoying himself and lost track of time? He had cameras set up (or other warning systems) and they failed him? Who knows. None of us know what was going on in this monster's head.

    While I don't buy into the trafficking/illegal money aspect, if I was going to, I could see him moving guns up to Canada for some of the biker gangs.

    He was reportedly a very meticulous planner. He used logarithms when he gambled. He was an accountant. He was a stickler for details and did not like to leave much to chance. That was his innate personality.

    He also harbored some anger and was probably an Injustice Collector.

    He had some simmering rage going on for quite awhile. Resentful towards the way his father was treated, 'coincidently' in Las Vegas. Resentful towards the Hotel which won the ongoing lawsuit he brought against them for his injuries.

    So we have an angry, aggressive resentful person, who is a meticulous planner. He finally decided to plan his revenge and did so in a big way.

    He looked sloppy in the video from when he “slipped” in the cosmo and tried to sue them from what I saw and what the cosmos attorney said.

    He had 50 lbs of tannerite and another 1600 rounds of ammo in his car. Seems like he had further plans.

    Hi 8paws. I’m sorry you have dealt with it too. It is so frustrating and takes a toll on ya. I am in awe of him too. I commend him for the great job he’s doing. He must be so overwhelmed and exhausted.

    Sadly, ain't nothing illegal about owning an arsenal.

    What could she have reported? "My partner is exercising his Second Amendment rights"?

    He had things in his car that could wreak more havoc. I think he planned to make it back to his car and continue killing.

    I'm not saying she knew about what he did . But you would think with the amount of guns he had common sense would have told her something was not right . Oh wait Love is Blind
