So if the accounts are accurate, a liberal opened fire on innocent people at a country music concert.

I'm sure this will get spun into a good democrat was targeting a hillbilly neo-nazi gathering. Curious what ties these idiots have with Antifa or other leftist organizations.

Larger than 30rd magazines also. Almost sounds like one of those stupid hand cranked trigger flipper deals, as it speeds up and slows down as you turn it. S/F....Ken M

Unbelievable.......

I was walking across the lobby of the hotel I heard the Today show reporters talking. I looked at my watch and thought it was weird since it was so early.

I was just catching up on what happened in France and Canada when this occurred.

Senseless violence.
A long night and a day ahead for LVPD, Crime scene and medical personnel.

Prayers out to all involved.

Sheriff is saying they are roommates and they found her gaming card in the hotel room he attacked from.

Also reports of a woman yelling at concert goers telling them they will all be dead in 45 minutes. Curious to see if Danley matches that description of that woman.

I picked that up too. Reminded me of a M60 that had a dirty piston or a headspace problem. I'm not saying that was the weapon used.

Guys, lets keep a lid on the party affiliation and shit like that till some solid information comes in.

Good on the cops for getting on this guy quickly. Could have been a lot worse.

Rest In Peace to the fallen, speedy recovery to the injured. Thank you to all the first responders including LE, EMT, fire and rescue and the hospital medical professionals and staff. Also, thank you to all the civilians, who reacted to the tragedy as heroes as the events unfolded.

In a mob like that with fire reigning down, how in the world do you get away from the target zone? I really feel for those victims.

2 of the victims were off duty police officers, not sure if they were killed in the concert area or responding to the shooter.

News talking about 'drum type magazine' based on number of rounds fired in the amount of time the shooting occurred. Fox has a 'former Green Beret commander' talking about how quick magazine changes take 'a lot of training' and curious about his background/ training.

Better start loading up on 30 round mags again- watch the price spike like it did before...

The casualty count could go up since people were doing the 'throw the victim into a car and drive to the hospital' thing.

Prayers out for the fallen and the wounded. God help us all...

Fucking horrific. I think Iíll just turn off the news and social media for 24 hours.

Good on those that took him down quickly.
RIP to the dead.
