    Just an FYI, if you were considering a machine gun shoot during a trip to Vegas, please don't go to Machine Gun Vegas.

    Apparently, they hate the Second Amendment and just want to profit off of MGs being unobtainable by the common folk:


    Press Alert

    October 2nd, 2017 | 12:00 PM | Las Vegas, Nevada

    On behalf of MGV, we are deeply saddened for the victims and families affected by last night’s activities and absolutely sickened by the behavior of the individual who committed a sheer act of violence on our community. We realize there will be many sensitivities to firearms and their misuse, and we would like to address a few points as a business that offers firearms experiences in a safe, controlled environment in Las Vegas. We believe, as we always have, that there should absolutely be more stringent control on the types of firearms private individuals can own and the processes they must go through in order to own those firearms. There were many factors contributing to this tragic event, but there is no doubt that the shooter’s ability to inflict so many casualties was heavily due to the types of weapons he had access to. MGV agrees that the NRA, Federal Government and individual states have a responsibility to continue to maximize efforts to keep these firearms out of the hands of the wrong people.

    We believe that responsible gun ownership is attainable through the application of common sense, more stringent vetting and background checks, dramatically increased mandatory sentencing for gun offences and increased testing standards for gun owners.

    In light of the recent tragedy, Machine Guns Vegas feels it’s inappropriate to be open today (10/2) and tomorrow (10/3) in respect for the injured, lives lost and families affected by this senseless act. MGV has refunded all customers who have made reservations on 10/2/17 & 10/3/17. MGV’s parent company, The Compound LLC has also made a private donation to Clark County Commission Chair Steve Sisolak’s Las Vegas Victim’s Fund GoFundMe Campaign in an effort to assist those in need.

    A portion of proceeds following our closure today will benefit The Las Vegas operations of United Blood Services, a Blood Systems blood center, which provided blood and blood products to area hospitals treating victims of the Oct. 1 concert shooting. United Blood Services continues to assess the needs and stands ready to support hospitals with ongoing blood product needs. To schedule a blood donation appointment, please visit www.bloodhero.com.


    Go visit Battlefield Vegas instead. They support the Second Amendment and even sent some armored vehicles to the incident scene to assist law enforcement.

    Fuck Machine Gun Vegas!

    Vegas Shooter Wired $100K To Girlfriend Before Rampage

    October 3, 2017

    The week before to his rampage, Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock wired $100,000 to the Philippines — where his live-in girlfriend would be Oct. 1, when he opened fire on a crowded outdoor festival thousands of miles away, it was revealed Monday.

    It is not clear exactly what the money was intended for, NBC reported.

    Paddock’s 62-year-old gal pal, Marilou Danley, traveled to Hong Kong on Sept. 25 and then went on to the Philippines on Oct. 1, possibly to visit family, investigators have said.

    She is a native of the Philippines and an Australian citizen, according to Brisbane’s Courier-Mail, which reported she lived on the Gold Coast for 20 years before coming to America.

    Neighbors said Danley described herself as a gambler. Her LinkedIn page said she worked as a “high-limit hostess” at a Vegas casino. Her slot-machine card, which is used to rack up bonuses and other benefits through play, was found in Paddock’s suite, according to the Nevada Independent.

    She initially was considered a person of interest, but later was cleared when investigators determined Paddock acted as a “lone wolf.”

    Danley was in Tokyo on Monday afternoon. She is expected to return to the US for questioning, the Las Vegas Sheriff’s Department said.

    Well, there we go. Just as it started to get traction a second time...

    In Wake Of Las Vegas Shootings, No Plans To Bring Gun Silencer Bill To House Floor, Ryan Says

    October 3, 2017

    House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) said Tuesday that Republican leaders have no plans to advance a bill that would make it easier for Americans to buy gun silencers.

    The focus on the legislation, which passed a House committee last month, was magnified Monday after the Sunday night shooting in Las Vegas that left at least 59 dead and hundreds injured.

    “That bill is not scheduled now; I don’t know when it’s going to be scheduled,” Ryan said. “Right now we’re focused on passing our budget.”

    The Las Vegas shooting is the latest incident of mass violence to put Republican lawmakers on the defensive over their opposition to new gun restrictions — and, in some cases, their efforts to eliminate existing ones.



    The Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act passed the House Natural Resources Committee on a party-line vote last month. Owning a firearm silencer requires a special license from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, similar to the regulations surrounding machine guns and explosives. The House bill would instead treat silencers, also known as suppressors, like firearms — requiring only a federal background check.

    The legislation also includes provisions that would loosen restrictions on transporting firearms across state lines and prevent certain types of ammunition from being designated as “armor-piercing” and thus subject to tighter federal oversight.

    Opponents of the measure say that the silencer provision, in particular, could make it harder to identify a shooter during an incident such as the one in Las Vegas.

    But Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.), the bill’s sponsor, said in an interview Monday that the silencer provision would have had little bearing on the massacre in Nevada — pointing to media reports that the shooter may have had more than a dozen firearms, some of which may have been illegal.

    “He’s already breaking the law shooting an automatic weapon that wasn’t registered, so what’s going to stop him, had he chosen to shoot a suppressed weapon, to do that?” Duncan said. “The thing is, and the thing he probably realized is, it doesn’t make any difference — it’s still loud.”

    Democrats on Tuesday attacked GOP leaders for rebuffing various attempts to debate policies to combat gun violence. They blamed Ryan for refusing to allow votes on a universal background check bill and blocking requests for hearings on the issue.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) asked Ryan Monday to launch a bipartisan special committee on gun violence, but Democrats said Ryan turned down the request. They also said he rejected a proposal from Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) for a show of unity and action to curb acts of gun violence.

    “We were told in caucus today that the response was, if it has to do with policy, it was a non-starter,” said Rep. Mike Thompson (D-Calif.), chairman of the House Gun Violence Task Force.

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) called attention Tuesday to the Las Vegas gunman’s reported possession of “bump stocks” — a legal accessory that can allow semiautomatic rifles to fire as rapidly as more heavily restricted fully automatic weapons can. Feinstein said she was “looking at how best to proceed with legislation to finally close this loophole.”

    After last year’s nightclub shooting in Orlando, Democrats occupied the House floor for more than 24 hours to draw attention to efforts to expand federal background checks for gun buyers.

    Rep. Linda T. Sánchez (D-Calif.), the vice chairwoman of the House Democratic Caucus, said Tuesday there are no plans for another sit-in or for a petition to force a vote on any of the gun bills Democrats have proposed so far.

    Democrats are planning a rally on the steps of the Capitol Wednesday morning to call attention to Republicans’ inaction on gun control. The event will be led by Lewis, Pelosi and former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who left office in 2012 after she was shot in the head by a gunman who opened fire at a constituent event in her Arizona district.

    At a closed-door meeting of House Republicans on Tuesday, there was talk about what happened Sunday in Las Vegas but, according to several members, little was said about a legislative response.

    “We all discussed the tragedy and certainly all of our thoughts and prayers go out to them, and that was pretty much the total extent of it,” said Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.).

    Collins added that Congress ought to focus on mental health rather than gun restrictions: “We are not going to knee-jerk react to every situation. The Democrats continue to want to say, when a mentally deranged person does what they do, it’s the gun’s fault, not the shooter’s fault . . . People focused on mayhem and the kind of evil this person was — in their heart, you can’t stop them. They will do it one way or the other. You can’t stop a mentally deranged person.”

    Law enforcement officials have not given any indication that the shooter, Stephen Paddock, 64, was ever treated for mental illness or showed any signs of instability.

    Ryan also told reporters that the focus ought to be on mental health rather than gun restrictions. Congress passed an overhaul of mental health laws last year, but that legislation did not include some firearm restrictions that gun-control advocates had pushed for.

    “One of the things we’ve learned from these shootings is that often, underneath this, there is a diagnosis of mental illness,” Ryan said. “ . . . Mental health reform is a critical ingredient to making sure that we can try to prevent some of these things from happening.”

    Rep. Mark Amodei (R-Nev.), who represents the northern part of the state, said it is a “humbling time” for Nevadans but did not mention the need for any specific legislative response.

    “There’s time in the coming weeks to find those answers and do those sorts of things that we need to do and see what lessons are learned,” he said. “But I think right now, it’s just that humility — thoughts and prayers to those folks that were affected, both those that are here and those that are gone.”

    WATCH: Creepy 2011 Video Of Las Vegas Shooter Surfaces

    October 3, 2017

    Casino security footage from 2011 featuring Las Vegas shooter Stephen Craig Paddock has surfaced following his shooting rampage on Sunday that resulted in the deaths of at least 59 people and the injury of over 500 before he turned a gun on himself.

    The video, which contains footage from multiple security cameras, was preserved due to Paddock's ultimately unsuccessful 2012 lawsuit against the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas after he slipped in a puddle of liquid and fell. NBC News obtained the footage and published the following Tuesday:

    VIDEO AT LINK

    Paddock was a "high-roller" who frequented casinos, though, as the video shows, he appears to have maintained a low-profile in dress and demeanor. An attorney for the Cosmopolitan, Marty Kravitz, who met Paddock during his deposition, described him as a "bizarre" man who was "slovenly and careless," but not someone who raised any red flags.

    Though Kravitz said Paddock had enjoyed special high-roller status in at least one of the casinos in the area, he was "unkempt" and seemed out of place. At the time he fell at the Cosmopolitan, Paddock was wearing "crappy flip-flops with a beverage in a bag in his hand," Kravitz told NBC News. "You wonder what a guy like this is doing at the Cosmo," he said.

    Despite Paddock's "bizarre" behavior, said the attorney, he saw "nothing" about him that suggested he was "unstable."

    "This is not a guy that I would have looked at and thought, 'He's going to commit a crime one day,'" he added.

    Paddock's brother, Erick Paddock, told reporters on Monday that his brother was a millionaire and frequent gambler. NBC notes that law enforcement sources and a casino executive have confirmed that Paddock owed "large sums of money at Vegas casinos" at the time of the shooting.

    As for the failed lawsuit, Paddock initially asked for $100,000 — claiming some $32,000 in medical bills and additional "pain and suffering" — but ended up getting nothing. In fact, Paddock still owed $270 in court fees for his unsuccessful suit when he died. The hotel won the lawsuit because Paddock failed to prove that there was in fact any liquid on the floor and some of his testimony contradicted itself.

    On Monday, details about Paddock's life began to emerge. His brother gave several interviews in which he expressed shock that his brother was capable of such an act, suggesting he must have "snapped" but offering no ideas on what might have caused the break. Several reports suggest that mental illness likely played a role in Paddock's actions.

    Psychological problems appear to have been a factor in his father's criminal behavior. According to an FBI report from the late-1960s, Paddock's father, Benjamin Hoskins Paddock, was "diagnosed as being psychopathic." Benjamin Paddock committed a series of bank robberies, often lied about his identity and was charged with racketeering. He was deemed so dangerous that he was on the FBI's most-wanted listed for a few years.



    "Slovenly" could certainly be applied to Mr. Pussy Hat's appearance...

    Had some work to take care of and just getting caught up with new info.

    Apparently FNC has reported that Paddock filmed himself doing the whole thing.

    Also, looks like a note of some sort on the end table under the roll of green automotive painting masking tape.

    Local Sheriff just stated that he believes the guy may have been radicalized. Doesn't state by whom, but I don't think the math is hard to do if that is true.

    Hillary politicized it right away of course, never stopping to think that she was the one we all blame for Benghazi. She's a dumbass in my opinion and proves why she lost the election both times she ran.

    Yep, I heard something about that. Radicalized by the Left or radicalized by Islam. Those are really the only two possibilities I can think of.

    I've been trying to find it in print but supposedly FNC reported that half the weapons were purchased by Paddock and were purchased legally after October of last year.

    All those purchases after the election kind of lends some more credence to the whacky leftist theory...

    From what I gather, the press conference earlier from around 8-830PM ET was... Interesting...

    I didn't see it but what I've gleaned is:


    • Evidence suggests he planned on surviving.
    • "Something" happened in October 2016 that triggered buying weapons.
    • Someone likely helped him at some point.


    Just a reminder, the final Presidential debate was in Las Vegas in October 2016 as well as news about Wikileaks and the FBI investigation being reopened.
