Can't believe stuff like this is still happening. They found a bunch of guns in the guys hotel room too. I can't believe he even got into the hotel with all this stuff.

In a city like Vegas that is pretty much a trap for people prone to vices of all kinds is it really that surprising that someone flew off the handle? How many lives have been ruined in that city?

Obviously the gunner is responsible for his actions and they certainly are not excusable in any case, but yeah. The location doesn't surprise me at all.

I've never had a hotel check my bags. Apparently he was a Nevada resident, so he didnt even have to bring them over a state line or anything. Someone also pointed out a loophole in Nevada's laws having to do with automatic weapons obtained before 1986 ( i might have misremembered this already). Would love to know the reasoning behind that stipulation since an automatic weapon is an automatic weapon regardless of when it was obtained.

Clearly they need a law change then. Dumb old laws.

Burn his body, toss the ashes in the dump. Take everything the guy owns to help the victims. If he did not kill himself, I would suggest a slow painful death.

Why can't these people just kill themselves without killing others first. Need to stop saying a mental illness caused it, that is just an excuse for not knowing why and makes it harder to find out why he did it.

Also his name should be as used as little as necessary, and once the case is over, his name never used. Let people know your name will be forgotten if you do this type of thing.

What a horrific thing to happen. They were like fish in a barrel out there. My thoughts are with those in Vegas. I hope the community there can come together to get over this. This guy was not in his right mind to do something like this. I wonder if he suffered any mental illness

ISIS claimed the attack, saying he converted months ago

Doubt they'll blame him for the attack itself, though they'll likely pick at or make fun of his response, as UncleTim and Qwueri discussed in The Daily Donald.

edit: Isis likes to claim responsibility for everything they can, so that doesn't necessarily mean anything. Most likely the guy was mentally ill, and may or may not have converted more-or-less on his own in consequence. I think the term for it is self-radicalization?

I have to say I find that highly unlikely.

Perhaps it is harder to think a completely mentally stable person did it, and that addressing the root cause could prevent further tragedies at the very least.

For some, this seems like the most likely solution, followed by ideological roots (Such as Islamic extremist, anti-government), among others. The irony of your suggestion of burning his body, to me at least, seems to be that there couldn't be a physiological factor to his actions. If we burnt his body, we would never that as a factor.

Perhaps it is more healthy to think of it as a series of factors, possibly. Not sure. I hope I do not offend you.

I honestly find it a great deal more logical (And a bit agreeable) than turning it into a gun law debate, though I acknowledge that has some merit, depending on the situation.

If the coward had not killed himself, this is a clear case of domestic terrorism warrant the death penalty.

How? He was a muslim convert who was known to police. Just like Omar Mateen, just like the Manchester bomber, just like the Westminster car attacker, just like the Bataclan attackers and so on.
Also news broke that he was a convert hours before ISIS claimed it

It appears you have taken a few things out of context.
Stephen Paddock had filed a lawsuit against the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Hotel & Resort in 2012 due to a fall.
He lost the case against them.
He was not directly known by the police as he barely had any engagement with them, legally or otherwise.

When making such claims, I would advise you to post sources that you formulated these claims from so that there's a clearer picture being painted.
There is far too much tension on Crunchyroll forums regarding politics that people will make it about religion, politics, or otherwise without additional context being added.
Without context, assumptions will be made and you end up having people directly doubting your statements.
