With the lack of any quality reporting covering the gunman attack outside of a Las Vegas casino last night, the information void is unsurprisingly filled with speculation and conspiracy.
Natural News posted this article, titled Five things that just don’t add up about the Las Vegas mass shooting. The only one I find even remotely peculiar is #2.
With that said, I think everyone should go read Trust Me, I'm Lying: Confessions of a Market Manipulator. Bloggers are slaves to money, technology, and deadlines. Publishing content for contents-sake. Don't believe everything you read in blogs.
This Natural News article is reminiscent of the idea that blogs should always be writing SOMETHING.
But here are my thoughts:
#1) Dozens of concert-goers reported the presence of multiple shooters
Everyone reports this following active shooter events. "There were multiple shooters from different angles."
Most of it is because of the panic Adrenaline and inability to cope during these high-stress event can, and most often does create inaccurate reporting.
In this case, all the towers in the area would provide for a LOT of echo, making the victims believe it even more so.
#2) Who warned concert-goers they were “all going to die” a full 45 minutes before the shooting started?
I saw this 21-yr old's interview this morning. If someone actually was saying "you're all going to die", was she arrested? If so, interview her.
More likely, she was just escorted out. I'd be interested to see if they at least called in her license for disorderly conduct.
#3) The weapon you hear on videos was FULL AUTO, which is almost impossible to acquire through legal means
It probably was a fully automatic firearm. Even with admitted surrounding echo, it was too rapid for a bump stock or a trigger rotator. Bump stocks were found in his room, but he would have had to been Lee-Harvey-Oswald-fast to shoot as fast as I saw/heard (no conspiracy pun intended).
These are automatic weapons are illegal. While I don't wish harm on anyone, I'd almost rather he used an RPG. I mean, those are illegal too. Killing people is also illegal.
Quit trying to make things illegal and think you are solving problems. You're not.
#4) Why were the exits blocked, trapping victims like rats in a maze?
The Exit Blocking reports were in Orlando Night Club shooting as well (4:50 into this video)
Until I see a POS admit he locked doors, I'm not buying it. First rule of intelligence or information gathering: Initial Reports are Always Wrong. I'll just assume that reports are either still wrong or panic was too great and the victims were inaccurate.
#5) Why did the shooter have as many as 10 firearms in his room?
No conspiracy or oddity here. Dude was trying to kill people.
ONE MORE QUESTION: Why is ISIS claiming responsibility for the Las Vegas massacre?
Of course ISIS is claiming responsibility. It helps their recruiting, emboldens those in their ranks who believe they are capable.
Also, ANTIFA claimed responsibility too. It's win-win-win to claim responsibility for all of the world's ill wills.
Reports are now suggesting that ANTIFA literature was found in his room as well. Let's not turn this thing into "Russia Hacked the Election!" until we get solid reporting. The Blogosphere will be quick to publish content speculating without any proof. In the end when that happens, we all lose.
The worst conspiracy theory I've heard is that he was likely an MK Ultra patient who was programmed to change the US public narrative from 'People in Catalonia should be free if they want to be free' and focus is on 'Gun Control is necessary'. Come on, people!
Don't believe everything you read online folks. Everything should be viewed through a critical lens. Even libertyLOL...
Thoughts and prayers don't do a thing to comfort anyone right now. If someone wants to help, they should write a damn check.
