The worst shooting in American history. Over 50 killed and over 500 wounded. 

 

 

It's terrifying to watch. Thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families.

Watch at 3:00. The cup on the ground gets shot several times. 

 

No idea what possessed him to do this. He has no criminal records, and his family say he didn't have a lot of religious or political beliefs. I can only guess he just wasn't right in the head.

Shooting from the top of the hotel. He smashed the window open on the 35th floor and opened fire. 

 

The media is saying it's a semi-automatic, but it's clearly full auto. It's illegal to buy those in America, despite our second amendment. In fact, it sounds like a belt fed machine gun, but I'm not sure. 

 

The worst thing about this is he couldn't miss. And there was no way anybody could have seen this coming. As terrible as this is, it could have been a lot worse.

Either he had some beliefs that made him at a certain point commit this crime, he was on drugs, has a severe mental disorder, or was bribed on committing this crime on behalf of another person / people. It could also be a combination of these options.

The things the MSM are saying don't add up. I'll bet there was a lot of political affiliation with what happened. Supposedly his facebook was shut down right before the shooting started, so...I dunno. 

 

What I want to know is how he afforded fully automatic weapons. They're extremely expensive, big, heavy, and not easy to move around by themselves, let alone with as many bullets as he had. The media is trying to say it's a semi-auto, but listen to the shots. It's obviously not semi-auto. 

 

If it was related to politics and he was a member of Antifa (not saying he is) that would have been a perfect target. Most people would have been Republican and/or Trump supporters. And with Antifa threatening civil war:

It's not impossible they had something to do with it.

It's a culture problem. Guns(and violence in general) are waaayy too normalized in the US. It's like a casual accessory and that's really frightening to me.
People are evil in other countries too. People have drug issues, mental issues and abusive childhoods, but the statistics on mostly men who open firearms and shoot people up in armerica is horrendous.
 
I watched that video actually. I don't believe any empty assumption of what made the shooter do this will help anything. We want to make sense of what happened but it's pointless and I will just conclude he was not human. Anyone who is human will not understand this.
 
There was one mass shooting in my country too once, and a survivor then said that when one person can show so much hate, we must show him how much love we can create together. The quote became quite famous and I think this solidarity mindset is important right now.

It's fishy. The guy has no motives and two broken windows in two different room. Not to mention that there have been recordings of muzzle flashes from the 4th floor. Not the 32 floor were his body was. And you have a website that the Islamic State or ISIS claims responsibility for the shooting. Everything does not add up.

I wouldn't overly think about motive until investigations are complete.

 

Thoughts and prayers to those affected from this tragedy.

Still. It speaks volumes about the Democratic party. Something I've noticed in just the YouTube comment section.

 

Conservative video comment sections: "Prayers and thoughts for the victims and their families."

 

Liberal comment sections, "Ban guns! White men are evil! Impeach Trump! Bla, bla, bla."

 

Pretty sad when comment sections on YouTube show the true colors of a political party.
