Gotta admit, you are the best right fighter I have come across. Never said there was a recent SCOTUS ruling on the 2nd amendment. Justice Roberts was the swing vote on gay marriage. So not sure what you are referring to political hacks. It always amazes me how little nuggets of information is left. Gorsuch is an extreme right justice and corporate hack. So selective information gathering seems to be your MO. Back to the main discussion, a terrorist killed 58 Americans and waiting for the next mass shooting. Wondering if someone will top those numbers.
Everything I don't agree with is a righty-tighty-whitey.

"Nuggets of information left.."
Deliberately omits that Gorsuch replaced Scalia.. who was he again? Social justice leftist?

Wouldn't change any vote made in the last two decades. Especially on this issue. If you believe otherwise, prove it.

"Selective"

Yes, back to the original discussion. Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes These horribly made arguments aren't getting you anywhere. Even if Americans listened to Canadians (they don't), you'd be helping 2nd amendment supporters far more than hurting.

Fully aware Scalia was never leftist, but wow you are dense. Gorsuch was nominated after the republicans stone walled Obama's nominee. Again, nuggets of information from you. I'm sure Scalia did not want to meet his maker down below. Also, if you are righty-tightey-whitey, then all power to you.

All SCOTUS nominees go through the Senate -- it never even made it to committee so Obama never had a pick. Much akin to the stonewalling of GWB federal court nominees for his entire first term. I don't like it, but the rules are the rules and they've been utilized the same both ways. And again, it would have absolutely no impact on the 3 cases I cited in this thread (i.e. relevant to the discussion) as Gorsuch was not around for them, nor would the imaginary Obama pick have been. So not only do you skirt the historical constitutional rationale provided in each of these cases, but you invent political theories to justify clearly overt tantrums. Overall, not a good day for you. Better luck in the future.

If it makes you feel better....I bow to the king of all information. We try not to post a tantrum in the future. Sorry for offending the true RFD right fighter.

I am predicting the victims of the Vegas shooting will be going after the money that the shooter wired to his gf in the Philippines. If this will happen, I think she should be able to keep what he gave her.

Depends on the intent with the money. It can very well turn out to be collateral for victims in civil cases. And there's lots of victims.. so.. I'd imagine good odds.

He had government jobs for 10 years and good jobs for a few years thereafter, and he put his money into real estate. He had an apartment building that brought in a half million dollars in rent a year for a decade. Then he sold it for $5-6M.

Between real estate investments and gambling winnings he lived a pretty comfortable lifestyle. He declared gambling winnings of $5 million in 2015 alone.

Im guessing he either had a bad luck streak that exhausted his bankroll or maybe was undiagnosed with depression or as a sociopath and realized how empty his life was.

I read that too (NBC) but the real (later) story seems to be that he sold off that apartment building in 2015, but apparently he was already worth $2M before the sale.

LAS VEGAS — Law enforcement authorities on Monday made a significant change to the timeline of the Las Vegas mass shooting, saying the gunman shot a hotel security guard before he opened fire on concert-goers.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo had previously said the guard was shot after gunman Stephen Paddock fired at the country music festival and that the guard's arrival in the hallway of the Mandalay Bay hotel may have caused Paddock to stop firing.

It was not immediately clear why the timeline of the shooting changed a week later and what the impact could be on the investigation.

On Monday, Lombardo said security guard Jesus Campos was in a hallway of the Mandalay Bay hotel responding to a report of an open door when he heard drilling from Stephen Craig Paddock's room.

Paddock, who had installed three cameras to monitor the approach to his suite, opened fire through the door, spraying 200 shots down the hall and wounding the guard, who alerted other security officials, Lombardo said.

A few minutes later, Paddock began raining down bullets for 10 minutes in an attack that killed 58 people — the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, Lombardo said.

Authorities also said Monday that Paddock targeted aviation fuel tanks, stocked his car with explosives and had personal protection gear as part of an escape plan.

Paddock had power tools and was attempting to drill a hole in an adjacent wall, perhaps to mount another camera or to point a rifle through, but he never completed the work, Lombardo said. He also drilled holes and bolted a metal bar to try to prevent the opening of an emergency exit stairwell door near the door of his room.

Lombardo again expressed frustration with the pace of the investigation, but not with the investigators who have yet to pinpoint the motive behind the shooter's decision to fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel casino on a Las Vegas Strip concert crowd of 22,000 on Oct. 1.

"It's because this individual purposely hid his actions leading up to this event, and it is difficult for us to find the answers to those actions," Lombardo said. "We believe he decided to take the lives he did and he had a very purposeful plan that he carried out."

There is still no evidence Paddock was motivated by ideology, or that there was another shooter, he said. Investigators have found 200 incidents of Paddock moving through the city, and at no time was he with anyone else, Lombardo said.

Lombardo said police and FBI agents, including behavioural profilers, still haven't found a particular event in Paddock's life that might have triggered the shooting. The sheriff added that a complete evaluation of Paddock's mental condition was not yet done. Authorities didn't find a note in his room, only a paper with numbers, he said.

Investigators believe the numbers represented calculations for more precise shots, according to a law enforcement official who wasn't authorized to discuss the details of the ongoing investigation publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The sheriff also confirmed investigators are talking with Paddock's brother Eric Paddock, who travelled to Las Vegas, and continue to speak with the shooter's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, to get insight.

Lombardo declined to reveal what they've said, but he stated, "Every piece of information we get is one more piece of the puzzle."

Eric Paddock said he came to Las Vegas to retrieve his brother's body in hopes of sending the cremated ashes to their 89-year-old mother in Orlando.

Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg said Monday he could not discuss the results of an autopsy done on Stephen Paddock, who police said shot himself dead before officers arrived at the Las Vegas Strip hotel suite from which he rained gunfire on a concert crowd below.

Eric Paddock told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he plans to put his brother's assets in a trust that would benefit the shooting victims.

Law enforcement interviews with Paddock's brother Saturday and Sunday were part of an exhaustive search through the 64-year-old's life.

Meanwhile, friends and relatives of the victims and other concert-goers who survived returned Monday to reclaim baby strollers, shoes, phones, backpacks and purses left behind in the panic as they fled.

Good. Hopefully there were significant enough accounts left that can help this monster's victims.
