Is searching for truth in the wake of a tragic mass shooting “insensitive”?
1. Stephen Paddock Did Not Behave Like a Stereotypical Mass Murderer:
The baffled testimony of Stephen’s brother, Eric Paddock, sums it up:

Stephen was an accountant who made a good deal of money, living in a retirement community in a home worth half a million dollars.
2. Stephen Seemed Obsessed With Gambling–Even on the Night of the Shooting:
As recently as Sunday night, Stephen was gambling using his girlfriend’s casino card.
In fact, he spent so much time around casinos that he’d actually become involved in a lawsuitagainst the Cosmopolitan Casino in 2011 after falling down and hurting himself.
As reported by The Free Thought Project:
“[On the night of the shooting]…He had simply been gambling. While it is possible that he was simply blending in to maintain his cover and wait for the moment to strike, the fact that he used his girlfriend’s slot machine card seems completely out of the ordinary.”
3. Where’s the Surveillance Footage from Inside Mandalay Bay?
Normally, footage or at least an image is released to the media and publicized of a mass shooter prior to his attack.
And yet, at about 3 days out now since the shooting, not a single shred of photographic or video evidence has been released.
Typically, within 24 hours some kind of images are released—at least footage of him entering the hotel lobby.
But still not much more has been released than photos of his bedroom stashed with weapons—images which are certainly red meat for gun control opportunists.
4. No One Witnessed Stephen Bringing Dozens of Weapon + Ammo Into His Room.
Police have confirmed that there were a total of 23 weapons, most of them rifles, confiscated from Stephen’s room.
The amount of luggage required to disguise that many weapons would surely at least capture the attention of some security guard or hotel employee.
Just take a look at this photo showing the confiscated weapons:
“In excess of 10” suitcases were hauled in by Stephen yet housekeepers “saw no signs of anything” suspicious, according to Nevada Rep. Dina Titus.
Yet there have been no reports of such witnesses. Mandalay Bay is a very high-profile hotel, so security is likely extensive there, even on a normal day.
5. The Mystery Woman Who Warned Concertgoers of Death 45 Minutes Before Shooting
A disturbing eyewitness report has surfaced in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting that’s adding a blood-chilling undertone to the tragedy:
“So there was a lady who pushed her way forward into the first row and she started messing with another lady,” says the eyewitness to an on-scene reporter, “She told us we were all going to die tonight—it was about forty-five minutes before the shots were fired.”
