Las Vegas Shootings
Was reading a few things on the Parkland shootings.

And once again I was struck by how quickly that Vegas story was dropped. Literally I can't think of a single other comparable story that was dropped so quickly.

No theories, nothing. But something is incredibly odd about that thing.

Only similar thing I've seen was the Jeff Gannon story about midwat through Bush II's second term.

Or that Mooney Times child pedo story that ran in on the front page in the 80's and never was heard of again.

Anyway, 50+ Americans died in Vegas. I am very sorry for anyone's loss in the Florida incident. But people died in Vegas too, and it is already down the memory hole.

So if we don't remember who will? Old enough to have seen decades come and go. Ten years from now if I strike up a conversation with an 18 year old, I doubt he would ever have heard of the Vegas shootings.

Whereas most likely he will know the name Jim Jones and the gist of Columbine.

The news cycle is just too vicious with our adhd nation. The Orlando shooting had the whole homosexual persecution angle and that was out of the news even faster than vegas.

re: Las Vegas Shootings
The Vegas shooting is some shady shite. I really want to know what went down there

I think the Saudi king assassination attempt and the guy being a gun runner for Alwaleed is the truth behind it, and why it was squashed so quickly. It's also why bin Salman consolidated power and arrested so many people. I think he and Trump worked together on that move and didn't need the nation up in arms wanting war with Saudi. They took care of those responsible quietly

I don’t have any particular theories but the sheer oddity that surrounds the entire event and the aftermath assures me there is malfeasance involved.

re: Las Vegas Shootings
I think it has more to do with the casino covering up certain details to avoid litigation. They have hundreds of potential lawsuits which could literally bankrupt them. They will do whatever to keep the details under wraps.

We haven't even seen a single video of Paddock even though every casino in Vegas has an HD camera placed every 10 feet. There's more cameras in a casino than at the fricking Pentagon.

Remember when that security guard disappeared and he had private security guarding his house? Yeah that wasn't for his protection, it was to ensure he kept his trap shut.

That's part of it. But MGM isn't powerful enough to stop reporting on the story. It was as if someone flipped a switch off. And the media went away. Poof.

Vegas was 100% a false flag by either the government or a left wing ant-gun group. The media and the government quit reporting on it because whoever carried it out did a terrible job of making it look like a crazed lone gunman so they just wanted it to go away. That really the only explanation.

Everything he allegedly used was retail, off the shelf. A "gun runner" would have had something restricted and full auto. The gun runner theory is stupid.

BS, everything they made you believe is “retail”. This whole story was a coverup.

You cannot fire a “bump stock” from a tripod!

And if the casinos don't hand over that footage in civil litigation, they will be hit with spoliation of evidence and will pay a shite ton of money to the victims and their families.

That leads me to believe they are hiding something else.

I agree we only know what they tell us. And you're just wrong, you can shoot a bump stock off a tripod, I have. Accuracy goes to shite though.

And that's my point, if he was restricted/fully auto he would have walked the tracers in his mag or belt right into the middle of the crowd.

How quickly we’ve forgotten about the Texas church shooting as well. And it happened more recently than Vegas.

A tripod eliminates the recoil, you must have recoil to slide fire a bump stock. If you say you have proof of this then post the video, othwrwise I don’t believe it.

And to your other point if he did indeed shoot full auto and walked his rounds into the crowd then that proves our point that these were illegal weapons anyway.

Dude, a tripod keeps things from going down, not from going back.

Apparently you’ve never fired from a tripod then.

re: Las Vegas Shootings
Agreed that Vegas was a false flag, and probably all of those other ones as well to some degree. IMO MSM reports the narrative that they want us to believe in order to push some agenda (ie: gun control) until it starts to fall apart, which seems to be quicker and quicker these days due to people looking into things for themselves. Once their narrative starts to fall apart they bury it and focus on something else so that the general public will forget. I think people are slowly starting to realize this.

Vegas was ideal for the gun control narrative too. Bump stocks were on the table and Dems could have scored a big symbolic win.

I hope the truth eventually comes out.

Gripod does not equal Tripod. And I’ve already googled this, and I’m very fluent in weapons. I shoot off a tripod at 1k yards regularly.
