Per press conference on fox, sheriff estimated shots were 500 yards. Doesn’t look like external modification to full auto. Either internal modification or manufactured full auto.
Timed several videos of M16s going thru a 30 round mag and compared to video of shooting. Appears to be 4 times the duration at what sounds like close to the same rate suggesting 120+ rounds of continuous fire. Of course the rate could be off due to sound bouncing off side of buildings.

His brother said he had no political affiliation and no religious affiliation. Wouldn't someone who didn't know who God really is, be an easy convert? And what country is his girlfriend in?

I believe the sheriff said she was in Japan during the news conference.

His brother said he was a multimillionaire former accountant, turned real estate investor. Like to gamble was a high roller at the casino. So the room could have been comped.

What if he was abducted by persons unknown, because he had the room they needed.

They set up the cameras so they knew exactly when to fake his suicide. Afterwards went into adjoining room and slipped out in first responders uniforms.

This took a lot of planning, a lot of time. This wasn't luck. Some of this guys friends would have noticed some change in him. Snapping to do this does not account for all the time and preparation.

I have my doubts.
He had weapons at other locations, was a loner for the most part, angry personality (according to reports).
Placing large gambling bets tells me he was looking for excitement.

I am thinking he was mentally ill and did this because he could or he was just bored with his life. Had money, houses, planes, but had an empty heart, a hole he could not fill with worldly things. Evil controlled him.
I am very sad for the victims and families, prayers for them.

What if outer space aliens abducted him and surgically implanted bug in his brain so they controlled his mind, and then returned him to earth and caused him to commit the shooting? Obviously then the shooting will cause the government to disarm us. Once we're totally disarmed, we'll be powerless to oppose the coming invasion of little green men!!!!11eleven

I don't have any more proof for my theory than you do for yours, but mine's sexier, so I think mine wins.

The guns found included converted, fully automatic AR-15 style assault rifles with high capacity magazines.

Not sure what "converted" means but an interview I saw made it sound like it was a true fully automatic conversion and not a bump-fire. Then again the talking heads may not have known what they were talking about. Caveat lector.
According to this they found bump fire stocks.
A modified bump stock rifle was also found, which allows a gun to simulate rapid automatic gunfire. Law enforcement officials are still in the process of examining firearms to determine if they were capable of firing automatically.
