Had child porn on his computer.
Interesting how they know and have focused on this.
Maybe they put it there. It's the only way to be sure.
My point wasn't related to the child porn. I quoted the post to make sure the link to the report from which I pulled the quotes, which you deleted in your post, was included in my post.

My comment was in reference to how they, the government and investigators, know which guns he purchased and when they were purchased since there isn't supposed to be a registry or list maintained. The only way it to track them down one by one using the serial numbers and tracing them from the manufatcturer through the retailer. Seems that would be very time consuming and when they were purchased does not seem all that important to me.

I'm more interested in knowing why he did it and who else, if anyone, was involved.

The fox news link is quoted in my post but whatever. At this point, I'm no longer convinced he did it.

Regardless what you are convinced of, you modified my post to make it appear I was referring to something I wasn't.

The investigators have access now to all his records and accounts. Unless he paid all cash and destroyed all receipts they'd only have to check his files. Heck, I made it real easy for them. Not only do I have everything in one folder labeled firearms, I've got a log book in my range bag.

So little information going to Huffington Post for this one.

Guy sold him the tracer ammunition. Box with his name and address on it found in the room.

I guess that little side hobby of being a gun dealer has its risks.

New stories about the shooter(s) and the 'investigation'

https://truepundit.com/key-forensic-evi ... ried-dead/

https://gellerreport.com/2018/03/fbi-la ... m=facebook

Stephen Paddock did not start buying weapons until after Trump was elected?
Second shooter?
$100,000 wired to the Philippines?
The FBI still has never been provided all the camera footage from the Mandalay Bay?

I had to remind myself that conspiracies are still circulating about the Kennedy assassinations. There is a lot of money at risk for Mandalay Bay lawsuits, that could be the reason that this shooting doesn't have answers like the ones that happened more recently.

About Bump Stocks - Thanks to his alleged use of a bump stock, a lot fewer people were killed than might have been otherwise. I'm seeing some reports that suggest as many rounds landed in the dirt as found a target. With no little experience in auto fire myself, I can assure you had he been using the same rifle in a controlled fire rate (assuming he could actually draw a site picture), the horror would have been a lot worse.

Did the shooter(s) use bump stocks? No one outside of the FBI and Las Vegas police know for sure because of the stranglehold on information about the incident.

That's because there are no security cameras in Las Vegas.
God, grant me serenity to accept the things I can't change
Courage to change the things I can
And the firepower to make a difference.

Or the Saudi's weren't involved in the Austin bombings.
