    Tons of people clamoring for this guy to be called a terrorist. I wonder if they will still be calling for that if it is confirmed he converted to Islam?

    I've heard plenty of automatic gunfire, and I think that's just the echo. The sharper, snapping sound is the actual sound of the round being fired. The lower, pulsing sound you hear is the echo.

    I'm certainly not saying a second gun being fired isn't possible, but the best example is at the :11 second mark when he stops firing and you hear nothing. Then again at :27 when he starts again firing in bursts. Each burst is followed a second later by the lower, pulsing sound.

    My guess is during that 16 second lull, he was reloading. Or possibly running to the other window to acquire another target angle.

About 5 minutes before the shooting started, by brother and his friend were heading back to their room while their wives were staying until the end of the concert.
    Glad they're ok.

    I understand why they are doing it.

    Trump's response this morning: "My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting. God bless you!".....should be the standard response from the President of the United States. Instead we've seen him immediately go on the offensive attacking and aggressively pushing his agenda when things like this happen in other countries or when Muslims are responsible for the shooting.

    Very foolish of him to "gloat" in that manner seeing as here in the United States mass shooting have become as American as apple pie. Sure today it may be a Muslim pulling the trigger or driving that truck through a crowd of people, but a few months down the road it will be a Christian American doing the exact same thing.

    When you're in his position as President you just have to be fair to all sides and pick your fights a little more smartly.

    You're probably right. It was hard to tell if it was an echo or a second gun. But, more than likely, just an echo. It does have a different pitch to it.

    I get that, and agree 100%. My point is that the same people that are calling for the terrorist label will change their tune immediately if it is confirmed he converted. IMO, it doesn't fucking matter what religion/race/ideology, this was an act of terror done by a terrorist.
