Mass shooting at the Mandalay Bay Las Vegas; 58 dead, 500+ injured.

Can you all hold off on the it must be this or it must be that talk. You'll know soon enough so what the hell good are you doing?
Because my country has been under attack by homegrown terrorists for years now and uou start to recognize the early signs of a full fledged terrorist attack? Concert venues have been targeted again and again by terrorists.

Why aren’t you calling out those who’re already talking about a columbine style attack? Why just terrorism? People are dead anyway. Terrorism or not what’s the diff?
 
This is truly terrible. Hope they can apprehend the shooters soon. It's amply clear from videos and multiple reports that many are dead and wounded, and it's still an active situation. Opening gunfire somewhere with as many people as the Vegas strip/at a music festival is the fucking nightmare.

CNN just reported (but haven't completely confirmed) that one of the suspects was found dead in a room at Mandalay Bay.
 
For those that have direct knowledge about purchasing or owning guns, how difficult is it to acquire a fully automatic weapon, if that's indeed what these people in this attack are using?

Can't remember the last attack in the US off the top of my head where I remember fully automatic weapons being used unless I'm forgetting one. Jeez this is awful.
Well, they are technically legal, so long as it was manufacturerd before 1986. However because of that, they are quite pricy, on top of being old. I've seen Uzis and Mac 10's go for over 2000, and those are some of cheaper ones. Though if a person has the know how, they can always alter a semi auto to fire full auto, as those ISIS wannabes did in that hospital a few years ago. Not so much necessary to alter a rifle nowawldays with bump fire stocks and quick pull triggers like a tac con trigger, which give a similar result for the price of a hundred bucks.
 
There are gaffers in vegas now? What should be suggested? My gut says go hide in your rooms. My brain says I have no fucking clue what you do here and may suggest something that would get you killed. Stay safe vegas gaf (and all of vegas).
Just put the whole family in one room and locked the door. Not sure what else to do.
 
Wtf is up with the "vegas-gaf" crap?

You need to be a member of the forum to matter? I hope it's just poorly worded posting.

edit: So much triggering. Damn, sweeties.
 
Everyone, please try not to speculate, or to amplify other people's speculation, when an attack is ongoing. Nobody knows quite what is happening at the moment (and that includes whatever first responders you may be listening to on scanners) and this thread is going to be useless as a source of information for people just hearing the news unless what you're posting is official.

I quoted the columbine post right above yours...Are you kidding?

It won't even be 6 hours before we know a thousand times more than we know so why even bother with this?

get into an inner room, lock the door, put furniture in front of it if you can. It's worse to run around because you could get caught in the crossfire from suspects or cops.

if you're close to an active scene then get on the floor too, mostly don't want a stray bullet getting you

There could be people actually reading this thread while in Vegas. What the hell are you even implying? Get a grip.

Breathe. They are saying Vegas-Gaf because those are the people reading this forum.

I was referring to the people actively reading these posts. You're reading too much into it.
 
It's a horrible feeling going to bed and just knowing that you're going to wake up to an even more fucked up depressing world than the one you already live in.

Hoping for as few casualties as possible. Stay safe people.
 
The videos coming out on Twitter are horrifying. There’s so many gunshots and it’s hard to tell where it’s coming from because it’s dark out.
