Multiple shooters targeting a concert, car bombs, this has ISIS all over it.

Then again, those reports could be wrong and it's a single disturbed individual raining bullets down on people.

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.

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.

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
