Terror in Vas Vegas


20+dead as I type this.

Someone opened fire with an automatic weapon from the 32nd floor of a hotel in Vegas cutting down at least a score of 50 people at a country music festival. 

The gunman has tentatively been identified as being named Paddock, so the authorities are saying that this is probably not terrorism....
That's not how this works.
He just shot up and killed at least 50 people. This was certainly a terroristic act. If he was trying to affect policy in any way, he was a terrorist.
If he was a jihadi he was a terrorist.
If he hated country music and wanted to make an artistic statement regarding that, this was terrorism. 
If he was antifa trying to kill rednecks because "TRUMP!" then this was terrorism. 
If he was a Protestant nutbar trying to cleanse sin city, then this was terrorism. 
If it was a Trump supporter trying to avenge the fact that Las Vegas voted for Hillary, then it was terrorism.
If it was a pro life advocate trying to make a statement about the slaughter of the unborn then he's quite unclear on the whole "pro-life" thing....and its still terrorism. 

However, if, he was trying to shoot up the crowd in the hopes that he'd hit a reptillian and cause them to shapeshift on national television thereby exposing their dire influence on the country music world, then it's just a lone nut.

If he's mad because he broke up with his girlfriend, then she was prescient and it isn't terrorism.

Terrorism does not equal islamism. Bill Ayers, Tim McVeigh, Brett Kimberlin and James Hodgkinson were not islamists, but they sure as hell were terrorists. 

 I've typed this, the death toll has gone up from 20 to more than 50. This is now the worst mass shooting in U.S. History

Good lord, there was just a report of over 200 people shot! Was he using a belt fed weapon? There's a fellow being interviewed now who says that it was definitely a fully automatic weapon. 

***A lot of this info is likely to get revised, the 200 shot could well be injured for instance (they might have been trampled) so it's probably best to just leave it at this for now.

1 Injury count conflates GSWs with trampling, falling, and other injuries suffered from the attempt to escape. It serves the press's purposes to not break them down that way (Local radio broke from the press conference the moment someone asked that question.)
