How did Las Vegas shooter amass arsenal of firearms? And totally legal

But what stood out in Sunday's massacre, when Paddock unloaded his guns on a crowd of 22,000 at a country music concert, was the rapid pace of fire. One of the cameras was apparently placed on a food service cart that was just sitting in the hallway. Since he took office, Trump has been accused by his critics of being tone-deaf at times when he's making public appearances, the most recent example being his trip to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico.

But Paddock appeared to be settling in to a quiet life when he bought a home in a Nevada retirement community a few years ago, about an hour's drive from Las Vegas and the casinos he enjoyed. And so, fearing to step onto a slippery slope, they resist what may be reasonable proposals to at least decrease the amount of gun violence in the U.S.

Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack, though presented no evidence of a connection with the 64-year-old retired accountant and property developer. A good tipper, Paddock paid cash and always ordered the same thing - two medium mushroom pizzas with extra cheese.

The non-stop flight arrived as scheduled at about 7:30 p.m. local time on Tuesday (0230 GMT Wednesday) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), according to the airline tracking website and passengers from the flight.

Trump has labeled the Sunday night shooting at an outdoor music festival an "act of pure evil" and declared the nation would unite behind the survivors.

But the power of persuasion doesn't belong to organized groups alone.

12 Killed - Aurora, Colorado (July 20, 2012) - Twelve people were killed and 70 wounded at a movie theater during a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises".

The cameras Paddock set up at the Mandalay Bay hotel were part of his extensive preparations that also included stockpiling nearly two dozen guns before the attack.

Since the Sept. 11 attacks, I've understood that some catastrophe might eventually befall my city.

One theory is that, as the extremists face military defeat on the territory they once held in Iraq and Syria, they are seeking to generate publicity to show they are still a force to their supporters.

"This investigation is not ended with the demise of Mr Paddock", he said. "I went to three different scenes, and by the time I got to the third one, there was just dead bodies". Citing the Nevada Prescription Monitoring Program, the Las Vegas Review-Journal identified Dr. Steven Winkler as the prescribing physician, but he was not made available for comment.

According to reports, he had modified some of his guns to work like automatic weapons, like machine guns, able to shoot many hundreds of rounds a minute with one trigger pull.

Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock appears to have planned out the rampage down to the moment police stormed his suite. "And there's motivating factors associated with terrorism other than a distraught person just intending to cause mass casualties", the police chief said.

The second Amendment was ratified in 1791.

At one point officers believe they are being shot at, saying: "Hey, they're shooting right at us guys".

Photos from inside the hotel room, showing Paddock's body and his arsenal, were also leaked to US media. There will therefore be proposals to tighten prohibitions against fully automatic weapons and to prohibit devices that accelerate the rate-of-fire of semi-automatic weapons.

What has Trump said about the mass shooting?

When they finally answered the door, a SWAT team barged into the room.

Groups like hers that support stronger gun control won a victory last fall when a ballot measure calling for background checks narrowly passed, largely thanks to support of voters in Las Vegas. In 1984, in San Ysidro, California, James Huberty topped Whitman by shooting and killing 21 people at a McDonald's restaurant.
