Las Vegas attacker Stephen Paddock room found with 42 guns and explosives

Las Vegas [U.S.A.], October 3: Investigators probing the Las Vegas massacre have searched gunman Stephen Paddock 's home and recovered 42 firearms, an assortment of explosives and several thousand rounds of ammunition from his Las Vegas hotel room and his Mesquite home.

It was through his gambling that Paddock reportedly met his girlfriend Marilou Danley, when she was working as a hostess at a casino in Reno, Nevada, several years ago.

"The source suggested that Paddock may have lost his nerve or simply changed his plans and checked into the Mandalay Bay Hotel on September 28", the Daily Beast reports. It was not immediately clear where she was being taken. And what has been a dream-come-true kind of vacation suite for so many, became the site for one of the biggest nightmares Las Vegas has ever seen. "It never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone", she said in the statement read by her attorney.

NBC News reported that Paddock wired $100,000 to the Philippines last week, but NPR has not independently verified that report.

On Oct. 2, a day following the shooting, ISIS claimed to be behind the attack, saying that Paddock had converted to Islam. "I loved him and hoped for a quiet future together with him". "But that won't be to compensate the [58] people's lives". House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said he and Rep. Mark Amodei, a Nevada Republican, also would make the trip. This attack did by the 64-year-old retired accountant who suddenly opened fire on the concert goers fro 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel towards the Music festival. According to authorities, the gunfire continued off and on for about nine to 11 minutes. The police found 10 rifles in the room where the shooter was, but how and when they were delivered, is still unknown.

Ms Danley's sisters did not want to be identified. She's a good person and gentle soul.

Asked about gun laws, the president said "we'll be talking about gun laws as time goes by".
