    I think he had other explosive material in the car too but I'm not certain

    No one has said what was on the note, but why would he leave a note claiming he wants to escape?

    Please don’t turn this into a political debate that gets it shut down.

    I'm thinking it is because it was not a suicide note, they seemed to indicate he wanted to get away with the crime? Not sure. Just sharing theories I've been hearing on TV/radio

    It's actually not meant to be.

    I just heard about bump stock and never heard about it before and saw this.
    I was wondering how it was legal.

    Because it's not illegal? Not sure what you want to hear. It simply allows you to shot a gun faster. The gun itself isn't any faster and still requires a trigger pull with every shot.

    Itís like adding NOS or something to make a car slightly faster.

    It's just hard to believe that something like this has happened. I can not get the Snoop Dog concert I was at for the Las Vegas Marathon back this past November at the same place the shootings took place across from Mandalay Bay. The port a johns where in the gravel lot beside the 2 jet fuel tanks. It really makes you think about life after something like this happens. I believe there was like 15,000 people there and we was packed like cattle at the concert.

    Apparently the note in the room had hand-written calculations about where he needed to aim to kill as many people as possible.

    It seemed to have elevation levels, distance and logarithms to kill as many as he could , as you state.

    They said he tried to buy tracers last month at a Phoenix gun show but couldn't. That would make sense with doing his calculations to see where his bullets were going in the darkness. Though, they would have found him more quickly.

    What would be the reason he couldn't buy tracers at a gun show? Isn't everything there for sale?

    Tracers have been in short supply for years now. Thank goodness in this case.
