Steve Wynn an owner of a Las Vegas casino discusses the shooting and Stephen Paddock.

Wynn also said Stephen Paddock and his girlfriend were well-known to his staff.

“He’s been staying in Las Vegas since ‘06. So you know, we’re talking about 11 years with his girlfriend or at least in recent years, frequent visitor, once or twice a month, to this hotel and others. The most vanilla profile one could possibly imagine. A modest gambler at least by our standards, you know, nothing serious, paid promptly, never owed any money anywhere in Las Vegas. He didn’t fit the profile of a problem or compulsive gambler.”

When asked whether he had a motive regarding Paddock’s murderous rampage, Wynn suggested that his previous behavior suggested the gunman was “a rational man.”

“This is a man who behaved rationally, privately, a little introverted, liked to play video poker. But he was a rational man. And every historical review of his behavior indicates that he was a rational man; so was his girlfriend. And yet he prepared over an extended period of time, a totally irrational act.

“Now, this sounds like someone either totally demented — a behavior which he never evidenced — or someone who’s sending a message. This is a plan. We don’t know what that message is or if there is one, but this behavior, according to my employees, is as stunning, as unexpected as anybody, any of them have ever met.

“When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.” – Hunter S. Thompson. Thompson also wrote a book. “Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas”.

Wynn also said:

We constantly — we don’t allow guns in this building unless they’re being carried by our employees and there’s a lot of them. But if anybody’s got a gun and we find them continually, we eject them from the hotel.”

In other words a person with a gun is at least given one warning.


Latest conspiracy theory –> What really happened in Las Vegas is being covered up so as to not unduly affect tourism.
