A lot of people on the usual conspiracy sites think the missing part of the utterance is “arms dealer.”

The casinos were used to launder his profits. Some how the people he was selling the guns to twigged on to the plot and did a double cross of which ever agency was behind the deal. Another “Fast and Furious” gone bad.

Well that is one of the stories going around. There is also police scanner audio showing shots fired at as many as five places. The Belagio was one of the places. And there are claims that shooting took place inside the concert.

Why do I buy the “money laundering” bit? No one wins $5 million playing video poker. The odds in favor of the house are too great.

The rest? Plausible. So far.

Eye witness reports are starting to come out. At 6:30 in the below video the witness claims to have heard shooting that came from inside the venue. But he is also not sure.

( About 59 minutes )

He was with two police officer brothers at the concert.

Publicus_Reanimated makes a good point.

Except that you won’t hit anything unless by accident. You can’t do that if you’ve never fired full auto before, real or simulated via bump stock which makes it even harder to aim. From 500+ yards that concert venue looked just a little larger than a postage stamp. There should be bullets hundreds of yards away from the target in all directions if this was an inexperienced shooter.

The Canada Free Press has a post Was Vegas an FBI Sting Gone Bad? that begins like this:

Why is there no motive for the Vegas massacre? Why did Stephen Paddock have a secret life?

It is terrible to contemplate, but the possibility that Stephen Paddock was an undercover federal operative or informant cannot be ruled out. He may have been either set up or used by ISIS and/or a federal agency in a scheme that backfired.

The feds may have thought they were going to catch ISIS in the act of preparing a major terrorist attack. ISIS terrorists may have thought Paddock was one of them but realized at the last minute that it was a set-up.

That is certainly a coherent picture. But is it the right one?
