Two nights ago (October 1, 2017), Stephen Paddock, a retired accountant, son of armed robber and companion of Marilon Danley, opened fire on a crowd of over 200,000, who were in Las Vegas for (or attending) a country western music festival. Fifty-nine have died thus far, with over 500 wounded, making this the worst mass shooting in US history. Evidently at least one of the 23 weapons Paddock brought to his room had been modified to fire on automatic. The Islamic State has taken credit for the incident, but there is no indication that Paddock had any ties to that organization or was a practitioner of Islam.
