Mal did it, albiet in absentia....
Hey, Mal's here!
Still no new news.
There you go again, deflecting, pointing the dirty end of the stick, casting asparagus..
Probably a cover story.
I grew up in Dallas. The grandfather of my high school girlfriend was one of the most interesting dudes I've ever talked to and he was in the restaurant biz back in the day. He swore up and down that Jack Ruby owed him $1200 when he pulled that shit and never did pay up. He was still pissed about it.
EDIT: Who the hell knows if it was true or not, but it was a great story.
The point is that CULTURE MATTERS. Swedes and Norwegians and the every-house-owns-an-arsenal Swiss are culturally indisposed to murder one another.
I'm still laughing at "Lieutenant Dan, ice creaaaaaam.."
I think we are all very fortunate that this lunatic couldn't shoot worth a damn!
Hard to believe, but that bump stock probably saved lives.
From that distance and the uncontrollable aiming, I bet rounds landed a 1000 yards beyond the concert venue.
1) You can't have CAKE with out it!
2) We'll use it to keep you distracted when a thread goes south so we can keep fightin'
That guy could possibly be *the* biggest douchebag on the planet Earth.
Looking at the distance/geometry - even a trained operator would have had difficulty keeping rounds in a tight pattern with "automatic" fire. Muzzle rise alone at that distance would have him placing shots many, many yards over target.
With elevation on his side, the angles were much better, however, it's obvious that he did not know how to use that to his advantage.
Morbidity aside, it would be interesting to see the analysis of the round impact pattern - assuming that there will be one performed. I suspect what you'd see is a walking pattern of fire extending out through and past, the target area. And, the greatest number of rounds would be well outside the target area.
Yes - for certain, that bump stock saved lives. But, largely because it was in the hands of an inept shooter. Someone trained and/or experienced would have tripled or, quadrupled the devastation.
It still freaks me out to think about it.
