In the time we live in, virtually everyone can be somewhat of an “on the street journalist” because they have cell phones with cameras. During Sunday night’s machine gun attack in Las Vegas, several people were armed with their cell phones and cameras and caught the shooting that took place at the Mandalay Bay Hotel, only it doesn’t quite fit the narrative that the media and the police are feeding the American people.
First , we were given the below photo of the 32nd floor window that was broken from which 64-year-old Stephen Paddock allegedly fired hundreds, if not thousands of rounds into a crowd of concert goers.
We were also told that he was doing the shooting by himself, in an alleged “lone wolf” style shooting, which the Islamic State has claimed credit.
We’ve also been told via the media and the police that the shooting originated from the 32nd floor of the hotel and thus it is the reason for the damage to the windows.
However, eyewitness videos capture a completely different narrative.
First, take a look at this video that was captured. Many say this is a strobe light, but upon closer examination, it doesn’t appear there is a strobe on the hotel in this area and the sounds of gunfire quite possibly match the flashes from the shots being taken.
Clearly, these shots are not taken from the 32nd Floor.
However, this is not the only video of the muzzle blasts. An eyewitness was driving near the hotel and captured this little nugget.
Pay attention at about the 25-second mark. You can hear the gunfire and see the flash from the muzzle.
Here’s an even clearer shot.
So far, police have not addressed this, as far as I know. In fact, they continue to maintain that Paddock acted alone, that he had all these guns (upwards of 23, and owned 43, something his brother claimed would be completely unlike him to do), tons of ammunition, and murdered nearly 60 people and injured upwards of 500.
I ask you, are you going to believe your lying eyes or the media that you claim you don’t believe?
Why is the mainstream media covering this footage up?
Why are the police not speaking about this video footage?
This comes as Congress was set to vote on silencers which would have done nothing except melted from use with the type of weapons used in Vegas.
Now, were’ being told Paddock had Antifa literature in his possession, but here’s where it is all going: More calls for gun control, and don’t think it won’t come from one of the places that people will least likely expect it. I’m not going to write it here, but we’ve warned you in the past about certain gun views despite rhetoric that was advanced.
There really is nothing wrong with people having guns, even fully automatic ones or ammunition. The Second Amendment is about as clear on that as anything when it states the right to keep and bear arms “shall not be infringed.”
I’m sure in the Vegas area that night there were lots of people who had lots of guns and bullets, but they all didn’t decide to go on a mass shooting spree, did they? Nope.
More gun laws will simply be more words that criminals, no matter their political persuasion will ignore to do what their evil hearts long to do, murder.
The only hope in those cases is the Gospel of Jesus Christ that changes their hearts. That, or if they decide to engage in such activities, a good guy with a gun.
After viewing the above videos, are you convinced that police and the media are giving you the truth about what really happened? If they aren’t, I have to also ask, can we really believe what they are saying about Mr. Paddock?
I can only present people with information. They have to sort it and determine what they are going to believe.
