The first question that came to mind after the Las Vegas massacre was the one thought: Why? That has been the one question that is becoming the hardest to answer. There is no trail, so far, that can connect the shooter, Paddock, to any issue or cause. It would seem that he was as pure as the driven snow, but he paid attention to detail to make himself deadly. Mark Steyn puts forward a theory or guess as to what was the purpose. Read about Mark’s speculations here.
As Written By Tyler Dahnke for the Daily Wire:
On Friday, Las Vegas undersheriff Kevin C. McMahill told the media that the motive underlying Stephen Paddock’s monstrous rampage remains a mystery. It’s truly bizarre that almost a week after the shooting we have no insight into what set Paddock off. Generally speaking, mass murderers kill in order to send a message, or because they’re seriously mentally ill.
Dylann Roof was a racist who killed to strike fear into the hearts of African Americans; Timothy McVeigh considered himself a revolutionary, and lashed out at “tyrannical government” over the Waco siege; Adam Lanza was autistic, obsessive-compulsive, likely schizophrenic, and became obsessed with school shootings.
addock, though clearly morally empty and repulsive, retained enough lucidity to craft his deadly scenario with meticulous precision. He selected a specific floor and room to provide maximum shooting advantage, smuggled guns and ammunition into the hotel undetected, utilized specific modifications on his weapons to increase devastation, and even planted cameras outside the room so that he could see the police coming for him. Mark Steyn pointed out that, in many ways, Paddock’s actions more closely resembled those of a professional hitman than those of his mass-shooting predecessors. The careful planning leaves no doubt that Paddock had a motive.
So if Paddock wasn’t a paranoid schizophrenic facing a complete mental break, what message was he trying to send? We know now that he didn’t leave a note; he didn’t leave revealing internet search histories; he didn’t turn himself over to the police so he could enjoy his infamy. Is it possible that he simply had no motive or message? Perhaps, but alternatively, author Mark Steyn shared a theory on Friday sent to him by a reader who is described as working for a London think-tank. The reader’s theory, which is well worth reading in its entirety, arrives at a motive that checks nearly every……..
