No, he didn't. The people he shot at had nothing to do with him losing money.

The postal worker going postal is actually a myth. Postal workers are no more or less likely to shoot up their workplace than any other form of employment. It just got a lot of press in the 80's, thus creating the term "going postal".

But still, to elaborate on "going postal", it refers to killing people that one works(worked) with. Mr. Paddock didn't shoot and kill people that he worked with, or gambled with or associated with. He shot and killed people unknown to him. It is no more "going postal" than Mr. Saipov was "going postal".

You're losing the point I am trying to make in expressing what I believe happened.
No, the people he killed had nothing to do with it.. but when someone of his ilk becomes so disturbed and feeling like they have nothing else to lose, they take it out on the environs of which they've come to rely on as their life.
Las Vegas and gambling WAS HIS LIFE.
He lost a lot, so he took a LOT OF LIFE, including his own.

My God, why is that so difficult to comprehend?

No, actually he didn't. He killed people who had nothing to do with his 'job'. If he had shot up inside the casino, your statement would be valid.

One has to add into the mix that he scoped out other venues, he brought and toted a number of guns up to his room, so this wasn't just a spur of the moment action.

I document your obsession with the conservabot conspiracy theory over the course of 3 comments. Your response is to issue a demand I explain someone else's comment.

I note the absence of any attempt to explain the obsession with the conservabot conspiracy.

But now Trump is president, and still I hear this hint of conspiracy or something whenever a right wing talking person on the radio talks about it. Also consrevobots on the internet forums continue to imply there is something there, and when pressed on it just avoid answering. SO tell me Bat and GottaGo, what do you think this guys motivation was?
I think that he thought that you were in the crowd.
I think that he thought that ridding the world of your "conservobot" conspiracy theories by killing you would make Las Vegas a better place.
Is your avatar a picture of a jackass?

Of course it wasn't.

Maybe because your point is fallible.
You said "going postal" as a part of your reasoning. I merely pointed out how that was failed logic based upon the definifition and act of "going postal".
Disagreement does not equal lack of comprehension. Don't try to pretend that it does.
This whole thing stinks worse than rotting flesh.
