Scott Thompson: Is anyone surprised what happened in Vegas?
There has been another mass murder shooting in the United States.
Should any of us be surprised?
This time a highly armed man perched 32 floors atop the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas overlooking a concert square opens fire on those below who have nowhere to go.
Like shooting fish in a barrel.
The shooter, who took his own life, does not appear to be connected to any extreme religious or terrorist organization.
Just a white guy who fell off the rails, nothing to see here, says the gun loving state.
Police say Stephen Paddocks hotel room was heavily armed, as was his home.
Questions yet to be answered:
How does one get that kind of firepower?
How does anyone get that kind of firepower into a 32nd story luxury hotel room?
The answer is easy.
Only in America, where you can start your weapon shopping at your local Walmart.
Imagine if he was an organized radical religious terrorist?
