Everything about this case stinks. I can tell you all with 100% certainty that this man did not make a mil a year "gambling." Most likely he was buying guns in the states and selling them across the border. Las Vegas is a major hub for coke and meth import and distribution from south america. It is common in that world to do deals during and around major events in order to blend in with the crowd. l would be willing to bet the weapons he had were just the most recent haul that he had amassed for sale. photos of the room show the weapons laid out as if for sale, not ready to be deployed. A man with firearm experience would not have brought so many. He would have brought a few reliable systems that he was familiar with and much more ammunition. I also find it strange how "matter-of-fact" the authorities are about what happened considering the lack of evidence. Im rambling now but anyone who has exp in that world will know that gambling is a prime way to wash dirty money, another reason why Vegas is part of the drug highway... too many questions here for just a guy that "snapped."

this was because an arms deal went wrong. Not one crazy guy. Who was in town during this? A certain Prince.. Why still no video surveillance? Nothing showing this 1 person hauling all that weaponry on his own. This patsty was a fall guy, for something larger. possible multiple shooters even.
