    Some have wondered how he managed to sneak so many weapons into his hotel room, but it was probably easier than people think. If he was as wealthy and as heavy of a gambler as the media reports then the hotel staff was likely familiar with him and didn't give him a second glance. Given that he had been there for a few days and lived only 80 miles away he would have had plenty of time to sneak a good number of weapons into his room.

    You can be a totally complete stranger to the staff and they wont search your luggage. Its odd to me that people are wondering how he got the weapons up to his room without anyone seeing them. Obviously they were in the suitcases.

    My bad. It wasn't a conspiracy theory.

    It was a conspiracy query.

    Yes, I was wondering about plausible conspiracies involved in this case.


    Conspiracies do exist which is why we have laws against it and the DOJ prosecutes for conspiracy.

    My guess is that at least 59 of those autopsies will conclude that the victims died of lead poisoning.

    Most long guns do not fit into suitcases. You have to have special cases, which are quite evident what they are by their dimensions.

    I doubt every injury was from gunfire. A huge crowd that is in full panic is going to generate a lot of trampling injuries and at least a few deaths on its own. As for getting stuff up to your suite, comped high rollers could carry a B-52 up if they could figure out how to get it there, and nobody is going to say squat to you. Different for 'the little people', of course, but even room service isn't going to say a thing about what they see in a high roller's suite short of piles of dead bodies.

    Ha ha ha ha! You're such a card! Put that in the victim's condolences book. Laughter is the best medicine, huh? I'm sure the surviving family members will appreciate it.

    "Yes, I was wondering about plausible conspiracies involved in this case."

    Come on man, let's be clear. You were thinking of them, and dreaming them up. You were not wondering in abject ignorance,"What such theories exist???? " I wouldn't rip you for the suggestion that he didn't act alone (which would be a conspiracy, meant to be addressed by the conspiracy laws you mentioned).

    But that's one theory, not "many", or the required amount (2+) required to use the plural version, "conspiracies", as you did. What others have you dreamt up?
