Thanks for responding.
What about the second window that was busted out? Do you think that Paddock shot from there at some point?
So with the inside gunfire...what do you think happened?

How about we start "banning" crazy people instead, crazy people who want to use a product like Tannerite (which can be easily made, by the way, with common household ingredients) for nefarious purposes.
Plus, there is no evidence this guy intended to use the stuff during his attack. And, as a matter of fact, he didn't use it during his attack. AND, it (Tannerite) didn't cause any injuries whatsoever during his attack...
Yet...you're ready to jump on the "bannit" wagon.
I think the tannerite was for when Paddock possibly planned to escape in his car.

Las Vegas Shooter Stephen Paddock Tried to Buy Illuminating Tracer Rounds Before Massacre
The gunman responsible for the worst shooting attack in modern U.S. history made attempts to buy ammunition that illuminated after it was fired, a U.S. official briefed on the ongoing investigation told CNN. S
tephen Paddock tried to make the purchase at a gun show in Phoenix weeks before the massacre in Las Vegas. He was not able to do so because the seller of the equipment was out of stock, the official said.
To see if he struck his target/targets?
The bullets, known as tracer ammunition, emit a pyrotechnic charge when fired and leave a trail of illumination. Paddock may have been planning to use the bullets as a guide to where his shots were ending up as he fired into the Vegas night, the official told the broadcaster.
