Following the horrific spree shooting in Las Vegas, South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy spoke candidly about his difficulty believing that the attack was carried out by a single person.
Appearing on Fox News on Monday, Gowdy told Martha MacCallum that “its really impossible to fathom a massacre on this scale.”
He also asserted that it is difficult to believe that a single person could carry out such an attack alone and undetected.
“It was an incredible level of premeditation that you don’t normally see, and it is difficult to believe that a single person could have done this without detection,” Gowdy said. He added that “a lot of crime is prevented because a non-law enforcement officer says something” and that he believes that it is likely we will find out that someone along the way thought that something was suspicious.
“I think we’re going to find someone along the way was suspicious they should have turned that suspicion into a phone call to law enforcement. It’s an incredible amount of premeditation to not go detected,” Gowdy added.
ISIS almost immediately claimed credit for the shooting, though the FBI and family of 64-year old shooter Stephen Paddock have claimed that there are no signs he was involved with an international terrorist organization. So far, no clear motive for the attack on the country concert has emerged.
Police found 23 guns in Paddock’s hotel room and ammonium nitrate in his vehicle — a chemical found in fertilizer that was used in the Oklahoma City bombing. Law enforcement also discovered firearms and explosives at his home.
The police announced that a search of his home uncovered “19 additional firearms, some explosives and several thousand rounds of ammo, along with some electronic devices we’re evaluating at this point.” He had no prior criminal record and was not known to police.
As President Donald Trump boarded a helicopter on Tuesday, he described Paddock as “a sick man, a demented man. Lot of problems, I guess, and we’re looking into him very, very seriously.” He declined to refer to the attack as domestic terrorism, likely as the motive is not yet known.

Arizona’s McSally Introduces Resolution to End Senate Salaries Until Stimulus Passes
If the people won’t get paid, neither will their legislators.
Arizona Senator Martha McSally has introduced a Senate resolution that would withhold pay from all U.S. Senators until the chamber passes the eagerly-awaited Coronavirus stimulus, termed as ‘TrumpBux’ by some for the one-time payments of $1,200 to almost all American adults.
Americans have been largely cut off from everyday economic life by the governmental response to an act of God. It’s all too obvious that federal compensation is required.
“If Americans aren’t getting paid, then neither should the Senators failing to support the workers and families who need help making ends meet,” said the freshman Arizona Senator.
“Today, I introduced legislation to have Senators’ pay withheld until relief is passed. It is despicable that millions of Americans are without a paycheck in this time of crisis, while the Senate wastes precious time playing political games. The Senate must pass this relief package now in order to get cash straight to the people.”
Fortunately for Senators that would prefer a path of continued political grandstanding, the planned stimulus may be sent to the President’s desk on Wednesday after negotiations between Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.
The final estimate of the stimulus cost has been gauged at $2 trillion dollars, a sizable package that will be distributed in a combination of TrumpBux and loans to small and big businesses.
There are some similarities between the TrumpBux proposal and universal basic income. The former isn’t ‘universal-‘ individuals who reported more than $75,000 in income on their 2018 tax return will get less money and those who reported more than $100,000’ won’t get anything.
McSally’s proposal ultimately could prove to be the final metaphorical poker stick to the feet of obstructionist Democrats seeking to delay the stimulus package with feckless political gamesmanship.
