Las Vegas Shooting Documentary Raises Big Questions — Just got around to watching Route 91: Uncovering the Coverup produced by Las Vegas political activist Mindy Robinson.
It concerns the Oct. 1, 2017 massacre at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival in Las Vegas in which 58 persons were killed and another 500 wounded.
The official version is that all the death and pain was caused by a deranged Stephen Paddock who used bump-stock equipped rifles to fire “over 1,100 rounds” of .223 (or maybe 5.56) caliber ammunition during an 11 minute rampage from 490 yards away.
Ms. Robinson’s documentary calls into question that narrative. Yes, she is an actress but she has degrees in history and political science, and the production is well done.
It depicts the stonewalling by law enforcement, the numerous deaths caused by head shots, the inefficiency of bump stocks and the many reports of multiple shooters.
We highly recommend watching it.

For what it’s worth, we’ve always thought that hitting nearly half one’s targets from almost 500 yards away with bump-stock equipped rifles was rather remarkable.
You’d think the military would adopt bump-stocks if they are that effective.
