Mandalay Bay Gun Free Zone, CAIR Supporter — Noted sports handicapper, television producer, political activist and long-time Las Vegas resident Wayne Allyn Root, has interesting questions and observations regarding the Oct. 1 Route 91 Harvest festival shooting.
Mandalay Bay, the hotel-casino from where the killer fired his shots, is a gun-free zone.
Including the security guards.
Root says that when the facility was acquired by MGM Resorts International one of the first acts by CEO Jim Murren was a gun ban for guests and the disarming of most of the security guards.
Root also noted that MGM Resorts lets high-roller clients use the service elevators, a policy not allowed at other Vegas hotels.
Root also notes that if the shooting is called a criminal act rather than a terroristic one, MGM might save millions in insurance payouts.
MGM Resorts is a major contributor to liberal causes including Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). It has partnered with Dubai World and has projects in the Middle East.
Root says that Murren was appointed by Barack Obama to Homeland Security Council albeit we think he means the National Infrastructure Advisory Council which is tasked with advising the president on security of the critical infrastructure sectors and their information systems.
Root also notes that from July through September Murren sold off more than 80 percent of his MGM stock and that there was $200 million in insider selling from officers and directors of MGM in September.
