I will never wrap my brain around why he needed every piece of his arsenal with him. He did not use but barely a 4th of it. It was like he just wanted to show how easy it is to bring that many weapons into a Vegas hotel.

This guy had scouted all sorts of places to do something like this. He tried Lollapolooza in Chicago and other places in Boston. This was years of planning to get the right place and right hotel location.
