Two shooters

Mike Cernovich explains why the “lone wolf” explanation for the Orlando shootings doesn’t hold up:

Assuming the shooter had tactical training, he’d be carrying a load bearing vest with 8 fully loaded 30 round magazines, for a total of 9 magazines (one on his weapon). That’s 270 rounds.

Mateen would also have a fully-loaded pistol with an unknown number of magazines. Let’s assume he was using a 9mm handgun, which holds a 15 round magazine, and that he was carrying 4 additional magazines. That’s 75 rounds of 9mm ammo.

In total, Mateen would have had 345 rounds of ammunition.

If you think 345 rounds of ammo is a lot, talk to some soldiers. People are hard to kill.

Also watch this video. You can hear 30 rounds go off in a matter of seconds. Yet somehow the shooter was killing people for 3 hours?

Talk to any soldier. Even at close ranges, that is not much ammo. According to the official story, Mateen averaged 3.45 rounds per casualty. That short of sheer killing power would make him the envy of even trained special operations soldiers.

If Mateen had over 345 rounds of ammo, where was he holding it?

And there is the fact that multiple witnesses have reported at least one additional shooter. Janiel Gonzalez, who was in the club, said, “I’m pretty sure it was more than one person. I heard two guns going at the same time.”

I was dubious about the official story once I heard the final numbers. 50 killed out of 103 wounded is an absurdly high fatality rate, particularly with a high-velocity rifle that shoots rounds that are fairly small in diameter and tend to go through the body. Contrast this with the massacre at the Bataclan theatre, where three attackers armed with grenades and bomb vests killed 89 out of more than 300 wounded.

Now, obviously I have zero reliable information concerning what happened in Orlando. But based on the similarity of the Pulse attack to the Paris attacks, which involved three-man strike teams, I would conclude that there are may have been two gunmen who escaped as Omar Mateen kept the police occupied. Remember that it was reported that Mateen left the club and then came back. Why leave and then go back? Also, given the ethnicity of the club-goers, it wouldn’t have been hard for the other shooters to shed their gear and pose as escaped hostages in the confusion.
