‘Casino hole’ let Vegas mass murderer get weapons to room, high-roller claims

A high-rolling professional gambler for years warned the FBI that blatant holes in security at casinos worldwide made them soft targets for terrorists wanting to commit mass atrocities.

Shooter Stephen Paddock used multiple assault weapons to kill 59 people and injure more than 500 others, as he sprayed bullets at 40,000 concert-goers across the street from his 32nd floor Las Vegas hotel room.

American gambler R.J. Cipriani, who also goes by the moniker Robin Hood 702, told nine.com.au it was an “abomination” that security was so weak at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

Cipriani said the death toll inflicted by mass murderer Paddock could have easily numbered in the hundreds if he had entered the gaming floor of the Mandalay Bay and unzipped his bag of weapons.
