to get your thoughts on this sort of motive today. >> a day america is not going to forget for a very, very long time. the security in venues and people coming together. particularly vegas. maria: we will have more on that. learning more disciplined disciplined about the gunman behind the deadliest mass shooting in american history. 64 euros retired accountant stephen paddock open fire and concertgoers to the second floor of the mandalay bay casino sunday night. he killed at least 59 people, wounded 520 others before killing himself. authorities say stephen paddock said 23 firearms. some with scopes, though las vegas sheriff joe lombardo spotted nothing nefarious. >> this was an integral -- individual described as a lone wolf. he was an avid and that he had
stuff in his room. >> 23 weapons. i miss him in mesquite, nevada, 3519 additional bombs that thousands of rounds of ammunition. jeff flock on the ground in las vegas. he has the very latest. jeff, good morning to you. >> good morning to you, maria. it is extraordinary to know so much and learned so much about stephen paddock over the last 24 or 36 hours or so when no clue as to why he carried this act out. as you report from a 64 years old, looks like a fairly normal retiree. fairly successful at it apparently. also successful with business investment, lived in a retirement community there. no one saw anything amiss. even talking to family members, specifically his brothers. one of his brother said when he learned his brother had been
responsible for this, it was like an asteroid falling from the sky. >> no religious investigation, no political affiliation. he just hung out. we are shocked, horrified, completely dumbfounded. reporter: so many of the match against an experienced do have sense or whether they political piece to them. it's his brother indicates, maybe there will be other interviews. at this point there is nothing like that. and while it's not the sort of snapped and did this about todd because clearly this took tremendous premeditation and preparation. there is nothing to indicate what would've gone wrong. a man who had absolutely no criminal record, no aggressions with the law. it is a puzzle trying to put together in las vegas.
>> incredible job. joining us right now is former homeland security special agent in charge. former fbi member john torres. thank you for joining us. you just heard that the killer's brother, unknown in terms of what the motive is. woody things happening here? what drives a 64-year-old retiree, no real criminal history, no known affiliations to terrorist groups to kill 59 people. >> on the outside year, it is truly bizarre. to take a look at someone who would do this kind of carnage and kill so many people, usually as he received earlier there's a number of different reasons they would do some thing like this. the motivated religious motivations or they pledge some sort of group in this case i can assure you von forstmann is going to be really looking with
a microscope and taking a look at what could really have triggered this type of attack. >> john, they talk a lot about how could this guy brought his weapons into the room. we know that there was a gun show in vegas and really becomes a question of what to von forstmann have done ahead of time to prevent this from happening. how real-time is social media information or police or law enforcement, how real is that in terms of preventing something like this from happening? >> is becoming much more critical in today's law enforcement. especially recently been able to monitor social media, especially in the big event going on. in this instance, this person is not in social media and not
communicating with people and truly is a lone wolf, becomes difficult. it is a tool on for sunnis to take advantage of. dagen: at it they can make towel. based on reports when shots buy votes using target practice also found more ammunition and ammonium nitrate, fertilizer used to make explosives found in the murderous car. can you read into that at all? does that tell us anything? this profile so far doesn't add up. >> it doesn't add up, but when you take a look at all the items in his possession, it's obvious it's credible. the most important -- what are the warning signs, went to his
friends and associates know telling his girlfriend who is currently overseas, when did she leave to go overseas or without a trigger that would cause them to do something like this. maria: trying to figure out why he carried out this massacre, what will give him the most clues that they were looking for as well and what do we know about his companion in japan right now? >> starting with love on for snowball lookout verse, they will do a complete review, forensic review of all the electronic phones and computers. they were forensically look at vehicles, search warrant of all the possessions of residences, properties he owns, travel records. they will look at everything inside out and upside down.
as for the girlfriend, obviously living with them, talking to them, will know what the personality was like, what were his triggers that would make him mad. i can assure you they will want to talk as quickly as possible if not doing that already. >> this is jon hilsenrath from "the wall street journal." what can you tell us about the way the individual chose to take out his attacks were taken at a hotel room, sneaking on the weapons into the room is scoping out this venue. how does law enforcement need to respond to an attack like that in the past people tended to use explosives. this guy took a totally different approach to doing this. >> it's an incredible amount to premeditation and obviously planning to rent a hotel room with a clear view, un- abstract it to the venue to be able to disassemble and/or hide that amount of weapons to bring into the hotel without being noticed.
also, to have a few of this venue for three days of the festival is ongoing. what that tells law enforcement is they have to take a look at changing them using the best practices, especially with the secret service uses for national security special event. obviously, that type of security is very expensive but you can take some of the best practices, especially coordinating with the business community, sending out red flags similar to a few of the person that comes in and have a view of the venue like this and not the type of person that wants to have someone come in, especially the cleaning crew appeared cleaning crew. or something like that is happening, you certainly want to put the notification out there to law enforcement so you can actually make the interview the person or take a closer look.

board put in industrial giant. tommy what you think of this move. this is significant. >> this transition has been going on for a few months. i don't think it fundamentally changes the direction of ge's. it marks the moment to talk about what she tells us about the u.s. economy. he took that position two days after 9/11 at the tail end of the recession. ge is a window into the u.s. economy. what is era marked a low point for the u.s. economy. he started as we were going into it. a slow economic growth and that showed up. maria: i don't think you can join in on the economy. ge has gone through fundamental change, major assets to change the makeup of the company. i was on jeff and notes.
>> sure. maria: stocks down 25%. >> which underperformed the broad market. >> yes i had to transition away from ge financial. they think you put that in part because they really built the ge financial. he allowed that to continue. >> he has the revenue. though it's half the revenue. >> got caught and taken out the financial crisis. >> but again, he ran ge, immelt date from 2,122,008. god is -- that was a disaster developing over that. >> under jack welch, it was under all-time highs. the revenue was incredibly strong levels. >> there was a period when the u.s. economy.
he got out of the right time. he gets credit for really running the company brilliantly. he got out right at the right time. >> can i raise an issue because we viewed ge and its heyday in the 90s as it was a benchmark of the u.s. economy because it was so diverse. was immelt not capable of running a company so diverse? was that only chuck welch is chuck welch's talent who could run it, that he was capable of getting his arms around it and being able to see disparate businesses for what they were and how to grow them. >> it has to be which you pointed out, that he didn't see the problems in ge financial. that became a disaster for him and he is seven years to figure out overexposed to the financial sector. >> you can say was that someone of a plot box for people didn't understand what ge capital was. how did he not figure it out?
being forced to sell it so many years later. i was a big move in a completely change the make up. >> this company was a reflection of the u.s. economy. the whole u.s. economy became too exposed to the financial sector and it took down the whole economy and ended up being a black mark. maria: you wonder what happens to the stock now. >> it's below 30. that's for sure. but check ge shares. pull up a chart when you get a chance there. >> what is immelt doing now? are they going to pay that? will they get more assets and try to acquire different things? will they take the different assets and focus their business? maria: the higher ge's stock which is owned at this time by
ge was 59 and three quarters. i was under jack welch. so what does he do now? he was actually being looked at us perhaps going to uber until he says no, he's no longer in the running. >> he doesn't have to do anything. dagen: but now it is wind turbines and jet engines in health care. >> so diverse. good thing or bad thing? you could potentially question the exposure to emerging markets and the rest of the world. really shifted the focus of the company to emerging markets. they had a heyday, but as we know what china and how it slowed down, that might not have been a rate. maria: indicative of the broader economy. we'll keep talking about that on hand coming out. we're headed to las vegas this morning with the latest on the massacre that claimed the lives of 59 people in a shaken the
country. as the country comes to grips with this horror, americans are mourning from the white house to monday night football. we will bring it all back in a moment. i'm a concrete mason. i own my own company. i had some severe fatigue, some funny rashes. finally, listening to my wife, went to a doctor. and i became diagnosed with hodgkin's lymphoma... that diagnosis was tough. i had to put my trust in somebody. when i first met steve, we recommended chemotherapy, and then we did high dose therapy and then autologous stem cell transplant. unfortunately, he went on to have progressive disease. i thought that he would be a good candidate for immune therapy. it's an intravenous medicine that can affect the patient's immune system and unleash it against the cancer. with chemotherapy, i felt rough, fatigue, nauseous.
motive, what drove stephen paddock to rain bullets on an unsuspecting crowd of thousands. >> we will not be tarnished by this one sick, horrible human being that he thought he could destroy who and what we are. that will never happen. jolene: community rallied, lined up for hours to donate blood yesterday. money poured into the donation fund. global markets are firm despite the tragedy. markets did not react to anything yesterday. futures looking to extend the gains this morning, dow industrials up 25 points, 28 points, nasdaq up 31/2. markets are mixed, germany closed for a holiday comedy is in the upper fraction as is the cac quarante in paris. the nikkei and hang saying in the green, hong kong markets up
better than to present the japanese market up 1%, shanghai and korea closed for the holiday, donald trump headed to hurricane ravaged puerto rico and more companies including amazon sending aid and supplies to the island as we speak, advertising fallout for facebook detailing how many americans saw divisive russian linked ads during the election. what the social media giant is doing. as iphone 8 plays with problems. what you need to know about the battery woes. tesla under pressure, stock sliding as a reveals model preproduction much slower than expected. this top story, the deadliest mass shooting in us history, authorities learning more about the suspected gunman, stephen paddock, who opened fire in a crowd of 200,000 concertgoers monday night in las vegas. the tragedy leaving 69 people dead, 527 wounded.
adam housley is live at the scene of the shooting. >> reporter: we are across the parking lot from the shooting that took place 30 hours ago. we saw an ambulance leave 15 minutes ago. generally that means they are taking a body with them as they leave the area. the investigation ongoing. we are getting an exclusive look at the perspective the shooter took, the open unobstructed view he had. we have a couple maps to show you, the first is the layout here in the southern part of this strip. the concert took place, the 3-day festival, the second map shows the perspective, the redline gives you an idea where the windows relocated to the unsuspecting thousands, 22,000 below. to give you a more lively look, the actual video taken by a
viewer here one year ago where the same festival the day before the last day, walked into his hotel room with the camera on his phone to show how neat that two room suite was. anyone who stayed would say the same thing, beautiful view. what it provided the shooter with a wide open, two different angle view of the concert below. you can see that, shows you where the shooter was located from last thursday until the shooting took place late sunday night. back here live a chance to hear from more people that lost their lives, people who survived, and one witness talked to us about what she went through, take a listen. >> she was cut in the back of
the head, just ridiculous, i can understand one person had done something but this person went out and killed so many people that he didn't know. >> reporter: you can hear the emotion, people around town yesterday, biker jacket because it is cold in the mornings, the guy asked me why i was here, do you come here a lot? we are here for the shooting, he turned around with tears in his eyes, i was there and the person next to me got shot, we just ran, two hotel down, my mom picked us up, you hear that one after another. we got here so early yesterday, and in turn called me and said what do i do? there was a shooting, we are hiding in a hotel. i talked to her and her mother, this morning they still haven't slept in all these hours. they tripped over a body.
these are the stories we are hearing, the killing will begin here but it will be a long time coming. jolene: hard to take, thank you. joining us now is former u.s. army officer, thank you. your thoughts today? >> what he amplified his this is a soft target. this was not a soft target. you had a semblance of people at this concert so you had major police presence, armed officers at this location, what you had with a sense of vulnerability because you had the shooter at the high vantage point was able to shoot and kill numerous people so it wasn't a soft target. we want to look at how to
fortify ourselves or protect people in these large gatherings. jolene: people are afraid to gather with lots of people. can we do that? >> there is a strategy we could employ and once the drones. when we look at the nuances of policing, technical innovations are taking precedent in policing, and that should be used as a viable commodity in giving an overview what is happening in these locations. that is one step. we have to consider these things have happened before. when we look at the charles whitney shooting august 1, 1966, when he was in the clocktower or university of texas grounds, we had similarities. when we look at the vantage point the shooter had in dallas where he shot several police officers we want to take that
amalgamation of circumstances and use that for law enforcement to create a more credible pathway to fortifying the public. >> a lot of people looking at the secret service playbook in order to protect the mass gathering. also the establishment where they have counter sniper capabilities. one of the things from this situation is to obstruct lines of site so the question, would there be a way to shield this? the other question is could you have a coordinated position so that if you could pick up using infrared or other technologies to pick up a flash that you engage? >> i agree with you but i am a prior army officer. snipers were in high demand. we don't have resources to
support sniper teams for every public assembly so we have to think in consideration of drones, drones are the cheapest resource we can use in these situations. i am a firm proponent of having snipers everywhere. we look at new york city, times square, the nypd deploys a sniper team in times square. that costs money and a tremendous amount of training goes into being a sniper and we don't have those resources. jolene: what would drones be doing? >> they would relay intelligence to another team's they could respond to a possible threat. jolene: if they saw him blowing out the window in 30 seconds -- the biggest shooting is rekindling the debate over the nation's gun laws, cbs fired a
legal executive, their senior lawyer, for a facebook post she did. she said i am not sympathetic because country music fans often are republican gun toter is. the network all the message deeply unacceptable, fired her immediately. hillary clinton entered the fray, tweeting just hours after the shooting the crowd fled at the sound of gunshots which imagine if the shooter had a silencer which the nra wants to make it easier to get. our grief isn't enough. we must put politics aside, stand up to the nra and work together to stop this from happening again. las vegas native jimmy kimmel also outspoken on his program last night. >> donald trump is visiting las vegas on wednesday. he spoke this morning praying for those who lost their lives. in february he signed a bill that made it easier for people with severe mental illness to buy guns illegally. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell, speaker of the house paul ryan and a number of other lawmakers who won't do anything about it because the nra has their balls and a money clip,
send their thoughts and prayers today which is good, they should be praying for god to forgive them for letting the gun lobby run this country. jolene: your thoughts on that. >> i completely discount the cbs administrator, she's not worth the conversation. jolene: ridiculous horrible comment. but i have to stop you, it opens a window into how some individuals. we are thankful this one couldn't shut up because now she is out of a job but to say that rather than keeping your heart and mind on the people who lost their lives or been injured in that shooting, i showed a complete vacuum of morality. and there are a lot of people like that in this country. >> a lot of people on the left feel that way but going back
with the gun rights, i am a strong proponent of the second amendment. when we look at places like chicago, chicago has the toughest gun laws in the country. look at the propensity for violence in chicago. a week ago we had the church shooting in tennessee, the person that stopped this shooter from killing more people was a licensed gun owner. we need guns to protect ourselves, good people in the hands of guns to protect ourselves from bad people in handguns. >> what is missing from this debate is automatic weapons are illegal. >> they are not illegal. you need a specific license. arthel: they have been -- any machine-gun or automatic weapon manufactured after 1986, the only ones technically legal in this country were manufactured before that date and you have to be registered with federal authorities. >> if we know anything about how he got his hands on this weapon
-- >> they are tracking that now. i saw one of the owners of the gun shops, he said this was someone who wasn't on the radar. i have a strong investigative background, this is not the person i would have looked at. tips come in, a massive amount of resources investigate these tips and this is not someone at the apex of the radar. this is someone with a propensity -- arthel: quickly on the guns there were two tripods allegedly found in the room the guns were positioned on and also according to the wall street journal a bus stop that turned potentially a semi automatic weapon into an automatic weapon. jolene: he must have adjusted something turning a semi automatic weapon into a full automatic weapon. arthel: that is something you can easily by. >> the state of nevada is an
open carry state. people can carry weapons on a strip of las vegas, gun shows quite frequently in las vegas. in no way, shape or form are they strangers to gun orders in las vegas but the truth of the matter is this was more an aberration than the norm. how do we ramp up fortifications or threat assessment as law enforcement to prevent these things happening in the future? is an arduous task. jolene: chicago has the strictest gun laws in the country. >> chicago, new york city and los angeles. >> 534 homicides year to date, 534. >> you have bad guys in possession of guns was the good guys will have guns. look at the police department, how does the police department counter bad people? with guns, the secret service protect the president with guns,
jolene: take a look, down industrial's expected to be up 30 points, nasdaq, s&p 500 in the plus column, couple names, could it be more trouble for apple at new iphone, company investigating several reports the batteries in the iphone 8 are swelling. the problem causes the screen display panel to dislodge. and apple spokesperson saying they are looking it the issue. we are up a fraction and watching walmart today, the retailer making a booth in its bid to take on amazon acquiring new york state delivery startup, terms are not disclosed the rico saying walmart paid less than $10 million, shares of walmart
up 13% year-to-date, donald trump headed to puerto rico to see the devastation from hurricane maria firsthand. dagen: the president and first lady leaving in a few hours, he spoke about his plan while there. >> we will be seeing all the first responders, the military, fema, most importantly we will be seeing the people of puerto rico. we have -- amazing what has been done in a short time. >> the visit comes two weeks after maria ripped through puerto rico leaving people scrambling for power, water, medicine and food, things are not much better now. the administration has come under fire for not moving quickly enough to help puerto rico recover from the worst hurricane to hit the island in 90 years, the president accused san juan mayor of poor leadership, after she criticized
the federal response. amazon, a cargo plane into puerto rico loaded with donations of relief and supplies. we are getting our first look at the extent of russian influence in the presidential election. facebook now says 10 million people, paid for by russian entities. may not have uncovered all activities that attempted to interfere in the election, taking a look at stock, facebook shares up in the premarket at 48%. tesla badly missing its production goal of its model 3, badly missing it. they wanted to make 1500 model 3 ss but only build 260, tesla so there's no problem with the supply chain and that will address bottleneck issues very
soon. it was a pretty big mess on the production side. >> support for victims and survivors of the las vegas massacre pouring income of $3 million raised on a go fund me page thanks in part to a donation by the oakland raiders. monday night football honors those lost with moment of silence, it was not without controversy, the story next. ♪ can i kick it? ♪ yes you can ♪ can i kick it? ♪ yes you can ♪ can i kick it? ♪ yes you can ♪ well i'm gone
las vegas resulted in the deaths of innocent people. at this time please join us in a moment of silent reflection for the victims, families and loved ones and the heroic efforts of our first responders. >> with a black-and-white image of the vegas strip all players stood for the national and farms linked, not complete unity from the kansas city chiefs sideline, chiefs won 29-20. kansas city amazingly the only team that has not lost a game. the oakland raiders who will of the las vegas donated $50,000 to the las vegas victims fund, clark county commissioner chair set up and go fund me page that has raised $3 million. ultimate fighting championship based in las vegas, dana white pledges a $1 million amount to the families of those affected

followed jorge posada most of his career and i know how much his native land means to him to see him involved all these years later is very special, something he pointed out on the western part of the island people are not getting supplies. people surviving. >> a connection between puerto rico and new york. >> one quick thing as a racing fan, he is part of the 2018 nascar hall of fame class, famous engine builder, he has been ill but just want to bring it up. >> for doing something politicians are, knowing how to behave themselves, the crisis and tragedy focusing not on the politics of the moment but helping people and providing
relief. >> how much money these guys make and it is not on anybody to say it is my duty to have to do this. great to see people step up and say let me see how i can help. maria: catch jared's sports report 24/7 on serious xm 115, the latest on a shooting rampage in las vegas, we are looking for motives, "mornings with maria" right here. with fidelity's real-time analytics, you'll get clear, actionable alerts about potential investment opportunities in real time. fidelity. open an account today.

behind the deadliest mass shooting in american history sunday night, 64-year-old retired accountant stephen paddock opened fire on concert goers from the 32nd floor on sunday night. in doing so he killed 59 people, wounded more than 520 others before killing himself. authorities say paddock had 23 firearms in his hotel suite, some with scopes. at his home in mesquite, nevada they found an additional 19 more guns along with explosives, the browns of ammunition. jeff flock is on the ground with the latest this morning. >> reporter: tremendous volume of carnage shocked so many people, as we stand here on the venue where the country music concert has taken place we see an ambulance emerge. a good indication they are
moving another body, total of 59, what we are finding about stephen paddock, on the one hand doesn't fit the bill at all of someone who would have committed a crime like this. on the other hand his brother told the radio station in las vegas he didn't consider his brother to be normal, no indication something like this was in the offing. >> or anything -- >> no religious affiliation. >> no history of mental illness. >> he had a couple guns but they were all handguns, legal, might have had one long gun but had
them in a safe. >> a lot more than one. it is worth noting, stephen paddock did not have a history of mental illness, his father spent several years on the fbi's most wanted list, believed to be a suicidal psychopath was the way he was described. escaped from prison, beyond that no more answers. maria: the father of the bank robber who escaped prison on the fbi most wanted list. what did you hear in terms of reaction to stephen paddock's brother? you had a soundbite in your piece, he is baffled how his brother did this and what was going on. do people believe him? >> he truly seemed shocked. on the other hand he did tell this local radio station he
didn't think his brother was altogether normal, talked to him the last time during hurricane irma. 's mother lives in florida, a brother, apparently stephen called to ask how the mother was doing as a result of the hurricane. they were in partnership in some of the real estate deals they had done. brother eric said stephen helped make him wealthy like stephen had become wealthy from his real estate investments. this is bizarre. maria: something doesn't add up. jeff flock in las vegas. we want to bring in one of the witnesses, megan kabbalah, and recording artist jones. thank you for coming in today. appreciate you being here because you will give us a first-hand account. you were staying at the mandalay bay hotel where paddock was purchased when he fired the shot. tell us about it. describe the moment he opened
fire. >> i was actually staying in the hard rock. i was therefore a three day intensive training program and that night had a private meeting, in the foundation room at the penthouse level, our meeting ended at 10:00, 50 of us scattered, 10 went downstairs to the casino floor and i was up top and a few of us decided to go to the balcony at 10:07. maria: there was a balcony. >> one and only balcony up top in the middle. i stepped outside and a person i was with, gave me her phone, took some pictures but with 30 seconds of getting on the balcony i heard the first rounds of fire and i knew something was wrong and hurt again 30 seconds later. maria: was the balcony above the 32nd floor?
>> we were all the way at the top. maria: he was below you. >> yes. on the third round people started screaming. i haven't looked over the balcony yet. people started screaming. i looked over and i knew that fire was from up top. i started recording and you can hear in my video fire happening in the beginning, 10 second rounds and nothing for 20 seconds, 30 seconds, then 15 seconds, it was complete and total horror. as they were firing i could feel up top it was coming from the left side, not knowing he was 10 floors below shooting right below us. maria: you were on stage with bands big and rich before the shooting started. the crowd thinking god bless america. let's watch and we want to get your take on things.
♪ god bless america ♪ my home sweet home ♪ maria: looks like an incredible moment. what can you tell us? >> it was an incredible moment, a unifying moment, every color, creed, religion coming together thinking god bless america. an hour later people were gunned down. it was intense. it was intense. i can't explain it either then the fact we were so close to being shot. it could have been us. could have been john rich or big kenny or the veterans they brought on stage which his wife he pulled me onstage, honorary celebrity bartender for the veterans, pay homage to them.
the night should never have ended this way. maria: you spoke to a couple in the front row. >> when i got home at 11:45, to get my baggage, i asked this woman are you coming back from vegas, where you down there? she started bawling saying we were in the front row against the stage and pretty much said jason was singing, the round of fire, she heard it, nothing happened, no one moved. second round she turned to her left, a handful of people collapsed. third round of fire the guy in front of her was shot and collapsed and she and her husband tried to stop the bleeding, they were covered in blood. the worst moment was when the lights went up and in front of the stage, they were trying to get over the fence. was it just one entrance in and
out? she said yes, there was nowhere to go. they were trying to get over the fences and there were bodies everywhere, total horror. when i looked back, it was completely unacceptable. how many more massacres we have to have in this country before gun control is taken seriously? this is las vegas. why aren't there metal detectors? i am -- when i go to a va hospital in the bronx in brooklyn they are going through metal detectors. why wouldn't you in las vegas maria: you probably will see metal detectors now. >> the question is how long the shooting actually took place? do you have specific recollection of the >> from my personal experience when i got on the balcony, seemed it was already going on and when we came back into the
room with an ten minutes, the swat team stormed in on the foundation and to my knowledge it seemed it was a good half hour of shooting. >> when you were there, what was the first moment you knew something was happening? what did you see first? >> i was tapped on my shoulder and told there is an active shooter and we had to hunker down in the bar we were in which was 5 minutes away, we were literally 15 minutes from the shooter. we left, went to the next venue, five minutes away and immediately found out our friends that were still at venue where bunkering down or hiding, there were bodies on stage, around the stage, around. a really good friend of mine is john rich actually was performing and had to bunker
down and hide his wife with their baby on the 32nd floor. their hotel room. maria: you are still in las vegas. why are you still in las vegas? what is the feeling in las vegas today? >> it is my hometown and i whether it is foreign or domestic terrorism we can't conform to this way of life of being fearful of everything, fearful to go to a baseball game or concert. there is going to be constant fear and division. for me being from vegas, i don't want that to happen to the city. i don't want this city to cave because of terror. to me less guns don't equal less terrorists, just doesn't. doesn't equate. john rich was the only one
carrying a gun with the people in a bar bunkered down with seven rounds. if there was more than one shooter we had no chance. luckily he handed his gun to literally a police officer, fbi agent reporting an fbi agent, i am not certain, you would have to ask john rich, he was an officer and he handed his weapon to him and he is who protected the door we were bunkered down in for three hours incomplete fear. we did not know, we were told there were three shooters initially so we didn't know. maria: thank you, both of you, for sharing your stories, we appreciate it. coming up general motors ditching gas powered cars, the plan to go electric. and remembering tom petty, taking a look at the highlights of the legendary rock star's life straightahead.

>> it is reflexive. when you do something it can have an impact on the market you are working on. when people lever up in real estate prices go up and they lever up more. volatility as volatility goes down, people start doing things like getting long and short volatility, or an overlay strategy for individuals, selling options. on top there are these crazy strategies, their only criteria buying stocks is the volatility of the stock price. volatility, you buy more and at some point what does that do? it causes a bubble. i am on record, started writing about this in january, i thought we would surge 2800 which would
be equivalent of 29 top at 381 and have a crash. i'm a big believer in their isaac newton, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. maria: how significant a crash are you expecting? >> that is the hard part. normal correction is 38% with the recession and normal correction. if we make policy errors, talking about immigration policies, tariffs and trade wars, and do those things, who knows? maria: what is the answer? normal correction is top to bottom. >> the worst ever is 89%, not saying it will be like that but we have securities trading, exxon mobil at 38 times earnings, industrial conglomerate, should never trade about 15 times. dagen: no hedge fund manager has been able to trade their way

just -- off the charts. i have to say, though, that in just observing the telephone i mean the tv coverage, the first responders out there were absolutely splendid police, sheriff fire department ambulance people ems people also, the obviously hundreds and hundreds of people in the audience that were either veterans or trained in -- in certain medical procedures that as we hear more and more about it we are just heroes. >> jim, to training, how well trained was he? i mean steven paddock had 23 guns in his hotel room 19 other weapons in his home, what does that tell the fbi investigators in terms of the planning of this the training that he had? just year stumped it doesn't
make sense. on the phone: it doesn't make sense maria excuse me, obviously there was planning over a large span of time, there is no question about it. i mean i'm 50 years removed from almost 60 years, 55 years removed from vietnam i know sound of automatic weapon when i hear it, and that is what we were hearing. and those are military grade projectiles tearings of bodies how he had access moved semi you automatic to full automatic the investigation will figure out it is very strange there is not a lot of answers coming forward dagen: one anecdote i wanted to point out before we move on mike that is in "the wall street journal" today someone actually raised it online with me, that the -- the murderer sued cosmopolitan hotel a few years ago for 30,000 dollars
in medical bills from a slip and fall, and the judge actually dismissed the case and then ordered paddock pay hotel attorney fees, they had video surveillance of him, and he was wearing like gar bangy cheap flip-flops drinking carrying a bag with beer in it and fell he turned around and sued the hotel that is just one of the small details that, does this portrait developing doesn't add up. >> jim, mike. >> mike how are you -- >> good you and i worked a long time, talking about terrorism, and what the profiles are, and this case, doesn't seem as you said doesn't seem to match any type of profile we have ever chatted about, so the question to you what do you -- if you were running this investigation, what are types of things where is this going to take you? >> obviously the social media footprint the neighbors, what where else would you look to try to find out what made this
guy do what he did. >> i think you i just highlighted the main things no question about it. and, obviously, anything this guy has contact with anything he did over the past couple decades is going to be -- you know have to be looked at his relationship with his gun dealers, and you know who he knew what were capabilities what other people came into his life what does girlfriend know is she aware? what that is all about? and but you look at these mass killings over the decades, and there is usually you some explanation from a psychiatrist standpoint some relayingsship victims and perpetrator a category of four or five citied he deviations from middle he had no direct relationship that we know off to mass crowd, so what is the motivation?
we have to we have to look at that, what was he motivated by something in internet? who knows. >> that is what i want to hear on training how he was trained with these automatic weapons, and how skilled he was, and perhaps, at you know dissmbling, what do you rule out types of terrorism a early in the investigation one first thing they said no links to terrorism of course later isis claim responsibility for it nobody believed it they said this is a lie, isis is constantly claiming responsibility for stuff that they didn't, so we learn later maybe that's true what -- maybe that wasn't true. >> i guess i could say if first before that microphone i wouldn't rule out anything the federal bureau of investigation we ought to keep things open, i think appropriate to say that probably at this moment, you know, there is no -- there is nothing that you know shakes
the tree that it is terrorism but that is i i would not comment to the fact that -- wasn't motivated by something connected to terrorism, i would leave that on the table without question. >> could you speak to how much planning and training needed to go into doing something like this? how much time -- needed to accumulate for this person to get a to a point could pull off act like he did. >> i my immense training. >> where that is what i am trying to get at. >> could be nothing more than firing ranges number one having people you can learn quickly how to -- take military weapons apart put back together again, you can have a friend who is a gunsmith figure out how to move a weapon you can go back and forth hotel numerous occasions check into rooms a high roller figure out angles of attack read manuals tell
you how far projectiles will go doesn't have to be that sophisticated. >> the planning weapons explosives indicates this guy this is no random act this guy planned for a while sounds like potentially years. >> it is far away from random as possible certainly not a random act it was something didn't set this guy off, a week ago he does this, this has been going on for a long, long time. and why he picked that particular day you know maybe we find out may be we would be the. >> all right. a pleasure thank for spending time jim kallstrom we appreciate you joining us this morning, jim thank you. >> all those people in las vegas families. >> god bresthless them. >> stuart varney weighs in on market resilience that won't kwit to wells fargo chief executive set to face congress over phony account he scandal today what to expect from that testimony, back in a moment. kid.
